Are tired of starting the C&C3 Tiberium Wars Game Center every time to launch a mod?.
With this simple guide you may run your favorite mod of a form quick and easy.

http://media.moddb.com/images/groups/1/5/4666/The_Forgotten_Properties.png

In this case we will use as an example the popular mod Tiberium Essence.
But the guide is compatible with any mod of C&C3 and RA3.
The only thing that changes is the name of the file ".skudef"

http://media.moddb.com/images/groups/1/5/4666/Shortcut.jpg

Steps to follow:


  • 1: Make or copy a shortcut for Tiberium Wars (CNC3.exe-file).
  • 2: Right click it and go to "properties".
  • 3: Now you have to add something in the "target" mask. After the path of the "CNC3.exe" type: [OneSPACE]-modconfig[OneSPACE]
  • 4: Now you need the path of the TiberiumEssence.skudef-file that is supposed to be in your mods-folder for TW (You can choose any directory or folder).
  • 4.1: Right-click on your mod.skudef-file (TiberiumEssence_1.51.skudef for example), and click in "create shortcut". Then go to properties of this shortcut and copy the line that is called "Target".
  • 5: Paste this path directly after the second "SPACE" (Respect the " ").
  • 6: After this you are done with the "target" mask and you can save the shortcut, rename it and directly start TE with it.
Example of how it should be the "Target" line of your shortcut:
"X?:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Tiberium Wars\CNC3.exe" -modConfig "C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars\Mods\TiberiumEssence\TiberiumEssence_1.51.skudef"




We hope that this simple tip has been of great utility for you.

Seems like it works on RA3 too

Just like the Forgotten mod, I think Carnius should just make an installer for the mod that automaticly creates a shortcut for you.

xD looks like OmegaGroup simply copied my tutorial and made some little changes to it: Moddb.com
They even included the same mistake like me: In the first line they forgot to include the "you" after "Are" just like me

Well first you need this
Commandandconquer.com
Its a fix so you CAN use Mod's for those games. What you do next i'm afraid I forgot. But it should be just like modding any game just do it in the Origin. Again, I forgot how to do it but if you figure out how please tell me ^^

just download it using origin, but execute it from cnc3.exe located on your origin games folder.

At all, CnC3 can be downloaded from Origin, but DO NOT REQUIRE Origin to play it.

BioClone: Yes it does. It's not just the launcher; the game executable itself has been modified to check Origin, and will launch the Origin application if you're not logged in on it yet.

Someone help me, please. I followed what to do that the tutorial instructed and it doesn't run the mod, just regular C&C3 TW. Am I missing something to run the mod?

It is possible to use this with Command and Conquer: Ultimate Edition Tiberium Wars on Origin. You just need to search for and download C&C Ultimate Collection Fixed Launchers. Here's the most current link for it. last time I searched for it, it got moved so you might have to look a little when you get to the link provided.

I did all the tutorial, but when I try to select the MOD from "game browser" they are in blank.

I made the file with the name MOD and put the tiberiun essence there, make the shortcurt, have the 1.9 pacth, all done.

But can´t load the mod, anyone?

hey i did what you told me and it worked and then i put the icon of the game as tiberium Essence and its just neat.

if you want to do it just find any tiberium Essence logo in moddb and then you will find it at your downloads. then just rename the .png to .ico then click the properties of the game the click change icon then browse icon then choose the TE icon. its easy hope it helps

This doesn't work for Windows 10. If you click on the C&C3;.exe file and go to properties; the shortcut menu isn't there.
