How to Install Rise of the East

Rise of the East is not a standalone mod and requires files from Red
Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge in order to function. It is also recommended to
create a separate folder for the mod and not to extract it into your
existing Red Alert 2 directory if you have CnCNet installed as it will
overwrite files. It's recommended to install the mod somewhere with
little admin requirement such as your Desktop folder or the like.

Below is a list of files needed from your vanilla Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge folder:
gamemd.exe (patched to v1.001)

Installation Guide
Installing the mod is very easy, just follow the steps below and if
you run into any issues during installation or after please refer to the
troubleshooting section further down the page.

Step 1 - Download Rise of the East here
Step 2 - Extract the mod folder somewhere
Step 3 - Copy the 7 files mentioned above from your RA2:YR folder to the mod folder
Step 4 - Run the REClient.exe file to open the client

Once the client is open, it will prompt you to configure it (if
it is your first time). It will also scan for any updates available.


I have 2.1/2.2 installed, can I install 3.0 over it?
No, 3.0 is not compatible with earlier versions. It simply changes and adds too many
things. Installing it over existing builds may introduce visual errors and cause online desyncs.

My game won't start, my client keeps minimising then coming back up
Can be a common issue if the game failed to open via Syringe, simply try again. Otherwise:If that does not work check task manager for any gamemd.exe sessions and force close it, then try again. If the former 2 solutions do not work, restart your PC then try to start a game.Still not working? Please reach out to us via Discord.

I keep getting a Syringe.exe error when I launch a game!
Try giving your client
admin rights. (right click on REClient.exe > Properties >
Compatibility tab > tick "Run this program as an admin" and hit OK.

I get a white driver warning message in-game when using ReShade
The most recent NVidia driver update is the cause, it currently only happens with CNC-DDRAW and
may not affect all but has been reported by a few. Disable ReShade or
use a different renderer.

I get a qres error upon launching the game
Screen mode not found: x=(numbers) y =(numbers) c=(numbers)
To fix this, open your Windows Settings and navigate to Display. Then look for Scale and Layout.
Search for the drop-down menu underneath that says "Change the size of text, apps and other items"
Set this to 100% and the error should be fixed.

My game is unusually slow, laggy or otherwise performs poorly
The main cause would be not using the appropriate renderer for your PC. Try out every renderer which you can find in the options, and see which runs best for you.

My mouse is lagging ingame
Your computer or settings are not optimized for ReShade. To test this, while in-game press
the home button on your keyboard and change your preset to the OG one.
If your mouse moves smoothly then it means either your renderer
selection or your computer specs is not suitable for ReShade.
Alternatively you can disable ReShade via the client Options.

"Couldn't find executable" at game start
This is the issue of not having the required RA2/YR files in mod installation folder.
"FATAL String Manager failed to initialize properly" at game start
Close the client first. Give Syringe.exe, gamemd.exe and REClient.exe admin rights (run as admin) and try again.

I can't start the client, I keep getting an error or a Kabooom message!
Go into your Resources folder and try opening all of the following until your client works: clientdx.exe,clientxna.exe,clientogl.exe

If none of the above work, please go on our discord and upload your client.log file to the #bug-reporting channel.
Your client.log file is located in the Client folder.
