1. What is Twisted Insurrection?

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.

Read the full storyline here.

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.

Placeholder text.

2. How do I install Twisted Insurrection?

Installation is very simple. Just follow these three steps:

  1. Download the mod from our official Mod DB site
  2. Extract the .zip package to an empty directory*
  3. Run TwistedInsurrection.exe

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.

Placeholder text.

3. Do I need Tiberian Sun to play Twisted Insurrection?

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.

Placeholder text.

4. Can I play Twisted Insurrection online?

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.

Placeholder text.

5. Where can I keep track of Twisted Insurrection?

Here's a list of all our official channels:

Placeholder text.

6. Where can I report bugs and share feedback?

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.

Placeholder text.

7. Why does the game freeze after I save?

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.

Placeholder text.

8. Why are Harvesters and some of the units invisible?

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.

Placeholder text.

9. What's ReShade and how do I use it?

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:

  1. Download ReShade from their website
  2. Install the Direct3D and/or OpenGL libraries
  3. In the TI client settings, select either the CnC-DDraw or TS-DDraw renderer
  4. Once you're in-game, use the Home key to open the ReShade menu and run the tutorial

Placeholder text.

10. Will you add tabs and/or other modern features to the sidebar?

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.

Placeholder text.

11. Will GloboTech become a playable faction?

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.

Placeholder text.

12. Will we see the addition of CABAL or the Scrin?

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.

Placeholder text.

13. Have you considered porting over to OpenRA?

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.

Placeholder text.

14. Can I use your assets in my own mod?

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.

Twisted Insurrection is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 Creativecommons.org

Placeholder text.

15. Why is any new tech cut-off once there are 74 cameos in the sidebar?

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.

Placeholder text.

16. Will individual missions be selectable again in future releases?

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.

That's all for now. Hopefully these resolved any questions you might've had. If not, then feel free to reach us.

Please, make the timer like in StarCraft 2. I need to know time (in seconds) for the buildings and units. And make in Skrimish option "Restart" please. Not very comfortable restart mission across "Abort" or "Surrender".

Sorry for my broken english, but I think you know what I mean.

There's no known way to change the sidebar "clock". The time it takes to build something is directly proportional to its price (walls are the only exception, they are built twice as fast as the price would suggest).

No known way to add a restart option to skirmish either, unfortunately. It shouldn't take long to abort the game and launch a new one though.

Is there some way to clear up veinhole runners quickly after killing the mouth, considering we don't have Weed-eaters in Twisted Insurrection?

Not yet. We have some plans for a potential weed eater replacement though.

Can you update FAQ on Reshade?
I noticed that when I tried to use it on TiberiumCrisis (Yuri's Revenge mod), then it even had some Reshade config included to make it probably easier to use. In the newer version I do not think you can install OpenGL and DirectX libraries and have to choose only one.

There is a bug in some missions which makes you unable to order units, build structures or pause the game. I remember that this happened to me when I was playing a GDI mission but while I was playing suddenly my units did not respond to my orders. and they just stayed still. I tried to pause to restart the mission but the pause menu did not open and I had no choice but to open the task manager to force close the game. That bug never happened to me in the vanilla game or in other mods. :/

This has been reported a few times before, can you tell exactly which missions this happens in? Does it ever happen in skirmish/multiplayer?

in the mission "Shepherd and his Flock" when I got into a wrong area and when I was detected there, the aforementioned bug occurred.

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…
