As far as I know, there is no skirmish mode availble in C&C, so it can't be unlocked or added... But I'm not entirly sure on this one

there are some good non virus infected rom sites out there but they are hard to find under the pile of poo that wil invariabley pop up if you search on google. i know a couple that i use but we are not allowed to post rom links. (besides the esa would probably click on em) however if you want a good c64 emulator i recomend v.i.c.e however if you are a fan of the far supirior speccy then it has to be valadimir kladovs emu z or if you have money in your pocketspectaculator you do get 30 days for free though. on the amiga side theres a whole load of versions of win uae here i found this one tricky to set up though, and as i only wanted to play moonstone i couldent be bothered with it. good luck on reliving the classics man.

thank you all for your help ... to answer some of the questions asked of me my fav kinda games i like to play r ither stratergy games where u build ur base build ur army smash the enemy while at the same time defending ur own base from attacks i also enjoy rpg games like d&d and platforms like revanent .... most of the games i have downloaded from here r good but not the best games i have played i think a good game that should be added to this site is alpha centrui and its expansion pack .... altho boring and for some one like my self who is used to fast pased real time games it can be enjoyable for those that enjoy slow games with a small amount of poitics in it ... any way yes if any one can mention some good games for download in the stratergy side of things that r challanging for me. btw i think its time that abanonina took cruisader no remores and no regreat down and put it back up for free down load ... i have asked round all my local computer games shops and they all say both games have been disconitnued ... i have both games for ps1 but would love to be able to relive them on pc .... also too if i may .... i would like to see c&c red alert and its expansion pack up on this site for download along with c&c's expansion pack as both games r no longer sold on the market we should be able to down load them with out the esa shuting this site down .... im thinking of possibly startin my own site and letting ppl that join the site submit their own games for other to download ... i beleave in free trade ... and bartering .. e.g if i say was to put ra2 up on the site and some onewanted it they would tell me a list of games they had and if they had one i wanted will we would trade i think that would be ok considering that these multi nationl coprations would make in one hour what they loose in a second ... well thats all from me my post is getin long enough as it is and im just rambling on now ( has smoked to much pot) so yea once again thnx for the posts

This doesn't mean we can have them here, there is also something like copyright protection, and we would like to respect this. If we obtain permissions again from the copyright owners, these games might reappear. Otherwise, they'll hire some really nasty people (also known as lawyers) to shut down the site as a whole and then sue us all to hell and back - a couple of times, actually. Don't you think it's better to not have a few games then not have the whole site?

Good joke. These games are still protected, and some time ago ESA was sending shutdown threats to HOTU for hosting a game from 1986, that is definitely not sold for waaay over a decade. Being not sold has nothing to do with the copyright protection.

You know, I really think you ought to go check the difference between warez and abandonware. Such a site would get shut down pronto, and a lot of angry ESA-members would then come for your head.
Corporations love to bitch about every cent they lose to piracy.

It sucks playing games meant for consoles on computers though.......tried guerilla war....I remember that wuz on the old 8-bit nes....it looks bad.....and controls even worse with the num pad. oh well...good attempt.....gotta love the old skool
