What works

The game will run, but there are some issues with the animated mouse cursor, causing the game to slow extremely.

Also, after a skirmish ends, the game almost completely freezes due to the animated scores.

Videos are a bit jittery, but ok to watch since they aren't usually very long. 

What does not

The installer. I copied the files from a Windows machine after installing and patching. After that it should run. 

Playing with original CD-roms seems impossible. I used no-CD patches. 

What was not tested

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

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.
