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.

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.

A short HOWTO:
You need a Keyboard and Mouse to play.
You will be greeted with two options when launched:
- START C&C RETRO SINGELPLAYER/Online 1vs1 Modem play
- 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.
Good times ahead,
Tank's Divinity for your share :).
I try it later :).
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??)
