  1. NOTE: This topic has been recovered from the now closed official C&C Forums and reposted here on CNCNZ.com This patch is a MUST-HAVE for any C&C: The First Decade Owner! You can get it here @nathancnc, with the help of other community members, has created an EPIC Patch 1.03 for The First Decade. This patch fixes many different bugs and adds a number of fixes to the game. Online play has been added to all of the classic titles such as Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert! You also no longer need the disc in the drive to play any of the games! This patch includes EA’s official Patch 1.01 and Patch 1.02. If you already have these installed, the patch will recognize it, and only add the necessary Patch 1.03 changes. This patch is unofficial, we cannot help with any specific Patch 1.03 issues, you are download this at your own risk. However, the patch has been used by hundreds of C&C community members, each reporting no errors with any Patch 1.03 specific changes. Thus, we felt the need to promote this at CommandandConquer.com! Stand-out fixes include updating Red Alert to version 3.03, cleaned up video files to free up nearly a gig of hard drive space, and the integration of extra official Westwood maps from downloadable map packs. Online/LAN has also been fixed for Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2, and Yuri’s Revenge. Manuals for all the games have been added with the patch, as well as registry entry fixes. This is just the beginning of all the additions the patch brings to the table! To check out the full change list and download the patch, check out NathanCNC’s Unofficial Patch 1.03 website! You can also donate to him to help his efforts with the patch. His website contains full details on how to install the patch as well: http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/ This patch is a MUST-HAVE for any C&C: The First Decade Owner! http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/
  2. NOTE: This topic has been recovered from the now closed official C&C Forums and reposted here on CNCNZ.com Note: Vista/7 Users should install the game in Admin mode, to do this run Windows Explorer then browse to your DVD drive, right click on Setup.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility > Tick "Run This Program as an Administrator". Also please install DrectX 9c for Windows Vista (32bit & 64bit)/Windows 7 (32bit) from the following link: http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en For Windows 7 64bit download & install the DirectX SDK from March 2008: http://www.microsoft...ang=en&id=10568 Load up both the 32bit and 64bit DirectX Control Panels and enable Hardware Acceleration: Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft DirectX SDK (March 2008) -> DirectX Utilities -> DirectX Control Panel -> DirectDraw -> Tick "Hardware Acceleration" -> Click OK Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft DirectX SDK (March 2008) -> DirectX Utilities (64-Bit) -> DirectX Control Panel -> DirectDraw -> Tick "Hardware Acceleration" -> Click OK This will mean that all the older versions of DirectX are correctly installed and should avoid problems (mainly with Renegade) of games loading and not showing anything but a black screen. The methods and tools in this text are intended to fix problems and get the games running properly. Note that most of the fixes on this page are files you need to put in your game folder. The default TFD installation folder is: "C:\Program Files\EA Games\Command & Conquer The First Decade\" If it's not there, simply right-click on the TFD launcher link on your desktop, go to Properties and see which directory it launches from. That should be the sub-folder "Launcher" of the main TFD install folder. There should be a "Find Target" button to go right to that location. If you go one directory up from there you end up in the main install folder. In there you will find a folder for each of the games, and a few more for the TFD launcher, patches and internet files. Unofficial 1.03 Patch This patch contains most of the fixes listed in this thread, get it here: http://www.cncnz.com/hosted-projects/command-patch/the-first-decade-unofficial-patch/ or alternatively here: http://cnc-comm.com/...sa=view;down=16 Note: This patch includes files which cause problems with Internet play in TS, RA2 & YR, please check those sections after installing for the solutions to these problems. Nyerguds' guide to installing & patching TFD: http://nyerguds.arsa...alling_tfd.html (note that this is mostly just the manual way of applying all fixes that are in patch 1.03) General fixes: Games won't run in Vista/7: Vista/7 users should take ownership of the TFD main folder. To do this, right click on the "Command & Conquer The First Decade" folder, go to Properties -> Security -> Advanced -> Owner -> Edit -> Select your username -> Tick "Replace Owner" box -> Apply. Vista/7 users should also disable User Account Control: Start -> Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Turn User Account Control On Or Off -> Untick "Use User Account Control" -> OK -> Restart Business & Ultimate users: Start -> Control Panel -> Classic View -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy -> Local Polices -> Security Options -> User Account Control: Behaviour of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode -> Change to: Elevate without prompting User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode. Change to: Disable -> Restart Games won't install: Check that your DVD-ROM supports dual-layered disc's - to do this, go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager (Vista/7) Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager (XP) copy the model name of the DVD-ROM into Google (or any other search engine) and look for a site that lists its specifications. "Autorun.exe is not a valid Win32 Application" errors can be fixed by removing InCd - it seems to cause conflicts with the security part of the DVD-ROM. Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) errors can be solved by booting into safe mode and installing the game from there (log on as the administrator account). You could also copy the entire disc contents to a folder on your HD and see if it'll install from there. If you have 2 DVD-ROMs on the same Data cable that can be the problem, Put one of the DVD-ROMs onto the same data cable as you Hard Drive. This only applies to IDE (PATA) devices where there is only one hard drive and two DVD-ROMS. If you get An Error {-5004 : 0x80070002} has occurred or similar error then reinstall the InstallShield software: Hold the windows key on your keyboard and press the r button > The Run dialogue should appear > Type C:\Program Files\Common Files into the text box and click OK Right-click the InstallShield folder, and select Rename > Change the name to InstallShieldOld > Start the game installation again to reinstall the InstallShield components with the newest version. If the install succeeds after this then delete the InstallShieldOld folder. "Incorrect CD-ROM" errors - if you have emulation software like Demon Tools or Alcohol 120% then make sure you don't have more than 1 virtual drive. You could also try removing the software too in "Add/Remove Programs" (XP) or "Programs & Features" (Vista/7) in control panel. Note: The TFD Launcher program can be the cause of these errors (especially on Vista/7) so try making shortcuts to the games instead. The xcc shortcut installer will do this for you: http://xhp.xwis.net/...t_Installer.exe Games crash on dual core machines: If you have a dual core CPU, and games seem to crash for no reason, start the game and press CTRL ALT DEL (For XP Pro select Task Manager!), right click on the game's .exe process, click "set affinity", and deselect one CPU. ForceCore is a small program that automates this process: http://nyerguds.arsa...f/forcecore.zip Video's hang: On some systems Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert, Tiberian Sun and Red Alert 2 can hang with repeating sound in the first second of video, this often means it is impossible to get past the Westwood Studios logo. To fix this run Dxdiag and disable Sound acceleration Start > Run > type dxdiag > OK > Sound > Hardware Sound Acceleration Level - Move slider until on 'No Acceleration' Picture Guide: http://www.cncworld....utorials/tdhang Specific game fixes: Command & Conquer 1 (TD/C&C1/C&C95): C&C95 1.06 patch: A number of patches were made to fix errors in C&C95. This patch is a combination of all of these plus some extra fixes by Nyerguds: http://nyerguds.arsa...95upd/cc95p106/ Online play: Use CnCNet to play online, it fully supports Nyerguds 1.06 patch & allows up to 6 players: http://cncnet.org/ Fast scrolling bug fix in C&C95: Go to your C&C1 directory, run ccsetup.exe and enable Back Buffer in Video Memory. If that doesn't work or makes the game stutter, try CPU Grabber instead: http://nyerguds.arsa...es.html#cpugrab Display problems (e.g.: "Unable to set the video mode"): Go to your C&C directory, run ccsetup.exe and set the screen resolution to 640x480 (or, with the 1.06 patch, 1024x768 ) Also try changing the refresh rate on your monitor to 60 Hertz: Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > Monitor (XP) Control Panel > Personalization > Display Settings > Advanced Settings > Monitor (Vista) If you have scrambled colours running the game on Windows 7 then try the following fix: Download ddraw.dll from this location: http://hifi.iki.fi/cnc-ddraw/#download and place it in your 'Command & Conquer' folder (same folder as C&C95.exe). Other Solutions to the scrambled colours in Windows 7: You need to be using Nyerguds's 1.06c for this, if you're not, you'll need to update the ID field on your own. Open Notepad and paste whichever one of these corresponds to the version of Windows 7 you're running: 32-bit: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\Command & Conquer Gold 1.06b r2] "Flags"=hex:00,08,00,00 "Name"="C&C95.exe" "ID"=hex:d5,83,dd,32 64-bit: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\Command & Conquer Gold 1.06b r2] "Flags"=hex:00,08,00,00 "Name"="C&C95.exe" "ID"=hex:d5,83,dd,32 File -> Save, choose All Files from the save as type pulldown menu, and save it with the extension .reg. Double click on it, confirm that you want to add the key, and give C&C a try. The Westwood intro video may still have the wrong colors (this seems random, sometimes it's fine, usually it's not), but the game and the rest of the videos will be fine. If you have your wallpaper set to slideshow, you'll still get messed up colors when your wallpaper changes. This will last until the end of any video that was playing, but will only cause a brief flicker in the actual game. If you need to update the ID for whatever reason (new version of the C&C95 patch, fix for Red Alert or another game), run the game and then check this registry key: 32-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw\MostRecentApplication 64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectDraw\MostRecentApplication The ID in that key is four bytes. Reverse their order, and place them between commas like in the keys above. 32dd83d5 becomes d5,83,dd,32. Use that in place of the ID in the keys I posted, change the filename to the correct one for whatever game you are trying to run, and give the key a unique name. 1. Kill explorer.exe before running RA1, below is a batch file which does this for you: taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe C:\"Program Files"\"EA Games"\"Command & Conquer The First Decade"\"Command & Conquer™"\"C&C95.exe" start explorer.exe If you're on 64-bit: taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe C:\"Program Files (x86)"\"EA Games"\"Command & Conquer The First Decade"\"Command & Conquer™"\"C&C95.exe" start explorer.exe You may need to replace the install directory if it is not the default. To use the batch file, make a notepad document, paste in the text, and save it as a .bat file. 2. Right click on your desktop and click on "Screen Resolution" and leave it open (do not minimise). Run the TFD launcher and start the game, or click on the shortcut for RA1. 3. Browse to your C&C1 directory, right click on C&C95.exe > Properties > Compatibility > Tick Run in 256 Colors, 640x480 Res, and use Win98/Me compat mode > OK.

Tiberian Sun (TS) To fix the problem when TS crashes when a disruptor fires, download Hyper's patch here: http://www.ppmsite.c...pic.php?t=31604 Incorrect Version Error - This occurs when trying to play TS:FS online after TFD patch 1.03 (Revision 4) has been installed. It is caused by the Firestorm Videos Addon, which is seen as a mod.

Seems the game needs a UDP port here. All TCP ports gave errors if tried. If you have a Netgear router check the box for "Send Delay". If you don't have a Netgear router, try it off first then on if you still can't host. Click "Refresh NAT" a couple times. It will look as if nothing happened. Don't worry.

  3. Recently downloaded the 1.3 patch for The First Decade after the reader in my DVD driver went to hell so I could continue playing C&C. The patch worked for all games except for Zero Hour (which unfortunately is the game that amused me the most). After installing the patch, the blue batch file appears with all games coming up "Patched", all worked without the disc except for Zero Hour, which still asks me to insert the DVD. I am using the link found here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/est1svg5xex0z8h/tfd-103-rev4.exe And the download application named: tfd-103-rev4 in my downloads folder. Generals is fun and all, but it's getting a little old without all the different variations. Any help is appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
