Disappointment!! (in Off-topic)

..my old Command and Conquer: Red Alert game only works with Windows 95. =(
right click on the exe file itself and click on the compatibility mode...
If that doesn't work I might have another solution for you, but since you're on dialup I'd have to send you a CD...

Nah, novice, it's the install file, not the program itself
February 21 2008 2:57 AM EST
installer* not necessarily any particular file

If only you didn't have dial-up! Life would be so much sweeter for you, dear.

that's why they made C&C3 =]

I borrowed The first decade from my friend, only to find that CnC 1 and RA1 run perfectly... except at half speed. I've been playing pretty much everything else on the disk, though. Finished RA2 yesterday and am a bit through Tiberian Sun today. I have had (most of) these games forever, yet didn't play the story mode of any.

Forsaken - I know it! If only it was available...
Khardin - You are a god amongst men. Thank you.

Harrumph. I finally got RA1 to work, thanks to Khardin!
...so I play it for a little while, fun nostalgic gameplay, and I decide to play Red Alert 2. Installs just fine, being a newer game, yay! I go to play it...get to the first mission, the Fort Braxton mission, and it freezes -every- time a small movie opens up.
So I go to Google. A number of other people apparently have this problem, but NOBODY offers an actual solution. Boooooooo.
Now I'm mad at my computer and I'm just going to go watch TV. I hate you, Microsoft.

ooty, Microsoft is punishing you for making the moon go away, which they own.
or create a virtual pc that runs win98SE and play the game.
too bad you cant play online, you and GW versus me would be funny to watch ;)

Pfft, I would own you.
And yes, I'm 100% confident in my boast because I'm on a dialup connection and can't prove it. Nonetheless, I would own you. ;'D

Henk - tried that link, followed the instructions, did nothing for my movie freeze-up problem. =(
I also tried online advice to add a new line to the ini file - did nothing.
Anyone else? =(

patched to version 1.006, the latest version...didn't fix it.

Let's stop talking about NUB forgers and focus on the real issues at hand here people!!!
I still can't play RA:2!!
February 22 2008 12:32 PM EST
I've got a better idea..
OB you should play SC with me :3.
It's too bad I don't actually know anything about computers, or else I would try to help you. (>'.')>
