I bought a Red Alert 2 serial from this site and it activated my account, but I don't know the actual serial number. How can I retrieve it? Thanks!
How do I retrieve my bought serial?

Your serial number will be automatically linked with your nick once you create it in your Game Account. All you need is your nick and supplied password and you're good to go. Launch the game, go to "Internet -> Custom Match" and it'll ask for your login information.
EDIT: Assuming you've downloaded the multiplayer XWIS version from the Downloads link.

I can play on xwis, but I would like my serial number. I should be able to use it anywhere.

Within 24 hours you mostly get one.
Just wait, or do it with the information posted in post # 2. You can reset your serial number at any time in your game account.
Your serial number is the same as "Game Password" showed in your game account.

It's not my password. A serial number for RA2 is a long string of numbers. The auto-generated password is shorter and contains letters. From what I can understand by now, the site is not actually selling me a serial number, just the right to play on XWIS, but the buy button clearly says "Buy serial". Very nice false advertising. Considering there are usually 3-5 players in the lobby playing ridiculous rules like short game and superweapons, I can shove this right up my ass.

cncnet.org requires a serial.
So what you're saying is it's free everywhere else except here? That's a strong argument for taking my money for nothing. /sarcasm
Right now, there are 6 players online on xwis on RA2 and 131 on cncnet. I wonder where else I'd like to play.

Thanks! That's surprisingly friendly of you, considering the moderate raging from my last 2 posts.

The game didn't used to be free at all anywhere. Before or after online play was moved from WOL to XWIS and STs moderation takeover from Westwood / EA. Come to think of it, you weren't able to "purchase" directly from ST/XWIS back in the day regardless as all you had to do was create your nick in-game.
