Try on low resolution 1024 X 768, 1024 X 720 or similar.

This is copy/paste from creator(3.3)

You need these Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge 1.001 files to run.

- BINKW32.dll
- BLOWFISH.dll
- gamemd.exe (patched to version 1.001, can't have NPatch or Rock Patch, can't be cracked or 1.000)
- ra2.mix
- ra2md.mix
- language.mix
- langmd.mix

Multiplayer version from XWIS won't work anymore as its gamemd.exe is incompatible with Ares.
Do not put 3.3 files to where 3.0 is if you still have 3.0. I recommend uninstalling 3.0.
If you get 'Unable to set video mode' or 'Failed to initialize' errors, set gamemd.exe & Syringe.exe Compatibility Mode to XP SP3.
Also set 'Run as Administrator' for gamemd.exe, Syringe.exe & MentalOmegaClient.exe.
If it doesn't start matches, try rebooting your PC after setting all of these and see if it helps.
