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

  Windows 32-bit
  Linux 32-bit (Debian package)
  Linux 32-bit (tar.gz)
  MacOS 32-bit (dmg)

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. CGA Dedicated servers should be registered as CGA or CGA (LAN). Only register as a LAN server if you intend to only make it available to your local network. 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 32-bit
  Linux 32-bit (Debian package)
  Linux 32-bit (tar.gz)

The CGA Client and Server have been tested and proven to run on Windows XP+ (32-bit / 64-bit) and Linux (32-bit / 64-bit). With the addition of the TeamSpeak SDK for audio chat, Windows 2000 is no longer supported. For MacOS, the client has only been testeed on OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) so any feedback that could be provided about later versions would be great. When installing the client or server on 64-bit Linux you will need to install the "ia32-libs" package.
