hello, im new. just wanted to see if i couldnt play a couple online games of the best RTS franchise ever. lmao.

 

im trying to launch zero hour but i cant... i dont exactly know whats wrong. i bought the C&C collection off origin but i dont think that's the issue.

 

basically if i try launching generals it says "missing required file: ssleay32.dll".

 

and when i try launching zero hour it says "zero hour installation not found"

 

im not exactly sure what im missing? any help would be appreciated.

The Launcher is for Red Alert 3, Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath only.

 

For Generals, please use Gentool instead. :)

 

 

If this is about the Ultimate Collection, please install bibber's fixed launchers to avoid connectivity issues with players that does not own the Ultimate Collection.

Please could you open Windows PowerShell (type PowerShell at the start menu) and in the window type and enter

 

Test-NetConnection peerchat.server.cnc-online.net -port 6667

 

 

Then post the output in here.

This picture shows how it looks like when it doesn't disconnect ^^ that was my bad. Like the question last time, do you know how to fix this problem? :( I'd love to play with my friend online, but I still can't figure out how to help her connect online

It's a possibility that the provider might be blocking something or even doesn't provide IPv4 support.

 

She could try to use an alternative solution such as an VPN Server to see if that helps solving the problem.

 

Usually VPN Servers bypasses blockades. If you or your friend is worried about the bandwidth, you could give Windscribe a try which comes with 10 GB monthly.

 

We also suggest to check the in-game Network Settings and set that to the VPN's IP to avoid connectivity issues that might occur.

 

 

EDIT: I forgot to mention, please use a server near your location in order to keep the latency relatively stable.

 

 

 

 

How much does Windscribe cost?

If you are a light user, you can use Windscribe for free. You get up to 10GB of data per month, and you can use all of the tools we offer. If you need more data, for just $9/month you get unlimited usage. You probably spend 10x that on coffee alone!

Oh, actually we found out the problem. She's using her University's Wi-Fi and you know what that means... many things are blocked  :whatoa:  anyway, when she switched to her cell phone's hotspot, she could finally login ^^

Last problem... we still can't play because it says we can't connect with each other when attempting to create a skirmish game with each other -_- Baby steps... Baby steps... Now we know that she simply needs a better connection to the internet for her laptop :)
