Been having an itch to play some EA Command and Conquer but it won't let me. I recently had to reinstall Windows so I had to redownload C&C3 and RA3, and now they won't launch. I've set the executables to XP SP3 compatibility and to run as admin, but still nothing. Tried bibber's fixed launchers but still not working. I used the switch bibber's launchers include to launch a game directly instead of with the launcher. Still doesn't do ****. It tries to start since I'll see RA3Launcher.exe and RA3EP1.exe under Processes. However, I don't get anything and I'm not sure what else I need to check. The game (and TW as well) worked fine on this machine with Origin and TUC. I have no idea what changed unless launching with the -win switch causes an issue for the first launch.
A few friends of mine and I have started a new roleplaying forum. A couple of other communities were going down and we're bringing everyone together with a fresh, clean place to hang. As such, we're looking for other people who enjoy storytelling and writing, and also those who like to have a bit of fun. We welcome anyone and everyone so if you feel so inclined, pop on over, say hi and stick around. We're a silly bunch of people but we have a good time.
If you feel like coming on by, we'd appreciate it. I think you'll need links, so here you go.
