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

      Hi, 
      Trying to join multiplayer game of Red Alert. Lobby window opens, but I am stuck with connecting.
       * Connecting... (takes up to 1minute)
      No matter how long I wait, nothing happens. And I get no hint why connection is not successful. I have gone though windows firewall settings, and even disabled firewall completely. Still no luck. App can download game files normally, and I can also play skirmish with no issues.
      How to get connected to lobby? Or where to look next?
      Platform: Win 10 running on vmware fusion on top of OSX.

      Hi I am a progamming hobbyist and a Command and Conquer enthusiast.
       
      I was wondering how I might go about joining the team of keeping this game and community vibrant.
      I would be most interested in working on things related to Red Alert and also the Game client
