I just got the Command and Conquer game (the first one), it runs in DOS and from what I have read it works fine in ECS. I have a problem though. The CD sees the CD...I can see all the files...and even move the CD's files to the HD...but when I try and install the game it says It cant find the CD...I had this with one other DOS game. All other games work fine via the CD...any ideas?

Can you install from the location where you copied the files to on your hard drive? I know that I was able to do this with Avarice so that I did not have to put the CD into the computer to play the game.

I don't remember exatly how to play RA under OS2 but I think you have to go to the directory where the EXE file is and then type :

ra.exe -cd x:

where ra.exe is the file for the dos version (I'm not sure for the name) and x: your CD-ROM drive.

If it doesn't work write back and I'll check exactly how it goes.

Good luck.

I believe your *Red Alert* only in the subject may confuse some people ...
... sounds somewhat dangerous !?

Checking the contents shows that is aout a game ;-(

Absolutely not high alert nor *Red Alert* ;-((

Well, then again it's posted within the Index / OS/2 - General / Games section in the forum. This might not show up on the main index page; adding this to the subjects would just take up too much space.
