Just bought the command and conquer special edition game, and want to play against my friend, but don't want the hassle of using their official online area. Are they other servers available for this type of game? or is there a way of setting up a private game?
these is a fantastic program i use to play my friends across the internet witch doesnt use online programs such as gamespy etc. its called hamachi http://www.hamachi.cc/ this simply masks you internet as a local area network so that you can share files and play games using the lan option on your game instead of the internet.
you and your friend should download this in order for it to work and follow the instructions on how to set up the network room from the support area of the site.
