Hi,

 

i use the original "german" CDs from the 90th.

How can i use my original Aftermath and Counterstrike CDs  (CD3 and CD4) with the Installer?

 

Is there an OFFLINE Installer version aviable (file with all needed files without ISOs)?

 

Greets from Germany

hi, there is no need to install the aftermath/counterstrike since they only got a few mb of useful data. You can still play aftermath/counterstrike, the 3.03 patch which is included contains all the new units etc

 

If you want to do an old-school installation then choose Mini CD-Installation, it will force you to switch between all 4 cds like back in the days

 

Offline installer including all game files without the need to insert the cds would be too complicated since the game came out in 3 different languages and i would need to create 3 huge packages for the videos (english/german/french). But if you got the CDs it is possible to use the installer offline too, CD-Install and patch function will work offline (it will tell you that it couldn't download additional files but it allows you to continue)

 

You can also use the old 2.10 version, it was made for offline cd-installs and contains all the language packs http://www.mediafire.com/?hg5b930751v60ab

It is possible, to get the "german" mission names and the "german" videos from the Aftermath and Counterstrike CDs in the game?

Mission names: It's not so easy to make it working sadly, you would need to create a custom mix file and mess around with the game data :( I didn't translate those cause currently there is no good way to do it, maybe some game patch will change that in the future

 

Videos: Aftermath and Counterstrike dont have any videos, that's why i didn't added an option to install them. The ant missions got a small intro video, but it doesn't have any speech

hi. I have similar question: I have original ISOs of RA, CS and AM, all US releases. I know, that addons have some new music and few videos. how can I install them all to hard drive from ISOs without downloading any of the additional msuic packs? and can I enable movies before/after addon's missons?

If you really don't want to download some files (i have a package with all these missing files) then there is only one way to get those.. you have to use XCC-Mixer and open the main.mix files located on the CDs and extract everything you want to your game folder. The missing files are:

2nd_hand.aud, araziod.aud, await.aud, backstab.aud, bog.aud, chaos2.aud, float_v2.aud, gloom.aud, grndwire.aud, rpt.aud, search.aud, shut_it.aud, traction.aud, twinmix1.aud, under3.aud, vr2.aud, wastelnd.aud, antend.vqa, antintro.vqa, snowbase.vqa

 

If you change your mind, here is the package with all these files + 8 retaliation soundtracks: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1sb1eohtm2ov0qv/reta-exp-music.zip

 

The addon missions (PC version) don't have videos

The playstation1 version (retaliation) had some videos, Nyerguds ported them to PC and you can download them here if you want (The lost files): http://www.mediafire.com/?de2h42t27olqec4

yes lol, they put the videos from the original cds on there too .. i think some of them are used during the expansion missions, some not

 

they probably just wanted to fill the cds, making a 60mb sized cd doesn't look so nice

Having a weird bug where when I accomplish or fail a mission, the game freezes for a good 30 seconds before loading the cutscene. Also, the cutscene that is supposed to play when you rescue Tanya in Mission 5 of the Allied Campaign dosen't play.

 

I'm on Windows 8, using a quad-core processor (Haswell i5) with a GeForce 660. Everything is up to date.

@ETPC, try to disable "Force single CPU affinity" in the config under Video options

 

What game resolution did you set up in the config ?

Game renderer is still set to GDI ?

Yup, I have all the files. I have the Ultimate Collection from Origin (ick.).

 

I'll try the CPU fix! And no, I'm using OpenGL. Should I be using GDI?

If the CPU fix doesn't help then try with GDI, if it still doesn't work then disable "Enable video stretching"

No problem! Do you want me to keep providing crash logs when I run into issues? I don't wanna end up spamming the board or something.
