For quite a while, I've wanted to make a multiplayer event for forum members and followers of CNCNZ.com where we'd just chill and play some fun matches together without any competitive pressure unless agreed upon otherwise. And so, our first Game Night will take place on Saturday, 15 July, at 19:00 GMT, in Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge via CnCNet. Further information is available here. In other news, we have started our very own Discord server, which channels for both our regular news feed and discussions, and a channel intended for game nights, along with voice channels.
I wanted to write something to have my final goodbye and officially sign off as the webmaster, founder and lead administrator of CNCNZ.com. So I decided to write an article addressing stuff such as the closure announcement, change of ownership and my final thoughts. It is short, to the point and hopefully it answers everyone's questions. You can read the entire article right here. And with that I'm done. As I wrote just under a month ago. It has been an honor and privilege to serve as webmaster of this site but now its time to step aside.
Long live Command & Conquer!
Long live CNCNZ.com!

Thankfully, CNCNZ.com is alive and well, and we can keep the site running, despite Sonic's departure. However, when the site was about to go offline a few days ago, many of our devoted followers offered their help. As such, I'd like to mention that one way you can help is by donating to help cover our server costs. Thankfully, the costs are fairly low, at about $210 per year.
Thankfully, these costs aren't too high, but I do have to pay them out of pocket, and if you want to help, that would be great.
If you'd like to donate, visit our donate page. Oh, and don't worry, this will be the only time I ask for money. I'm mostly doing this because some of you offered.
Otherwise, you can support the site by joining us in our forums and helping to keep our community active. Thanks to everyone for their kind support, no matter how little. Even stopping by for a post or two means a lot to us.
The CNCNZ.com Service Depot, our section of Technical Support & Help Guides, has been expanded! With the tendency of newer operating systems to break older games and the ever-rising need for manual workarounds, we now offer guides to install every Command & Conquer game for the PC, from the venerable Command & Conquer for the DOS to C&C 4: Tiberian Twilight, across different releases where applicable (retail, The First Decade, Steam, Origin...), as well as full guides for The First Decade and The Ultimate Collection. But that's not all: we've also included guides on how to run mods for Tiberium Wars, Kane's Wrath and Red Alert 3 for those trying them out for the first time (or just need a refresher), as well as how to install DirectX 9.0c and bypass the blocking of the SafeDisc driver.
If you think the guides are insufficiently explained, or if you've found a more efficient way of getting the games to run, send a message to Plokite_Wolf or Zee Hypnotist. It's time to play the game(s), commanders, and now you have the means of doing so!
