Command & Conquer Retro MOD Recalbox with Networking! (Dosbox)



  • I've made a MOD for Command and Conquer 1 DOS version. It uses a preconfigured Dosbox for Windows, Linux and Armv7. You can also try it in your Browser.
    C&C Retro Website:

    I tried it with my RPi3+Recalbox and it is very playable without overclocking. IPX Multiplayer Networking is also working. :) I've tested it with my main Linux PC (Lubuntu 18.04) and RPi3. (crossplay should work with Windows, Linux and RPi)

    I made a Recalbox "CNCRetro_r03.pc" folder. Unzip "CNCRetro_r03_Recalbox.zip" to your "roms/dos" folder.
    C&C Retro r03 Recalbox download:

    A short HOWTO:
    You need a Keyboard and Mouse to play.
    You will be greeted with two options when launched:

    1. START C&C RETRO SINGELPLAYER/Online 1vs1 Modem play
    2. START WITH 4 PLAYER Online CLIENT/SERVER

    1 --> select when you only play Singleplayer (Modem play DOES NOT WORK)
    2 --> CLIENT/SERVER architecture - on the first machine START THE DEDICATED SERVER and then the CLIENTS can connect to the SERVER IP.
    Then go to "Multiplayer Game" --> "Network" and make a NEW Game. You MUST make a NEW Game or other Players cannot see or JOIN you.
    That's it.

    Good times ahead,

    Seems great :) Thank you for sharing. We were asking ourselves if we could embed the game in recalbox, but it seems it has copyrighted content, isn't it ?



  • The first 3 Command & Conquer titles are "Freeware". Tiberian Dawn, Red Alert 1 and Tiberian Sun were released to the public for free with no licence to them (GPL3, MIT...).
    I'm not sure under which license CNC Retro would be. (Public Domain??)
