I found it after a long & frantic search, now you don't need to hassle yourself with shortcut keys, & blank screens, this one is brilliant —no flicker. I'am so thrilled !! Now I can alt+tab to the trainer after the game starts —there are some perks, for some Cheat Engine table records can only be toggled once the game is on (+28 trainer & Paradrop (CT Table) come to mind.) Here's the link, look for the last post in the same page: https://fearlessrevolution.com/threads/red-alert-2-and-yuris-revenge.1026/ Direct link: https://fearlessrevolution.com/attachments/ddraw-rar.9580/ (Put the dll in your game folder.)  :bananas:

Thanks I'm having trouble running Yuri on my computer

I might be able to help ! First check your compatibility settings (XP SP3, Run as Admin.) Also see: http://patrikkopac.blogspot.sk/2015/09/c-red-alert-2-yuris-revenge-windows.html (for guide to setting up YR.) You might want to get CnCNet Lobby Launcher which is free forever & will fix all your problems like crashes, blackscreen etc. on Windows 10. But the downside is it has an anti-cheat system so trainers won't work.  :smash:  Just follow my first post link to get the DDraw.dll which supports alt+tabbing (so you can use the Cheat Engine Table for Godmode & cool stuff like that) & you should be good to go. I think you will also need the CnC Graphics Patch, but that is extraneous AFAIK. Let me know what problem you are encountering & I will gladly help. :thumbup2: Link: https://cncnet.org/red-alert-2

LOL, bring back the memories. I had cleared that game without any trainer or tutorial which took a lot of time but this game is still my favourite.

Hi

 

I just found this during a Google search - thanks for posting this!

 

I have a problem, though. I could not get access to the Ddraw file: the direct link no longer seems to work, and the post doesn't provide a link, but asks for a PM to get emailed the file. Unfortunately I was unable to register for the site (so I could send a PM), because it requires answering a challenge question which seems to be bugged. :smash: 

 

Do you know any other way I can get the Ddraw file?

 

Thanks ...

I remember this game very well... it was fun, I must say. Maybe I can get back to it again some time.

Sorry for the delay, here you go ~> https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/nqvsxvek5ttxvrm/ddraw.rar
P.S: It's most unfortunate that it isn't available anymore. Use my cloud storage link.  :wink: Just a dll you put into your game folder.

Glad it worked ! Cheers. :) P.S: It is said you need to go to menu screen first by pressing escape, before you Alt+Tab, so the game doesn't crash\ hang-up. But it's iron-clad & stable.
