- Install TA GOG edition using the defaults, it’ll go into “C:\GOG Games\Total Annihilation – Commander Pack”
- Install TA_Patch_Resources.exe – deselect “record all games” unless you want that. Default the rest. Don’t check for updates or launch.
- Install TA_Patch_3902.exe – deselect “record all games” again, unless you want that. Default the rest. Don’t check for updates or launch.

Go into the GOG TA folder, “C:\GOG Games\Total Annihilation – Commander Pack”, and you’ll see a TA Escalation folder. In there is the launcher, “TA Escalation.exe” That’s the joint right there. Run that. Set screen rez in the launcher. Get pwnd.
