The first decade is patched to latest version v1.02.

Screen freezes and graphical corruption on ingame toolbar at same instance when playing. Only get this problem when play other people online. Happens virtually every time, with both games.


When I reset PC (yet again) after a freeze - Windows produced a dump file upon reboot which is also shown below, along with "serious error" contents and dxdiag log.

Serious error contents:

Well, I seem to remember when EA bought Westwood and left Yuri's revenge filled with glitches in the network code. 50% of all 4 player Yuri's revenge games would crash.

Yuri's revenge was so unstable we pretty much had no choice but to go back to RA2 vanilla. Anyways, I play Dawn of War now, you should try that out, it's much better than RA2.

TFD had enough bugs to sink a battlship. Theres an entire thread on the official forums for special game fixes...

I've gone so far as to re-install the origional games, as they actually seem to work.
