Known problems

 

Game is flickering / Desktop bleeding through game window?

Go to the config program and switch your rendering from "ddwrapper" to "default".

 

 

Game is running too fast / scroll speed is too fast?

Go to the config program and switch your rendering from "ddwrapper" to "default".

If it's still too fast then also disable the graphics patch.

 

 

Window mode is not working properly?

Go to the config program and disable "DirectDraw Emulation".

 

 

Can't return to the game after alt+tab or windows key?

If playing in window mode is acceptable for you then switch your rendering from "ddwrapper" to "default" and afterwards enable window mode.

 

If playing in window mode is not acceptable for you then switch your rendering to "DxWnd"

 

 

Black screen bug on windows 7?

The menu bug (Black Screen/Invisible Menu/Freezing) should only occur on windows 8 / 8.1 / 10, if you are running into a similar bug on Windows 7 then the problem is most likely related to broken drivers.

 

Read this for more info: https://forums.cncnet.org/index.php?topic=3438.msg32933#msg32933

 

You can also try to enable rendering DDwrapper + DirectDraw Emulation in the config program.

 

 

Firestorm missions are not working? Videos do not play?

The unofficial The First Decade Patch will -not- work in combination with this patch! Some missions will not be playable anymore if you install TSpatch and the unofficial The First Decade patch into the same game folder.

 

Please make sure you are only using TSpatch on a clean official unmodified installation!

if it works perfectly then you prolly don't need it. You probably got the cncnet version of TS already so you have all the extras that come with the patch (game laucnher/config/cncnet/map editor...)

'kay, just wondering if I'd better link it in addition to the full download when recommending the freeware TS on the EA Answers board ;)

I've finally gotten to install this gem, and everything works nicely on my Win7 x64 laptop except for... the no-CD. Because I have the CD version :P  Otherwise, seamless.

Oh :D It should detect if the install is a cd install and disable the no-cd patch, it did not work for you?

When I installed the patch from FunkyFr3sh the Firestorm cut scenes didn't work even the animation when you chose Firestorm or the Orginal Tiberian Sun did not play but the normal Tiberian Sun works normal. How do I fix this? Temporary I will watch the videos on my Ipad between missions.

Did the videos work before you applied the patch? What windows do you have? What TS installation do you have (First Decade/Ultimate Collection/Old CD's)?

I have Windows 7 and my version is from the First Decade with unofficial patch v1.03 Revision 4.

That should actually not happen since the patch detects the installation type, what kind of installation do you have? Cd/First Decade/Ultimate Collection/..?

I downloaded the TS from here. Then I saw the patch and installed it where TS was installed. I got a message stating that it couldn't find the patch 2.0 or something. I just click on "No" and it went though. I just re-installed the game. Now I am lagging like crazy. Any idea what is going on?

Thanks for making this. I recently bought 'the ultimate collection' and was struggling to get TS working well enough to be playable. This solved everything :)

Does this have a TS-ddraw option? I am planning to reinstall the game this week, on last install TS-ddraw and Ultimate Collection TS worked smooth with no screen tearing, except the ESC menu bug.

 

If not, what kind of graphics patch does it have? Does it fix screen tearing on 60hz monitors?

It comes with a special feature that works without any ddraw wrappers on windows 8 using tricks built inside of windows. But it also comes with ts-ddraw and friends which can still be used for other versions of windows perfectly fine if needed. Not sure about the tearing, no one reported me problems about that yet :)

I'm using Windows 7. There is screen tearing in game and movies(at 800x600) after applying your patch and using default settings. I have managed to fix it by forcing refresh rate with this trick(DirectX Refresh Rate Override):

 

http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Refresh_Rate_%28Hz%29

 

Apparently my game was running at 75hz vertical refresh rate(I've had same problem with other DirectDraw games, like Diablo 2 or Baldur's Gate, my monitor doesn't handle 75hz well). After forcing it to 60hz globally, I notice no tearing. Except in movies, there is a slight tearing in some parts, but much less pronounced than before. Also when game camera is moving in a scripted event(such as first GDI mission start), I can notice frame stuttering which stops after event is over.

 

These problems are eliminated using TS-ddraw(which is also running game at 60hz without registry fix). I am going to use it in single-player for silky smooth visuals. Default settings(without TS-ddraw) have one advantage - game input is more responsive, especially scrolling, that's why I would recommend using it in multi-player.
