Some info about technical limitations of Desura.
Posted by feillyne on Jan 11th, 2012
Three TS mods were published on Desura.
Due to several technical limitations of Desura, installing stand-alone TS mods can be a bit complicated, namely:
- Desura requires TS to install TI, DTA and ROTD (even though they themselves are stand-alone), since Desura can't install stand-alone mods without checking if you have the original game first
- Desura can't search folders on the main disk, just folders in Program Files directory and via Windows reg keys, so anybody who has the game installed to Westwood\Sun can experience problems with finding the game through Desura (if Desura fails to find it via the reg key)
Desura installs TI, ROTD and DTA to the following directory:
Reg keys used to detect if TS is installed:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Westwood\Tiberian Sun\InstallPath (should be able to detect the game installed in \Westwood\Sun directory)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\EA Games\Command and Conquer The First Decade\ts_folder
There's a strange font problem with The Dawn of the Tiberium Age mod, so it'll be released later (if debugged).
Please e-mail problems and issues with installing mods through Desura at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org NOT to developers of mods (Desura releases are same as the main ones, but there still can be problems with the app itself) or alternatively visit desura.com/support page
