so to start to get things out of the way first of all i can launch the game normally using the online launcher itself and play online through there, BUT i'm trying to play modded tiberium wars, specifically tiberium essence and since i know people with it i'm trying to play it with them and when i try to hook the launcher to my mod shortcut it just doesn't hook.
a couple of weird factors to this is, 1st of all i've GOTTEN IT TO HOOK ALREADY! this is the thing that infuriates me the most because i've been able to hook tiberium wars with the mod before but all of a sudden it has just stopped working.
secondly i'm able to hook kanes wrath and other games so its not a problem with the launcher (even so i already attempted uninstalling and reinstalling).
so as a bit of miscellaneous information the shortcut for the mod works perfectly fine (and as stated used to work with online as well) and the only possible factor i can think of that caused this is i only noticed it happening after i put in my disc of kanes wrath played it for a couple days then went back to tiberium wars when i tried to play online with the mod it just didn't work anymore. Additionally when i click hook it does give me the standard "do you want this app to make changes to your device".
other than all of this i have no clue what could possibly be causing these events.
