Additional Comments

Installed version 1.0 from CD(s) without issues on clean wine prefix with winearch=win32, then some issues came up:

* The game crashed at launch. This was resolved by updating the game with the official patch 2.03 (https://cnc-comm.com/tiberian-sun/downloads/patches/2.03).

* The popup-menus on the game start-page got stuck and didn't work. Also, after starting a game, the game would crash. This was resolved by changing DirectDrawRenderer to gdi in regedit:

    wine regedit

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine -> Direct3D

    In this key, create a String value called "DirectDrawRenderer" with value "gdi" (https://wiki.winehq.org/Useful_Registry_Keys)

Now the game will start, run and work as expected.

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
