    Trying to play yuris revenge over LAN with windows 8


    Hello! I am trying to play Yuri's revenge over a LAN. my problem is that when I click on the "Network" tab it stays on the main menu. This problem is usually fixed for windows xp/vista (Never had a window 7 so I don't know about that) by downloading the "wsock32.dll" and placing it in the game folder. Windows 8 comes with a wsock32.dll, and when I copy it to the game folder and try to click the "Network" tab nothing happens. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hello,

    Try this one:
    RA2/YR LAN fix (XP, Vista, W7 - x86, x64) download - C&C: Yuri's Revenge Game - Mod DB

    Confirmed to work fine.

    It's called Understorm TS/RA2 UDP Patch, since there is no more IPX available in Windows.

    Cheers!

    Thank you for the reply, and sorry its taken me so long to get back. I have already downloaded the wsock32.dll mentioned in your post. I am sorry that I did not state this in my original post. The patch does not work with my windows 8 laptop.

    Thanks!

    I've tested it out with two identical game installs/copies: it works with the same wsock32.

    Make sure the game is allowed through firewall (anyone you use), that the two or more games installs on two or more computers are identical (in version and mods) and that each game install has its own unique serial key.

    Also good to mention that I used YR v.1001 with Npatch AE on two Win8.1 x64 installs.
    The gamemd.exe launcher has compatibility mode -> reduced color to 16bit. That's all.

    If you still have issues, try to post some screenshots that can explain more about this.

    Good luck
