Finishing the Campaign

I used the cnc-comm.com beta installer in order to play online.
Install dotnet 20 libraries
If you use a 16:9 monitor emulate a virtual desktop that is the size of your monitor, otherwise it will try to force CNC's native resolution.
Run 'wine regedit', browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine. If there is no key (the stuff with folder icons) called AppDefaults, then create it
Right-click on that key and create a new key game.exe
Create a new subkey Direct3D. In that key create two string variables:
DirectDrawRenderer with value opengl RenderTargetLockMode with value readtex
General instructions, with or without opengl
Press cancel when the installer wants to update system files
To avoid copy protection issues (in my experience it did not work even on Windows 98SE, just 95), upgrade to the latest version
If you are not using the opengl mode as described above, after saving a game, the menu becomes invisible, but it appears for a
second or so first, so it is easy to find the resume mission button.
the menu appears again if you ALT+TAB out of the game and back
In order to play network games, IPX will have to be enabled in the
kernel, and you need some userspace utilities, usually called
ipx-utils; and IPX must be started (there should be an initscript).
Also note that Tiberian Sun's network support is only available when it is
run as root
