Roll eyes (sarcastic) High speed serial port expansions

will there be any benefits when using 2 A1200-s with high speed serial port interfaces for serial play in games like AB3D, AB3D2, Gloom, Doom, Extreme Racing etc? What about using one with graphics tablet?

I'm not sure if you can select what serial port/device to use. Are most games not written to just support the internal serial port for null modem play?

Yes, the high speed serial ports are only useful in os friendly applications.

Is there not a piece of software to allow serial games to run off say TCP/IP?
