I've only that tested that Syringe loads it and it's playable.

What's new?
    - Most of the spawner has been rewritten in C so maybe there will be fewer crashes .(probably not, though)
    - Alt+F4 will surrender and quit the game. (Confirmed with cnc-ddraw and ts-ddraw)
    - There is a version number included in the dll.


I've added a small amount of code that's capable of  doing string rewrites to rename mix/ini files. And gave it a new home.

Tested and works.

Any chance of sharing the source code (public or private)?

Someone found a bug and I've updated the original post. (Crash at 5D6C21 and AI not aggressive against each other)

Is there a version that comes with the file expansion (MD.INI, MD.MIX, etc) so mods with custom expansion can use this?

Hello, are you still maintaining this? I've given it a go and it loads and works great which is a god-send, just one issue. I get an instant crash to desktop in skirmish when clicking the button to access the Diplomacy screen.

Tested with latest CNCNET client 7.7 in vanilla YR with all mods disabled, just running Syringe w/ the cncnet5.dll. I've tried all DDraw renderer options and all have the same issue. Running on NVIDIA RTX GPU and 8th gen i7.

Did you have all AIs on your team? It crashed because of that on my end: only one team playing.

Nope, it was a 1v1 with no teams, in fact.

Aha, that seems to have done the trick. Good enough, thanks!
