What works

  • Installation
  • Videos
  • Skirmish
  • Single player campaings

What does not

The game crashes periodically if you have a multi-core CPU

Copy protection prevents the game from launching

Workarounds

To prevent crashing you must:

  1. Disable CSMT in WINE
  2. Then either:
    1. Find a no-cd and use taskset to set the process to a single core e.g. taskset 0 wine Game.exe
    2. Install the community patch ( https://forums.cncnet.org/topi... ) then in tsconfig.exe
      1. Select "Default" under Video/Rendering
      2. Check "No CD" and "Single Processor Affinity" under Game/Game Options

What was not tested

  • Multiplayer

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Set the screen resolution in SUN.INI. If you have a screen with a resolution larger than 3000x1400 you will need to choose a resolution lower than that or use the community patch and tick "Graphics patch" in the configuration

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
­Improving performance
  • 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
