Hi There, 

 

We are big fans of this game and have been running around the internet trying to figure out how to play it, quickly got boredd of red alert on Steam. This is the OG. Thanks for setting this up pretty cool! 

 

I have downloaded the game from Origin onto a couple of computers, and the gentool program. Running on windows 10 home edition. I can load into the servers and see games but on attempt of loading them It 'says cannot connect to other players'. 

 

I know this has probably answered in the forums somewhere, though i have trawled through every where and I cannot seem to make sense of it.

 

Hacking into the mainframe and changing ports is a little beyond me, and it appears the IP matches in the program as a test protocol i put in. 

 

Any help would be much appreciated. 

 

C

We have all downloaded individual copies of the game from Origin. Where appear to be encountering the same problem. can sometime play 1 vs 1 with some with a little bit of port forwarding? Any helpful links to follow?
