I'm assuming people realise you need the same version of the game to play with each other online, if you don't that's quite a large oversight in development? This is also the modding section of the forum, if modding the game is an exploit why have a modding section or make the game modable at all? ...

This is technically an exploit, unless everyone agrees to using these changes I highly suggest you don't use them on pain of everyone hating your guts.

It also runs the risk of causing desynchronization due to an inconsistent game state across players.

Logs are in My Documents/OpenRA/Logs but considering that it isn't crashing, it may be a driver problem. You shouldn't need the CG toolkit with an nVidia card btw.

The .openra folder in your home directory will be hidden in Nautilus (the file browser) by default because of the '.' prefix (rather than a file attribute for hidden items, *nix uses the '.' at the start of a filename to indicate a hidden file or folder). Try pressing Ctrl+H and you should be able t...

Try checking out the "next" branch with `git checkout next` and see if that helps.

Where did you get the code? CS1501 is the result of the incorrect number of arguments being passed to a method, indicating to me that you haven't got a copy of the latest stable code.

As you might be able to tell from the error message, you graphics card/GPU is not able to run OpenRA. I know the original game ran on hardware more basic than a crappy current day cellphone but OpenRA requires modern hardware to do things like support resolutions an orders of magnitude bigger than t...

The first error is a common one for unsupported Intel GPUs, try installing the Nvidia CG toolkit (needs registration) and passing "Game.Renderer=Cg" to the game as a command line option. The second one is a bug in a third party library, I don't know why exactly it's happening but it may be trying to...

There is zero chance of OpenRA coming to any smartphone platforms at this stage. Our only viable option for porting it would be MonoTouch for iOS and MonoDroid for Android but they aren't mature or feature complete and they are not cheap to license. There's also the fact that the iOS appstore licens...

Well it seems like your GPU driver is lying and doesn't properly support the features it says it does. Have you tried using the CG renderer as detailed above?

Seems like one of the mix files is corrupted. By the look of it Sounds.mix. Try copying over it again or if that doesn't help, delete them all and let the game download our minimised copies.

We can't do anything for you if you don't tell us the problems you are having. The installer for Windows should have everything you need to install and play the game.

enginuity is right, it isn't possible to compile OpenRA on anything earlier than VS2008. However you can download Visual Studio Express from Microsoft for free which is perfectly functional or if you are a student, it may be possible to get a copy of the full version through your university.

OpenRA has always required .NET 3.5 or later. I'm not sure why you'd be having problems now, have you recently reinstalled Windows or otherwise changed your system?
