It most likely means your graphics card does not meet minimum requirements.

Additionally, it seems some cards claim to support DirectX 11, but really don't. Make sure you have a card that properly, completely supports DirectX 11.

If your computer has an on-board graphics card, check your control panel and make sure the C&C Remaster isn't using that one instead of your actual high performance card.

This game may seem simple, but it loads a lot of high resolution graphics. It needs that VRAM.

I just put a new PCI graphics card in and it meets the requirements. I uninstalled and reinstalled. Changed graphic settings and so on. My sidebar is still black. I can see the tiberium price and i can see the building text but nothing else. Im bummed. Waiting a long time to play. I can run the game fine Im just not able to see what to build or where it is? That is not a problem EA? Is there a patch for this annoying issue?????

Exactly what type of graphics card do you have?

From techpowerup.com:


Even though it supports DirectX 11, the feature level is only 10_0, which can be problematic with many DirectX 11 & DirectX 12 titles.


You need full DirectX 11 feature level for the Remasters. That card is literally more than a decade old. Upgrade your hardware.
