Unable to read scenario

Question

Hi there

just downloaded and installed Tiberian Sun Online from here.

Whenever i want to start a game (TSMPLauncher.exe) (for instance i select Skirmish and then just Launch Game (with the default Map & AI Opponent)) i get "Unable to read scenario" Message and after clicking the ok button the game just hangs on a black screen.

The same happens when i download Red Alert Online from here.

Happened a few month back on Windows 10 v1809. Now happens on a clean, fully patched Windows 10 v1903. Hardware is an HP Elitebook 840 G5 with an Intel i7-8650U, 32GB RAM & NVMe SSD. No compatibility mode on any exe. Default Graphics settings: Automatic (DDrawCompat & ddwrapper doesn't work).

pleas help! thanks

 

Note: Separate Single Player installation of Tiberian Sun 2.03 works (classic & firestorm) so the hardware & os clearly can run tiberian sun.

Is it possible that your antivirus software is blocking cncnet5.exe from writing into the installed directory?

Can you try to install cncnet into your Documents folder and run it from there?

Thanks for your suggestion. Just tried it, but sadly it doesn't work (Still get the same error...)

Also tried :

disabling Windows Defender

- disabling Windows Firewall

- running TSMPLauncher.exe, cncnet5.exe & ts-spawn.exe as administrator via compatibility tab...

really at a loss as to why this error persists. Do i need to do something else than running the tso installer?

Yes i tried various maps, i even looked at the maps folder and chose maps with names similar to filenames to make reasonably sure they existed...

Where did you install the game? Is there any weird char in the path?

Try to start the game again via skirmish or multiplayer and then check if there is a file named "spawnmap.ini" in the game folder

      We removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina).
      Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina.
       
       
       
      If you're running a older version of macOS:
       
      You can still download our old version, but it isn't supported by us anymore and we can't really help you with it if there are issues...

      Note: On macOS mojave you'll need to manually give “Accessibility” permissions to CnCNet to be able to play or else you'll end up with a black screen.
       
       
       
       
      If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15:

      Hello guys, im  a Tiberian Sun player for the ones who don´t know me and i recently tried to install OBS program to have some fun and stream what ever i want in Twitch or Youtube, but can´t put it to work.
      So , i created a "scene" and added all sort of "sources", game , display and window capture, the last one is the only one that shows anything, if i use the window capture i can only stream the Cncnet lobby and if i launch a game nothing happens and the OBS keeps streamming the game channel , all other options dont work.
      I tried to stream throught Twitch and worked but i installed OBS since everyone was using and gave good input about it.
      All help is appreciated, if not thanks anyway!
      My Pc runs Win 10.

      Hi
       I am playing with 6 friends online with "cncnet 5" and we allways have the same units. I saw that the aftermath expension have a lot of new one that we would like to try. Can you explain me very simply how can we do that? I changed Rules.ini to see if its adding something in skirmish and i didnt saw new units. I would love a simple way to have all the possible red alert 1 units for everybody. The only thing i managed to do is to change some map codes on the map editor to have both allies and soviet units for everybody. But i want more!
      Please help me!! ive been seeking for a solutions for days!
      Sam
