Does you also have that lag with DDraw 1?

If no, than mostly it's the lack of optimization of the second DLL.

PS: Please remember if you use Win98 compatibility the whole game will be running ONLY ON CORE 1 = very slow.

If you set to XP or either remove the compatibilty mode complete (I have Win8 and am playing without compatiblity mode) you will get a major performance boost

My CPU with Win98 compatibilty
-> only 25-30% (Core 1 100%)

With Win XP or no mode
I have about 60% in use! (All cores about 25-40%)

But there is a disadvantage with XP compatibilty or playing without compatibilty!

You may see the game crashing when trying to launch several times a map. But this issiue is going to be fixed with newer builds ASAP!

What resolution are you playing, DDraw 2 is slower than DDraw 1.

Hm I may know what could cause this lag, I add it to my list for fixing.

Thanks for report!

Where? While opening the zip file?

This actual download has corrupt movies01.mix and movies02.mix everything else looks like is working.

For people who can't wait for the reuploaded file:

If you have the original Tiberian Sun movie files just put them instead the corrupt ones into the mod folder - that should do the trick.

Not really, because HPatch requires them or the game will give an IE. That's why many people had crashes with 1.9.31

Full changelog: Moddb.com

1.9.4 is about 1,24GB zipped and 1,78 unzipped.
Upload and authorization may take a while.

I tried my best, but that is all I could do without delaying the release too much.

Version 1.9.4 in it's current state has over 200 changes to balance, bugfixes, improvments and new features...and it's still in early beta.

Patience is the answer for you all, at the moment. Final release could reach over 300 changes maybe.

We also increased our developer team to 4 members :)

Could be possible, but ATM I prioritize on other things for 1.9.4

Mostly it would be useful with our maps that will be provided with the mod.

Some of them are water based...but for original TS maps the effort wouldn't be really worth :/

ATM I am doing experiments with the AI. If this is going right people may see an AI which repairs bridges, captures neutral tech buildings and promote it's infantry via Armories etc.

Astor Oct 12 2013, 7:30pm says:

I can provide two solutions for skirmish:

1. Mobile Naval Yard method
like in the image, but of course with fitting graphics
AI won't be maybe able to use it properly (needs testing)

2. Neutral Naval Yards (will be only present in our feature map packs)
function as tech building
AI may be able to capture them and build ships

3. Campaign only units
Let us focus on other stuff and keep ships for campaign only
