Xtreme Racing on 2 Amigas was great! If i remember correctly 6 players could race against each other. So much better than Mario Kart :D

Stunt Car Racer (with turbo-mode, lets say with 030/50) is a perfect example of linkup game.

And Super Skidmarks, we've played that a lot last years on meetings with simultaneous 8 players! You can split display between two Amigas and have 4 players on each computer.

In old times I used to like Knights of the Sky, Lotus and Armour Geddon as linkup game too.

Oh and if you have beefed up Amiga capable to hires gfx fast enough, Napalm is just great in two player mode!

Cammy, I can't believe you missed the best one of all, and the one that can -only- be played using linked Amigas:

VR Slingshot!

Used to be a favorite at our user group meetings.

Perhaps Dogfight should be revised. I remember people claiming they played it with serial links, but they might have mixed memories with the PC version. Taking a quik peek at mag reviews I've found some of them stated the Amiga version lacked that option. Can anyone confirm?

Does anyone know if there's a way to fake a null modem connection between two WinUAE "Amigas" over the internet?

At least you can connect WinUAE and real amiga with null modem.

Imagine if Syndicate had a multiplayer option. Man I would have loved that. Perhaps maps where both sides need to complete the same, or complementary objectives. For example they both may need to snatch person X, or one snatch them, the other assassinate. The overall winner would be the side that completed the most missions or whatever.

Sorry, I was not serious - even about it being the 'best'. It was probably the most unusual, though, and why it people enjoyed messing around with it. It was strictly 2 machine/players, and both machines had to have 3D viewing hardware, X-Specs and a 15KHz CRT monitor or stereoscopic HMD, otherwise it was useless. I still have all that junk, but we don't seem to have meetings anymore, and you can't play with yourself.


Oops: What is it, since most people have never seen it? good point.
Looks like there is little info on the web, except that it involved "Simulation of motion via Newtonian physics. Airflow accurately simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics Grid techniques."  It was a space battle simulation between two fighters that required a bit of getting used to - a bit of thrust and you would travel and travel. I forgot that it also required analog joysticks! Getting the machines, the HMD and shutter glasses, and monitors, and the analog joystick adapters set up to play was quite a job. The author is still around, looks like took the Amiga references off his website, but added babes (amigas?) in skimpy shirts:

This is a great list thanks Cammy :)

We're having lots of fun playing some of these games. So far we've linked an A1200 Desktop and an A1200 Tower and tried Lotus II and Super Skidmarks :pint:
