The Tiberian Sun Client is a complete, stand-alone Tiberian Sun package for both players and modders. It fixes all known (fixable) bugs in Tiberian Sun and offers a ton of new functionality, including a new easier-to-mod file structure, new game options and pre-defined starting locations and teams. With the Client's bugfixes and enhancements, Tiberian Sun players get a significantly enhanced experience compared to the original game, while enjoying gameplay exactly identical to the original game.

For modders starting a new Tiberian Sun mod, it is not required, but highly recommended that you begin with installing the TS Client. The new file structure directly exposes the most critical INI and MIX files of the game, meaning that you don't need to download any special tools for most basic modding.

Features of the Tiberian Sun Client:

  • Full Tiberian Sun and Firestorm campaigns included, with optionally downloadable movies (about 1.3 GB in size)
  • Skirmish and CnCNet multiplayer support with pre-defined starting locations and teams
  • Dynamic map preview showing starting locations and teams on the map
  • Full CnCNet multiplayer support, including automatic transfer of custom maps, passworded games and private messages*
  • Support for spectators
  • Allows modding similar to Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection
  • All TS INI bugs fixed - includes fixes from Aro's Tiberian Sun: UMP
  • Compatibility with the latest operating systems, including Windows 7, 8.1 and 10
  • Saves statistics from all games of your commander career
  • Automatic updates (you can opt out) for delivery of bugfixes and possible additional content like multiplayer maps
  • FinalSun Map Editor included
  • Extra game options including Build Off Ally, Harder AI, Disabled Super Weapons and Disabled Refinery/Silo Storage
  • Includes some of the best and most beautiful multiplayer maps created for TS by the community (selectable in the "Fan-made" gamemode)
  • Enhances the game with convenient features like displaying health of units and structures when you hover over them

* This client is not compatible with the official CnCNet client hosted on cncnet.org, but you can play with other players that also use this client.

To install the Tiberian Sun Client, simply extract the files contained in the download into a new, unique directory. This Tiberian Sun package is stand-alone and does not require the base game to function.

For modders with programming experience

If you're a programmer and wish to modify the client, the C# code is open-source at Github.com. Feel free to fork it and do whatever changes you want. We only have a request that if you release a public mod that uses the client, you credit Rampastring of Dawn of the Tiberium Age (the mod that the client software was originally made for).

The hacks and bugfixes written in x86 ASM and C for the Tiberian Sun game executable (Game.exe) are also open-source at Github.com

As most of you have surely noticed, Dawn of the Tiberium Age and Twisted Insurrection got large updates last autumn that also included an entirely new client. However, this side-project of ours was left with the old, by-now horribly outdated client for a long time. Some of you have even been asking for an update in the comment sections. Today the situation has finally changed; the Tiberian Sun Client package has been updated to use the latest, same technology that DTA and TI use.

TS Client Main Menu

The update servers for the old version of the client went offline almost a year ago. Because of that, the old version (4.xx) of the client unfortunately won't be automatically updated to the latest version. So, you'll have to download the whole package again. But it should be worth it!

If you want singleplayer campaign videos and want to save yourself some bandwidth, you can keep the video MIX files (MIX\Expand01/02/03.mix) from the old version, download the video-less version of the new client, and then move the video MIX files from the old version to the MIX\ directory that resides inside of the new version's directory. You'll also have to rename the files from Expand01/02/03.mix to Movies01/02/03.mix, respectively.

TS Client Skirmish Lobby

A lot has changed since the old 4.08 version of the client. We don't have a detailed change-log available, however. The development of the new client, that has been re-written from scratch, started roughly a year ago and so all other changes have also accumulated over the year, and in the process we didn't keep track of every single small change that has been done. I did list some of the more important changes in the changelog, but that's only a fairly small sub-set of what a real changelog would look like. Despite the lack of a changelog the project's aim has stayed consistent though; we've only fixed bugs and extended Tiberian Sun. The original gameplay, including campaigns, remains unchanged from Tiberian Sun with the exception of bug-fixes.

With this release I'll also take the opportunity to announce that the client was made open-source a while ago. You can find its C# source code on GitHub at Github.com

In addition to the client, the bug-fixes and feature extensions to the original Tiberian Sun Game.exe file by the CnCNet team have been made open source. The code is available at Github.com. Unless you're very skilled in x86 Assembly language, C/C++ and reverse-engineering, the code is probably not going to be much of use for you however. The repository also currently lacks a few changes that I made for this package's Game.exe; I'll push the changes to the repository within the next few weeks.

With the new spawner and client, it's unlikely that there's all that much to fix or improve in this project anymore. But if something that can be fixed or improved with a reasonably low amount of work is found, we'll update the build as usual. Until then, have fun, commanders!

Is there a version of this that updates RA2 and YR? I understand you can't package RA2 or YR as they weren't released for free, but I'd very much like to play those in a state that is more compatible with modern systems outside of loading up mental omega.

Not exactly. The CnCNet Yuri's Revenge client provides a fairly similar experience for Skirmish, but it doesn't support the singleplayer campaigns, nor does it have extras like the map editor. If you're interested in it anyway, you can download it from Cncnet.org

I've been trying to get Tiberian Sun running well on my machine and using Tiberian Sun Client is the closest I've gotten so far. However, I'm still getting freezes when I use the menu, such as when I save the game or something. It doesn't crash the game and I can usually Alt-Tab out and back in (maybe that causes the screen to refresh or something?) to get it to continue, but it isn't ideal.

So far, I've used Tore's Tiberian Sun installer (beta 11r6) and now Tiberian Sun Client, and both seem to have this issue. I've also tried different renderer options, like TS_DDRAW and DDrawCompat.

The vanishing pause menu is an irritating bug it's caused by newer graphics drivers if I remember correctly. It's a pain but if you try clicking on the approximate location of the menu buttons they usually reappear.

Yeah, I saw somewhere that said it was a driver issue, particularly with Nvidia graphics cards (and I'm using an Nvidia card myself).

Some of the renderer options result in the game locking up completely if I use the menus, whilst some result in the slow menus and disappearing menus. I've also had cases where the game itself appears to freeze up without having used the menus, and an Alt-Tab out and back in brings it back.

I was hoping to find a source port for the game, but so far it doesn't seem like there is one, only modified versions of the game engine.

There is sadly no optimal fix for all systems, changing the renderer is the only thing you can try. For many systems there's a renderer that makes the game work perfectly, but some suffer from issues with the menus.

The original game engine is closed source, which makes fixing issues like this difficult.

I wonder if the new dgVoodoo2 wrapper released about a week ago would work better? It looks like the previous dgVoodoo2 versions had issues with Tiberian Sun, but I've not seen anything regarding this new release.

I just decided to give it a try (though it took me a while to get it to work with TS Client as it kept replacing it with TS-DDRAW instead, so I had to replace the one in the game folder as well as the one in the Resources folder).

I've only played a few minutes with it and the menu was very responsive. I didn't get a crash either (but an extended play should be done to test that). What I did notice, though, is that scrolling seemed a little choppy, with left, right and down scrolling being slow, but for some reason scrolling upwards was fine.

Hey there, I recently found out that TS vehicle health bar frame is out of place, it should be 1 pixel to the right. It can be changed in select.shp. I changed it myself and I have to admit, those little things can realy spark up the game. Anyway, just letting you know how to make this awesome game even better.

Thank you for this! Now I can stream Tib Sun, do you think you can do the same thing for C&C95;, Red Alert and Red Alert 2/Yuri's Revenge??

You could try the versions on CnCNet's site Cncnet.org

For C&C95; and RA1 there's singleplayer versions available under "View all downloads" on their pages. For YR there's no singleplayer campaigns included however, and you need to have the original game installed.

Highest Rated (7 agree) 9/10

Rated 9/10 because it is a simple yet flawless project that everyone new to the field of modding should look at. I kept it one point out of 10 because it's, unfortunatelly, still quite incomplete.
