Seems a bit shady if you ask me, any official word from EA?

Yeah, I am also surprised EA don't really promote the games they have made freeware

Torrent is fine me, 6 seeders & 8 peers

its been free for ages as has the original command and conquer and red alert. Still good post because its not widely promoted so not many people know about it

Started it again this morning. MUCH faster now, but still piddling compared to most torrents
But - what do YOU call "fine" ? The d'l speed of 160-190 isn't that good to me, but may be to you. It was about 20-30 yesterday

Unfortunately I get told: "One or more DLL files were missing or damaged. Please reinstall."

Yeah I was getting 160-190, but I leave large downloads going overnight, I have a download limit during the day, remember that torrent has been on the go since 2010 & speeds are going to change @ different times of the day, seeder & peers come & go

Here's the old list of free full PC games - hotukdeals.com/fre…975

The list didn't include gems like Alleycat and Ultima IV though, both of which are freeware. Teh best part about Alleycat is that it runs perfectly fun on modern PCs without needing MoSlo

Thanks for this, one of my favourite games from yesteryear.

Sorry, didn't say thanks. Bad manners ! X)
But still can't get it to install. Keeps saying theres dll's damaged or missing and won't install.
Wonder if it because Im on Windows 8, 64 bit ? Will have a go at that installer.

Wont work on Windows 8 (64bit) even with the installer.

I get the main splash page but if I click on anything (Game, Options etc) nothing happens

All fine for me on Windows 7...just ran in 98/Me compatibility mode and made sure to run as Administrator.

Great thank you

Yeah

I have Windows 7 64 bit but for people trying to get it running on windows 8 try HERE

One of the best C&C games in my opinion, right up there with the likes of RA2. Great stuff.
