What works

Single player

What does not

  1. Installer will output "Please insert CD-Rom disc" if a mounted ISO image is used.
  2. Map scrolling lags and mouse stuttering/flickering.

All these issues can be easily be resolved - refer to the "Workarounds" section.



Launch Wine Config (winecfg) > Windows Version: Windows XP

The following is only applicable for ISO images.  Before installation can take place, we need to "emulate" the Red Alert CD.  RA installer detects that the correct CD was inserted by analyzing its label.  If the below steps are not followed then you will get the following error: "Please insert CD-Rom disc".  Since Wine Config does not allow us to change the label for an ISO, we need to execute the below steps:

1. Copy RA CD1 contents to a directory (say ~/tmp/ra1)
2. Launch Wine Config > Drivers > Add:
    Letter:    E
    Path:    ~/tmp/ra1
    Type:    CD-ROM
    Label:    RA1 (for Red Alert 2)  /  YR1 (for Yuri's Revenge).
3. Execute e:\setup.exe

The following steps are required in order to eliminate lag and mouse stuttering/flickering:

1.  Download cnc-ddraw (GDI, OpenGL and Direct3D 9 re-implementation of the DirectDraw API for classic games for better compatibility with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11 and Wine).
2.  Extract the zip within RA's directory.
3.  Launch Wine Config > Libraries:
        New override for library:    ddraw
        Click on "Add" button
4.  Click on ddraw (within the "Existing overrides") and ensure the "Load Order" is set as "Native then Builtin".

Once the above steps are completed, the game will run perfectly without any issues.
