  1. Take it back.
  2. Did you buy them from someone off eBay? They may have given you pirated serials.
  3. Per Wikipedia, when this game came out, people were under the belief that ALL the games would play online. Apparently, this isn't so. You can read the article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CNCTFD

    Now, apparently, there is an unofficial patch out there that will give you online play, but it's not very reliable. The link to it is listed in the wikipedia article I posted.

    Ensure you have applied all patches to the game and see if the unofficial v1.03 patch helps. I'm assuming that's what you were talking about.

    ...*cough* Wikipedia is more unreliable than the patch I'm sure :D and how is it that not all the games work online? is it just a hit or miss thing?
  5. Remember that The First Decade includes all the C&C games all the way back to C&C 95. Most of those early games don't even have online communities any more.

    Thanks for stating this. I don't think I stated it as clearly. But, that is why I was quoting Wikipedia. :hello:

    I understood what you were getting at, that's why I thought I'd clarify your statement a bit.
