What renderer do you have selected in the config program? Try through all of them and see if another one works better for you. Maybe run the game in a window while testing, this way it's easier to close and you don't have to reboot if it's not working.

Hi Forum newbie here Hi all,  Ive downloaded the origin ultimate collection version of tiberium sun + Firestorm .

When i first tried to run it i experienced a full screen display of the mock EVA setup video, but on hitting esc to get to the game menu the westwood logo vid and game selection menu only appear as circa 1/4 of the full display in the screen centre.  firestorm is beyond selection but on starting tiberium sun its menus also suffer the same problem (only the upper left quadrant being visible)

I modded the compatibility -> win xp sp3, colour detail -> 16bit, and 'run as admin' for each .exe in the game folder.

added a video section to the .ini to specify 800x600 in ra2 syntax???

applied your patch And selected each of the graphic modes in turn with different resolution combos 640 x400 800x600 1024 x 800? (dont quote me on the resolutions..)

to no avail :(

I thought getting Ra2 and Yuri's Revenge going was a pita, 

Can someone please advise as what to try next?

Many thanks in advance..

Run TSLauncher.exe. Click on Settings. Choose your resolution and choose Automatic/Fullscreen for the other options. From the launcher Click "Play Offline".

Hi, really hoping this forum is still active and somebody can help me out.

I bought the C&C Ultimate Collection and the original C&C and Red Alert have worked fine, but I'm struggling to get Tiberian Sun to work.

Initially I had the main menu freezing problem which I've now read a lot about in forums. Searching for a solution I found your patch so I've installed it, it's got me through the menus and I thought I was finally going to get to play the game.... but I can't see the mouse cursor in the game! If I hit Esc to open the options menu the cursor appears, but disappears again as soon as I resume the game. 😩

I've been playing about with the different rendering options available under settings - some of them don't work at all for me (can't even get to main menu etc). GDI setting is the one I used that got me into the game, but with no cursor. I did find some suggestions about turning off cursor trails in the settings for the mouse, but I've had a look and they're not turned on.

As you can probably tell I'm no computer expert, and I'm totally stumped. Any and all help appreciated!

Oh and I'm using Windows 10.

Thanks in advance!

Launch cncnet and go online one time to get updates, then after that set the renderer to Automatic, or ddrawcompat if automatic doesn't work.

Can you try a skirmish game and check if the cursor works there? The game actually hides the cursor in some missions (You just have to wait a moment and you will gain control, the cursor will show up again).

Thanks for getting back! I'll give that a try when I'm home later and report back. I did briefly try loading a skirmish but got a bit lost in the set up screen - I couldn't see a way to actually start the game, but I may have used the wrong resolution at the time and some info had slipped off the side of the screen.

Thanks, I'll give that a go tonight! Probably being dim here but just to check - do you mean open the game (the patched version) and choose play online? Or is there a cncnet.org page I should visit to get the updates? I was having a look on cncnet.org and can see the game available for download, or the patch which I have.

Ok guys, I'm regularly a dumbass on computers but I outdid myself!! As you say Funky the cursor shows up after a minute or so - as we say in Scotland "what an eejit!" Thanks for your patient assistance, and for your hard work patching the game when EA clearly couldn't care less!

Try to change your renderer to either GDI or DDrawCompat and check if one of these are working.

It starts, but now it's only in the upper left hand side of the screen, with either setting.

I fixed it by changing the resolution, but now when I'm in a mission and go to the menu screen and exit the menu screen it leaves a menu sized box that won't go away.

Are you sure that happens with both, GDI and DDrawCompat?

The menu thing happened with GDI, but it has since fixed itself, i just forgot to update that here.

Hi, been playing some TS last few days.  I have the original free version from EA installed and I applied the TS Patch from this thread.

Game runs fine but I appear to be getting sound 'popping' after certain game audio is played.  Doesn't seem to matter if I use my headset or speakers. It's like a slight crackle after I have been play for 5-10 mines.  Happens when I select units and after that audio has play I get like a pop/crackle.

Is this normal?

TS does that on certain audio chipsets. Sometimes audio levels seem to shoot up for a sec and return to normal. This even happens on certain 90's and early 2000's era PC's I've tested the game on. No idea why though.

Tiberian Sun runs like crap on cncnet compared to RA2 and RA1 i get way lower frame rate to performance to the point that id rather play ra2 or ra1 since it runs smoother and faster.
