Welcome back, Commander

Welcome back after 2 years, 5 months and 15 days. 🙂

If you like thOpenRA Logoe old style Westwood games and want to play those on a modern PC, try OpenRA.

OpenRA is a Libre/Free Real Time Strategy project that recreates the classic Command & Conquer titles.

We include recreations of C&C (Tiberian Dawn), C&C: Red Alert, and Dune 2000. These are not intended to be perfect copies, but instead combine the classic gameplay of the originals with modern improvements such as unit veterancy and the fog of war.

OpenRA’s primary focus is cross-platform multiplayer between Windows, OS X, and Linux; however, we include a number of single-player missions, and also support skirmish games against AI bots.

Red Alert

Around October Red Alert 3 will be released. Until that there is plenty of time to play the original Red Alert, which was released in 1996!

This might be old news to the real fans and die-hards, but for others this might be handy. To play Red Alert online you needed to through a lot of settings. That has been made a bit easier by following this guide on strike-team.net. It also works for Red Alert 2, and Renegade.

Have fun!
