Notes

  • The SecuROM copy protection was broken with this patch, as right-clicking on executables or their shortcuts would freeze and/or crash Windows Explorer. A quick fix was released. [1]
  • Kane's Wrath was originally built upon a pre-1.05 version of Tiberium Wars, hence no changes made after that patch made it to Kane's Wrath except for the ones individually mentioned in the changelogs for patches 1.01 and 1.02.
