Put your money where your game is, Commander!

We will always keep CnCNet free to play and most of the source available to anyone interested. Until lately, running CnCNet's site and server cost some money. We also host our sister site Command & Conquer Communications Center on the same server.

How are the donations used? Currently, they are general donations for the projects as the main servers are sponsored by NodeDeploy and provided for us free of charge. However, new official tunnel servers from around the world for CnCNet 5 cost something and that is where we are currently investing when community hosted tunnels are not available. You can also help by hosting a tunnel for people near you!

Note: if you want to be named in the top donators list, make your nickname clear in the donation message or drop a line here to claim your prize!

CnCNet 5 released!

TL:DR version: CnCNet 5 is awesome! Took a long time to make and test! TS and RA2 not supported yet! Download here!

After over a year of work and testing CnCNet 5 has finally been deemed stable enough for an official release!

Compared to CnCNet 4, CnCNet 5 is coded from scratch and takes advantage of the online systems Westwood implemented into the games. CnCNet 5 has a external lobby system which gets rid of the old and buggy LAN lobby. No more games disappearing or glitches related to kicking people from the game. You can also say good bye to lag caused by the LAN netcode as previously hinted to CnCNet 5 makes use of the WOL netcode making games go smooth.

CnCNet 5 works perfectly despite closed ports due to the improved tunnellin...
