Should work for Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge.
For all those who don't know TS-DDraw, this is what it can do:
Working windowed mode without having to change windows to 16bit
Makes the game running smooth on Windows XP / 7 / 8 / 10 and wine (Need testers for Vista!)
Can fix black screens, invisible menus and other issues
I need help in regards of slow savegame loading and lately some random crashes. I searched alot the internet for a solution, but couldn't find one. I emphasize, that it effects only Firestorm, at least i didn't faced with the followings, while playing through TS. The game version, what i play, is downloaded from CNCNet, but the current game directory containes the file, which i listed in the attached txt file.
Actually, even FS was working fine, until i reached the 7. GDI mission (The Cyborgs Are Coming). I used to save my game periodically and after some time, when saved and then attempted to reload the state, it took extremely long, which means about 1,5 hours! Once i was able to continue playing, after another bit of time spent, the reloading would took God knows how long, since after 3,5 hours i killed the Game.exe process. It looks like the game freezes, but in fact it doesn't, if one is patient enough, it'll be loaded sometime...
In addition, until now only in this mission, i encountered with crashes unexpectedly twice, when a popup appeared and informed me, that the game cannot continue properly this way, etc., stc.. I also attached the crashlog. Even though, until this point, i played the game on a Virtualbox XP Pro SP3 machine - with 1,25 GB of RAM and the maximal 128 MB VRAM - and after several trials, tested the game on a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit VM too (with 1,25 GB RAM and 256 MB VRAM). At last, now i'm running it on an old physical machine (CPU: P4 3.4 GHZ, 3 GB RAM, Geforce 7950 GT VGA) and after hours, i'm still waiting for the game to be loaded. I already tried every imaginable variations of config values (in sun.ini, ddraw.ini, aqrit.cfg), then even updated ddraw to the latest version (220.127.116.11). It's also pretty weird, that even on the real PC, ddraw wouldn't use openGL rendering, only GDI, even though, the configuration is auto (attached a screenshot). One more thing worth to note, game starts to lag and slow down a bit sometimes, while i'm about after 65% of this mission. I thought, it's because of GDI rendering and the number of map objects and units, but earlier, there was already missions, with similar sized maps and number of units and everything worked fine then.
All in all, i can't finish this mission and proceed to the next one, so i really need help. Thanks in advance.
Below you can find a tutorial about adding support for any mod to CnCNet. No matter if you created the mod or if it's a random mod you found somewhere on the internet. Make sure you check the README.txt.
Works for Tiberian Sun, Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn.
I am trying to play Tiberium Sun on my mac book pro (I know not ideal for gaming but im using what I have).
As soon as I start up the game from the menu I am met with a blank black screen, However, I can hear the game, select buttons, go through the menus but I can't see it.
Ive tried to just install the skirmish/multiplayer version and ive started a game and all sounds normal, selecting units, music etc but I can't see it! Im running Mojave 10.14.1
