Hello everyone, 

 

A few days ago I bought Cnc ultimate pack, and installed CnC Generals Zero hour, then registered on cnc-online.net, and on revora forum. I played a few games online but then this problem appeared. Every time I try to play, I start the game, everything connects fine, but as soon as the match starts timer disconnect appears and it counts down every player I'm playing with to 0, and I can't play multiplayer games with anyone. I don't know what the problem is so I would be very grateful if someone helps me to solve this.

 

I have GenTool installed and Cnc Ultimate Collection pack installed, and I have set up compability mode on windows xp service pack 3, and I'm running the game as administrator.

My nickname in game is Dzeno22, e-mail adress is dzenan.s1999@outlook.com.

 

Thanks in advance

 

PS: Sorry for my bad English, greetings from Bosnia and Herzegovina.

alternatively, another thing you can try is downloading an ipv4 supporting vpn like windscribe free vpn https://windscribe.com/ for which you should then create and verify your account. Once it’s installed you should have a little windscribe window on your desktop, open it and in the upper left corner you should see 3 stripes, click them, and then locate the debug menu where you should find a switch called Ipv6 which you shouldn’t touch yet as windscribe underwent an update and therefore this guide needs some work, by default Ipv6 is turned on however we want to turn it off which will require a pc restart, after the restart  windscribe should pop up automatically and to get it working with the game do the following:

1. make sure that NOTHING is draining data in the background (with a verified windscribe account you get 10GB of data monthly for free which is sufficient for just playing the game)

2. activate windscribe and wait until it’s connected, as soon as it is you can check again if anything is draining data

3. launch the game

4. in the game’s main menu go to options -> settings -> network

5. change your online and lan ip to the second available option (that starts with 10 or the one that does not match any of your ips that you might have been using with Hamachi or something)

6. connect to generals/kw/ra3 online (note that it can take a few tries until the game will let you connect)

7. start a match with your mate and see if it works

8. if it doesn’t work then try to change host and change who is using windscribe (for example you use windscribe and he doesnt but if it won’t connect then he should try using windscribe and you should disable it)

9. in some cases it can change who needs to use it over time, sometimes even both players need it

For any questions etc. ping me
