Encountered a problem? Read this first: http://mentalomega.c...php?page=issues
Otherwise, report all of your issues with launching the game or the client here and we'll see what can be done. Once a solution is found it'll be added to the page above.
But before you report them, make sure you did everything as written on http://mentalomega.com/install
Do not report gameplay bugs and balance issues here!
Remember, you need these Red Alert 2 Yuri's Revenge 1.001 files to run.
- gamemd.exe (patched to version 1.001, can't have NPatch or Rock Patch, can't be cracked or 1.000)
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. If rebooting helped, let us know.
If the game does not start anyway, try to launch it, find syringe.log file created in folder with Mental Omega 3.3 and upload it or send to email@example.com
To make custom maps work, add them to /Maps/Custom subfolder and make sure their extension is *.map
Notice: If you decide to include your debug file contents in the post, at least use spoiler tags. Preferably though, just attach the file.
