I've still got my original Virgin Interactive/Westwood Studios CDs for C&C:RA.

Tempted to get this, just for newer compatability, though.

Has the resolution been updated at all from the original?

if you run it under compatability mode for wndows xp with 256k colour enabled then you should be OK. my copy from the first decade box works perfectly using this method under Vista Home premium x64

Noice!

Just as well I have still have the collectors edition of RA inlc. RA music CD, shirt and poster. There's something you can't DL over the intertubes!

Anyone check out the RA3 teaser trailer on the linked site? Stars and babes galore. Looks epic, can't wait!

Wasn't it RA that was given away for free, last year? Or earlier this year? I remember Internode hosting the images, too.

C&C was given away free earlier in the year, IIRC.

Thanks for the heads up, might grab this tonight.

What is the max res of this game? Would it be impossible to play on my 22" monitor.
