The v1.4 Beta will be re-released as a new and improved full version soon! Most notably is optimized visual effects, improved framerate, improved AI, and several bug and balance fixes!

Having trouble with C&C Tiberian Dawn Redux? Here is a detailed tutorial and F.A.Q. that walks through some of the issues that you may likely encounter if things go wrong for you when installing and playing the Mod. Also check out our Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.) Section below...


1.) Make sure Zero Hour is Installed and patched to v1.04

2.) Make sure you do not have any other Mods installed that may conflict
with the game or with the TDR Mod. (including older versions of this

3.) Make sure to install the Mod to the proper Zero Hour Game Directory.
(because of C&C The First Decade there are now two different
directory's that you will need to verify whether or not you need the
regular Zero Hour or the TFD Zero Hour directory.

4.) You may have to run the Mod Installer and the Launcher as an Administrator.

(this has not been totally confirmed, however)




Q1.) I am having trouble downloading the Mod!
A1.) Check your internet bandwith and any firewall/blocker programs for issues. You may need to disable some programs that may be blocking file downloads. Some sites seem to not work well with downloading for some users. Multiple download mirrors should be available. Using search engines such as Google work well for locating other download mirrors if one does not work for you.

Q2.) I have downloaded the Mod but the file cannot be read or the installer does not work!
A2.) You may have had a bandwidth issue due to the large file size that corrupted the download or your Operating System is experiencing a compatibility issue with it.

Q3.) Why is the file so huge?
A3.) This is due to the fact that the mod contains the full motion videos and soundtrack from the original C&C.


Q1.) I downloaded the Mod, but now I cannot use it. How do I use the file?
A1.) You need WINZIP or WINRAR to extract the Mod files (if applicable) and run the .exe file. You can find the program for download on various sites.

Q2.) My system prevents me from running the installer or says it cannot find a file when it starts to install.
A2.) Make sure to run as Administrator, and make sure you are installing to the proper installation directory. (see question 3 below for more information) Also you will need to disable User Account Control.

Q3.) I have now opened the installer and I cannot find my root Zero Hour game file directory.
Or I have a pop up box that asks me to replace existing files. What should I do?
A3.) If it asks you to replace files just click on "Yes to all". While looking for your directory click on the dotted box to the right and look for a directory layout similar to the following examples:

EXAMPLE 01: The default directory for regular Zero Hour is C:\Program Files(x86)\EA Games\Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour

EXAMPLE 02: The default directory for The First Decade version of Zero Hour is: C:\Program Files(x86)\EA Games\Command & Conquer The First Decade\Command & Conquer(tm) Generals Zero Hour

Doing further investigation of the Origin system. Look for its special file directory and make sure the mod installer installs to it C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour

Otherwise if no luck, copy your entire ZH game data folder to another location and copy the Mod files to the copied folder. Rename all the .tdr files to .big and create a shortcut for the CCTDRDX.bat file making sure it and the source files are in the same folder as the copied game data folder. It should work. Just be aware it will consume a lot of Hard Drive space. You might also want to download this fix.


Open the Mod starter/launcher shortcut and press "Enter" twice and then it will
display a menu. This is where you can turn the Mod and Worldbuilder on
or off and adjust the new graphic effects. When you see *EVA CONSOLE
PROGRAM OPTIONS* it is working and you are on the right track. Just
follow the on screen instructions from there. Such as playing the
Mod... press "1" and press "Enter" and follow the instructions for
setting your LOD settings. The Mod will then activate!

PLEASE NOTE: The last settings you set will be saved when you click on the "exit" button in the Window. If you do this, the Mod may still be activated and when you go to play Zero Hour, Tiberian Dawn Redux may show up instead! Make sure to press "5" and "Enter" to clear the Mod from the Game Directory and exit the Console. The latest version of the launcher has a built in cleanup utility that makes sure Zero Hour gets restored.

I hope this information will help all of you out and answer many of your questions!

The installer doesn't work. I go through the setup process, and confirm the finalized settings, but then nothing happens. It just shows text talking about the install program's supporters.

Any chance we can get another link for 1.4 version?

gamefront is scum and many countries are banned from using it, so hosting it somewhere else would be much appreciated.

Out of curiosity, is the mod still being worked on?

Thanks in advance.

I have been away from the project due to real life but there is a stable version of 1.4 that I have been beta testing recently. I will have to recompile it for a re-release. I am all that is working on the Mod still as everyone else has moved on to other things, which is understandable.
