Wauw this is wonderful news for the Linux community (including myself), thanks!

I however would advice to update the download page (this is an example of the red alert one, same for Tiberian Sun).

I mean it just looks like I can ONLY play singleplayer, while in fact I can play Command & Conquer Gold, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun including Online / Skirmish / LAN  plus indeed singleplayer campaign. I hope you take my remark seriously.

Oh right, I forgot to remove the "Single player" text when I updated the downloads, thanks for reporting. It would also be nice if it could detect the OS and automatically and show the right download on the orange button (not sure if that's possible). 

We are still not done with the downloads yet and there will be some more changes to make things more clear

I just got done installing the cncnet_1.0_all.deb package on Linux Mint 19 64-bit and it won't run, or even launch. I get this error in the terminal:

0009:err:mscoree:CLRRuntimeInfo_GetRuntimeHost Wine Mono is not installed


Any Ideas?

Install wine-mono.

Well, that was pretty obvious. Problem is I see no package for wine-mono. How do I install it? Isn't this package kind of broken if it doesn't fetch all needed dependencies? I'll keep googling, but haven't really figured it out yet.

The package was built on linux mint 19 64bit and fully tested there. It doesn't require wine mono.

Just tried it again and it worked fine.

 

Is there any specific wine version you're using? You installed the package via DoubleClick->gdebi?

I don't have wine installed on the system at all other than the wine wrapper that comes with the cncnet_1.0_all.deb package. Fresh Install of Linux Mint 19. Yes, installed using Gdebi. I'll keep trying. I really don't get why it works for everyone else but not for me. I spent almost a whole day trying to get it to work lol. When I click the launcher, nothing happens. When I run in terminal, that is the error code that it spits out.

I guess I'll just have to stick to playing it on windows or setting up in wine manually. 

Thanks anyway.

 

EDIT: Dunno if it makes a difference, but was the Version of Mint 19 you tested, the one with the Cinnamon Desktop?

First - Do not run 3rd party programs as sudo. It's ok to run some bundled programs with sudo like dpkg, apt and a few others.

Try to delete .local/share/cncnet like this

rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet

Then run cncnet again.

That did it! Awesome, thanks for the help. I wonder why it didn't work the first 10 times I uninstalled and reinstalled though... Wierd.

Really Appreciate it, can stop pulling my hair out and start playing some CNC now.

Hi, thanks for the great effort on this, I can play TS on macOS without any hassle for a while without messing with wine on my own.

In order contribute I created a Pull Request on Homebrew repository (it's a command-line based unofficial package manager for macOS, widely used) and apparently it just got merged.

So from now on if you have Homebrew installed all you need to do is:

brew cask install cncnet

Awesome! Haven't used this myself, but seems to be quite popular, nice to have :)

That also helped me to get the installer throught.

But now when starting cncnet I ge the following error message:

Is it known which kind of font is missing where?

Looks like the package wasn't installed properly, you're missing one of its dependencies. Try to install it again.

Okay, I noticed the error occurs directly during installation also:

- It downloads .NET framework 2.0

Auswahl_015.png.b5df1800ea06539542acbf0aa7e0b03e.png

- it installs .NET framework 2.0

Auswahl_016.png.780c48309377682c3e379c4d07d2a9ce.png

- The font error occurs:

- followed by another one:

Auswahl_017.png.3a2766d8d7bc36fb644eda838b3235e4.png

 

So I guess this is a problem within wine? But I'm a total newbe, no idea what to watch out for.

I googled to see where I could put additional fonts and found https://askubuntu.com/questions/86335/installing-other-fonts-on-wine but still, I don't know which font is missing. :-S

not sure why this would happen for you...

Try again

rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet

 

then

sudo apt update && apt upgrade

 

and then (just to be sure...)

sudo apt install fonts-wine

My system was/is pretty much up to date (Linux Mint 19.1, updating every other week). Nevertheless I executed all commands in that order.

The last command in fact fixed it. :-)

Seems to work fine now. Awesome work, donated right away.

Thank you very much. :-)

      I've been wanting to play red alert for a while but i don't know which version to download. I am currently using macOS Catalina 
       
      If someone can help me I would appreciate it.

      Hey, so I want to recommend the classic C&Cs to some people I know, and they may be more likely to try it if it's free. However, while the first free C&C games were released as freeware, the primary sources of downloads are down, the only way is through 3rd party mirrors and the C&C Ultimate Collection includes them for a price. So are the first three games still considered freeware?

      Hi,
      I was trying to fix a problem that cause my game frequently freeze after a few second of game starting. I searched many similar problems but there is nothing solve my problem. I tried almost every thing that I can find in the game folder.  My PC is win10+amd ryzen 5+ GTX1080ti. Finally I found the problem is the "VideoBackBuffer" option in redalert.ini. When I set VideoBackBuffer=No my game start to work properly. There should be something wrong when it is Yes by default. 
      This really troubled me many days since this option is not in any game config UI. Hopefully this will help the others that have same problem and this could be fixed soon.
