Music

A pleasant mix of Tiberian Dawn and Tiberian Sun tunes, including some pulsating action track mixes!

Known issues:

  • Same EA code bug, were anything which tints an object, will tint everything near the object.
  • Sometimes Obelisk Crystals stay lit or AGT lights stay flashing, I have noted similar behaviour in default C&C3. I might look into solutions at a future date.

Version 5.01

  • Fixed an issue that meant force firing on the ground with an upgraded Laser tower would crash the game! (Thanks to LeviathansWrath & Seph1999AD)

Installation

  1. Make sure that C&C3 is updated to version 1.9!
  2. Unpack the file using 7zip ( 7-zip.org ).
  3. Inside the file will be a 'readme' file and a folder named 'TiberianHistory'.
  4. Cut and paste the 'TiberianHistory' folder into your 'Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars\mods' folder, which should be in the 'My documents' section of your computer (typically 'C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents\Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars\Mods').
  5. If you get an overwrite* warning click 'yes'.

These instructions assume that you have a Windows XP PC with administrator rights. Ask the community for help with other set-ups.

*This new version does not overwrite the previous C&C history mod file, due to it having a different file name (so you can play the old version if you prefer it!)

Mods future?
