Time for the RA2 client to regain support for the LAN patch

27 March 2013 - 11:41 PM

This is a question/suggestion mainly directed to Olaf.
As you should already know there is a new LAN patch made by CnCNet. This LAN patch is fully open source, is being continuously improved, compatible with C&C 95, RA1 and RA2, and is - in contrary to the previous LAN patch, fully compatible to xwis and other online services.
The current RA2 client is not supporting the wsock32.dll - I don't know if this is done explicitly or if this is just a side effect. Anyways I think that it is at the time to re-add support for the wsock32.dll; I don't see any reasons against it.
What are your thoughts on this?



Vote for Red Alert 2 on gog.com

13 March 2013 - 12:03 AM


I recently saw that there's a vote going on for Ra2 to be added on GOG.

Ra2 has already got quite many votes and it would be cool if you could add yours :)


GOG (good old games) is a quite well known game platform that does not use DRM.



Here you can give a vote: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/command_conquer_red_alert_2



Also consider voting for this. Everybody would benefit :p

Ra2 Quickmatch Resolution patch?

03 January 2013 - 12:46 AM

Hi, where can I still find the Ra2 Quickmatch reso patch? It isn't in the downloads section and all other links I found are dead (like this one).
Only the Yr reso patch is still available: http://xwis.net/forums/index.php/files/file/5-yuris-revenge-cd-quick-match-resolution-patch/

I can't use your update because I still use the LAN-Patch.

Yuri's Revenge downloads unavailable to the public

09 December 2012 - 06:18 PM

I noticed that all the yr downloads (exept for "Yuri's Revenge Multiplayer") in the downloads section are unavailable to the public (non-registered users):

Sorry, you don't have permission for that!

Should be fixed ;)

Also after I registered I had no access to nearly any forums until I added my serial Ra2 number. Is that intended? It's kinda weird because u can access those forums even without being loggeg in!

Last but not least how do I comment a download in the downloads section? I can't find any button for that...

best regards

How to play LAN with XWIS Ra2 multiplayer edition

08 December 2012 - 06:10 PM

Hi, I installed the Ra2 and Yr multiplayer version from your download section.
I like playing via LAN with friends and to get it to work properly, I always used the UnderStorm UDP-Patch with the CD version.

But now with your version this doesn't seam to work. First of all I noticed that there is no serial entry in the registry and no woldata.key file, so that could be a problem but could be easily fixed, I think, by just adding those files.
I did read in the forums that the UDP patch could make problems with online gaming, however the major problem is that Ra2 and Yr won't even start with the wsock32.dll in the install folder and I get the following error message:
Attached File  error_message.PNG   34.27KB   213 downloads
It's German but I think you get the meaning.

Is this a bug in the new release? Can it be fixed?
And why wouldn't online gaming work properly with the UDP patch? Isn't there a way to unite both?
Please give me some insight :)

best regards
