And there will be more if you can fix the bugs that are preventing people from being able to run the game. I know there is at least 14 different people including myself that want to run the MOD and can't.

What issues are you having and what OS are you running? I'm going to assume you have tried other renderers.

One thing that absolutely could be preventing the game from running is anti-virus, as lots of Heuristic Analysis processes will absolutely flag Syringe.exe as malicious due to the nature of how it works. Sometimes these Anti-Virus won't tell you what they're doing at all, and sometimes they won't even allow you to exclude it. For instance, Avast has problems like this all over the place with programs. There was a time where Avast false-flagged WarCraft III and would totally delete it without telling you at all and without your permission, making it quite difficult to figure out what the source of the problem was.

Another possible problem is lack of certain software packages. I'm not sure what the newest version of Visual C++ Redistributable RA2 can use is, it probably does require something though, but I wouldn't doubt the newest it could use is like 32-bit 2008 (9.0.30729.0 to 9.0.30729.6161) or 2010 (10.0.40219). I'm not too sure if RA2 requires .NET Frameworks or not, but if it does the latest version I have is 4.7.1 so I don't know if any newer version than that will work or not (Not like that matters anyway because unfortunately unlike Visual C++ .NET Frameworks doesn't let you have multiple installs)

If you're on Windows 10, I think there is still some security problems that prevent RA2 from running under certain circumstances, one possible solution to this would be turning off UAC. If you're not completely computer illiterate, UAC is a largely useless feature anyway and is an extremely invasive and annoying feature that often times won't tell you what it's doing in the background. You also probably don't have to do a FULL turn off (which requires regedit modification) which should simplify that.

Hunting down for other ddraw.dll hacks may also be a necessity. The pool they have, while works for a lot of people, still isn't going to cover everything.

Right now I am suffering from a "blitter error" which occurs when I move 20 squares from my base at the start of any match, causing the game to crash.

Can you show what the error message says, exactly? Like, take a screenshot of it or something.

I'm by no means a diagnosis expert, but I'll make a guess and suggest you to alter resolution and Windowed mode on/off. It might be a cause of your error.

AlexB seems to be aware of your issue, looking at that thread. In the mean time I think the only thing I can do for you is give you the only DDraw hack I have that I don't think the launcher has. The reason why I haven't tried giving this DDraw Hack before is because IIRC the last time I used it, it was quite buggy but it might work for you:

Mediafire.com

Not certain if it will actually work, but it's worth a shot. It might also be worth trying to find others on your own, too.

I'm not even sure where I got it from, because it links back to some dude's website but I can't find it on there. There is some DirectDraw hack on his website, but it's just uncompiled code and I'm not even sure if it's the same thing as this.

Well, the hack itself didn't solve the problem, but it pointed me in the right direction to find the cause of my problem.

Great achievement. The Almost in APYR grows more insignificant with each update.
