Dawn of the Tiberium Age (DTA) is a stand-alone mod that combines Tiberian Dawn (C&C 95) and Red Alert. While classic mode gets as close to the original game-play and balance as possible, Enhanced mode provides improved game balance and a lot of fun new stuff. DTA features many customization options for Skirmish and multiplayer (where you can play as GDI, Nod, Allies and Soviet on over 100 maps), challenging original singleplayer missions, as well as co-op missions. Since this is a stand-alone mod, you don't require anything but the mod itself to be able to play: the original game is not required.

Hmm, i wonder if this will fix the slow menu frames. I also wonder if this will be extended to Mental O.

At least for me the menus are very fast with this renderer.

Testing this out with RA2 -- has noticeably better performance with heavy RAD fields than what I was originally using. Nice! :D

I swear I've tried using DDrawCompat before, but I don't know. It's not tucked away in my folder of DDraw hacks so maybe not.

Having trouble with in-game performance or in-game menus not displaying properly? While we already have 5 different renderers in DTA 1.15 along with the compatibility fix, those don't seem to be enough for giving the perfect experience for everyone.

DTA 1.16 includes the new DDrawCompat renderer, and based on our testing it seems to work pretty well on most systems, including systems that tend to have trouble with all the other renderers. So, if you think your performance could be better or you'd want the menus to work smoother, you should give this one a try after the release.

Thanks to narzoul of GitHub for creating DDrawCompat.
