Welcome to the first-ever CNCNZ.com Game Night!
For the longest while, I've wanted to make a multiplayer event for our forum members and followers, one where we'd just have fun with a chosen game or mod, without worrying of getting destroyed from higher-skilled players if we didn't want it so. So here's our chance of chilling out and playing C&C together. Free-for-all, 1v1, 2v2, 5v2, prettiest base contest, you name it, we can do it spontaneously.
For the first night, we've decided to go with Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge , since it's apparently among the highest-regarded C&C games. If you already haven't done so, make sure your copy is properly installed and patched according to our new guide. The session will take place on CnCNet, so make sure you've downloaded the YR client from their website as well. Don't worry if you were unable to re-enable SafeDisc or your Ultimate Collection version was broken by the recent Origin update, the CnCNet YR client will run skirmishes and multiplayer regardless.
There are (a) few rules, which will remain the same for all game nights:
No cheating, intentional disconnects or map hacking (includes using one-sided maps where one player/team gets unfair advantages) Don't use exploits intentionally (especially in Tiberium Wars/Kane's Wrath) Treat everyone with respect and don't misbehave Don't teamkill We will make use of our new Discord server, which has a special text channel and four voice channels for the game nights. Hop in through this link: https://discord.gg/4PN3HEa
The chosen date and time will be Saturday, 15 July 2017, at 19:00 GMT. You can use a time zone converter to determine what that will be in your time zone.
If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to post them below. We hope to see as many of you as possible during the game night!
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!
