Wielding strange new technologies and hungering for revenge, the Soviet Army invades America. Overwhelmed Allied forces, unprepared for the surprise attack, are decimated. Will freedom be crushed under the heels of Communist aggression. Red Alert 2 is another Real Time Strategy from Westwood the makers of the brilliant Command and Conquer series. This is one of the few RTS that really was modded heavily, and not just limited to new maps and or player models.

Description

This file makes Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge work on LAN even if you don't have IPX/SPX installed. IPX/SPX can be installed in XP, but not in Vista. The file is compatible with all versions of windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The file is already included in my mod, but I'm making it available for all that want network support for the original RA2/YR or other mods. To install this fix, just extract the .zip into your Red Alert 2 or Yuri's Revenge directory.

Thank you for this! I'll keep it in mind if I ever try and set up another lan game for RA2 (tried it once and it didn't work).

I will check if TS can also read a winsock file. If not, I'll have to come up with something else.

Be sure to also download Tunngle ( tunngle.net ), a VPN tool for playing LAN games online.

After creating your username, and installing Tunngle, just search for Yuri's Revenge room, and join.

See you :)

It should be noted the Internet part of RA2/YR i.e. XWIS will not work when this wsock.dll is present, the host will crash to a black screen and players will not connect.

But for virtual LAN's etc its fine.
