C&C Tiberian Dawn Windows 10 Support

Question

Hi fellow C&C fans,

I've been trying for a couple of days to get C&C 95 working on my Windows 10 Laptop with no luck.

I've followed FunkyFr3sh's instructions (C&C 1 (Tiberian Dawn) Installation on Windows 10) and downloaded and tried a few different versions i could find of Nyerguds patch with no avail.

Depending on the settings/compatability modes i try, i get the following outcomes:

1: Game opens, goes to play the Westwood intro and freezes about 2 seconds in (as some of the ripples appear before the text). No audio plays. Games goes non-responding.

2: Stops at a black screen.

3: Opens the main menu instantly, but clicking on any button causes the game to go Non-responding.

Can someone please help me work out how to get it running?

If anyone knows how to get the DOS version running through DOSBOX (with full Audio & music) I would be more than happy with that, but ideally the C&C 95 version.

Thanks in advance!

Follow those instructions. There are 3 steps, you need to do all 3 steps. In step 1 download Complete No-CD game installation pack (v1.06c r3, no videos, all music included) After step 1 then close nyerguds site and move on to step 2 where you download and extract the updated config tool. Then do step 3 where you disable all compatibility settings.

After this, you can go back to nyerguds website and install movies and music.

3 steps.

Hi dkeeton,

Thanks for the quick response. I've repeated those steps about 5 times now, but just to be sure, I un-installed, then followed all 3 steps exactly.

1: Installed to C:/westwood/C&C95 "cc95v106c_r3_u4_full"

2: extracted all the config files into the game directory "td-config"

3: disabled the win 95 compatability that was auto set on the C&C95.exe (all other tick boxes blank)

Then tried the game and got result 3: Opens the main menu instantly, but clicking on any button causes the game to go Non-responding. no music playing at title screen either.

After writing the above, i've gone and installed the video "cc95v106_videobase_eng.1" but didn't do anything for the music as it specifies that it's already installed in the installer.

I then ran the game again (checked that no compatibility was checked) and got the first issue i mentioned "1: Game opens, goes to play the Westwood intro and freezes about 2 seconds in (as some of the ripples appear before the text). No audio plays. Games goes non-responding."

Anything i'm missing?

Could an audio or video setting/resolution be crashing it at a certain point for some reason?

Thanks again,

Can you make a screenshot of your game directory.

Tried both and no change, still 1: Game opens, goes to play the Westwood intro and freezes about 2 seconds in (as some of the ripples appear before the text). No audio plays. Games goes non-responding."

just tried window mode for all graphics options, still pretty much the same result, slight variations in the first few frames, but all crash in seconds.

i'm about to try disabling no-cd mode and reference the CD, which it keeps saying 'please insert' even though i have it virtually mounted to F:

do you know where the reference config is for the CD?

Found the CD config location, that didn't help.

just went through and tried every compatibility setting from Win 95 to Windows 8 and no luck.

Still keep getting the same result, see screenshot for where it freezes and 'non responding'

When you extracted td-config, did you over write every file conflict?

Can you try to install it into My Documents rather than C:\Westwood.

oh my god... so great to hear that intro and opening again. Epic.

Got it working... but with some really weird steps, i'll detail them below and perhaps you can help work out what i did wrong? (maybe we should add it to the guide or something).

i installed to My Documents.

This didn't appear to make a difference.

i copied over the td-config, this time NOT overwriting existing files.

still no good, all this time keeping in 'no comparability mode'

Then i ran CCConfig and disabled 'Use CnC -d Draw (enables advanced options) and set the game resolution to 648x480 and it worked!

i checked the C&C95.exe afterwards and i found that it set the Comparability to Windows 98/Me, so maybe that was part of it, but it didn't work earlier.

Thanks again for all your help.

      Hi,
      I've been trying to play Tiberian Dawn in DOSBox and have some questions about it. I'll start with the playlist:
      Is the game supposed to play Act on Instinct at the start of every mission? At the fourth GDI mission this seems strange. I was more expecting the game to play predetermined tracks at the start of new missions.
      Also, I think I noticed the game skipping tracks in the playlist and I saw no reason for that to be happening.

      Thanks in advance

      Custom map previews are enabled again!
      This gives a great advantage to specialty maps, you can actually make it stand out so players will actually stay and try it out, and also list the required map options in the image

       
       
      Funky even made a little tool that creates the code, to put in map. A simple drag image on top of the tool and voila,
      Create custom image (256x256 pixels max) Drag image on top of CnCNetPreviewGen.exe Download   copy code of created file into your map save map, restart cncnet, pick map, click on blue WARNING button, give me your checksum+map name   Reply with checksum and map name here, or pm me whatever u want
      Then i'll whitelist it!!
      Give it to me like this example:
      5e5af5ae6491ad645de88ca03e8f636bbf78557b=TowerDefense Rally RACE! Jungle [V2]
       

      @Agrathore @A3H-Hitman @PTapioK @eliteGi @bk57 @Humble  plz let other map makers know too, can't think of them all atm, ty.

      Hi,
      I was being nostalgic and decided to reimplement cursor graphics from the PS1 version. Note that some of the changed stuff is not a 1:1 rip from PS1 but a recreation, due to PS1 version lacking some of the sprites. Scroll icons were moved a bit for the smoother transition to the "stop sign" versions. They don't touch screen edge anymore, but still look fine.

      I got the complete whatchawhatever from Origin and I'm trying to relive the wonderful days of my introduction to RTS, but it seems as if none of the games are functioning.
      For Tiberian Sun, clicking anything in the menu freezes the whole program.

      For C&C RA2/YR, the mouse is invisible.
      And so on.

      Is it really necessary to download third party patches for games that Origin (Electronic Assholes) are charging money for?

      You have my thanks and best wishes,
      Me
