This mod was included with the 'December 2003 issue of PC Gamer UK', with the 'January 2004 PC Zone' and 'Feburary 2004, Issue 158 DVD of PC Format' magazine's... ;) and probably some more I dont know about.


  • This mod does not require the Firestorm expansion, however it is highly recommended!
  • This mod fixes many bugs and re-enables many things from standard TS/FS and is bug free* and is a good reliable base to create new mods.
  • The screenshot section now allows Mod DB community to add content
  • This mod is no longer being developed

    and has not been since its release in January 2004

*If you find any bugs please report them on the official TS Retro forum at PPM Site.

This patch was created by Apple here at Moddb

Here is his description

  • I changed the tags capturable=yes on missions GDI7a, nod missions 4b, 5a, 11,a and 12b, and then I changed FS missions gdi04 and nod06.

  • Becuase on 7a, you have to recapture hammerfist base or whatever right? Well the first objective cannot be finished unless the GDI Radar can be captureable.

  • On nod06 FS, you have to capture the radar at the one GDI base to complete the mission

  • On gdi04 FS, there's a few nod radars that reveal areas of the map, I re-enabled the tag on that one so that could be done, and I'm pretty sure chameleon spies aren't even buildable on that tech level.

  • I think nod12b is that mission you have to capture the GDI ion cannon codes, since the radar is replacing the upgrade center that mission cannot be finished either.

  • Nod11a is the mission you have to capture jake mcneil, the first objective is to steal the small base. That objective cannot be finished if you can't capture the radar.

  • And for some reason, in TSR's rules.ini, UFO has capturable=no. This makes nod5a mission un-complete-able. So I put the captureable=yes tag in that map too for UFO.

TSR was never designed with campaign in mind and as such although it will now run fine there maybe some minor quirks and imbalances in game play.
I have not fully tested this so if there are any problems please notify the author 'Apple'.

I also enjoy this mod. I am just waiting for an AI overhaul! I was never great at learning how to mod AI.Ini files but once i made the AI just the way i wanted it. 23 Riflemen, 12 disk throwers attaking in one wave. 8 wolverines and 6 Titans would attack in another. But evntually it crashed because i did not have the right knowledge for eiditing AI paths and AI attack teams and all that. But was so much intense and way more fun. The default AI only attacks with 7-8 infantry in one attack wave. (Bordom) If anyone remembers how frantic skirmish was on Red Alert back in 90s It was great. Frantic intense gameplay.

Would be nice if someone can Enhance the AI.

That's unfortunate that this mod is not present even on the Firestorm version.

I'm thinking this is proly the best mod for "vanilla" TS feel, and with the singleplayer fix, you can even play the campaigns, watching the movies and everythang.... although there is still that Orca Transport bug. HOWEVER! Project Perfect Mod website did post something in regards to fixing that bug, although the fix must not be good enough, because the fix has not been instated very widely yet.

Still looking for a fix for the orca transport glitch for FS mission 5 and onwards. The transport won't even spawn to begin the mission for me. Can anyone plz lend a hand? I've been waiting 3 months to finish this game with the TSR mod :(

Hey again guys.
Was there ever a fix for the TSR FS campaign for the dropship bug? I've battled in order through every mission in the t/s and f/s campaigns to get to this point. but now on the f/s GDI missions from #5 (Dogma Day Afternoon) all the way through to the final mission, the dropship bugs out and refuses to spawn. So the cinematic ends, mission initiates, and dropship bugs out. Lets me scroll across the map, timer ticks on, but no dropship.

Can't be a mission scripting issue since it wasn't really touched in this expansion, but I know the dropship loadout script was all modified to accommodate the dropship menu in the first missions of t/s.

Anyone know how to get around this?

*seems it is an issue with the orcatran or orcatran2, not the dropship, my bad. Playing around with the Rules.ini file now to see if i can fix it, I'll let you guys know*

You need to run sun.exe AND game.exe in compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME plus "Run as Administrator"
I made the mistake of only having game.exe in compatibility, and that's what was killing it. I am now on GDI mission 8, and I have not had a single crash.
