Dawn.exe throws this error "The application failed to initilize properly (0x0000142). Click on OK to terminate the application.
I'm using TFD with nyder's fix and dawn of the tiberium age and the original game/expansion load fine. This is version 2.7 with the SSM fix by the way

Okay seems another mod was interfering, I've reinstalled, patched 1.01 and 1.02 for TFD, run nyder's 2.03 mod fix and now it's telling me to pop in a TS disc ! help?

I hammered away at this all night, trying everything from copying the mapr? files and renaming them to 2 and 3 (read this somewhere here) to using Nocd cracks... Really can't figure out what's going on here!

umm... TFD TS already IS NoCD. All you need to do is patch the exe file of Return of the Dawn. The tool to do this is included. Just read the notes on the download page

Yes it is. It does a useless check on the TFD DVD, but the game itself runs 100% off your hard disk. It doesn't read or need any files from that DVD. And that goers for ALL of the TFD games. None of them really need the DVD, except for that useless startup check.

SON OF A! I didn't even think to patch the dawn.exe, given that the patcher throws an error when you feed it anything but a 2.03 game.exe gah... I'll try when I get home. Thanks for the reply Nyerguds

Dont even think about patching the TFD version of the 2.03 TS executable, EA totally recompiled the TS executable, so its very different.

Apoptygma... dawn.exe is an edited TS 2.03 game.exe file. Thus, it can be patched with the tool.

Hyper:
IIRC it checks some random string somewhere in the exe, to make sure the file is indeed a TS 2.03 game.exe file.

Better than checking the filesize... stopped doing that after the first time someone used a resource editor to replace the icon X_x
