  1. I downloaded RA off the internet today got it installed and running. Works fine except the screen is completely mashed up. I can barely see what I'm doing, any thoughts anyone?!

    If your operating system is Vista or Windows 7, try changing the compatibility mode to an earlier operating system.

    i got it working now, had to go into the Red Alert Windows 95 Setup and set the buffer video memory to on or something, works like a charm now!

    For Reference to others, Right Click on the program -> Properties. Click on the Compatibility tab at the top and tick the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Win 95 (Or the system that the program ran on on its release)
