First Decade, Firestorm, Unable to read scenario when starting any new campaign

Question

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.

You can't install the First Decade Patch v1.03 Revision 4 patch and TSpatch both at the same time, you have to choose which one of the two you would like to have

Ok. I'll uninstall and reinstall it with one or the other then. Does the v1.03 R4 patch have the TSpatch included with it?

The reason I ask is because it appears the TSpatch is necessary for me to even play the game. For some reason, just the game by itself (or with the 1.03 R4 patch installed), the screen stays frozen on the main menu even after clicking an option like Campaign. You can hear audible clicking and actions on the screen, but it stays frozen from the Main menu and doesn't change.

Nope, TSpatch is not included with it, but you could in theory get the game working without TSpatch too if needed.

 

To fix the menu you'll need this: https://github.com/CnCNet/cnc-ddraw/releases

For the improved skirmish lobby + multiplayer support you'll need this: http://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet5.exe

It doesn't matter to me. Just trying to figure out what the exact process is to get it to work. I was able to get Firestorm working using ddraw and TSPatch for one install attempt, but haven't been able to get both to work again since then. Like it's not reproducible for me.

What's the exact procedure for installing it? Because between setting placing the ddraw files , using TSPatch with ddraw, using ddraw with patch 1.03, Compatibility mode (which i saw you noted can't be set with ddraw files), running as admin, etc.., I haven't been able to get it to work consistently.

Also as a sidenote, my environment is Windows 10 Pro x64 v2004

All you need is a fresh TFD installation and then install TSpatch and it should work fine.

Do not install the unofficial TFD patch, it will rename/move some files around and then it will fail to launch the missions. 

The ddraw file isn't needed if you install TSpatch (it's included)

Lord Jesus, i was finally able to figure out a way that worked, but TSPatch can't be used at all.

So a fresh install of TFD and installing the v1.03 R4 patch finally gets it to work and the missions to load. But i noticed the in-game pause menu wouldn't show on screen.
So i added the cnc-ddraw files to the game directory to see if it would fix it and it did. The only side effect from this is an abnormally fast in-game scroll rate.

I did try installing the TSPatch over all of this, because i thought i remembered it fixing the fast scroll rate, but it just messed up the whole install.

Other than the fast scroll rate, everything is good. I'll post any further updates while playing it.

I'm not even sure why originally installing the v1.03 patch didn't work. I was all over the place trying to figure this out.

      Hi folks!
      I was wondering whether or not it's possible to AI upscale the cutscenes in Tiberian Sun and put them into the game?
      I am absolutely sure that the cutscene files "MOVIES01.MIX" and "MOVIES02.MIX" contains additional data in order for the cutscenes to load correctly and at the right moments, but does anyone of you know how to perhaps modify the files and extract stricly the cutscenes, in order to upscale them and put them back.
      Of course it wouldn't be anywhere near as great as a proper remaster, but more so just to give the cutscenes a facelift.

      Hi, Hope you can help!
      I am still new to playing this game (used to play it years ago but wasn't the same as it is now), and when my friend joined, I didn't realise you could create a private game so I kicked the people who joined so it was just us two. I have been kicked out games before as soon as I joined so didn't realise kicking people was against the rules.
      Shadow777 was my first username and then someone made a comment amount the numbers 777 so I changed my username to visionary. I didn't realise at the time that this was also an offense. 
      Anyway I am now unable to play the game as it says I am banned. Please unban me! This is literally what I look forward to every night after work!

      I installed the Origin C&C Generals version of Yuri's Revenge, then I installed Purple Alert. The Purple Alert launcher loads fine, but when I click "Launch Purple Alert" the C&C Generals "Ra2 or YR" launcher pops up. When I click YR it just loads the Vanilla YR. Is there any way to bypass something so that I can play Purple Alert? I played it years ago when I had the non C&C Generals version and it was the best mod ever!
