Additional Comments

I installed the unofficial Patch for The first decade, removes copy protection. Also i need to install a cracked Ra2.exe otherwise the game will not start. Yuri however does start without problems. For the lagging of the game i used this patch: I appled the lag patch in a virtualbox winxp because it needs net3.5 to run. But after all these hassle it works like a charm :-D

Performance issues
The game is much slower than it should be, but it may still run at a good speed depending on your computer.



-- UPDATE --

Speed Fix


  1. Create a new file, ra2fix.reg, somewhere in your Wine C: directory.
  2. Open the file, paste the content above into it, and save.
  3. run wine regedit and choose Registry->Import Registry File
  4. Import ra2fix.reg
  5. close regedit

If the game does not run correctly after these changes, remove them.


Add the following lines to ra2.ini:


If the game does not run correctly after these changes,remove them.

Network Play

IPX is tricky, and is fortunately no longer needed. Someone has written a patch to use TCP/IP instead.
  1. Download the LAN patch from
  2. Save it in your Red Alert 2 folder and extract it.
  3. Open winecfg or Wine->Configure Wine from the application menu.
  4. Add an overwrite rule for wsock32.
