Redalert (yes old game) cannot see other computer via multiplayer network option!
Posted on 2006-05-03
Aim: To be able to play Redalert on my home network with two (may be three) computers.
Problem: When I go into redalert >> network multiplayer option on both of the computers. From each computer, I cannot see the other computer!
Question: How can I get the computers to see each other through the game?
Steps taken so far:
I have set installed Redalert (yes old but gold) in windows XP on both computers using the compatibility option for Windows 95 (under properties of the setup file) .
I have also done the same for the RA.exe file so it runs under compatibility for Windows 95. The game runs fine on both computers under XP.
I have installed IPX/SPN under (My network places > properties) and setup the network option to 802.2 and network address (just below 802.2) to 00000001 on the first computer and 00000002 to second computer.
Many thanks in advance guys
