Solutions
  • Q: I get an error during the installation that says: 'An error has occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access is denied.' or 'Error creating registry key: -//- RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5. Access is denied.' or 'Out of system resources.'
  • A: Reboot your PC, then start the installation again.

  • Q: Nothing happens when I start the game, i.e. it crashes immediately.
  • Q: When I enable the widescreen resolution the cmd window gets full of red messages.
  • A: You need to install/update '.NET Framework 3.5'. On Windows 7 and later this component installs automatically, but if this didn't happen, follow the steps:

    1. Press 'Windows Logo' + 'R' keys on the keyboard.
    2. Type 'appwiz.cpl' in the 'Run' command box and press 'ENTER'.
    3. In the 'Programs and Features' window, click on the link 'Turn Windows features on or off'.
    4. Check if the '.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)' option is available in it.
    5. If yes, then enable it and then click on 'OK'.
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and restart the computer, if prompted.

  • Q: When I launch the game I get an error: '0xc0000022'.
  • A: You need to do the same steps as in previous Q&A, but instead of the step 4 you need to check 'DirectPlay' under 'Legacy Components'.

  • Q: I have a multiple monitor system and experience problems with enabling the widesceen resolution.
  • A: Enable it through the 'Manual Mode' and enter the resolution of your primary monitor, i.e. the monitor you want to play the game on.

  • Q: I’ve enabled the widescreen resolution but it doesn't seem to work in main menu.
  • A: Custom resolution affects only the gameplay, main menu will be always in 800x600.

  • Q: I cannot connect to host in multiplayer with this patch installed.
  • A: Try to reinstall the patch with unchecked 'Enable Windows XP compatibility mode' option.

  • Q: Why Steam Overlay doesn't show up while playing the game?
  • A: The game uses DirectDraw for graphics rendering. Steam Overlay works only in DirectX games.

  • Q: Is there a way to use the original music instead of the new one?
  • A: The original music is a one 30 minutes music file with fixed order of tracks. Every time you will play the game, you will hear the same tracks in the same order. If your match will be more than 30 minutes, you will not hear music until the match ends. The new music is devoid of these shortcomings.

  • Q: When I play vanilla game or patched, the gameplay stops/freezes, but music still continues to play. It stays like this for about 10-20 seconds then it returns to normal. It happens very often.
  • A: If you have a CD/DVD drive, you need to insert a disk into it, no matter which. For some reason, the game checks for a disc in the optical drive on some system configurations.

Works perfect for me. Much appreciated patch.

When I install this I get the new launcher and the option to select widescreen, but the game boots with no new content and then when I try and play a random match it crashes to desktop. I've tried to reinstall three times now and it does it every time. Advice on this in the FAQ is not helpful as my NET Framework is on and I am running Windows 10.

Game is installed on an external hard drive and so is my steam library. Mod is in exactly the same place.

I installed it but it's not in widescreen! Not in menus, neither during gameplay.

i need help... My game constantly freezes and lags. chose a worker freezes, chose war freezes, chose a building freezes, but the sound does not freeze.
sent the worker for the carbon freeze. Anything .. and when you start to make wars out of 3 barracks, you can just sit for 30 minutes and watch how everything hangs, every second. How to solve this problem?????

The start menu is still a pixelated black/white mess for me even with this installed, both on Steam and the GOG versions. Anyone know a fix?

I dunno it its this addition, but It won't let me change the game speed, its greyed out when I am in game.

Very Helpful! The Widescreen-Option makes the game look much better and gives a lot of oversight. The installation works pretty fine and the new start-menu is a big win. Thanks a lot!

Although I had a small bug: My save games were not visible in the game the first time I started the game with wide screen, but after a restart they were back. So no big Problem.

Thanks, awesome, now SWGB runs in a Windows 10 VM on my 5K iMac :steamhappy: If only I knew how to get a better screen resolution it would be even nicer but I’m happy already … memories of olden times …
