PostSubject: How to run WBC series stably on modern setups   Sun Jan 10, 2016 8:09 pm

UPDATED on 20-Aug-2018
As many people have different setups and mostly new hardware and software old games have difficulty to be run stably. And since people always asking if there games crashes and not working properly I thought a simple guide would do fine(but no longer shorter). Any heading with writing possible crashes means it solves possible crashes.

For TPC we have youtube channel now:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjnAHR3TF4R_iUepT3cSpFg

In above Channel you will find simple 2 tutorial videos, one for uninstalling and another for installing, beware it is more basic than what is written here to help you.

Here below is the index of the Guide, below are the points explained.


  1. Essential Changes to game's .exe file properties before starting game to avoid problems ( Problems like invisible troops )
  2. Softwares to Install if game doesn't run after following point 1 and/or crash to desktop on starting
  3. Problems after installing GPU(graphics) drivers OR LOW FPS OR Slow game running RELATED
  4. BETTER UPSCALING(Un-needed by most)
  5. RESOLUTION LIMITATIONS(Improved Since 8.7 version)(Crash to Desktop fix also)
  6. CHOICE OF RESOLUTION(Improved Since 8.7 version)
  7. MULTIPLAYER, what ports to forward and ISSUES
  8. FOR SURROUND SOUND(Un-needed by most)
  9. FOR VIDEO RECORDING(OBS Studio)


Points starts here


  1. Essential Changes to game's .exe file properties before starting game to avoid problems ( Problems like invisible troops )

No problem  cheers , i have updated both this post here and on infinite interactive forum's so that people can see them where they think they might find answers. Was going to post this same thing on steam too but couldn't do it due to machine code from steam in my email giving me problem for my laptop.

I have a request could this be stickied here too?

But not all can be fixed from games side like the anti-virus, old eax support(maybe it can be) and driver corruption.

There is cursor flicker problem can't seem to find solution for it though, if you find it let me know will add it here.

P.S: Sorry for my delay on the document, i got work from uni. Will mail it as soon as i find time to print and scan them for you Smile

Joe can you ask people who have played the 1.3.25 patch with low fps to tested it again with my given guide instructions.

3.1 LOW FPS

With Win 10,
I've experienced this and found a permanent workaround. Win 10 comes with the latest Micrososft Visual C++ (currently 2013) by default.

Then Install 64x and 86x Microsoft Visual C++ previous to 2013, and the low fps problem will be permanently solved. (These files are free and safe to download from the official Microsoft site).

I'm not sure if you need to download all of them, but this is my control panel and it works like a peach  geek .

Points 5 & 6 are no longer available for The Protectors version 0.8.7 as custom resolutions are now a possibility.
