    GENERAL INFORMATION ******************************************************** 
       Command & Conquer is a real-time strategy-combat game developed by 
       Westwood Studios, the creators of DUNE II.  
       The Press Release :
           Imagine a brutal, devastating conflict of global proportions. 
           Now imagine it all fitting on two CDs.
           Introducing COMMAND & CONQUER, from the creators of DUNE II.
           A frighteningly realistic glimpse into the near future, when the 
           planet is divided between two forces battling for world domination.
           Players can fight for a peacekeeping alliance called the
           Global Defense Initiative.   Or their mortal enemy, a terrorist 
           organization called the Brotherhood of Nod.   Either way, they'll 
           have their strategies tested in a real-time world, complete with 
           over 60 minutes of intense full-motion video and 3-D rendered 
           graphics that are as visceral as they are visual.   Which of 
           course, is unfortunate for those with weaker stomachs.
           COMMAND & CONQUER's real-time combat system is designed to be 
           deep and meaningful, yet accessible.   Those familiar with 
           Westwood's earlier award winning strategy game DUNE II will 
           remember the ease of use in a fast-paced race of destruction and 
           mayhem.   However, we've made a few modifications you might want 
           to look into...
           Build and better your bases, unite or divide your forces, develop 
           and utilize guerrilla tactics and a wealth of potent electronic 
           hardware, and make sure that "Reduce the Opposition to pulp" is at 
           the top of your list of things to do today.
           As one person put it... 
                "The attention to detail is exemplary - it's like having a 
                fully-functioning miniature world-gone-mad crawling with 
                armies of intelligent beings, all secured in a big glass box, 
                and all at your disposal."
        Command & Conquer for Windows 95 offers the same exciting gameplay
        that can be found in the DOS version, with a few very cool additional
           * SVGA graphics let you see more of the battlefield than before.
             All graphics, menu bars, and units have been redesigned with
             SVGA in mind.  Movies have a Hi-res look and feel too!
           * Built-in Internet Head-to-Head support.   Westwood was the first
             company to support multi-player gaming over the Internet through
             it's game server since October 1995.  Now, you can find your
             friends (and enemies) via our chat system, and start internet C&C
             games with a click of a button.
        We expect C&C Windows95 to be out soon after Command & Conquer:
        Red Alert.
        COVERT OPERATIONS is a mission disk for COMMAND & CONQUER which will
        be released in three different languages.   It includes following
        * 7 new GDI and 8 new NOD missions.
        * 10 new multiplayer maps.
        * 7 new songs in Redbook Audio format - so you can pop it in your CD
        * Automatically patches your copy of Command & Conquer to the newest
          version available.
        You can find out more about COVERT OPERATIONS by visiting the Westwood
        Studios Web site at http://www.westwood.com.
         Command & Conquer (2 CD-ROMs) requires at least the following system 
         configuration :
              CPU:     486/66 or higher.
              RAM:     8MB total, 6MB free XMS or EMS, 560KB conventional RAM.

                        modem connection.
          NETWORK:      2-4 players over IPX compliant network.
          Command & Conquer will stream and mix all music directly from the CD 
          with sound effects in the game.  Any Soundblaster compatible card 
          capable of playing digital audio will be supported.   Audio quality 
          for both 8 bit and 16 bit cards is nothing less than superb.
    1.4 Is this DUNE III?
         Command & Conquer is not DUNE III.   The only item borrowed from our 
         earlier real-time strategy game is the cool interface, and even that 
         has been updated.   The game engine has been totally rewritten to 
         support more units and an enhanced artificial intelligence.
    1.5 When will Command & Conquer be released? 
         Command & Conquer is available world wide NOW.    Check with 
         A local software store for a release date if you don't see it, since
         there have been many reports of stores running out of stock.
         We appreciate everyone's patience while we finished work on C&C. 
         Thanks again for your support.   
    1.6 Is there a demo or screenshots available? 
         Yes!   A demo of Command & Conquer is available now.   Please visit
         our web site (www.westwood.com) for the game files.
         There are also .AVI movies, screenshots, and music clips from either 
         our ftp site at ftp.westwood.com or our web site at www.westwood.com.
    1.7 Can I play Command & Conquer against a friend? 
         Yes.   C&C will support Network, Null Modem and Modem play.   Network 
         mode allows four players to go head-to-head.   A computer opponent can 
         also be added to increase any game by one more player.   
         Each player must have one of the Command & Conquer CD-ROM's in their 
         system before play can begin.
    1.8 How about my GUS/ProAudio Spectrum/Whizbang 3000 sound card?  Support? 
         We will not support any card in direct or "native" mode.   Our new 
         sound drivers enable us to play and mix music and voices directly 
         from the CD-ROM.   Instead of hearing a computer generated version 
         of a guitar or drums, you'll be hearing the real thing right off 
         the CD.   Command & Conquer is one of the first Westwood products 
         to support DDA (Direct Digital Audio).     
         If your card is capable of playing digital sounds (and most 
         cards are), you should have no problem with sound support.
    GAME PLAY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS *********************************************** 
    2.1 How many units are in the game?
         Lots.  There are close to 50 different units and structures in the 
         game.   Each side has different units, different strengths, etc..   
         We have played here at Westwood quite often to ensure that the game 
         is perfectly balanced.   
    2.2 Are there air units which I can control? 
         Yes.   As stated before, this is not DUNE II.   A10's, Transport 
         helicopters, planes, and other attack craft will be able take orders 
         to land, take off, pick up troops, bomb,  etc..   In Command & 
         Conquer, you have real-time control of almost all units.
    2.3 How many missions are in C&C?
         In total, there are around 50 missions.   However, the missions 
         differ depending on which route you take in the game.   Finishing the
         game playing both GDI and NOD doesn't mean that playing the game again 
         will be the same.
         Roughly, it will take you about 15 successful missions to complete 
         the game using each side.   
         There are also specially designed multiplayer missions which are 
         configurable in a variety of ways.   You can play against any 
         combination of computer/player opponents (up to four players) 
         simultaneously.   One person cannot play by themselves in multiplayer 
    2.4 Am I limited in how many units I can create? 
         No.   When programming DUNE II, we had to stick to limited memory 
         requirements.   Now, your only limit is the amount of money you 
         have to buy reinforcements, (and how long you can keep your troops 
    2.5 Team Mode (?)
         Yes, teaming units will be enabled in Command & Conquer through a very 
         simple procedure.   Click on a portion of the screen, hold down your 
         mouse button and draw a box around the units you wish to team up, then 
         let the button go.   It's that easy.   And, you can select a whole 
         screen of your units to create a team if you wish.   There really 
         isn't any limit.
    2.6 Do I need to buy two copies of the game to play on two computers? 
         We have designed the game so that you won't need to buy two separate 
         copies of the game in order to play with a friend.  You can give away 
         one of your CDs so that you can both play over the modem. In order to 
         play the normal game, you'll need both CDs.
         The reason we're doing it this way is so that you can enjoy the 
         multiplayer aspect of C&C more easily.  Although we could have 
         designed it so that two copies of the game must be purchased in 
         order to use multiplayer, we are hoping that if we treat our fans 
         right, then they will in turn treat us right.
    2.7 How is the computer artificial intelligence compared to other games?   
         Since Command & Conquer was written from scratch, we were able to 
         implement a completely new artificial intelligence.  Instead, expect 
         a new adversary which will attack, retreat, regroup, attack again, 
         and probe your base for weaknesses.  Helicopters will invade, and 
         troops will pour through your walls all too often. 
         This game will not be easy.
    2.8 Team Mode (Alliance) option.
         Because so many of you asked for it, we decided to make it so that 
         you can team up with (or against) your friends in multiplayer mode. 
         Teams can be of one to three players, and of any type (GDI or NOD).   
         You will not be able to control your team members' units, but you will 
         have access to his refinery, helicopter pads, and other resources. 
         Most importantly, your units will not attack one another when they 
         come into direct contact.
    PLAYING THE GAME *********************************************************** 
    3.1 Special Keyboard Shortcuts
         C&C has a range of keyboard shortcuts and extra features which are 
         keyboard driven. These are intended for the advanced player and are 
         not essential to normal gameplay. They are, however, very cool:
         Unit Control:
            G        : Guard Area
                       Select a group of units and then hit G to put them into 
                       Guard Area mode. In this mode, units will patrol and 
                       open fire on any enemy units that come within range.
            X        : Scatter Units
                       This causes a selected group of units to scatter 
                       (for example, to make themselves into more difficult 
            S        : Stop Unit
                       Causes a unit to stop in its tracks.
         Keyboard Shortcuts:
            F7-F10   : Map Bookmark System
                       Use CTRL+F7-F10 to place a bookmark, then use 
                       F7-F10 to jump to that spot.
            <CTRL>-# : Team Creation
                       Use CTRL and a number key (0-9) to mark a group 
                       of selected units as a team.
            0-9      : Team Selection
                       Selects a pre-marked team (see Team Creation) as the 
                       current active group.
            TAB      : Open/Close Sidebar
            H        : Automatically selects and centers the view around your
                       construction yard.
            N        : Your next unit on the playing field is selected and the 
                       view is centered about it.
            R        : Allows resigning in single player mode as well as
            <HOME>   : Centers the view around the currently selected object.
            <ALT>-#  : If the <ALT> key is held while pressing a team number,
                       the specified team will be selected and the view 
                       centered over the team members. This is identical to 
                       pressing the team number and then pressing <HOME>.
         Multiplayer Options:
            A        : Alliance
                       Select an enemy unit and hit A. This causes your units 
                       to treat all the units of the allied side as friendly, 
                       as such you will not be able to target them. Note that 
                       this is not a reciprocal arrangement and your new ally 
                       must explicitly do the same thing to your units. This 
                       is a toggle and hitting A for a second time will cause 
                       you to declare war on your old ally.
            R        : Resign from Multiplayer Game
                       If all hope is lost you can resign, or surrender, by 
                       hitting the R key. This causes all your units to explode 
                       in a spectacular manner, thus depriving your enemy of 
                       absolute victory! It should be noted that anyone using 
                       this option in other than hopeless situations will be 
                       considered a wimp by their opponents and will be 
                       endlessly taunted in subsequent games. Probably.
          Cursor Modifiers:
            CTRL     : Force Attack
                       Holding down the CTRL key forces your cursor into
                       the target cursor. This allows you to target your own 
                       units, amongst other things.
            ALT      : Force Move
                       Forces your units to move when they would normally
                       just stand and fight. This is useful with tanks against 
                       enemy infantry, for example. Try it and see.
            CTRL+ALT : Guard Area or Unit
                       Select a group of units and then CTRL+ALT click on a 
                       building, this forces your units to patrol the area 
                       around the building looking for the enemy. They will 
                       engage the enemy if found. If you CTRL+ALT click on 
                       another one of your units (for example, the harvester) 
                       your selected units will guard that unit as it moves 
                       around the map.  This also applies to enemy units, 
                       which is perhaps not so useful.
    3.2 Quick Tips/Tactics.
        a) Using Chem Troopers.
              Chem troopers are only available in multi-player mode.  Chem
              troopers do one and a half times the damage of flamethrower
              infantry units, and can walk through tiberium without taking
        b) Building a Nuclear weapon in NOD single player missions.
              To allow your Temple of NOD to launch nuclear missiles in the
              final battle, you will need to retrieve the crates on levels
              6, 8, and 12.   If you do not find the crates before finishing
              the mission, the nuclear missile will not be available.  You
              may have to sell or destroy enemy buildings to get a few of
              the crates.
        c) Selling buildings.
              Selling a building will get you 50% of the purchase price.  Do
              not sell your construction yard!
        d) Capturing enemy buildings.
              By capturing an enemy building, you not only have the option
              of selling it for money, but you can build units and structures
              that you wouldn't normally be able to do with your own
    3.3 Cheat codes
        There are absolutely no cheat codes for Command & Conquer.   This 
        means that...
        1)   There are no cheat codes.
        2)   No cheat codes were included.
        3)   We didn't want to include any cheat codes.
        No amount of begging will result in something that doesn't exist.
        Also, a warning to those who would plunder our code in an attempt to 
        cheat in multiplayer mode.   Any attempt to change the software through 
        devious means will result in an out-of-sync error every time you try
        to connect to someone else.   We have conducted several tests to 
        confirm this.
    3.4 Chart for creation of units.
        Here's a chart for the creation of units in Command & Conquer.
        The number in parenthesis next to the unit number is the tech level
        required in multiplayer mode.

        player missions as unit given to you at start of mission or as a
        mission objective for capture.
     ** The Apache is a special case. To get them in later solo missions, you
        will need to capture a GDI construction yard. They are available as
        above in multiplayer games.
    3.5 Chart for creation of structures.
        This chart details what the requirements are to build structures in
        C&C.   Note that in single player missions, you may not have access
        to advanced buildings until later in the game.

    3.6 Description of crate contents in Multi-player mode. 
        Here is a brief explanation of the contents of crates in multi-
        player mode.
          MONEY          Random.  Can be in any amount up to $2,000.
          NUKE MISSILE   Equivalent of nuclear strike using Temple
                         of NOD. One shot only.
          REVEAL MAP     Uncovers the entire map for the player.  This
                         applies to the radar screen, as well as the
                         onscreen map.
          STEALTH        Will stealth any unit that discovers this
                         crate, as well as all units and structures
                         within a 50 foot radius.
          EXTRA UNITS    Random.  Can be any GDI or NOD unit.
          HEAL ALL       Heals all of your units and structures to 100%
          ION CANNON     Equivalent of ion cannon using the Advanced
                         Communication Facility. One shot only.
          NUKE STRIKE    Directs a Nuke Strike against the location of
                         the crate retrieved.   Very bad.
          BOMB           Explodes on contact.   Not good.
          HIDE MAP       Hides the entire map, except for your units.
          VISCEROID      Releases a Tiberium-spawned Visceroid into the
                         playing field.   Attacks randomly.
       If your base is completely gone, there's a chance you can make a
       quick comeback!   You must have at least $2,400 and no structures
       of any kind left on the map.   There is an excellent chance that
       the next crate you find will contain an MCV.
    PLAYING THE GAME WITH KALI *************************************************
    4.1 What is Kali?
        Kali is a program written by Jay Cotton which allows you to play
        network games using the IPX protocol over an Internet SLIP or PPP
        connection.  We have been playing C&C over KALI for a few months now,
        and it seems to work quite well.
        However, remember that we cannot provide technical support for KALI
        in any way.   If the words "IP Address", "ping", "slip/ppp" and
        "IPX" are unknown to you, this entire concept may be a little over your
        Again, neither Westwood Studios nor Virgin Interactive
        Entertainment can offer support for those of you wishing to
        experiment with the KALI software.
    4.2 How do I get the KALI shareware package?
        You can download the newest KALI software and other files you need at:
        While you're there, download PPP.ZIP and PING.ZIP if they're available.
        These programs are what you will need to dial into your Internet
        service provider and establish a PPP connection.    There are SLIP
        and network card drivers available as well.
        Remember, this program is shareware.   If you find it useful, we
        suggest you support Jay Cotton in his future programming endeavors
        by registering your copy.   
    4.3 How to set up KALI with C&C
        First, I'm not going to go through the entire process of explaining
        how to set up KALI to dial and connect to your Internet service
        provider.   There are examples that will show you how to do this
        in the KALI files.
        1.   Get the KALI software from the ftp site mentioned above.  You will
        also need PPP.ZIP.
        2.   Configure the PPP driver software to connect to your provider.
        There are excellent examples on how to do this included within the
        PPP.ZIP file.
        3.   After connecting to your ISP, set up and use KALI to connect
        to Kali Central (     This is where you'll meet others
        to play Command & Conquer.   After connecting you should see a list
        of other people connected, and the games that they're currently playing.
        Now here's the tricky part...
        PPP and KALI take up a lot of low memory.   The trick will be to load
        your MOUSE, CD-ROM drivers, PPP, and KALI, and still have enough memory
        left to run Command & Conquer.   If you're not using Windows 95, this
        should be a piece of cake.   If you ARE running Windows 95, I would
        suggest a boot disk with something similar to the following :
        CONFIG.SYS :
             DEVICE=A:\SBCD.SYS /D:MSCD001 /P:220 /E   (may be different for you)
        AUTOEXEC.BAT :
             MSCDEX.EXE /D:MSCD001 /V /M:15    (may be different for you)
        You can copy your drivers to your boot disk, or load them off your
        hard drive, it really doesn't matter.   However, if you are using
        Drivespace, you will have to disable it by hitting F8 when your
        computer boots up, then select "Step by Step confirmation" and skip
        any Drivespace or Windows drivers your system tries to load.   If you
        try to load Drivespace, you probably won't have enough memory left
        over to run Command & Conquer.  Make sure that C&C isn't stored on
        the compressed drive, or you won't have access to it!
        Command & Conquer can work in as little as 425K of free lower memory.
        You can probably load your PPP driver low, and your KALI driver high,
        and have enough depending on what the size of your drivers is.   If
        needed, you can rename your GAME.DAT file to GAME.EXE and execute it
        instead.   Your available memory, mouse, and sound system will -not-
        be checked for incompatibilities and we cannot guarantee that C&C
        will run on your system by running GAME.EXE instead of C&C.EXE.   But,
        you can give it a try, since it works for most people.
        After you have loaded your CD-ROM and mouse drivers, loaded PPP.EXE and
        KALI, run Command & Conquer and select the Multiplayer (Network)
        game option from the main menu.   You should see others playing C&C, or
        you can start a game of your own and wait for others to join you.  If
        KALI Central, or wherever you decide to log in to is very busy, it's
        probably best if you set up your own virtual network with the other
        players.   Use KCHAT, the Kali chat program to arrange this.
        If anyone has information they would like to add to this section,
        please feel free to email it to me.
    Playing with MPlayer and TEN ***********************************************
    5.1 What are MPlayer and TEN?
        WESTWOOD STUDIOS has signed agreements with MPLAYER and THE TEN NETWORK
        to deliver multi-player Command & Conquer action to the Internet! Unlike
        modem head-to-head games, both services will support multiple games of
        up to 4 players each over a PPP or SLIP connection. MPLAYER and TEN have
        websites on the Internet where you can find more information on pricing
        and service availability (see below). And don't be surprised if you see
        some of Westwood's best C&C players online on both services. We like
        stopping by to refine our skills, as well as hear your comments and
        As with Kali, neither Westwood Studios nor Virgin Interactive
        Entertainment provide technical support for MPlayer or TEN. However,
        both services have a tech support hotline and email address that you
        can use to get help:
     MPlayer   (408)342-8844    http://www.mplayer.com/help/tech/tech-form.html
     TEN       1-800-8040TEN    http://www.ten.net/betazone/email.htm
    5.1 How do I Connect?
        You will need a few things to connect to either MPlayer or TEN:
            1) A PPP or SLIP Internet connection
            2) Windows 95
            3) The services' respective software
        MPlayer is currently available in the continental United States and the
        metropolitan areas of southern Canada. MPlayer is accessible from Alaska
        and Hawaii if you have a T1 connection, but a modem connection may be
        inadequate for satisfactory game play.
        TEN is currently available to residents of the continental US and Canada.
        For full machine requirements, to register for the services, get your
        free software sent to you and see the service rates, visit the web pages
            MPlayer . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . http://www.mplayer.com
            Total Entertainment Network (TEN) . . . http://www.ten.net
        Full instructions for the software's installation and use is available
        at these sites and in the documentation that comes with the services'
        Both services will update you to a special online version of Command
        and Conquer automatically when you sign on. This will in no way effect
        your copy of C&C for solo or head-to-head play.
    MODEM/NETWORK HELP *********************************************************
    6.1 Modem Initialization Strings
        As detailed in the manual, we seem to get best modem
        performance with modem data-compression and error-correction
        turned off. You can do this by going to the serial game
        settings dialog and entering the appropriate init. string
        for your modem. This should be entered on the host (dialing)
        machine, the guest (receiver) should use ATZ. If you use these
        init. strings the modem speed may have to be set to the exact
        speed of your modem, for example 14,400 bps or 28800 bps. Here
        are example init. strings for some popular modems:

    6.2 How to increase modem multi-player performance.
        With music playing during a modem game, there is a possibility
        of pausing or very slow game play. For optimum performance, 
        music volume under the options menu should be set to zero 
        (far left), this is the default setting. The game speed should
        be satisfactory with sound effects on and music turned down.
        If you have a 486 system with an external modem you might
        experience pausing or very slow game play. This is due to
        the 8250 UART chip which is in most 486 class machines, this
        chip causes the CPU to work harder in null modem and modem
        games. There are several work-arounds: 
             1. Turn off both music and sound effects in the setup program 
             prior to playing the game. This will improve performance at
             the expense of losing all game sounds. 
             2. Install an internal modem. These modems have their own
             UART chips which are designed for higher performance.
             3. Install a high performance serial card in your system.
             If you are using a 14400/28800 bps external modem with 
             your 486 class system you should seriously consider installing
             a high performance serial card. These cards usually have a 
             16550A type UART chip which outperforms the 8250 UART in all 
             serial communications applications by buffering data more
    6.3 Network notes to remember.
        For multiplayer network games we strongly caution you to use a
        homogeneous network environment - that is, to use the same type 
        of IPX compliant network drivers (e.g., IPX, IPXODI etc.) on each
        system. We have found incompatibilities between drivers from
        different manufacturers so you should bear this in mind if you
        are having network game troubles.
        C&C should work with any IPX compliant network but we have found
        problems running with Microsoft MSIPX.COM. We strongly recommend
        that you avoid MSIPX and use either IPX.COM from Novell, or use
        IPXODI drivers compatible with your card. If in doubt you should
        ask your network administrator to upgrade your system.
    6.4 Networked CD-ROM drives and Multi-CD changers.
        C&C does not support multiple CD-ROM drives or CD-changers and assumes
        that you only have one CD-ROM drive. If you have more than one CD-ROM
        drive, you should insert the C&C CD you are using into the first CD
        driver letter. For example, if you have drives E:, F: and G:, your
        C&C CD should be inserted into the E: drive.
    TROUBLESHOOTING ************************************************************
    7.1 What to do when the game doesn't want to run...
        Command & Conquer has been tested on hundreds of computers.   If
        you're having a problem, it probably has something to do with the way
        your system is set up.
        Steps you should take :
             1.   Read the README file located on the CD-ROM.   It contains
                  valuable information about certain sound cards, Windows,
             2.   Read the troubleshooting section of this document!  If it
                  seems to be a common problem that people are having, chances
                  are you will find it answered below.
             3.   Check our web site or your favorite online service for
                  the newest version of this document.   You may also want to
                  check the message areas to see if anyone else has had
                  trouble similar to yours, and has already found a solution.

    7.21 Notes regarding Windows 3.1 or 3.11 usage with Command & Conquer
         C&C uses special code to launch itself from the Windows icon
         and will attempt to close any active Windows applications prior
         to running. You will not be able to access other Windows programs
         when C&C is active.
         This greatly enhances the performance and playability of the game
         on 486 class machines.
    7.22 How to get Command & Conquer working under Windows 95.
         To install under Windows 95, follow these four easy steps:
             1)  Click START/RUN, type D:\SETUP.EXE (where D is your CD-ROM
                 drive); type ENTER.
             2)  Follow instructions in setup program as normal.
             3)  When installation is finished, restart Windows 95 to
                 initialize the C&C icons.
             4)  Start C&C using START/PROGRAMS/WESTWOOD/C&C.
    7.23 Running C&C with Windows 95 and 8 megabytes of memory.
         If you only have 8 megabytes in your machine, you may need to make
         some modifications to allow C&C to run on the desktop.   Below is
         a step-by-step instruction manual for beginners to make the
         necessary changes...
             a)  Start Explorer and go to the directory where you installed C&C.
             b)  Find the C&C.EXE file, and right click it.
             c)  Choose CREATE SHORTCUT from the menu.
             d)  When the shortcut appears, drag it to the desktop.
             e)  Right click on the shortcut you just made.
             f)  Chose PROPERTIES from the menu.
             g)  Click on the MEMORY tab.
             h)  Look for the section that says EXPANDED (EMS) MEMORY.
                 It should have 'Auto' in the window. Click the arrow next
                 to the 'Auto' and scroll down until you see NONE.  Click this.
             i)  Look for the section that says MSDOS PROTECTED MODE (DPMI)
                 MEMORY.  It should have 'Auto' in the window.  Click the
                 arrow next to the 'Auto' . Scroll down until you see 16384. Click
             j)  Hit APPLY, then OK.
             k)  Start the game through the shortcut you have just created.
    7.24  Improving video playback performance under Windows 95.
         The performance of C&C in a Windows 95 DOS box is slightly
         slower than in a real DOS environment. You can improve movie
         playback performance by following these step-by-step instructions.
              a)  Go to the START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL menu.   
              b)  Double-click on the SYSTEM icon.
              c)  Click the PERFORMANCE tab, then click the FILE SYSTEM
              d)  Click the CD-ROM tab.
              e)  You will see a slider labeled SUPPLEMENTAL CACHE SIZE.
                  Slide the slider all the way to the right.  Remember
                  however that increasing your cache size reduces the
                  memory available to the rest of the system while in
              f)  Next, look for a window labeled OPTIMIZE ACCESS
                  PATTERN FOR: In the window, choose the one that best
                  describes your CD drive (single, double, triple, quad
                  and higher speed drive.)
              g)  Click the APPLY button. You will get a window asking
                  you to restart your machine. Do so.
              h)  Once you have restarted, run the game normally. This should
                  also increase the performance of any other CD title you have.
    7.25  How to fix modem problems under Windows 95.
         If you find that you have trouble connecting during modem play, or
         get sync errors when you connect, there are a few things you can do
         to solve this problem:
         a)  Check to see that the port setting in Windows 95 is correct
             for your modem. Windows defaults to 9600 baud.  You will want
             to change the default baud rate to 57600.   To do this:
             1)  Click on START/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL.
             2)  Double click the SYSTEM icon, click the DEVICE
                 MANAGER tab.
             3)  Click the plus sign next to the PORTS listing.
                 Double-click on the right COMM port for your modem.
             4)  Click the PORT SETTINGS tab. The window at the top (BITS
                 PER SECOND) is the baud rate for the port. Set this
                 for 57600 baud.
             5)  Click OK twice to close both windows. You may have to
                 restart Windows.
         b)  Make sure the error correction and compression on your modem
         is turned OFF. Check the README file that came with Command and
         Conquer or this document for a list of Modem initialization strings
         that will accomplish this (copy the initialization string for your
         modem in the README file to the init string box in the modem setup
         screen.)  If your modem is not listed in the README, you will need
         to check your modem manual or call the manufacturer for your modem
         to see how to do this.
         c)  If you simply cannot get Command and Conquer to connect
         correctly in Windows 95, reboot to DOS mode and re-run the game. Be
         sure that your sound card and CD-ROM drivers are loading in DOS.
         d) Check your modem type. If you have a Plug and Play (PnP) model, you
         must load the DOS drivers in your Config.sys or Autoexec.bat file in
         order for the game to detect your modem (since C&C is a DOS game). If
         you have a WinModem, you will not be able to use C&C-DOS in multi-player
         games using that modem, since those models are not compatible with DOS
    7.26  Other Windows 95 issues.
         Autodetecting Soundcards in a Windows 95 DOS box:
             Because the Windows 95 DOS box is really just emulating
             DOS (Windows continues to run in the background) you may
             experience problems autodetecting your sound card in this
             mode. There are two things you can do to address this:
             1. Do not autodetect, but pick your soundcard manually and
                enter the correct PORT, DMA and IRQ settings, or
             2. Run through Windows 95 DOS mode, as detailed below.
         Running through Windows 95 DOS:
             If you can choose REBOOT AS MSDOS from the START/SHUTDOWN
             menu and then still access your CD-ROM drive in that mode,
             we recommend running in that environment and installing from
             the DOS prompt. Whether you can do this or not depends on
             having the correct drivers loaded in the DOS environment.
         Windows 95 System Agent with C&C:
             The System Agent software, that is available for Windows
             95 (Plus! pack), can cause peculiar behavior with the C&C 
             setup process. If the setup program, when run from the hard
             drive, proceeds with a complete reinstall, then stop the 
             System Agent software.
         Screen savers in Windows 95:
             If you have a screen saver enabled while playing a modem
             game in Win95, C&C will timeout the modem connection and
             your modem game will lose its connection. To disable the
             screen saver use the following procedure:
                1. Click the "START" button on the TASKBAR
                2. Under the "FIND" menu item, select "FILES OR FOLDERS"
                3. In the "NAMED" field, enter "C&C.EXE"
                4. In the "LOOK IN" field, enter the drive letter
                   where C&C is installed
                5. Click the "FIND NOW" button
                6. Click the right mouse button on the C&C.EXE that
                   you are using
                7. Select the "PROPERTIES" menu item
                8. Click on the "MISC" tab
                9. In the "FOREGROUND" field box, deselect the "ALLOW
                   SCREEN SAVER" check box.
               10. Click the "OK" button
             The next time you run C&C the new settings will take effect.
             There is no need to reboot your system.
    7.3 My mouse isn't detected, or doesn't work correctly.
        If you encounter any problems with the mouse, such as erratic
        movement, etc., the first thing you should do is update your mouse
        driver.   Problems with the mouse, although rare, are almost always
        caused by older mouse drivers.  Contact your computer manufacturer
        or local software retailer for information on obtaining the latest
        mouse drivers for your computer.
        Many players have discovered that only the install program is
        incompatible with their mouse driver.   Install C&C without loading your
        mouse driver, then exit and load your mouse normally before playing the
    7.4 Divide Overflow upon installation of Command & Conquer.
        If you get a Divide Overflow error when running the INSTALL or SETUP
        programs on the CD-ROM, you have two methods of correcting this
             1.   You can update your mouse driver.   The C&C installation
                  software is not compatible with older mouse drivers.
                  Contact your mouse manufacturer for information on obtaining
                  the new driver for your mouse.
             2.   Unload the mouse driver when installing C&C.   A mouse is
                  not required for installation.   When you are finished,
                  load the mouse driver normally and run the game as the
                  instruction manual indicates.
    7.5 Command & Conquer Patch File (1.19p) & Revision History
        Westwood Studios will issue a patch to upgrade your 1.07 version of
        Command & Conquer to 1.19p.   You will be able to download this patch
        through the Westwood Studios web site, or the ftp site.
     1.07   --> Initial Release Version
     1.18P  --> Fixes disconnecting problems with Windows 95 and modem 
            --> Addresses US Robotics modem connect problems at 14400 or
                28800 baud.
            --> Fixes palette problem with the Diamond Viper video card. If
                you experience new graphic problems with the video movies, 
                then add the following entry to the CONQUER.INI file. The 
                entry must reside in the "[Options]" section. Example:
            --> Addresses the fact that briefings and cutscenes do not 
                appear under certain conditions.
            --> Fixes a bug with selling silos and receiving incorrect
                refund amount. Fixing this bug requires all versions
                playing in a multiplayer game to be identical. If there
                is an older version attempting to connect to the new
                version, then the new version must be "downshifted" into
                behaving identically to version 1.07. This is accomplished
                by adding the command line option "-o" to when running
                the C&C.EXE executable. To apply this command line option
                when playing from Windows 95, use the following procedure:
                 1. Click the "START" button on the TASKBAR
                 2. Under the "FIND" menu item, select "FILES OR FOLDERS"
                 3. In the "NAMED" field, enter "RUNGAME.EXE"
                 4. In the "LOOK IN" field, enter the drive letter
                    where C&C is installed
                 5. Click the "FIND NOW" button
                 6. Click the right mouse button on the RUNGAME.EXE that
                    you are using
                 7. Select the "PROPERTIES" menu item
                 8. Click on the "PROGRAM" tab
                 9. In the "CMD LINE" field, add " -o" to the end of the
                    line so that it looks like:
                    C:\C&C\RUNGAME.EXE -O
                10. Click the "OK" button
                When playing from Windows 3.1, use the following procedure:
                 1. In Windows, select the "Command & Conquer" icon.
                 2. Select the "File" menu. Then select "Properties...".
                 3. At the end of the command line add " -o". The line 
                    should look similar to this:
                    C:\C&C\RUNGAME.EXE -O
                 4. Now click on the "OK" button.
                The next time you run C&C the new settings will take effect.
                There is no need to reboot your system.
            --> Adjusts cost of Nod turrets to $600.
            --> Fixes problem with not receiving the nuclear missile
                when the special crates are found in certain Nod
     1.19   --> On those missions which feature the Temple of Nod, some
                people have experienced difficulty when trying to fire
                the nuclear weapon. This version addresses that problem
                by ensuring that the weapon is available on those missions.
                If you have a saved game from one of these missions you
                can get the nuclear weapon by loading the saved game and
                then restarting the mission.   
            --> Some people discovered a way to cheat using versions 1.18P
                and 1.07 such that it is possible to place a structure at
                any position in the map, breaking the normal adjacent
                building rule. This has been fixed in version 1.19 but you
                should be aware that 1.19 still connects to 1.18P and 1.07,
                so a person cheating with the older versions (if connected
                to the version 1.19) will cause a modem or IPX game to fail
                with a "Games are out of sync" message.
     1.20   --> This is the version that has been released with Covert
                Operations. Version 1.20 addresses everything in the previous
                patches. If you have Covert Operations, you don't need to
                obtain or install the patches.
     1.22   --> Hitting the 'S' key to stop a building from selling but getting
                men (the "infinite minigunner" bug) is fixed.
            --> A .pif was added that automatically sets the DPMI memory setting
                from AUTO to 16 MB (for Win95).
            --> Prevents Covert Ops from downgrading the patch.

    7.6 Known sound card issues
        C&C utilizes sophisticated techniques to autodetect your sound card.
        Because of the vast number of machine configurations possible on PC's,
        C&C may not autodetect your sound card or it might misidentify the card.
        For this reason you should treat the detected card as a suggestion only.
        If you know that the detected card is definitely wrong you can override
        the selection and pick the correct card from the SETUP program.
        If you select a sound card that is not present in your machine, your
        machine may lock-up, or the sound card may stop responding. Either of
        these situations may be corrected by simply turning off the computer,
        waiting 15 seconds and then turning it back on.
        Windows 95
        See the Windows section below for sound card notes.
        Creative Labs - Soundblaster 1.0/1.5 card
        These early Soundblaster cards do not support some of
        the features which are built into later versions of the
        card. This may result in lower audio quality on
        these cards.
        Soundblaster Compatible Cards
        The Soundblaster code in C&C is written for 100% Soundblaster
        compatible sound cards made by Creative Labs. If you have a
        Soundblaster compatible sound card from another manufacturer
        you may experience stuttering or popping in the sound, or even
        no sound at all.
        If you are unsure of the correct Port, IRQ and DMA settings
        for your Soundblaster compatible card, try typing SET from
        the DOS prompt. If your machine has been configured with a
        BLASTER environment variable in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file you
        should see a line similar to:
        SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 T4
        The number after the A (i.e., 220 in this case) is your port address;
        the number after the I (5 in this case) is your IRQ and the number
        after the D (1 in this case) is your DMA channel setting. Armed with
        these numbers you can go ahead and manually select your soundcard
        from the SETUP program and enter the Port, IRQ and DMA in the boxes
        when prompted. If you have a Soundblaster 16 or AWE32 soundcard and
        you are having difficulty with autodetection, these same comments
        apply except that you may have to enter the number after the H as
        your DMA setting, depending on your configuration.
        Compaq Computers
        Some Compaq machines may not autodetect the installed sound
        card.  If this occurs, try selecting Sound Blaster Pro/Pro2
        from the SETUP program.
        Sound Galaxy Basic 16
        This Soundblaster compatible card can sometimes be incorrectly
        autodetected as a Soundblaster Pro or Soundblaster 16, causing
        unpredictable results. We recommend that you manually select
        Soundblaster and enter the Port, IRQ and DMA values that
        correspond to your card. See the comments under Soundblaster
        compatible cards above.
        ESS AudioDrive
        Under certain circumstances the autodetect code can incorrectly
        identify this card as a Soundblaster 16. If this occurs you will
        need to override this driver by selecting ESS AudioDrive with
        the correct values for your system.
        Adlib Gold
        Under certain circumstances the autodetect code can return
        incorrect Port, IRQ and DMA settings. If you are having difficulty
        obtaining sounds on this sound card try manually selecting the
        card in the SETUP program and entering the correct Port, IRQ and
        DMA settings.
        Golden Sound Pro 16
        We have found that better results may be obtained on this
        sound card by reducing the game volume from the in-game
        sound control menu. Volume levels should be set to about
        half way.
        Some Gravis Ultrasound owners may experience audio clipping
        and/or reduced game performance.  We recommend that you turn
        the volume for musical scores all the way down (off) to see
        if this helps.
        If you continue to have trouble with your soundcard please
        consult the troubleshooting section of your soundcard manual
        or contact Westwood technical support as described at the end
        of this document.
    7.7 Running C&C in OS/2 Warp
        Westwood does not support or test products with OS/2. These settings we
        supplied by a customer (thanks to Thomas Infortunio) - use them at your
        own risk.
        "In general, the game runs without flaw when using these notebook
        settings. On a rare occasion there may be anomalies with sound i.e.
        repetition of dialog, or stuttering of music, however, these are more
        likely caused by OS/2's treatment of the soundcard as opposed to a game
        problem.  I have had no problem running modem games from the same OS/2
        DOS VDM.  Any notebook setting not shown (and some that are) can be
        assumed to retain their default values."
