I just discovered something lovevly, a fan made version of Red Alert 1. It's the same Red Alert 1 well all know and love but now with Windows Xp,vista and 7 support, it even has LAN and Online Multiplayer features that work good. The free version Westwood released a few years ago is extreamly bugy and has alot of issues since it was never ment to be played on curent day PCs, so alot of people never managed to get it to work but this fan made version works perfectly, all you gotta do is download the game, double click on the file you receivedand thats it, boom you're playing Red Alert 1.
Here's the link to the main site
and here's the download link i suggest you download theOlder Version
