 There is also a Full HD patch in circulation,​ where the game is started with the switch ''​-1600'',​ which uses the resolution 1920x1080, if you delete the file ''​data\gcvideo.dat''​ before. Advantage: No more distorted 4:3 images and more overview. Disadvantage:​ Less accurate clicking and especially the graphical controls are even smaller. This also applies to the map overview, both in the small and in the enlarged view. There is also a Full HD patch in circulation,​ where the game is started with the switch ''​-1600'',​ which uses the resolution 1920x1080, if you delete the file ''​data\gcvideo.dat''​ before.

-For Internet games, ports 15001, 15101, 15200, 20000-21000,​ and 25000-25499 (TCP + UDP) should be enabled. However, this is relatively meaningless,​ because there are no dedicated servers anymore, because the [[World Opponent Network|WON]] servers have been shut down in the meantime. There is also a dedicated server on the Internet, but it would also report to the WON servers ​that no longer exist. So you can forget ​it. Direct IP input is not possible, so this Decicated has relatively little sense. There is, however the possibility,​ to use [[GameRanger]] so start games over the Internet. But this has not been tested yet. Allegedly GC is played on the Internet relatively active (for the age of the game).+For Internet games, ports 15001, 15101, 15200, 20000-21000,​ and 25000-25499 (TCP + UDP) should be enabled.
