I would like some instructions on where I can play my C&C Red Alert 2. I have my original game with both Allied and Soviet disks, with serial key. I miss the game and would love to get back into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

go to www.xwis.net/control_panel and register the serial number... create a nick and go online... think thats about all there is to it.

Log into XWIS Control Panel, add a RA2 serial and create a nick.
Start the game as administrator.
Click Internet.
Click Custom Match.
Enter XWIS nick and password.
Enjoy!

Where do I go to start a game as an administrator? Do I do all this through the XWIS interface, or do I start up my Red Alert @ as per normal and try to play online the conventional way. I tried what you had said at the XWIS interface and created a nick.
My only options are as follows: Home | Maps RA2 | Maps YR | Logout
Control Panel | Forums | Support | XCC Game Spy
Tiberian Sun | Red Alert 2 | Yuri's Revenge | Renegade

I agree with bsharp. it logs into the 'allied command' section, but down at the bottom where chat messages appear there's a message that says something like 'error: used nick RA2 and Yuri's revenge' and something about logging out. then it kicks me out back to the internet menu.

on a side note, i'd like to be able to play during chrismas break. how OFTEN are large matches held?

go to www.xwis.net/control_panel to register your serial number and make a nickname

i don't understand the second question about large matches.

I did. wich makes me think of several possibilities:

is there a problem with me using the old two-disk set that i bought a long time ago or do i have to download a different version of RA2?

or do i just have register with a more origional nick?

Is my fire wall blocking the internet?

in case you were wondering, the error message looks like this:"
Strike Team: strike-team.net

Error: invalid password or nick taken already
Server: Red Alert & Yuris Revenge SID: 270520;Nick: fanOfRA2

You've joined channel USA Command"

then a message pops up "you've been disconnected from the server"
and it kicks me back to the internet menu
by big games i mean 4v4

Missing a bracket at the end, although it shouldn't do that.

Try registering with a different nick. Make sure the serial isn't banned.

Idk if RA2 supports 4v4. Pretty sure Yuri's does though. 

Would be easier if you all made your own topics.

Same problem, empty lobby, I registered my serial and nickname and use the correct provided password. I don't get disconnected I stay connected.. Tried opening all ports as suggested in another topic.. Still nothing but an empty lobby..

I had the same problem and fixed it here's how:

Just go back to the control panel and create a new nick with the same serial code. i had the same problem when my nick was "fanOfRA2" so i changed it to "dhw233" and I've played at least a dozen matches online since and it works okay. it gives you the same error if your password is wrong, btw.

thanks to everyone else who helped me
