CGA Client (Required)
To be able to play on the Classic Gaming Arena you will need to download and install the CGA Client.

  Windows 32-bit (Windows 2000)
  Windows 32-bit (Windows XP)
  Windows 32-bit (Windows Vista+)
  Windows 64-bit (Windows Vista+)

NOTE: If you are running Windows 2000/XP we highly recommend you install Legacy Update to bring your machines as up-to-date as possible.

CGA Dedicated Server
If you wish to run a dedicated server we currently have a Windows and Linux version available. It is NOT required for you to run a server. Once you've configured your server and start it, it will register automatically for use. Be sure to open/forward UDP port 9666 (query port) and any other ports you setup for your servers so that other players can access them. Click here if you need help.

  Windows 64-bit
