I'm new to posting here, but have been a member for a while. I'm Grant (known as NeoGrant), an administrator of the community server XWIS.
Just interested to see if everyone knew about the project that has existed since the redirection of Westwood Online to XWIS. Still to this day a lot of the C&C classics have online play and support, but was forgotten about, or was never properly advertised.
XWIS is officially sponsored and supported by EA.
A list of games that we support (and that might bring back some memories):
- Tiberian Dawn & Covert Operations
- Red Alert, Counterstrike & Aftermath
- Tiberian Sun & Firestorm
- Red Alert 2 & Yuri's Revenge
- Dune 2000
- Emperor: Battle for Dune
Just thought it was worth a thread to anyone who didn't know about it and was wanting to play still.
I saw it was more recent, so that's why I was checking if Emperor would work or not. I just went through a guide on how to forward ports specifically for it. Its a darn shame that the co-op wouldn't just work over lan. I had no idea that Emperor had co-op. Anywho, when we tried online, my buddy and I also tried deathmatch, which resulted in the frozen screen also. I figure if both deathmatch and co-op are freezing in the same manner, maybe it could still work after all. Either way, I've been trying to get to the bottom of this. Thanks again for the reply

You and your friend should play some Red Alert 2 . There's some custom campaigns (fan made) for RA2 where you can ally against the computer.

Hi, I just found out that Emperor has co-op. I tried to get on with a friend of mine, We both registered and were able to log in. But when we started the game up, it froze on the connecting screen. We left it for 15 minutes just to be sure, but it was froze, we had to force shut it. I was wondering if its still supported on here. I saw some indication that it was. Would love to know, thanks.
Unfortunatly the co-op died with wol, its not supported by XWIS to my knowledge. Although i believe the game is played on the xwis server or was at one point.
