i seem to have this problem where after i play a skirmish or online match for more than ~10 minutes, the game crashes. i have no idea whats causing this, because at one point, the game worked perfectly (as of... august-ish 2010). i honestly have no idea whats causing this... any hints or tips?

I had the same thing. I just woke up one day, played it and it was gone, never encountered it again, I honestly don't know what's causing that or how it can be stopped.

Do you get any errors or do you just get kicked out? :confused:

skirmish: sometimes i get a generic vista error 'program has stopped working', other times, i end up with a box wit hthe c&c3 logo, and nothing in the center.
online: the game just stops. it doesnt boot me, it just stops. then i have to ctrl-alt-del it...

hmm....right, i think i found a way to get rid of the crashing problem.... it involves iso's and cracks...

now the only thing i need to worry about is the 'pink' error that happens when you defeat a team...

... nevermind... it didnt work....

Ok, thanks to let me know, i had never a answer to that.

It does have something to do with the graphics settings, that's where I'm sure of that.
IF you play Vista... try to play it in Administrator modes. (but i guess you already tried that)

i run everything in admin mode...
i have tried with minimum settings....
the thing that really confuses me: the campaign works perfectly! its just skirmishes and online... and its only been doing this as of recently... *thinks* maybe it was a vista update?

I hate vista with a passion... Have you reinstalled the game?

That's normally the latest option. If truly noting works...

about updating.. is your graphic card up-to-date? it can be a solution.

had not thought of that... but yeah if you are running old graphics drives then they could be having problems generating carnius's works of art ;)

hmm... well... i haven't updated my drivers since January... so... maybe thats it... ill give it a try...

well.... i updated my driver, restarted, and tried another skirmish... same thing... game crash...

just tried the game on minimum graphics, and i cant change the graphic settings... i get an internal error message that suggests re-installation. ive re=installed the game about 10 times now... so i dont know what this means....

-Right mouse button on the shortcut/.EXE file. (must also work then for the mod)
-properties
-compatibility, that's how to get there.

hmm, right, i guess i sounded like a bit of a newb when i wrote that... allow me to rephrase it: in order to access the mod, i need to be able to access the universal interface (or startup menu). for some ungodly reason, there is no shortcut to this. is there a way that i could create a shortcut to the UI?

Just make a batch file, it will launch it without a shortcut and without the startup menu...
There is a tutorial on how to make it on the group
