Product: Command & Conquer Remastered

Summarize your bug My sidebar is black/blank. It does not matter how I change the graphics options the sidebar remains black, which is realy frustrating!
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Not sure
What happens when the bug occurs? You cannot enjoy the game you have been waiting for for years...
What do you expect to see? My sidebar.....

How do I get to see my sdebar???

It’s on both c&c and red alert. Some of the overlay graphics are not showing on the options screen either.

Same problem here, at least i can see the titles and build stuff but real hard to toggle infantry etc also in the options menu there are no interactive buttons, virtually impossible to play.

Use the key Q W E R T Y they toggle through the menus. It helps but mine is blank too.

Use the keys QWERTY they help you toggle through so you can make more men

Here is what I did:

1) Right click on desktop, open NVIDIA Control Panel (https://imgur.com/eZo16dT)

2) Go to the Manage 3D Settings section, select "High-performance NVIDIA processor" (https://imgur.com/dbvnI9Y)

3) Play with the menu bar visible Standard smile

Question on this ... if you you right click on desktop and do not see NVIDIA control panel than does that mean I need to upgrade my graphics card?

 

I am attempting this on windows 10, but I run my windows through parallels 11. Not sure if that matters or not.
