I managed to get almost all the games to run with the unofficial patch 1.03 avaliable at http://portal.commandandconquer.com/portal/site/cnc/article/detail?contentId=5609db4badbcd110VgnVCM100000100d2c0aRCRD
Owners of the game should use this patch.
The (mostly) working games include:
Red Alert 1 & 2 & Yuri's Revenge
Tiberian Sun (and Firestorm)
What does not
C&C Generals (and ZeroHour) doesn't work, but mearely shows the loading splash.
For some reason, with all the game engines, the sound would not work, only on the videos.
I am not sure if it could be my setup causing the issues.
All the games (except for Renegade) had jumpy game engine
What was not tested
I did not test the campaign modes, only multiplayer or skrimish for all of the games.
Try this game if you have it, and try different configurations as well.
