Command & Conquer (a.k.a. Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn or simply C&C/C&C1; the game is also often unofficially called Command & Conquer 64 for the Nintendo 64 port) is a 1995 real-time strategy video game produced by Westwood Studios for MS-DOS and released internationally by Virgin Interactive. It was the first of twelve games to date to be released under the title Command & Conquer; six subsequent titles having since continued the story set as sequels with one acting as a prequel, along with the production of several spin-off games. Met with universal acclaim by consumers and critics, Command & Conquer was released for seven separate platforms along with becoming the initiator of the Command & Conquer franchise, and today generally is considered as the title which originally defined and popularized the modern real-time strategy genre.

It would be nice to have a slower scrolling speed as it's currently way too fast. So when I found this patch, I tried it out. Well I do have a slower scroll speed, but thats about it. It completely messes up the graphics when scrolling (doesn't matter which resolution, although the bigger the resolution, the bigger the mess). So I have to revert to the unpatched version.

You know, I'd see this kind of comments much faster if you'd reply to the actual article instead of the general comments on the C&C game.
As for your bug...
1. Read the patch FAQ. I explain these things in there.
2. It's caused by the missions being smaller than your game resolution, so there's not a lot I can do about that. Increasing the game resolution doesn't magically make missions bigger, hmm?
3. It keeps baffling me how people manage to exit the game to complain about this bug, without noticing that the simple act of opening the ingame menu, which is a necessary step to exit the game, FIXES THE ISSUE.

I'll go ahead and add a #4 here. The graphic messup is a purely cosmetic thing, which in no way prevents you from playing on and finishing the mission.

Oh, and maybe I can squeeze in a #5? Sure, why not. Here we go: playing on the original game resolution ALSO completely fixes this issue. And the patch allows completely free resolution control, if you just bother to open the configuration tool.

I don't know wether it's a glitch or not: At the bigining of every skirmish, AI strikes with all starting units. When I look around the whole map, I never find the AIs base, which I doubt exists. Worse, I can't change the starting cash (5000).

Skirmish in the C&C95 v1.06 patch doesn't include bases. More info about that can be found in the patch readme file, and on the moddb page of the patch.

A fun way to play Skirmish is to use Capture the Flag mode, and do surgical strikes against the mobile headquarters of the AI armies :)

It's a pity the "timed hunt" logic used in the multiplayer AI doesn't adapt to the number of units it has though. It'd be much nicer if they didn't all rush at once after a while. The logic was meant to just give a steady stream of enemies.

You know, comments (even snarky ones) related to my news article are better put in the comments OF the article, rather than here in the place which is meant for general comments about the game...

And no, it wasn't detailing, since only one frame of the 32-frame rotation sequence had it :p
