Online Multiplayer Games

Anybody playing (or interested in playing) any amiga or non amiga multiplayer game online and which one ?

I'm playing occasinally Warcraft 3 TFT and Pocket Tanks and I would like to know if there are other members of this forum that are playing these games too. I guess it would be more interesting to play against some of you than versus random opponent (which is usually some 15 years old grumpy adolescent )

Also, I think TeeWorlds could be fun


I tried to persuade people on few other forums before this one, but everyone is always "too busy" when it comes to simple online gaming

edit:
Just to mention few more interesting games like Counter Strike 1.6 or Soldat

Does anyone have a list of online-playable Amiga games? I might have my Amiga online soon, so I'd love to play some.

Hmm, so are this amiga games actually fully playable online, and if yes - anybody interested in trying some ?
Bubble Bobble & Indy Heat from HH's site and Battle Chess from Amiga-Online-Games looks most interesting to me

the ACGGBG link are all TCP/IP games playable over a local network or internet.


the amiga-online-games.de link has games that are linkable via ... Modem, Nullmodem, TCP/IP, ParNet, IPX and Email


The games at HH's site all use Kaillira, it is a bit of a hack that allows normal (not linkable) 2 player games to be played over the interent!

It is susceptible to syncronisation problems if ping times are not low enough.

But we did manage to run a little SWOS competition between about 8 of us from all over the world!

yea, well thx for the infos, I already played some SWOS over Kailliera few years ago. I was more kinda wondering if I could find anybody here willing to play any amiga (or other) games again with ... need to take my mind away from poker for a second
But looks like this forum is more for amiga hardware nerds

I would appreciate if you could explain me how could I play Battle Chess against friend online, both running from WinUAE

Since many (or some, depending on how you look at it) amiga games offer null-modem link-up why not try using a serial2tcp/ip redirection drivers. If WinUAE could pickup these virtual serial ports we could play games like XTR Racing over the net

Here are some freeware solutions:

Anyone want to give it a go?
