  1. I actually got it. I applied the patch and some compatibility settings to all YR executibles and it works just fine now. seems the problems are from that patch for the full collection on Windows 10.
  2. Ok, after a full uninstall and reinstall of The First Decade I tried something different and didnt apply TFD Unofficial patch. doing so I applied quick fixes to Red Alert to play the Soviet movies using a RA Launcher, got Tiberian Sun and Firestorm to work using an installer and patcher, got Renegade to work by installing a patch, and installed a patch to Red Alert 2 to fix a black screen issue. The unofficial patch may have done more harm than good in my case. The ONLY game that wont work is Yuri's Revenge now. I click on it to load and it looks like it will start but after a few seconds it just goes back to the desktop with no error message. I tried compatibility settings but nothing seems to work. any ideas?
  3. Back again. After a bad bit of advice from a Microsoft technician on fixing an issue with my desktop I had to reinstall every single game I had. I followed all directions on here to patch The First Decade and got most of the games running fine. The games still giving me trouble are Firestorm, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge. Firestorm loads and goes to the menu and I am able to start a campaign but it just goes straight to the load screen and says "unable to read scenario!". for RA2 I applied multiple patches and got rid of the black screen issue but as it gets to the main menu it freezes. no options load, cant move the mouse but the music still plays. for YR when i try to start the game I get an error saying the application cant start correctly with the code 0xc0000142. for Firestorm's issue I looked everywhere but no one seems to know how to fix it.
  4. I decided to download the movie files for Tiberian Sun and Firestorm from this link: https://forums.cncnet.org/index.php?topic=1898.0 I tried the game after putting both files into my Tiberian Sun folder and Tiberian Sun was able to play its cutsenes fine. but when I tried Firestorm I got an error saying Unable to read scenario!
  5. I managed to get Generals and Zero Hour to run but Tiberian Sun still wont play cutscenes same with Firestorm. I had been using that patch for them already.
  6. Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, and Red Alert 2 have been patched already and work perfectly. and I have run the compatibility settings for Generals and Zero hour but nothing works. I'll try the .ini files in each but idk if that will work. my desktop should support the resolution. It can even put out in 4k. I'll try the Tiberian Sun patch see if that works.
  7. ok, I know this thread I made is old but after the issues I have been having with this game I decided to do a complete reinstall and patching of the game. after following some old directions on this thread Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, Renegade, Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge work perfectly. Tiberian Sun and Firestorm after the patch for those games do work but the cutscenes in both games wont play. and Generals and Zero Hour no longer ask for a CD but show an error message saying "You have encountered a serious error. Serious errors can be caused by many things including viruses, overheated hardware and hardware that does not meet the minimum specifications for the game. Please visit the forums at www.generals.ea.com for suggested course of action or consult your manual for Technical Support contact information." so after redoing everything from the ground up where do I go from here to fix these issues? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Slowdown on Yuri's Revenge

    The First Decade patch actually makes things worse for most of the other games now. like Tiberian Dawn having a very small screen for the cutscenes and sometimes not responding to commands.
  15. I just installed The First Decade onto my new gaming desktop with Windows 10 and while half the games work fine with no patching the Generals games wont start at all. I just get an error saying the game cant run possibly due to a virus, overheating or the hardware not up to snuff to handle the games. but my desktop is the highest end model out there or at least one of them and I just got it. running compatibility has the games ask for a CD be put in the drive so I added the NO CD patch but I get the error messages again. not sure what to do to fix this at this point.
