Twisted Insurrection (TI) is a critically acclaimed, standalone modification of Command & Conquer™ Tiberian Sun™. It features a complete redesign of the original game, set in an alternate what-if? timeline where the Brotherhood of Nod was victorious during the first Tiberian War.
Along with the total overhaul of the original game's visuals, sound effects, and packing an all-new original soundtrack (featuring Frank Klepacki), Twisted Insurrection gives you an entirely new arsenal of forces to command in massive single- and multiplayer battles. Choose between the old rivals GDI and Nod, or pledge your allegiance to the futuristic GloboTech or the elusive Forsaken. Play over 50 brand new solo and co-op missions, covert operations, re-imagined Tiberian Dawn missions and more. Customize your game experience by choosing from dozens of game modes and options.
Installation is very simple. Just follow these three steps:
Pro tip: Twisted Insurrection uses an intermediary client app through which you can configure, set up and start the game. If you already have TI version 0.39 or later installed, you can update the mod via the update notification on the client.
*Twisted Insurrection is standalone, therefore it does NOT require Tiberian Sun to be installed. Attempting to install Twisted Insurrection on top of Tiberian Sun will NOT work.
No. Twisted Insurrection is standalone and runs by itself. You do not need Tiberian Sun or any other Command & Conquer game installed to play Twisted Insurrection. See the above warning.
Yes. Twisted Insurrection uses CnCNet which makes online play a breeze. First, make sure you are connected to the internet, then click the CnCNet button on the client main menu. Log in with your prefered username, and you will be sent to the Twisted Insurrection multiplayer lobby. There you can host and join games and chat with friends. You can also visit other CnCNet games' lobbies.
If you encounter any problems with CnCNet, seek help from the support channels on their website.
Here's a list of all our official channels:
We are always looking to improve the quality of Twisted Insurrection and squash any bugs that are left crawling around. If you have come across any issues or see anything that could be improved, please head over to one of our support channels and let us know as soon as you can:
Note: Please keep in mind that, as Twisted Insurrection is not a finished product, there may be a few placeholder relics from Tiberian Sun. These will be replaced in due time, but until then, please do not report placeholder graphics.
The game hasn't actually frozen, it's a rendering issue which causes the menu to become invisible. This is caused by an incompatible renderer. Exit the game, go to the client settings, and on the display tab, select a different renderer. The best renderer depends on your system setup, but CnC-DDraw and TS-DDraw support most modern systems.
This happens if you've installed Twisted Insurrection on your Tiberian Sun directory. TI is standalone, meaning you must install it on an empty folder. See Question #2 for more information.
ReShade is a post-processing visual effects utility that lets you modify and improve the game's visuals in real-time. You can tweak colors, lighting and apply various pre-defined visual effects (shaders) such as bloom and light rays.
To use ReShade in Twisted Insurrection, follow these steps:
Unfortunately the sidebar is one of the TS engine's many hardcoded limitations. Unless someone figures out how to reverse-engineer the sidebar, we have no way to change it.
Time will tell. We have definitely noted the popularity of this request. However, such a major change will not be easy, as GloboTech was not originally intended to be a playable faction. Their purpose was to spice up the campaign and skirmish maps, acting as valuable points of interest for players to compete over. As such, changing them to a playable side will require drastic changes to their arsenal, as well as maps that have those assets as capturables.
In this alternate timeline, CABAL evolved via a slightly different path. The smug AI is still the Nod equivalent to GDI's EVA, but not as independent as in Firestorm. As for the Scrin, it is unlikely they will make a direct appearance.
So much time and effort has gone into building TI on the TS engine, it's unlikely that we'll start over on unfamiliar grounds. At least not in the foreseeable future.
Generally no. Twisted Insurrection and all of its assets, with the exception of original Tiberian Sun assets and public assets as listed in the credits, are property of the Twisted Insurrection Team. You are not permitted to use any proprietary assets from Twisted Insurrection in any public project without explicit permission from the developers.
If you wish to use our assets for your own private and personal use, this is of course allowed, but any form of redistribution of the mod assets is strictly forbidden, with or without credit unless you've been given permission.

This is the result of a work-around developed to prevent the whiteboy-bug (named after the modder that discovered it), which crashes the game if there are more than 74 cameos available.
The work-around prevents these crashes, however it does so by capping the amount of cameos you can see in the sidebar. This is one of the reasons why tech content is not available in certain game modes.
Yes, a feature that allows you to toggle between campaign or individual mission selection is currently in the works and will be available in the client settings.

A really stunnning mod for the new graphical power alone. What the team had to do to make Tiberian Sun comply with these new effects, I don't even want to know, because it most likely has to involve human sacrifice. Cities look like what was promised before the release of TS by Westwood and the Tiberium lifeforms are as strange and varied as they should have been, even outdoing Firestorm's alien feeling. A few times I thought the units needed more balancing, but overall, every unit feels like it…
