TibEd 1.7 updated with Tiberian Dawn bugfix
Posted by Koen - Wednesday, December 02, 2009 - 21:11 GMT+1

If you are trying to mod C&C'95: Tiberian Dawn under Windows Vista or Windows 7, then download the updated TibEd 1.7 and reinstall. The updated installer will set the permissions on the TibEd and Tiberian Dawn folders correctly. This will fix "Access Denied" errors for that game. Other games supported by TibEd 1 were not affected by this bug.

Heading for CommandCOM
Posted by Koen - Wednesday, August 19, 2009 - 19:08 GMT+1

I am heading for Cologne tomorrow, as I will be attending the CommandCOM event (which is about promoting the recently announced C&C4). I'm there on behalf of CNCNZ and I will bring a CNCNZ T-shirt. For coverage of the event (including my first steps on Twitter), check out CNCNZ CommandCOM Central. Or if you're interested in just the highlights, check the main CNCNZ site. Koen

Red Alert 3 (and Spore) deauthorization does not work on XP x64
Posted by Koen - Tuesday, January 27, 2009 - 22:34 GMT+1

Great. The Red Alert 3/Spore DRM sounded very nice: you get to activate the game 5 times, and don't need the disc in the drive. Of course, those 5 could easily run out, so EA has released a deauthorization tool so you can "uninstall" the game from a machine without actually losing one of your activations. The thing is, it just does not work on Windows XP 64-bit. Some error 5024, about being unable to load a security module. So when I get a new machine next week, I will need to use activation #3 (new Vista 64-bit), after #1 (my current desktop) and #2 (my laptop). Oh, and if Windows 7 arrives next year, then I bet I'll have to reinstall Windows. And probably the deauthorization tool will not work on 64-bit Vista either. That will cost me #4, and so within 18 months I will have used up 4 out of 5 activations. I'm all for this activation stuff, but not if the deauthorization tool does not work. And the fact that you have to download it manually for Spore is plain stupid. Patch it into the game already!
