Welcome back, Generals, Commanders and Comrades. We're pleased to unveil some new features and facilities on C&C:Online and Shatabrick!
A brief tour
- You can join C&C:Online and set up your account from the new C&C:Online web site.
- You can manage your account, change your password and settings, create new profiles (nick names) and add buddies directly from the new site.
- You can disable and enable profiles so that you can have more than the current maximum number of profiles.
- You can create hidden profiles to keep yourself anonymous.
- You can jump straight to Shatabrick to look up a player or their stats and jump straight back again.
Get started with C&C:Online
If you're new to C&C:Online, you can make your Revora account and set up your new server login directly from the new C&C:Online site. Hit "Register" at the top of the front page to get started.
Setting up your Revora account
Please note that you can have only one account at Revora, so if you already have an account, you must not create another one and should ignore these steps. If you cannot access your existing account, please make a topic in the C&C:Online Support Forum on Revora.
Fill in the form to create your new Revora account. Your user name is the name you'll use to log into the Revora forums and the C&C:Online site and not the name you'll use to log into your game (where applicable), so you don't have to worry about it being too long for your game. You'll create a separate password to log into your game too (see the next section).
You will need to verify the email address you provide, so make sure it's valid. Once you have verified your account, you can move on to the next step.
Setting up your server account
Your Server Login Name is the name you provide as your EA Account Name when logging into Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath. To login to the other supported games (Generals, Zero Hour and Red Alert 3) you use the email address that you provided when creating your account as your EA Account name or email.
Your Server Password is the password you provide when logging into your game. That password can be completely different to the password you use to log into the forums or C&C:Online site. Please note that this password is stored as plain text, so you should make sure that it's not the same password you use to protect your important data.
Both your Server Login Name and your password can be up to 16 characters long (although they should not be less than 4 characters long) but can contain only letters and numbers (no special characters). You can easily change those details and your email address later on, if you need to.
You can find all about getting online in each game in this guide; C&C:Online User Guide (skip over the part about creating an account at Revora).
In summary, to get online, you will need either the C&C:Online Launcher (if you want to play Tiberium Wars, Kane's Wrath or Red Alert 3) or GenTool by xezon (which has built in by C&C:Online support) if you want to play Generals or Zero Hour. We do not recommend using the launcher to launch Generals or Zero Hour. You can download the latest version of the C&C:Online launcher from the C&C:Online site (hit "Downloads" on the top menu).
You may also need to patch your game to the latest official version. You can find more information on that in that C&C:Online User Guide. The Origin and Steam versions of the games are already patched to the latest official version but you may find that you need to install the C&C Ultimate Collection Launchers by Bibber if you're using the Ultimate Collection.
