Question

Hi I'm new to the forum here. Im having issues with the older CnC games just locking up when I alt tab out to look at something else, also the sound keeps playing like the game is running but the screen never recovers. If anyone has a fix for this i'd really like to know!

 

Thanks,

jseng93

Are you using our installers from www.cncnet.org ? Did you change the video settings?

 

Could you tell us which games you are talking about, that would help a lot. And your operation system too

The games i'm having issues with are everything before CnC 3 tiberium wars and i have a 64 bit operating system. I got it from the ultimate collection from origin. Also did not change video settings.

Here are the patches we made for the old games:

CnC1: http://nyerguds.arsaneus-design.com/cnc95upd/cc95p106/

Red Alert 1: http://funkyfr3sh.cncnet.org/

Tiberian Sun: http://cnc-comm.com/community/index.php?topic=3438.0

 

With newer games we cannot really help, since this here is mainly about the very first games

 

You have to know that Alt+Tab will not be working on Tiberian Sun/Red Alert 2 on windows 8 / 8.1 / 10, there is no proper fix for this problem yet
