    Exclamation Westwood Chat issues

    How do you get a Westwood Online account name? I checked the Strike Team website, but couldn't find anything.

    I try to start an online game of Red Alert with my friend, but when i click "Internet" Red Alert says that it ran into an error and nothing happens.

    I run Westwood Chat, but I don't have a username so it never connects, and when I click the "Online Registration Applet" it says it cannot connect to the Westwood Server.

    Hi unclekulikov,
    Don't click the register button. Just enter the username and password you want to use in the login form. This will automatically create the account for you.

    When I start Westwood Chat, it has a box for the username (which is filled with "Guest"). I type "uncle" into that one, and make up a password.

    I hit OK, and then it says:
    Login to XCC failed!
    Strike Team: strike-team.net

    Error: Invalid Password
    Server: Legacy; SID: 1; Nick: Uncle

    Also, separately, when I start Red Alert 95 and click on Multiplayer -> Internet, the game says "An unexpected error has occurred. Please contact Westwood Support."

    So, first off, how can I sign into WWCH successfully?

    Second, is there any way to fix the error inside of Red Alert?

    Try a different nickname in Westwood Chat; this error means "Uncle" is already taken.
