Get RA95 with the TCP/IP patch which we all used and worked like a dream, granted I think we had one lost sync issue that seems to plague all c&c games lol

Yup, you can even colour correct the videos if you want:

Change wallpaper to solid colour black and open the 'screen resolution' dialogue, then launch the game.

Fixes all the crazy bright colours in old games :)

I've had no end of trouble with RA on modern machines, got it perfect on some machines, others ran at the speed of light, some ran the game like a dog.

Yeah, those did not like being run on LAN together.

Either way I'll be installing it for the LAN, never turn down the hope of some RA action!
