I don't know forsure. Though I would say it's where your using the same cd-key on both PC's. Try a different one provided here. As I've got my lan working. Though I am using different keys.
Sorry in advance for opening a new thread, but I couldn't find anything regarding my issue in the previous unlocker threads.
Heres my problem,
I here people talking and talking about the Red Alert 3 Beta unlockers making the LAN accessible. So far, I have tried every unlocker (1.5 down to 1.0) trying to get my LAN to work. I have the option (above skirmish) but when I try to connect to another computer, it sees the game but refuses to join. Doesn't crash or anything, but just will not join. I don't know if this is because both games are running the same serial or if im doing something wrong. Im at the end of my rope! Everything I try fails miserably.
Does anyone know whats going on, or know a way to fix this?
One computer is running Vista and another XP SP2 if that matters at all.
Ok, it seemed that was the problem. You cannot connect 2 computers together thought LAN using the same key. I used another RA3 Unlocker that let you change the key and I was good to. I hope I can do this with the 1.5 patch. I really want to see those new superweapons!
I'm sure that someone will figure out how to make it work with 1.5 soon. If not the full game will be released soon. Though if you want to change the key without that unlocker program just hit start, run, type regedit, then look for ergc for ra3 it contains your key. To edit just double click and change your code.
I'm on my iPhone right now or I would tell you exactly where to find it.
Can you sure your key changer so we can post it up for everyone in a similar situation?
hello everyone... i'm just new here in this site and i need some help how this game work. because i install the RA3 but once i run it.. it give me error saying this (Wrong disc inserted. Please insert the original "Command and Conquer Red Alert 3" CD/DVD.) can any one help me how to remove this error so i can play this games. thank you in advance and waiting for answer...
PS: I'll upload that file when I get back to my house.
Here is the unlocker that I used that allows you to change your product key which enables you to play RA3 LAN with only one installation code. I cant remember if it automatically generates a new LAN key, but if not, just enter one from the Red Alert 3 thread here: http://digiex.net/games-downloads/24...formation.html
Be warned that I have only used this for version 1.2 of RA3 and I haven't yet tested it on 1.5, though I really want too!
