heh, yep, ive done all that. im thinking maybe RA2 doesnt want to let me log in because ive never logged in with a proper WOL account. is it possible it wants me to create an account through it first?
ok, well I just logged into the XWIS server for vanilla Red Alert 2. I simply went to Internet>custom game which took me to a login screen where I typed in my username and password and hit enter... next thing I knew I was in the lobby...
and then I got kicked from the lobby... apparently some dutch bastard has been using my serial number and cheating, because my serial has been banned... sigh, I think I've got a mess as big as you do now.
Anyway, You may want to run the program again, make sure both IP numbers are the same in the two boxes... if not click set. Perhaps you have an out-of-date version, I have the most up2date (that I know of, checked earlier today) version of the switch at the link in the other post. So you may want to try that one if your still having trouble.
EDIT: I stopped by Strike-team to try and fix my serial problem, and I notice that you can check to make sure the XWIS server is applied by goign to my information. Under preferred server it should say: "XCC WOL IRC SERVER". If you still need help, I suggest you stop by http://www.strike-team.net the whole first page is dedicated to helping you with the XWIS.
