Description

I recently got Red Alert 2 to play on Windows 10, but came across problems trying to start the game, stating "Error: Unable to set the video mode".

Set Compatibility

  • To fix this issue, I went into the C:\Westood\RA2 directory and right-click on Ra2.exe then click on Properties.
  • Next go to the Compatibility tab and check [X] Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows 7.
  • Click OK to apply the settings.

Set Resolution Manually

  • To fix this issue, I went into the C:\Westood\RA2 directory and edited the ra2.ini, changing the following parameters:
    [Video]
    ScreenWidth=1366
    ScreenHeight=768
    StretchMovies=no
