    Kane's Wrath sudden desktop crash

    Looks alright. I'm told 1.02+/1.03 has a bug where the game crashes if the AI tries to build Mechapedes. Does the game crash if you play exclusively with GDI/Nod?

    What are your system specs? Which version of the game are you playing / where did you buy it? Do you use any mods?
  3. Yet another surprise patch for the Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection has arrived yesterday, reporting ingame as 745903.1. It's a small one, with the differential download "weighing" a mere 112 KB on Steam, and features new digital signatures in the executable and main DLLs, as well as fixed support for Intel Xe Graphics chipsets on Gen 11 and 12 laptops with Intel processors. Sadly, no other fixes are featured. Here's the official word from Petroglyph Games' senior producer Ted "VirtualTed" Morris: Hey everyone, Today a very small patch was released to fix an issue around the Intel Xe graphics chipset, commonly found on Gen 11 and Gen 12 laptops with an Intel processor. If you were using one of these laptops and frequently ran into crashes after playing for a short time or even upon startup, this update should address that problem. Thanks for hanging in there while we fixed, and then spent (a great deal of) time testing this updated before rolling it out. -VT This comes during Petroglyph's period of focusing on an unannounced game for a separate publisher, so it's highly unlikely any future updates will be made for the Remastered Collection. Meanwhile, EA's side remains silent regarding the franchise's future.

    Ion Cannon question.

    By the events of C&C3, there was already a network of ion cannons as per the intelligence database: https://cnc.fandom.com/wiki/Intelligence_Database

    1.5 & 1.6 C&C Patch?

    I don't think the script author knows what they're doing... Tiberian Dawn's 1.06 patch has been around for about a decade and it doesn't require 1.05 to install. Also, it doesn't mention a thing of what it does to other titles. Thing is, even on Windows, TFD is a bit tricky to fully update these days: https://cncnz.com/features/technical-support-help-guides/fully-updating-the-first-decade/
  6. If there's a ddraw.log in your RA2 directory, submit it to the CnCNet RA2 forums or their Discord. They maintain the launcher and some of the renderers. https://forums.cncnet.org/forum/56-red-alert-2/
  7. False positive for sure.

    What's happened with Renegade-X?

    No idea on the specifics, but ya, sadly the domain is still in the hands of someone who's doing nothing with it with a seemingly dubious rights claim. The true community was first on ren-x.com as a replacement but now that's just a redirect to the Totem Arts site.
  9. No need to post the same thing in four different subforums. https://www.origin.com/irl/en-us/store/command-and-conquer/command-and-conquer-the-ultimate-collection

    What's happened with Renegade-X?

    You're behind on the news for about a year or so; there was an internal divide between the devs and one ex-dev who commandeered the most common-used domain for a short while. Said ex-dev had exactly 0 community support for what he was doing so it went nowhere. Anyway, Ren-X is very much alive: https://totemarts.games/forums/topic/79341-renegade-x-patch-563282-patch-notes/
  11. Change the renderer in the CnCNet client until it works for the main executables. Different ones work on different PCs, so there's no single solution.
  12. After a successful first version, GenPatcher 2.0 has finally arrived. As before, this tool streamlines the installation, patching and configuring process for C&C Generals and Zero Hour on modern systems, implementing multiple fixes at once and tackling pretty much all known causes for problems in setting the game up. This new version, which had been in beta since November 2021 and downloaded by 3000 users, introduces new fixes and also incorporates optional downloads such as GenTool, ExiLe's Control Bar Pro, GenLauncher for mods, Leikeze's hotkey preset, Adriane's modified Worldbuilder, and over 100 maps. Whether you're playing alone, casually with friends or competitively, this tool is an absolute must have. It comes in online downloader and full offline bundle versions, so you can even plan offline LAN parties like in the good old days. Full information and downloads are available on the author's website, Legi.cc.
  13. YR AI has been rather softened compared to vanilla RA2 AI, never figured out why. What you can do is use CnCNet's YR client and run skirmishes from there. When setting up a match, you'll have a "Brutal AI" toggle which will essentially fix the AI's problems and bring it to RA2 levels.
  14. Yeah, that's a bit of a problem. You need to replace all instances of inheritFrom with the relevant data from the XML(s) that your current file refers to. It's tedious, but it's the only way it can work.
