    I own one copy of C.A.C.G and wish to play my brother using a Windows Xp and a new vista. I am wondering how i can do this without playing online. And do i need to buy another disk?

    Thanks alot

    Hi there joedog

    Ah yes, I'm a huge fan of Command and Conquer Generals as well!

    To play multiplayer against him, you have 3 options.

    1) Connect a cable from your computer and his to a hub or router.
    2) Connect to each others' computers using a PC to PC cable.
    3) Use a wireless connection.

    Unfortunately, you will have to buy separate copies of the game in order to play as the serial keys need to be different. If I've forgotten to mention any other possible methods, I'm sure the others on here will fill the blanks ....

    Hope this helps

    There are ways to do it but those are illegal and I don't think I have permission to post them here.

    Yes hockeydude is absolutely right. I should have specified that the only LEGAL way to play the game is to have 2 CDs and thus 2 purchased CD keys.
