Additional Comments

There is a MAJOR hiccup whenever you enter a Dialog with the game. For instance when you hit escape the pause menu takes a significant amount of time to load. Also installation was a bit annoying simply because one either has to run the executable file from their file manager, or run wine E:\\setup.exe where the CD drive hasn't been consistent across wine versions. I think it would be nice if there was an autorun feature. Even if all it was was an entry under Applications->wine->Autorun that automatically ran the autorun script from the cd. I'd write something myself but unfortunately I don't know how to find the cd drive's name.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
Replace 'THIPX32.DLL' in the game directory by running CnCNet's launcher one time to get fully working LAN and internet.

To get around most of the bugs listed, check out: http://hifi.iki.fi/cnc-ddraw/

Also remember to add ddraw to dll overrides to get it loading, virtual desktop also recommended.

It is highly recommended you install Nyerguds' v1.06c version that includes bug fixes, new features, cnc-ddraw and CnCNet:

Regardless what version you install, remember to add ddraw to dll overrides as it will improve rendering performance a lot if ddraw.dll is included or installed by hand.

WARNING for bug 4487

The game does not run correctly on SMP PCs (more than one CPU core or HyperThreading enabled); HyperThreading can be disabled in the BIOS setup.

 


SMP workaround­

by David Eccles (gringer) on Wednesday October 24th 2007, 4:58

As mentioned in bug 4487, an alternative workaround to freezes on multi-processor systems is to restrict the wine process to a single CPU, as in:

schedtool -a 0x2 -e wine C&C95.EXE
