Executing WINEPREFIX=~/.tiberiansun/tiberiansun winetricks cnc_ddraw, like bigla did, fixed the bug with the menus for me too. Thanks!

OK, well I don't no beep about this kinda stuff so... but as the snap-version works, is there a way to like reverse engineer that? Don't ask me how tho :P

For me with or without the 'bigla' fix the menu do respond and when it doesn't I can get it back by pushing ESC. (and as of below text, close that window)

Two or three times I really hammered the menu with mouse clicks and I saw the window popup for a brief moment that should show up, the one where you go for skirmish, etc. so can it be like in the background so you won't see it and thus locking the possibility to click in the window that shows as the focus are on a window that won't show?

Just a lame persons thinking here ;)

//thx for answering, been over a year so I didn't really think anyone would see it.

PS. best tune in here is 'Ion Storm' :P :P

I tried fixing it by incorporating cnc-ddraw into the /opt/tiberiansun game data folder, and it still freezes when I start a new campaign from the main menu.

I'm thinking the engine has just become so decrepit over the years it may not be salvageable, but if anyone else can figure it out, I'd be glad to merge the fix here.

Maybe try out OpenRA, I hear the Tiberian Sun alpha is in a pretty good state

I tried the cnc-ddraw thing with winetricks as 'bigla' said but that won't work for me, probably doing something wrong but, so now I use the one from snapcraft.io but I hate snaps.

Can the author of this fix this pleeeease? I love this game.

Menus didn't work for me. Installing cnc_ddraw via winetricks in the ~/.tiberiansun/tiberiansun folder manually fixed it. HTH

Added a fix into the WINE prefix script to modify the direct draw renderer. Now works for me. You'll need to regenerate ~/.tiberiansun, can be done by deleting it, but be careful to copy out any saved games.

When clicking on Options i don't see any menu. Also there is no mouse cursor.

So long shot but all mirrors seem to not work anymore(No surprise in a way since it's now 2018). Any chance another mirror is out there. Or do anyone have the file to share so another could be made?

EDIT: Found my own answer. Here is a working mirror

I picked zoneofgames.ru, it seemed to be the fastest. I didn't download its copy fully so I could check the hash, but the size in the index is the same. If anyone has issues with the hash check failing, just say and I'll change it. No package release increment, since only the source URL has changed, everything else should be the same.

Ah, intitle:"index of", good trick. I couldn't think of how to isolate indexes myself. I'll make a release using one of your suggested source URLs.
