Knowledge Based - C&C Titles
CLASSIC C&C GAMES
I have the First Decade set, but I cannot access some of the games...
I can play C&C but cannot access 'The Covert Operations'
I can play Red Alert, but not access 'The Aftermath' nor 'Counterstrike'
C&C and red Alert both play without the disk needing to be inserted, the other games won't.
I basically cannot see a menu to get onto the other games with C&C and Red Alert.
when using The First Decade I recommend getting the 1.03 patch pack for TFD it fixes problems in TFD,
makes all the games NoCD, patches RA to 3.03 and patches C&C1 to 1.06b Revision 1. You should get the (1.06b Revision 2) as well
OK, so I downloaded this game. It required a few patches, installing MagicISO, replace the THIPX16.DLL and some td105 file.
Eventually all is ok & it runs, but come to the point where the NOD mission 4 wont move to 5 when successfully completed.
It gives an error that says "Cannot load scenario" and you are left with a blank black screen that requires Ctl-alt-dlt to remove as it doesnt respond.
Did you actually mount both CDs? The Nod missions aren't on the GDI disk, so it's logical the game can't load them from it.
Also, you should install patch 1.06. It corrects loads more bugs, and adds high resolution to the game.
hello, i just download red alert one from the EA games site.. the free version celebrating the 10 anniversary of red alert.
however when i started to play i noticed that i cant build vicroids, even hand of nod i cant get it among with other extra weapons..
anyone know why
There are no Visceroids in the Red Alert series. And also they are not buildable
I got red alert running on win 7 64 bit but i got the bug that the game stops with repeating sound
I have red the bug fix tutorial which says i should change sound hardware aceeleration to none in dxdiag but in win 7 it's not possible to change it in dxdiag
I also checked google but with no result
Try installing with the Setup Manager Tool?
Whenever I play RA95 via flash drive on a computer different than the one I installed the patch on, the expansions dont seem to load,
I am guessing this is because the Patch now searches for A specific directory for the Expansions instead of the local directory like it used to?
Is there a way around this, until I get an answer, Ill have to unistall the patch until there is a way around.
It looks for 2 specific entries in the Windows Registry, namely the DWords "AftermathInstalled" and "CStrikeInstalled" in the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Westwood\Red Alert Windows 95 Edition".
Those are obviously not there on the computer you play on with a flash drive.
I bought C&C red alert 2 two days ago and the game ran fine until i quit and tryed playing it again. when in campaign or skirmish all of my
units and buildings die/explode, ive tryed re-installing the game and it works fine until i exit the game and try to play it again later,
the same thing keeps happening
Run the game in administrator if using Windoes vista or 7. Also, you should try updating the game with the latest patch.
I recently had an old copy of Tiberian Sun installed on my system, but during my system-wipe/upgrade to windows 7 I noticed that this version was running badly (the old pavement build issue). I found out that Tiberian Sun was available for free as a download and thought that this would be the answer. Once I installed I opened up the game to, selected the "original" flavour and got to the main menu. Once here the sound stopped working. I poked around, found nothing obvious and decided to uninstall and go back to my old version. Upon re-installing this I found that the sound had gone on this version too. So, to recap, the splash screen (version selector) has sound then neither version has. My old copy now doesn't have sound (though it did before).
I found the except file and have the following information (well, it starts with this):
The thread tried to read from or write to a virtual address for which it does not have the appropriate access.
Access address:00000000 was read from.

I recommend uninstalling all versions of TibSun you have installed (having multiple copies installed simultaneously is never a good idea).
Then download and install this
