Ah, and I sadly don't have any C&C older than RA2 on hand. Could offer to get myself stomped at 8-Bit Armies, if anyone is up for a bit of that.


Good news everyone! The link below has modded versions of the C&C series, which can be played online. Nice integrated widescreen patches too. Gave Red Alert 1 a quick test with a friend and it seemed to work fine. You dont need to have the original games installed for it to work, so dont worry if you didnt have them already.

£1.24 for Raven Shield is pretty good!

I wonder if they've touched the code in any way? As it stands, loading up Raven Shield on a modern system feels like it's about to spin apart at any second.

Edit: Might as well take the plunge and see.
Edit: Works very nicely, though the menus seem freak out somewhat after finishing a mission. Seems to be trying to jump back and forth between full and windowed?

Ach, I bought it without even considering it might be a uplay key. Dammit.

Works well though and you can run it outside of uplay once its downloaded. Neat!

And it's still a really good game.
