I was wondering why don't you just link from the C&C site to one of the major gaming site (fileplanet, 3dgamers etc.) that has the file on their servers? That way you save bandwidth and abandoneers looking for the game on your site will find it and be able to download it (from a server that can better handle the strain) and you won't have to restrict it to registered users.

DOS version vs Windows version. Not the same thing.

I am dying to get this game.

Why don't you have it yet?

Because my employer is an elementary school that blocks strange url's that deal with games.

GRRRRR

ea.com is blocked even.

Is there a place where I can get the iso's that my employer hasn't blocked?

I wish I could download it from here.

Because the recent simultaneous server move and site upgrade has messed up half of the place and we're not finished fixing it yet.

If you ask nicely, someone could upload the ISOs to Rapidshare or a similar place.

We might add the game into our "ISO Cellar" soon. To access that place you need to have 7 days of membership and 20 posts on the forum.

I have both ISOs (NOD & GDI) and the instructions to run them under XP (all downloaded from EA official site).
Now I don't have time to upload them, but the files are still in my Hard Disk.
Let's see what I can do.

I happen to have the ISOs for the DOS version.
Will see when I can upload them.

David86... the whole point of the discussion in the last pages was that we DON'T want the Win95 version that EA released up here since this is a site for DOS games. We want the original DOS version.


Oh, and could the status of game in the Oldwarez list be updated? It's definitely freeware.

I sure wasn't.. I made the DOS rip that was up on Abandonia.. which is quite a lot better than the one you posted there.
That DOS C&C is a version with separated GDI and Nod general.mix files. It's quite a hassle selecting which missions you want to play before even starting the game. On top of that, it's not even patched to the latest version.
In fact, on my system, it doesn't run at all without DOSBox. It immediately crashes with a General Protection Fault, even when I run it with VDMS.
