I'm a hobbyist modder and a programmer with a will of creating great mods and games for myself and especially others to enjoy. I've written the Client for the two most succesful C&C Tiberian Sun mods ever released, The Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection, and I'm also a SP and MP mapper and the AI coder of The Dawn of the Tiberium Age. I've also made the official CnCNet Client for Yuri's Revenge, and I'm working on a (currently) unannounced indie game. If you have any feedback or questions related to my work, don't be afraid to post in the comments.

My CnCNet Client, originally made for The Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection, was recently selected as the official CnCNet Client for Yuri's Revenge.

While some UI changes to the client were made by Iran, most of the code is still by me and so I'm able to answer any questions and assist with any potential issues that you might have with the client.

Official download page: Cncnet.org

As you can see on the CnCNet network status page, there's already a very decent amount of YR players online, so if you're interested in YR, there's plenty of people to have fun with. Other than that, my main project, The Dawn of the Tiberium Age, has lately also had some players online every single day, with usually a peak of 5 games being played at once during the week and more during weekends.

I'm naturally glad to see my code being put in good use, and I'm also glad that DTA has lately been active enough for me to get some fun matches on multiple days in a week. Right now I'm working on expanding the client with new features and I'm also working towards Tiberian Sun support, including support for any smaller Tiberian Sun mods that various modding community members might come up with.

This time I have a problem to report and I am unsure if I report this to CNCNet or to you, so here goes.

This is for CnCnet YR:

I am currently trying host a map and everytime someone try download it the following happens:

I.imgur.com

I even tried to use 2 machines on same IP to see if it still happens, and even than the downloading fails. Do you have any clue how to resolve this? This happens with every map. I would like to host games too.

Other unrelated issue is that lately a lot of times during version checking (starting the client) I receive "Update failed please check firewall and some URL" and I am pretty sure my internet is stable but its totally random and sometimes I need open the client 5 times for it to work. Is it cncnet or something else?

Besides that I am still having a blast playing RA2YR :)

The CnCNet server was under a DDOS attack at the time you wrote the message. It caused all tunnel servers to go offline, which naturally made it impossible to play.

Hi,

First of all I want to thank you for the work you have done to make Yuri's Revenge online a thing again, XWIS is so dead, glad to have this again.

I have a request. The client (CnCNet) runs pretty heavy on my PC and once a game started the client keeps running in background (in case you end your game, you can go back to game room, I know)

But basically its very rarely for a second game to happen on same room and its easily possible to close the client (CnCnet) during playing because once a Yuri's Revenge loaded you no longer need it, and re-opening it after a game takes only like 5 seconds.

So basically what I do now when a game started to prevent huge load on my PC is tabbing out once a game started and closing CnCnet client, which basically resolves the issue. However, is there a way to make the client do this automatically once a Yuri's Revenge game started? This not only resolves the load on my PC but also noise that still comes fromn CnCnet's client while playing.

Cheers and thanks again.

You're welcome =)

I'm not sure if it's worth it to implement such a feature though. The client isn't (or at least shouldn't be) really heavy at all, and you've been the first player to ask for such a feature. The problem will also correct itself when you upgrade your PC, assuming the problem is lack of processing power / RAM and not an issue related to the operating system or other software.

How large is the in-game speed difference between the client running in the background and it not running in the background? I've yet to see any performance impact from the client on any of my systems.

Heya,

The speed is pretty much the same but my PC starts to blow with the client in background, while it isn't without it in background. Although I admit my PC is old, so perhaps thats part of the reason.

If I am the only one that asked it than its indeed not worth it. I'll just keep do it the way I do it. I am thankful enough that I can enjoy Yuri's Revenge again, since the game is a lot of fun.
