    Horray! But unfortunately, these will probably play horribly on a 64-bit system.
    And Command and Conquer 4 sucks, I tried the beta. These classics are still what defines the series.

    Much agree, I loved Tiberian Sun, but didn't really care for the newer 3D ones. While they looked nice, they just didn't have the same appeal to me as the older ones did for some reason.

    Well, anyway, thanks for the heads-up Shakraka! [​IMG]

    I'm gonna soak up those freebies now. [​IMG]

    I bought Command & Conquer: The First Decade a few years ago so I already have them, but it's a nice move of them to give them away for free.

    Yes you can! You need to download the latest patches though.
    The hard part is finding other people just as bored as you are to play such an old game online.

    Tiberian Sun is generally thought the be the worst of the series.
    I think it's just too futuristic for the series, even it's sequel seems like it takes place earlier to it.
    The poor graphics don't help either.

    Is anyone else having problems downloading the Red Alert Soviet Disc? I'm always getting a CRC error for the .iso file when I try to extract the .rar file (everything else extracts fine).

    edit: Nevermind, it somehow worked when using a different browser.

    I actually liked C&C 4 beta.
    Oh and I just tested Tiberian Sun on Win 7 x64 (I had downloaded iso of the torrent)
    And it runs perfectly, no need for a patch or compatibility settings.

    Correct, if there is a way to run these under 64 Bit systems, I have never heard of it. However, I run all of them perfectly fine under a VMWare workstation virtual environment running Windows XP SP2 at native resolutions (1680 X 1050) (1600x900 in my new laptop).

    Sorry, but if you're using a 64-bit OS, can a Virtual OS run at 32-bit?
    If so, I might upgrade my Windows 7 RC to retail so I can use the Virtual Windows XP to play these games.
    I'm pretty mad because Red Alert 2 and all the older C&Cs lag horribly on my high-end computer.
