In this tutorial we are going to take deep look how to play C&C Tiberian Sun (Release year 1999) on Windows 10. EA released C&C Tiberian Sun as freeware in 2010, so you don't have to even pay to play it. Tore's has made really easy to use Tiberian Sun campaign installer that takes away lot of manual work. We are also using cncnet.org installers to add working multiplayer option to Tiberian Sun.

These installations includes:

  • Expansion pack Firestorm.
  • Single player campaign, cutscenes / movies, musics and skirmish mode.
  • Multiplayer on online and LAN.
  • TS-DDraw that can fix black screen issues, screen tearing, flickering graphics, alt+tab crashing, and it enables you to play on windowed mode.
  • TS-Config tool.
  • Works with 32&64bit Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10.
