View Full Version : What is going on with CnC forums downloads section?

Hi, I wanted to play the original CnC, and I remembered that it was released for free, so i did a quick google search. Surprisingly there were NOT many options. Anyways, I came across cncforums.com to THIS PAGE (http://www.cncworld.org/?page=features/tutorials/tdfree). I clicked on the "download here" link, and it took me to a page with three iso files to download, the GDI disk, the NOD disk, and a 3rd one. I first tried clicking on the GDI one, and it didn't download, think the link was broken, or the file is not hosted anymore. Same thing with the NOD disk, while the 3rd one was ok, I didn't download it.

So I remembered that a while ago, I had created an accout here. I logged in to ask if anyone knows where I can download a free working copy of this game? I've seen several sites say you can download it and other free CnC games @ http://www.commandandconquer.com/classic but when I go there, I don't see anything about downloads.

Another problem... AFTER (but not before) logging in, If i try and click on the "downloads" link (for cncforums.com) to go to the downloads section, it says "HiGhGuY, you do not have permission to access this page." WTF... so as an unregistered guest, I can view the downloads section, but after logging in, I can't?

Can somebody Please help me, find the first CnC to download free, and figure out why I can't enter the downloads section. I would really appreciate it, thanks.

It looks like the files have been moved by Fileshack, I'll get the links updated tonight.

I've updated the links but the error's still occurring, I don't know why. But if you copy the link from the error into your browser the files can be downloaded.

My installation guides can be found at http://www.cncworld.org/?page=features/tutorials/index

Thanks. However, I'm still having problems with the page in general. I can't even access the "downloads" section at all. This is the message I get:

HiGhGuY, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

oh yeah... I checked out your installation guide. the Vista and XP directions look to be the same unless I missed something (just quickly skimmed through them) Will the same/vista directions work on windows 7 as well? (32bit version)
