Error when I try to play C&C Generals online

Q: Error when I try to play C&C Generals online

C&C Generals works fine for offline play, and never crashes, but when I try to play online, it gives me an error. It says that 65544_65536_english.rtp is missing.

I have looked around for a solution and checked for updates and patches (when it says the file is missing, it offers to download it, but this doesn't work) and I managed to find the file to download it, but I have no idea where to put it in order for it to work.

As I said, the offline play is fine and I managed to play online without any problems on may old PC. Can anyone help?

Ok, so I recently bought First Decade, and have been trying to play various friends at Zero Hour, but I keep running into a problem.

After finding or hosting a game, we click launch, and the box appears detailing the processes the game is doing before the game starts. However, whenever it gets to the message "Waiting for probe response" it stops for a while, and then gives me the error message "Could not connect to other players."

I'm running the game with no firewall and no anti-virus programs running, just as it says in the manual, but it still doesn't connect. It doesn't happen every single time, but it does happen more often than it doesn't, and none of us know what the problem is.

My computer runs the game offline just fine, so I know my specs aren't the problem, and I have a 1meg broadband connection, which shouldn't be giving me any problems. About the only thing I can think of is that I'm on a Local Area Network connection, since I live in rented accomodation (yay for University), but that doesn't explain why it does work sometimes but not others.

I've tried the tech support FAQs on the EA website, and got nothing, so I turn to you guys... a forum I randomly found in a Google search

Any help would be very appreciated, many thanks in advance.

When I go to multiplayer > online, on C&C Generals it tells me I need to download some update, then I click okay to download a file called 65544_65536_english.rtp. Once the download is finished, it says click okay to exit C&C and apply the update (the game exits automatically when I click okay). When I go back on and try to go to multiplayer online, it tells me I need to download the same file, and this just keeps happening and the game quits. Is there a way around this problem? I really want to play against some people since I've done every mission and done all the skirmish stuff. I'd be very greatful if anyone can provide the solution. Thanks in advance.

Both my friend and I are having trouble logging onto General's online. We can manage a few minutes at most and then we get booted off. We have separate types of internet connection....

Me - 750 kbps Cable through a router.

Him - 512 kbps ADSL from Freeserve.

PC spec is fine.... P4 3.0ghz, 1024mb DDR ram, 37gb 10,000rpm HD.

Looking at the C&C Generals discussion board on the EA Games website shows that lots of people have had similar problems. Can't find the answer though

Any ideas?

I've been playing C&C generals online with a friend. I have dial up, he has broadband. I believe his game is running faster than mine, he seems to make more money, create more units much quicker than I can. He believes the game is running the same, as in, his game slows down to match mine.
The only other difference is he has a better video card than I.

Would the games be running at the same speed? Could he be able to make units/money faster than I?

Well first off my problem playing this game is when there are quite a few armies on the map at any given time. Game play slows to a crawl. Right around 1 - 2 fps. At times it goes all the way down to 0. This lag comes and goes. At times it makes no sense why its lagging because there isnt much going on in the game during that time. The point is the lag is so bad at certain times the game is unplayable. When the lag occurs I managed to look at my cpu usage. Its at 0 - 2%. I have been trying to find answers to this problem for months now with no luck. I have also contacted EA directly about this problem and they seem to not know what may be causing the problem since every reply I get from them is to update the game to the latest version along with my audio and video drivers. Well news flash! I have all of my drivers updated to the latest version.

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

Hello all,

I bought C&C First Decade again a few days ago. I found a cheap copy on eBay and wanted to play it again. Since the last time I played it I've gotten a new computer with Windows 7. Specs are more than enough to handle it.

Installation went fine. I opened up Renegade and it worked fine (or at least got to the menu). I exited and went to play Zero Hour. It tried for about 20 seconds or so, then failed giving a generic 'Serious Error' message about viruses, overheated hardware, etc causing it. I've tried quite a few fixes myself and searched online for a solution, but none seem to work. Can anyone lend a hand?

Here is what I sent to EA Games:

I tried to coach online with this game when I click on login I get "Acct information not found" then when I click on Create new/Edit existing acct I get "unable to connect to ea servers. Please ensure you have an active connection to the interent. I do have an active connection. I then proceeded to the tech help where I ran the UOTRACE.exe program and once it was done running in the bottom left hand side of that program
I see "buffer too small" It ran through 13 hosts all but one was green. I had one black one. I am able to play other games online.

Here is EA'S Response:

Connection issues are usually due to the configuration of hardware or software firewalls. First, make sure that the required ports are open. You may
need to contact your internet service provider to ensure that the ports are open on their end as well. The required ports are:

• UDP 3658 (Standard Game Play).
• UDP 9500 (News Ticker).
• UDP 6000 (Voice Over IP [VOIP]).
• TCP 13505 (EA Messenger).
• TCP 31320 (Server Communication).
• TCP 80 (HTTP [Standard Internet]).
• TCP 443 (HTTPS [Secure Internet]).

Now I am able to play other online games with no issues such as Swat 4 & BF-2

I have absolutely NO clue as to go about checking to see if these ports are open or how to open them.

By "internet drops out" i assume that it works fine when surfing ect. Also does the connection drop entirely when you try to play online, so you can't surf either or does it just stall?

8. Check the NAT/port forwarding on the router
9. Ping the online servers you wish to play on (if an adress or IP is available)

For some reason i cant play any steam games while an internet connection is active when i click on I.E. counter strike it tells me the game is unavailable and then norton internet security pops up with two attacking trojan horse virus's that change names everytime from ~16.tmp to whatever it wants later on. Norton says it cannot repair the file because access to the file is denied well if i go to the location of the file i dont see it but its says its in my temp folder so i just clean it out. Thats when i find a couple of wierd files that also change names from time to time and can only be deleted when i disconnect my router. They go along the lines of ~DF5BD3.tmp and there is always at least two of these files. I have tried everything and i mean everything. I have two computers on a network and it does it to both. They run over my linksys router so i even went as far as formating both computers and reinstalling everything. The problem is still happening. After the formats i tried plugging my cable modem directly into the computer to see if it might have been a problem with the router but it did nothing. So finally I googled the file names that norton finds and i scrounged around the forums becuase thats what google pulled up. I ran every program that you guys told others to run and i got nothing. Its wierd because i have no other problems except with online games i dont have any pop ups or any other strange activity other than this one problem. Another example is when i try ... Read more

I have a BT Voyager 2100 wireless ADSL connected by cable to my primary PC and by wireless to my second PC. Communication between PC's isn't great, but neither have much trouble accessing the net, which was the prime objective.

However, I play online golf and am now having difficulty with this. I have found pointers from Microsoft and am exploring Post Forwarding. However, I am required to have my DNS Address. I have made enquiries with my ISP - BTInternet Yahoo/Broadband and the info I get back is extremely helpful:-

DNS = auto

I find that when I try to incorporate this in my TCP/IP Properties n my attempt to create a static IP address,I lose all Internet connection.

I would be grateful if anyone could offer some help or guidance.


A:Online game play

Setting a static ip on your computer should not be a problem but did you set it as the same ip family of your router's ip. EG: if your router is your ip should be 192.168.1.XXX/ (xxx = any number from 1 to 254 excluding your router's ip) and your gateway should be pointing to your routers ip and DNS set to your isp or you can even set it as your routers' ip

There are several ways to find what the problem is. The best is to go into event viewer (type eventvwr in search). Event viewer (local) and look for the critical errors listed in the last day, week, etc. Then go to the windows log>application tab. Finally the windows Logs>system tabs.

You want to look for critical errors (they have red in the left column ).

When you find them you want to look for critical errors that say app hang, app crash, or anything that relates to the problem.

When you find them please note the event ID, and the source codes and tell us what they are.

One site sends an error message that there was a java error and other sites such as Iwon just download a blank screen. Sounds like I'm missing an application on my pc, but no clue as to which one or how to get things back to normal.

Hey, I browsed briefly through the other threads so if this was already answered forgive me

Starcraft is my game of choice, and recently I have just got a new computer with wireless internet. However, for the last 3-4 years there has been an ongoing debate within my family on who is the better Starcraft player.

Today I was going to purchase another copy of Starcraft to install on my computer. There is a wireless network through my house. Before I made my purchase I wanted to check if I would be able to play with/agaisnt my brothers using two different computers hooked up to the same internet connection.

Thanks in advance.

A:Can same IP play games together online?

You will be able to play over the network. When you go into multiplayer go in to the tcp/ip one I think(someone correct me if I am wrong) and you will be able to play as if you were hard wired together. Me and my brother play games against each other over our wireless all the time. Also, Starcraft doesn't require different cd keys if you are playing over a LAN so you should be able to just burn the copy you have and use the same cd key.

Ok so sometimes I can play Battefield 2 just fine online but the inconsistency of my signal I believe to be a problem. I get randomly booted from games for my ping dropping out way too often. About 1 out of every 4 games, and its always random when I get booted.

Wiring up is not a solution, I am about 100 feet+ away from the router in the house if I had to use a cord. I am only 15-25 feet away from the router in reality using a straight line through the walls... My signal is always Excellent and I check my speed online and it always is around 23 mb/s.

How can I get a more consistent signal? Nothing I have tried has worked so far...

I am very interested to buy the network adaptor for the ps2 but have a few questions regarding it. I know I need broadband connection (512) which I do have, I need the network adaptor and ps2 ethernet cable and a memory card. The ethernet cable dpoes come with the network adaptor but the adsl modem is about 8 meters away from the ps2. Also i was wondering does the ethernet cable have to join into the modem because my modem only has one slot for a cable to go into and how else would it get a connection to a phone. I noticed on pictures of the network adaptor it has 2 slots can a ethernet cable from my computer go into one and a phone line into the other? i also have a mod chip and was wondering from people who have this network adaptor does it still work online?

Hi. Yesterday, I got 2 Blue Screens in my Windows 7 Home Premium. I have an HP Envy laptop. I had updated my video driver (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850) earlier in the day (although I experienced similar Blue Screens with my old video driver version too...the old one was also the Mobility Radeon HD 5850, just an earlier version). I was trying to watch an online video in Internet Explorer 8, and I got a Blue Screen. So I had to do a manual shutdown. When it started up again, I chose for Windows to check online for a solution to the problem (but Windows never got back to me with one, if it found it). Later on, when trying to watch a YouTube video, the same Blue Screen appeared, and once again I had to do a manual shutdown. It may be related to my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850, maybe even other things which I can't be sure of...also, I mentioned that I got similar BSODs with my old video driver version too. At that time, I'm pretty sure I was using Firefox instead of IE when trying to watch the online videos. By the way, I was able to watch several Youtube videos normally yesterday, but on one occassion I did get that BSOD. Also, here is what at least part of the BSOD said (on both occassions yesterday): "Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed." Please help..thanks.

In the last few months I've noticed a problem with the screen picture quality when playing DVDs or watching online TV. The picture is very dark and no amount of tweaking the Viewsonic E75 Monitor view controls helped. I went to pcpitstop and their tests noted poor video graphics (see specs below). Dell has no newer graphics drivers for my os; VS monitor driver has never installed correctly so I've always used Plug and Play. Using third party software I have tested my pc and got no notable problems on the video graphics card (non-pci) and the controller checks out too. Any ideas on what may be causing the poor visuals? Should/can I upgrade the vid card? Any input is appreciated.

Hello everyone. I'm coming here because Google has pretty much failed to help me effectively with this and I hope someone debugging-savvy can help.

Lately, I get BSOD crashes during Online Play (specifically Left4Dead and Aion, I have no other online game at the moment). Before these things started, I never had any troubles with these games or online gaming in general, so I'm stumped. There is no common factor to these crashes except that they happen during online play. Other than that, no regular times or intervals and no specific actions I'm aware off, and my husband, who sits on the same network is not having any troubles at all.
I tried catching the bluescreen message itself, but even though I turned auto restart off, my computer immediately reboots every time, not giving me the chance.

I am running:
Windows XP Professional, SP3
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N
Video Card: nVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB (G92GTS)
(I don't know if you need any other values, I never had to do something like this before)

I updated my video card drivers, my mainboard drivers, my tablet/mouse drivers, checked for Windows Updates, but still get the crashes. I wish I could say if I changed anything about my system when the first crash happened, but back then, I thought it's just one of those rare, never-to-happen again errors and gave it no further thought.

A friend has a Fujitsu Siemens desktop running fully updated XP3.

Audio CDs play well using Media Player but any kind of online sound isn't produced, including tracks from YouTube or soundtracks which play in the background on some PPS slideshows that do the rounds.

I've looked in Device Manager and nothing is flagged and all devices are reported as working normally.

Could someone prompt me as to where to look next please?

Thank you

Good Day.
I installed Windows 10 a couple of weeks ago without any incident. However, this week I have noticed that I am unable to play any videos in my hard drive (regardless of format or video player... tried Windows Media Player, VLC, the photos app) or online (like in youtube or facebook). When playing videos on my hard drive, the video player is blank and doesn't play (although VLC shows the filename and the track length just fine). When playing videos through a browser (I use Chrome) the page simply crashes without playing the video.
I have also encountered a browser error where Shockwave Flash isn't responding. I have only one flash player installed so it's likely not a conflict issue on my browser.
Processor: Intel Celeron CPU N2840 @ 2.16GHz
RAM: 2.00 GB
System Type: 64-Bit
Any help on this issue will be much appreciated. Thanks!

A:Videos (online and offline) won't play

Personally I would suspect a video driver incompatibility, or missing codec.  From your description of your system, I am GUESSING that the computer does not have a discreet graphics card.  You should go to the computer manufacturer's website and see if you can locate, download, and install a newer video driver.  That might resolve the problem.
Even so, with a Celeron processor and only 2 GB of RAM for a 64-bit OS, that computer is going to struggle with any serious graphics editing and playback.
Just my guess.  Hope that it helps.  Let us know how you make out.  If that doesn't solve the issue, providing us with more computer specs (make, model, etc.) might help the really knowledgeable folks here to provide you with a definitive answer.  Have a great day.

Hi. In my office there is a Windows 7 PC that all of a sudden stopped being able to play games online. Games act like they load but then stop. Games on Facebook on just simple games like Freecell out on the web. Also any video that pops up in a separate window.

We have ESET antivirus, I have also run Spybot, and Anti-Malware. I have checked the browser for add-ons and have found none. This happens in all browsers. We mainly use Mozilla. There have been no other changes to this PC, the network, or the UTM in our office.

Any thoughts?

Perhaps they are blocked by your IT personnel.

A:Windows 10 can,t play dvd or movies online.

You need to install VLC. Windows 10 did away with playing DVD's and Microsoft is now charging $15 for a junk DVD player. VLC is free.

This is worth $15? give me a break

I have seriously tried over 30 free online games and none of them work. I can't even play WOW. This problem has existed ever since I got this computer. I have tried disabling my firewall, making exceptions for programs, adding the correct ports, turning all security devices completely off,(disabled anti-virus programs,etc.) Re-installing, manual patches, I'm tired of this problem. I have absolutely no clue as to how I can fix this problem(which is why your the experts and I'm not lol =p)

I will tell you any information you need, here's a starter..Computer specs:
Model:eMachines W3506
Processor:Intel Celeron D CPU 3.20 GHz
Graphics card:ATI radeon xpress 200
Hard drive:80 GB(with 57GB free space)
Network:10/100Mbps Ethernet lan
Modem: 56 K ITU V.92

Haha yeah I know, crappy computer right? lolz
But it's good enough to play a freaking 2-D game..but guess what? It still doesn't work!!

A:can not play downloaded online game


Lets try a general cleanup first

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

Also, what is the full error message that you're getting, and when do you get it? On logging in, or playing a game.. etc?
