No idea when, but when I go to XWIS.net and hit the support forums, I get 404 Not Found.

This can be worked around by placing a ? in the link.








The same goes to the Download section:

Highest Resolution

02 September 2018 - 05:18 PM

Whenever you run RA2YR (or even TS), can you set the resolution of at least 2560x1600?

If so, do you have a resolution option that increases the 2560 width but not the 1600 height?

Does that option work? How far can you widden the resolution without increasing the height of 1600?

XWIS: "Wrong resolution? I kill you!"

Long story short: I primarily use XWIS' multiplayer/skirmish-only components (or the RA2YR version that doesn't include campaign maps and movies) because it's faster (start-up loading only) and actually runs on that blasted Win10. (skip to the last paragraph for the actual problem)

But I ran into a problem a while ago while making my Supremacy mod: Whenever I play on 640x480x16, the campaigns load up just fine.
However, once I change the resolution to 1024x576x16, either by manually editing RA2.ini or in-game settings, the game "encounters a critical error and needs to close. We apologize for the inconvenience. Do you wish to send an error report to MicroBrains' SlaveHouse?" (LULZ!)

I theorized it was because proper loading screens were missing. However, extracting load.mix from the RA2 I have from way back and actually chking the one in XWIS' ra2.mix, proved that to be false. XWIS will always crash on 1024x576.
Swapping XWIS' EXE with the old I still have proved it. (XWIS crashes on higher res, old EXE works at high res)

Does anyone know why XWIS always crashes on mission loading-screens when playing at resolutions higher than 640x480?
It's kinda annoying to test and debug maps on low resolutions. Especially when I'm still using my HP Mini right now.


Oh yeah, 800x600 res doesn't work for my HP Mini. It's reset to 640x480 (if the screen sizes are any indication).
