The Past Ain't What It Used To Be...

The first Command & Conquer received its last official update on the 21st of June, 1996. Since then, the game has been ported to Windows (as "Gold" version), and re-released in the big "The First Decade" and "The Ultimate Collection" collection packs, but has never received any more bug fixes.

The C&C Gold Patch 1.06 project aims to bring this classic into the new millennium, by fixing the old bugs, supporting higher resolutions, and adding new modding and mapping possibilities. It also contains an addon-based language system, allowing anyone to create translation packs for the game.

Apparently the version of CnCNet 5 included in the patch didn't work... so I fixed that.

Additionally, I've been informed various times that the game has a bug where the mouse freezes when you open the in-game menu. I knew that the fix to this was to enable Win95 compatibility mode, but unfortunately, the config tool removed compatibility if CnC-DDraw was enabled, because that's the way it worked best on WinXP (on which the patch was originally developed).

That has been fixed too now; the tool should now set the appropriate compatibility mode for every situation.

In the Covert Operations game files, I saw some additional unused infantry death sounds. Think you could add them in?

I saw them... but I don't think I will. Death sounds are assigned differently depending on the type of death, and these simply seem unassigned because they didn't particularly fit any of them. Also, I think some of them are used in Red Alert 1, and I don't really want the game to start sounding too much like RA.

Hi I recently purchased the English version of the Ultimate C&C collection. I do not seem to be able to get this patch to work unfortunately. Did anybody else manage to get this working with the Ultimate version?

The patch should be compatible with The Ultimate Collection, but as X005 said, you can always just download the full game. Just be sure to download both the game and the videos pack.

You could download C&C 1, it's free since a while.

What exactly does the Tiberium On/Off option do in the MP menu? The manual didn't explain it and even when I turned it off I saw Tiberium on the MP maps.

Honestly, a very good question. I have no idea. It might cause the tiberium to not regrow, to play Dune II style with resources limited by the initial map state.

Seems rather dumb though, since Dune II's generated maps actually add more Spice to the map if more players are placed on it, and C&C obviously has no such system since its maps are completely predefined.

Halp. I'm having an issue! I can't play it. Mouse is totally broken. The only screen the mouse works on is when selecting GDI or Nod from Start New game. If I move my mouse around on the main menu or during an actual mission, the mouse flies to the corners of the screen. Scroll rate is set to lowest possible. I cannot place the mouse pointer on any menu option or over anything in game. I can click drag but it is slow. This is on the latest windows 10. I've run it on Windows 10 before with no issue, not sure what has changed!

It's caused by the compatibility mode not playing nice with the graphics system override. Apparently a lot can be solved by specifically disabling the Win95 compatibility mode on C&C95;.exe after using the config tool (which currently has the problem it always re-enables it when you use it).
