  1. I'm having some trouble playing LAN on Red Alert 2. I have it all set up and we can both join the lobby screen and see each others names. However the main computer (Host computer of Network) keeps crashing when I try to join the others game when they have created a room. As soon as I click on it everything just freezes up.

    Also, when I make a room on the host computer, the other computer doesn't pick it up at all and cannot read any messages I type in on the Host computer ether. Can anyone help me out? This is really annoying :dead:

    Any help would be greatly apreciated :)

    check for network issues first, like IP addresses, workgroups etc. then look to see if there's a patch for it (RA2 is an old game..)
