I'm a hobbyist modder and a programmer with a will of creating great mods and games for myself and especially others to enjoy. I've written the Client for the two most succesful C&C Tiberian Sun mods ever released, The Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection, and I'm also a SP and MP mapper and the AI coder of The Dawn of the Tiberium Age. I've also made the official CnCNet Client for Yuri's Revenge, and I'm working on a (currently) unannounced indie game. If you have any feedback or questions related to my work, don't be afraid to post in the comments.

Tiberian Sun Main Menu

FEATURES

  • Full Tiberian Sun and Firestorm campaigns included, with optionally downloadable movies (about 1.3 GB in size)
  • Skirmish support with pre-defined starting locations and teams
  • Dynamic map preview showing starting locations and teams on the map
  • Full CnCNet multiplayer support, including automatic transfer of custom maps, passworded games and private messages*
  • Support for spectators
  • Allows modding similar to The Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection
  • All TS INI bugs fixed - includes fixes from Aro's Tiberian Sun: UMP
  • Compatibility with the latest operating systems, including Windows 7, 8.1 and 10
  • Saves statistics from all games of your commander career
  • Automatic updates (you can opt out) for delivery of bugfixes and possible additional content like multiplayer maps
  • FinalSun Map Editor included
  • Extra game options including Build Off Ally, Harder AI, Disabled Super Weapons and Disabled Refinery/Silo Storage
  • Includes some of the best and most beautiful multiplayer maps created for TS by the community (selectable in the "Fan-made" gamemode)
  • Supports viewing and joining DTA and TI (and soon YR) games at CnCNet


*Note: This is not the only TS MP client. Most games are (currently) hosted with FunkyFr3sh's client, which is incompatible with this client. So, on CnCNet you won't see most of the games shown in the main menu.

CREDITS

Client / Game executable / Misc.:

  • Rampastring: For creating the client and applying various improvements to the game, including new game options and maps
  • Bittah Commander: For editing the game executable and FinalSun executable so that it reads files from subdirectories instead of MIX files, and for helping with the client's graphics
  • Iran: Created the Tiberian Sun spawner, which makes it possible to skip the in-game menu and as a result makes the client possible
  • CCHyper: Provided various useful hacks for the game executable, the most important one being the WaveClass error fix
  • zzattack: For making the CNCMaps Renderer and saving me a bit of time by hosting high-quality map preview images at ra2maps.zzattack.org
  • OmegaBolt: For extensive testing and providing useful feedback


Mods / Companies / Communities:

Have fun!

PS. I originally released this package a few days ago at Project Perfect Mod ( Ppmforums.com ). Since then I've released multiple bug-fixing updates, so be prepared to download a few dozen extra megabytes after downloading and extracting that ZIP package.

Sounds like it's launching the game properly, but the game itself isn't being displayed correctly for you. What's your OS? Does YR (without the client) work properly?

This time I have a problem to report and I am unsure if I report this to CNCNet or to you, so here goes.

This is for CnCnet YR:

I am currently trying host a map and everytime someone try download it the following happens:

I.imgur.com

I even tried to use 2 machines on same IP to see if it still happens, and even than the downloading fails. Do you have any clue how to resolve this? This happens with every map. I would like to host games too.
--
Other unrelated issue is that lately a lot of times during version checking (starting the client) I receive "Update failed please check firewall and some URL" and I am pretty sure my internet is stable but its totally random and sometimes I need open the client 5 times for it to work. Is it cncnet or something else?

Besides that I am still having a blast playing RA2YR :)

I'd imagine that it's CnCNet server issues. Nothing has been changed in the client.

The CnCNet server was under a DDOS attack at the time you wrote the message. It caused all tunnel servers to go offline, which naturally made it impossible to play.
