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.

Run CCConfig and try to change the renderer to opengl, or gdi.

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.

      We removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina).
      Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina.
       
       
       
      If you're running a older version of macOS you can still try to install the games (C&C / Red Alert / Tiberian Sun) manually:
       
      Step 1: Install wine-stable https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS
      Step 2: Download the following script, right-click and select Open https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet.command.zip
       
       
       
      If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15:

      Does anyone know how to edit the games sound files? I've found info regarding  Red Alert and later games in the series but not the original Command & Conquer.
      Maybe I'm missing something but you don't seem to be able to with XCC Utilities like you can with some other C&C games.
