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

      I just performed a clean install of TS directly from CnCNet. The game starts up, the movies play flawlessly, the menus are totally functional. But upon starting a game, it crashes to the desktop at the load screen before any of the loading texts appear in the "screen." I get the dreaded "TS has encountered an internal error and cannot continue normally" error box, and that's it. I've attached the exception file. I'm running Win10 x64, I installed to the default directory, and my drivers should be up to date. I tried running it at 800x600, 1024x768, and native 1920x1080 resolutions. The TS Patch is installed; the error happened before and after it was installed, no change whatsoever.
      Thanks for the help. It's been years and I'd like to play what I haven't been able to play in a long time.

      I installed the full download of Tiberian Sun and it works perfectly until the end of the second mission of the Nod campaign. After that the screen goes back and it gives the "Tiberian Sun Executable error" message and crashes. I've tried it a couple of times all with the same result. Is there any fix or anything I could try?

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.
