Games that can be played with two linked amigas?
« on: October 26, 2010, 06:57:36 AM »
So what games can be placed over a serial link ?

The ones I know of:

Populous 2
Lotus 2
Knights of the sky
Alien Breed 3D
Gloom (?)
Fears


What else?


Is this generally hard to set up or do you just plug the cable in ?
Any software you need or no ?

Vroom.
Dune 2.

I would like to know if those games could be played over serial between a real amiga and an uae machine. I tried once several years ago with a null-modem cable (Lotus 2 i guess) but it did not work.

My top 3 (for what it's worth, which is possibly not a lot :) )

Stunt Car Racer - top game! If you haven't tried it yet - stop reading this and go and play it linked up!
Populous II - feel my firey volcano wrath, evil-doers. Oh, the fun you can have plonking a massive volcano in the other persons main towny area.
Powermonger - Roast mutton anyone? (meeh) Splatter your friends with catapults and wait for the screaming as their army is annihilated with maximum prejudice!

The only one I tried was Firepower, which was pretty easy. Plug in the nullmodem cable and you're ready to go. IIRC, you could also play over telephone line with serial modems (or was that a different game?).

F29 Retaliator?
I used to play It on my PCs, and I'm sure the Amiga version can be played over serial link (null modem cable).

Yeay Cammy & Colani1200.  Firepower.  I used to play that against my housemate in 1990 for hours into the night.  20 Years ago. Poor little squashed soldiers..

I added serial link support
to my opensource game called "2Decide"
which is on aminet.

I also made a serial link only
2 player space top down shooter
which I never uploaded unfortunately.

off topic:
I made a 2-? player local intense tag game
which I also never uploaded.

I made several other games
including Droidwars 1,2,3,4, and 5,
which are on aminet.
Hopelessly addicted to the world\'s best strategy game.

I don't know about Vroom but there is no head-to-head option for Dune 2. :(

Yeah, i made a mistake, i got confused by the remake Dune 2000. Bad luck.

Vroom can do it however, even between Amiga and Atari ST (just like Lotus 2).

Wow... Pretty comprehensive list!
Thought of Stuntcar Racer, Battlechess, F-16 Falcon and some other
olden goodies, they were on the list, together with the "newer" Exodus.
Excellent for future reference! :)
