What works

  • Singleplayer missions
  • Skirmish
  • Fullscreen
  • Windowed
  • Audio

What does not

There is a lot of trouble with getting the right Full Screen settings. 


First off:

  • .NET 2.0, .NET 4.0, and XNA 4.0 are required. Use winetricks for this
  • Original Tiberian Sun is not required, but it does provide a nice workaround

There are two ways to approach this installation:

  • Use a prefix provided by CNCnet.
  • Make custom prefix and install all required components.

The first option is far easier:

  • Use the cncnet .deb or .rpm package (, and use it to install Tiberian Sun. 
  • After you've installed Tiberian Sun, go to that prefix (~/.local/share/cncnet) and install all .NET components in there. 
  • Then, install Twisted Insurrection in this prefix. 

Second option implies making your own prefix. The following is confirmed to work:

  • make a  32bit Windows XP prefix
  • Ensure that cnc95.exe, game.exe, sun.exe, and ts-spawn.exe follow these settings
  • set mscoree dll override to native
  • Install the .NET components
  • Install Twisted Insurrection

Configuration game client after installation

  • on your first run you'll likely have to download a few patches
  • go to the settings menu and ensure that you use TS-DDRAW and that you turn Black Buffering on
  • For fullscreen, ensure that you use a resolution with the same aspect ratios as your monitor. Resolutions larger then 1080p cause issues with UI components.

What was not tested

Additional Comments

It can be made to work. But it's no joy to get working.
