Can't Install Tiberian Sun on Pop! OS (Ubuntu / Linux) - Download Failed dotnetfx.exe

Question

Hi,

I installed cncnet_1.0_all.deb successfully however when it tries to run the initial setup/update it gives an error:

Download failed: Success.

In the window behind it seems that it is trying to download dotnetfx.exe and failing with the error "Cannot connect".

Subsequent attempts to launch cncnet give the following error:

0009:err:mscoree:CLRRuntimeInfo_GetRuntimeHost Wine Mono is not installed

However, if I run

rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet

then run cncnet it will open the cncnet window with the same "Download failed: Success." error while trying to download dotnetfx.exe

I am running Pop! OS 20.04 which is based on Ubuntu 20.04. Any help is appreciated.

Not sure why this would happen, but you can try the following:

 

rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet

 

Now modify the "cncnet" bash script and change this:

INSTALLER="$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/CnCNet.exe"
INSTALLERURL="https://downloads.cncnet.org/CnCNet.exe"

To this:

INSTALLER="$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/CnCNet-dotnetfx.exe"
INSTALLERURL="https://downloads.cncnet.org/CnCNet-dotnetfx.exe"

 

Now run cncnet again.

 

You should be able to get to the launcher now, but i'm not sure if the downloads will fail in there as well or not

Having the same issue on Pop-os as well.

Can you please explain the second part of changing the bash script? I downloaded the .deb... where can I find the bash file?

It's in /usr/bin/cncnet after you install the .deb.

edit it with sudo nano /usr/bin/cncnet

Got past the first download issue, but now I've hit another download fail. I opted to install the full game of TSF...

Looks like the picture didn't upload. Anyways the failure is at movies02.exe with a status of cannot connect.

I can launch the game but when selecting the single player I get an unable to load the scenario with an ok box then it kicks back out to the GDI or NOD campaign selection screen.

Any chance there is another download alternative that I can point to?

Thanks!

I guess it might be a good idea to install a different version of wine, looks like a wine bug to me

      Hi.
      I'm playing CNC TS single player campain and loading saved game takes about 65 seconds on my system (Win8.1 64bit; Core i7 5820K; SSD). For such an old game waiting for more than a minute looks to me like something is wrong. What can i do to speed it up?
      Thanks!

      Hi Everyone,
      I've got kind of a weird issue that i saw mentioned online many times, but no fix or solutions for it.
      So, in order of steps, i installed C&C Tiberian Sun (which says includes Firestorm) from The First Decade collection, installed the First Decade Patch v1.03 Revision 4, then installed the TSPatch (from http://downloads.cncnet.org/TSpatch.exe ) and was able to get Tiberian Sun to work via the TSLauncher
      However, i finished the Tiberian Sun campaign and just went to try Firestorm and for some reason am getting the message "Unable to read scenario" when trying to start any campaign, GDI or Nod.

      I'm not sure if I'm missing any files or there's some other issue going on. Any help would be appreciated.

      Currently migrating a mod from an old (10 yrs-ish) version of TibSun. Most stuff are working, except for some sounds (some working, some not). Sounds work on the older game.exe though.

      I have tried the following:
      extracting the aud files from the mix and placing them in root and MIX packing the aud files into a new MIX file So far some sounds play while others don't.

      I just downloaded the Tiberian Sun: Firestorm game from the site and I was so excited to get to play this game again. Then when I went to click on the icon to start playing, I received a notice that the extention 'Game.exe' had been moved or was deleted and I have no way to play this game that I just installed. Can anyone help tell me why? Windows 10 x64 OS.
