Bad news...Digital PC game storefront Games Republic has announced that they will be shutting down. Unfortunately, it seems that Games Republic was not able to draw in the crowd it wished. According to an e-mail we received today from 11 Bit Studios, the decision to shut down Games Republic happened on December 8th:
On Thursday, December 8, it was decided by Games Republic management and 11 bit studios board to shut down GamesRepublic.com with the end of the year. Today we’ll be disabling the possibility to purchase games in our store. Users will be able log in to their accounts to download their games and activation codes till the end of January, and will be informed about this in a special message.
If you visit Games Republic’s storefront then all you will see is a message informing you that Games Republic is shutting down. You can no longer purchase games from their store. The message states that you will have until January 31st, 2017 to download your games before the service is taken offline entirely.
If you purchased any games from Game Republic and want to hang onto them, now would be the time to make some room and download them. I will replace the GamesRepublic links as well in Porting Kit coming months.

Here a quick heads up for first and finally the real Uplay login fix. It was already promised in the release of last Friday, but it didn't work then. Now we evaluated the bug and implanted the fix properly. So, trash the wrappers for the ones who had the login issue: Like Anno 2070 and many others... and reinstall it from the Porting Kit.
Secondly I updated the Dune 2000 Wrapper because the download link was broken. So the Dune 2000 fans can play this game in all its glory again :)
I heard that Red Alert had some regular crashes, so I looked into it and was able to make it far more stable. Experienced no crashes yet at the moment (played 3 levels) for testing. Also it seemed that CNCnet had an update and needed an update for .net2.0 as well. Those two fixes combined made this update.
I also updated the Cross-tie for Crossover with automatic download and install of Red Alert. So that Crosstie will have exact same features as the Porting Kit has.
