  1. Hey guys i need some help, My game doesn't seem to work as it only shows black screen when i'm in game, like the actual in game where you load the map. its just black. ive repaired, run as admin, changed settings from high to low and vice versa, compatibility mode, everything and still doesnt work. Also my game doesnt work(and by work i mean get into the game but still stuck with a black screen unable to pick teams or walk or anything) unless i tick on dedicated server. otherwise if i tick off the dedicated server and press start it just crashes saying "Renegade has encountered an internal error and is unable to continue normally" I can get in on online servers tho like i can actually play fire and stuff and not just black screen. Windows 10 crashdump.20180403-090144-r9972-n1.dmp.zip
  2. Here is a zip of 3 crashdumps I just had on Pacific Threat. I heard we can debug those again now. I tend to crash pretty often on various levels. It makes my whole graphics driver lock up and have to reset. I have a Nvidia GTX 750 Ti if that helps. crashdump.zip
  3. Intro I've been sick the past few days, so I thought I have a look at what's happening in the old Renegade Forums. I came across an announcement post by Jerad for ECW and couldn't be more excited! Many many years ago I remember playing RP2 online. I remember being on a certain beta version for a long time and flying around in the interior universe, exploiting !save/!load server-side commands to slowly gain Z height through terrain. I never did work out how to get into the weed house, but I think I discovered a secret mod/admin area above an interior once. I also never discovered how to get to Halo island. Much sadness. Then came a major new RP2 release which reset all of my server-side progress and stats. A few days (?) later everything was reverted and the RP2 downloads were pulled due to scripts licensing violations. During my time in the Rene community I made some particularly poor Renegade Comics and some magic-eye stereoscopic imaging. I might have actually been on the RP2 forums, but I believe they are long gone. I used to be nicknamed 'Dthdealer'. It's a shame RenHelp.net isn't around anymore, a lot of community-contributed tutorials were lost when that site died. I had a tutorial there about making generic bbox physics objects and it had a video/gif of me knocking down a giant tower of dominoes with a Nod buggy. I don't think I'll ever see that again. Somewhere around this point (~10 years ago) I stopped playing Ren. I recall I wasn't able to play the game any longer on my computer, or something along those lines, I used to (and still mostly do) live off old hardware. The last thing I ever remember reading about RP2 was a blog post about optimising the swimming code to require less tests per second. I remember trying to load up RP2 in LevelEdit once and wondered how the hell you guys managed to put a script zone across the entire map's ocean. Script zones would always bug out when I tried to make them that large. Anyway, enough with all that. I owe a lot of what I am today to Renegade. I'm really eager to try UCW and see what the community is like here , but unfortunately I'm being held back by technical issues. Apologies if the rest of this post reads a bit harsh, it documents my experiences trying to get this game to work. Aside: I'll be judging the quality of this project purely by how nice Mount Chiliad is. No other metric matters. W3Dhl: Linux+Wine Background: Renegade (and most games) work great on Wine these days. Renegade itself has worked for years, and I was able to get help from JonWil on renegadeforums with some TT patch issues. Support for the latest versions of dotnet is another story. [Insert opinion about MS making dotnet intentionally hard to get working on anything but the latest version of Windows] W3Dhub install $ wine w3dhub_launcher_0.8.3.1_install.exe The dotnet461 step fails. Thankfully the people who wrote this installer are kind and let the process continue if this happens Hats off. I've had installers that immediately and automatically delete all progress when any error occurs. Trying to get W3Dhub running First attempt: The entry point method could not be loaded due to Could not load file or assembly 'PresentationFramework, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. assembly:PresentationFramework, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35 type:<unknown type> member:<none> It looks like we need dotnet. So let's try installing dotnet 4.5.1. Now when I try to run W3Dhub I get even scarier errors: 0012:fixme:wer:WerSetFlags (2) stub! 0012:fixme:heap:RtlSetHeapInformation (nil) 1 (nil) 0 stub 0017:fixme:service:svcctl_ChangeServiceConfig2W SERVICE_CONFIG_FAILURE_ACTIONS not implemented: period 86400 msg (null) cmd (null) 0019:fixme:process:SetProcessShutdownParameters (00000380, 00000000): partial stub. wine: Call from 0x7b44021b to unimplemented function mscoree.dll.CorIsLatestSvc, aborting wine: Unimplemented function mscoree.dll.CorIsLatestSvc called at address 0x110023:0x7b44021b (thread 0019), starting debugger...

Even running it unattended with /q leads to some fun, such as mscoree.dll going AWOL. With a bit of playing in a few fresh wineprefixes I manage to get as far as getting some form of W3Dhub GUI, but only in the form of an error message: Unresolvable hostnames would be all and good, but I've never heard of hostname parsing problems :D In all of these tests: no errors.log or diagnostics.log files were created anywhere. W3Dhl: Windows XP VM As you probably know: no longer supported by W3Dhub. The installer runs fine (apart from dotnet461 failing) but the final W3Dhub executable is in a format XP cannot understand. W3Dhl: Windows 7 VM The dotnet 461 installer failed again, claiming my OS is 'not supported'. All other mixtures of no dotnet, dotnet40 and dotnet45 lead to error messages like these: As it turns out: dotnet461 was refusing to install because my Windows 7 install was an old (pre-SP1) version. After a few hours of Windows update I was able to install dotnet461 and launch W3Dhub. Huzzah! Or so I thought. The files for ECW all download, but then nothing further happens. A little "installation failed" message appears at the top of the window: This time W3Dhub has loaded far enough to create an errors.txt file. Three types of message are repeated inside of it (full log attached): -------------------------------------------------- 2018/01/31 19:01:47 Application version: 0.8.4.0 W3D Hub Launcher.exe -------------------------------------------------- An exception of type System.Net.WebException occurred Message The operation has timed out Stack Trace; at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream(TransportContext& context) at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream() at W3DHub.Backend.BackendWebClient.CreatePostRequest(Uri uri, Byte[] postData, String contentType, String encoding) -------------------------------------------------- 2018/01/31 19:01:47 Application version: 0.8.4.0 W3D Hub Launcher.exe -------------------------------------------------- An exception of type System.Exception occurred Message Error whilst calling https://secure.w3dhub.com/apis/w3dhub/1/get-news Stack Trace; Inner Exception (System.Exception) Failed to create request Stack Trace; -------------------------------------------------- 2018/01/31 19:37:22 Application version: 0.8.4.0 W3D Hub Launcher.exe -------------------------------------------------- An exception of type System.Exception occurred Message A game installation of type INSTALL failed. Reason: One or more packages failed to download Stack Trace; From my uninformed perspective they don't look useful. Restarting the W3Dhub program and trying to download ECW again through it: same error. The 'download' process is much faster, however, so I suspect it is just re-hashing the already downloaded files. Installing ECW directly: Linux + Wine ECW's website has a directly downloaded installer. Unfortunately I'm also heavily out of luck here. On Linux+Wine the install succeeds. I can't run ECW.exe (likely due to the dotnet problems) but I can try and run one of the game[drawdist].exe's directly. Unfortunately I get this when I try: I wanted to ask for help on the ECW forums, but I think it might be better to ask here, given what they currently look like: (Although for all I know this might just be the metagame of ECW. I don't know ) Installing ECW directly: Windows 7 VM Installer completes successfully. I try and open the game launcher: Hmm, update process does not seem to work. I'll try selecting 'No' and continuing: Hmm, servers must be down. Nice transparency, however. I'll try playing a LAN game. Eek. How about launching game100.exe directly? A new window border briefly flashes, then disappears. Then the exe terminates and I'm left back at the prompt. I cannot see any log files apart from log.txt, which has a mod date of 2014 and does not get written to during this process. Re-installing the game does not fix any of these issues. Questions (1) Is this the best place to ask for help regarding the bhs.dll error, or should I ask over on renegadeforums.com? (2) Should I use the http://expansivecivilianwarfare.com/ forums at all? (3) Does anyone here have this game working on Windows 7 or Wine? (4) Any tips for what else I can try on any of my operating systems? Regards, a lost, sick and confused dave's arrow. errors.log
  4. Hi everyone, I have this Installation Failed problem whenever W3D Launcher has finished downloading the files and then installation always fails when installing "msvc-2013.zip". It won't go anywhere beyond that point. *Here's what I've tried to fix the problem but to no avail: - I have cleared the APB cache, deleting everything in "C:\ProgramData\W3D Hub\Launcher\package-cache\games\apb" - Re-downloading all Red Alert APB files through the launcher, no download problems. - Download finished smoothly but installation fails every time when installing the "msvc-2013.zip" - I've repeated the steps above for 4 (four) times and still stuck on failing to install the "msvc-2013.zip" Hope anyone knows a workaround for this problem. Kindly thank you for your time and attention lads, best regards
  5. So recently, I noticed that Red Alert: A Path Beyond got an update, but when I tried to update it, it keeps saying "Installation Failed". I checked the details and the file "RA_RiverRaid.zip" was failing to install. All of the other files that it listed were marked as "Downloaded". It's annoying because now I can't play. If someone knows what's going on or has a solution, please help.
  6. Good morning all. I'm trying to install the latest and greatest update to ECW in order to play the game however it is not allowing me to install the Always.dat 2 / 3 . zip It downloads all of it however it just says "Failed" whenever its done downloading all the content. So it's an issue of installing it. To remedy this I have tried to click "fix" and reinstalling it but to no avail. It was working before I had to update so idk whats included with this update but it isnt' going to compatible with my computer. I will try a couple more things and report back if I find a solution but please help if you know anything. Thank you.
  7. Dudes, I have a problem with W3DHub launcher. I have 0.7.3.1 installed, but it is asking me to update every time. If I do allow it to update, I get this: If I abort the update, launcher starts in offline mode. I am using Windows 10.
  8. After some messing around in the settings of ECW, I found and set the multi-sample anti-alias in the BHS.dll options. Now whenever I try to load the game, it always gives me a black screen. Not even the known ways of working around the black screen issue in 'Testament's Tips on Surviving ECW' work. Now what?
  9. When I'm trying to do the tutorial, the game crashes, I made it through the first part for parachutes, but the second one hit me next. I do have a crashdump for it now. will be in the spoiler box so it doesn't show up as a massive wall of text. will report more bugs when found. Tanks.

  14. I stumbled across someone's Medal of Honour Warfighter profile page and noticed that there is an animated American flag behind his soldier. I figured out that that whichever country you represent that flag is shown here. http://battlelog.battlefield.com/mohw/soldier/txarngsf13/stats/890011176/ps3/ My request is can someone find the flag line when viewing the page's source? I want to save these animated flag images for use elsewhere. I tried looking myself but I'm not familiar with this stuff. Thanks.
  15. The versions of the launcher post 7.0.2 crash when I try to view the server browser. Visual Studio offered to run a debugger and came up with the following exception and to break the operation when this occurs Running with visual studio did not bring about this error.
  16. Why do I get those VERY VERY ANNOYING internal error message stating the Renegade can not work normally?
  17. Attached the crash dump. crashdump.20170630-192405-r8481-n1.dmp
  18. What is block cheat and why is it banning me when I'm not cheating or anything(I'm able to join when I try again)? Why do I sometimes get an Invalid name error message when I got to join in(Also able join when I try again)?
  19. Hey, as of last night the forum has been slow to submit posts, getting stuck on 'saving' after hitting the button. It'll stay for about 20 seconds then either submit or freeze.
  20. So I've heard about this mod and I have renegade: does anyone know how to actually install this mod (I have renegade on origin). Or get ahold of Kaskins.
  21. The kitty of death has returned! So after a hiatus from FPS video-games entirely, I've decided to come creeping around old haunts again, and ofc I come back here! Y'all care to please inform me as to what has happened with all you and the game as well. I'm already acquainted with the new guard duty and the hilarity that is lunar paradox (I see some new logic there pushwall) but other than that no clue what has happened. I left when raap revealed the siege guns for RA_Seige, that is the last thing i remember. Also this community mafia... how does one join such madness? And what happened to hostile waters!!! TY in advance.
  22. When I open a .dds file and change the texture, how am I suppose to save it? I remember from a long time ago that you're meant to save it a certain way but I don't remember how exactly. Who can provide or link to information about skinning and Renegade? Thanks.
  23. The forum removes, instead of relocation the forum location shortcuts at the top of the screen ( Home > General Discussion > Help & Support) This applies at least for 1080P when half screened (This is a built in windows feature). As I am often busy I usually have two windows half screen as I can work on both back and forth quickly, and most things handle being half screened fairly well... However these shortcuts to move around the forum completely disappear for me. Which is likely not an intended feature, as they do not even come close to taking half of a screen. TLDR; Can anything be done about that? Having to full screen to have access again is a pain. EDIT: Forgot to mention I saw it in the green bar, but is it not possible to have extended tags, rather than only 1 level up?
  24. Well, hello, my friend cant install APB (TSR was installed correclty tho) it crashes during a patch installation (he doesnt remember which one), just after always.smth Antivirus awas disabled and w3d was runned as admin He has already tried a trick from here, but still failed please help Aaand there are some files u may need: errors.log diagnostics.log
