I vote for sticky - this would be a great list to not get buried.

"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."

Agreed, that would have been great!
 
There should have been more linked games on the Amiga.
I had Twin Tornado on the C64, even that could could do quite nice linked play.

Back in the day, we had hooked up Stuntcar Racer and Populous 2 between the Amiga 500 and the Atari Mega STe.

The funny thing was, on our (yes it was original!) version of Populous 2 for the Atari ST, you could hold down the F9 key and it would just crank up your mana.

So when we played it multiplayer, my brother was on the Amiga and was claiming that I was using this cheat on him because I totally kicked his butt.

Anyhow, I thought it was rather cool that you could network two different platforms together back in the day.

It'd be interesting to get a list of games that would work this way between the Atari and Amiga, then perhaps you could run WinUAE and Hatari side by side on a widescreen display and get some multiplayer fun in.  Pretty sure under Windows you can't run two different copies of WinUAE or Hatari, so you'd kind of need to run both at once, right?

I'm just thinking Stuntcar Racer would be extremely awesome with 4 people (more would just make it ridiculously hard!)

The expansion disk for the original, American Revolt, supposedly had multiplayer, but only the PC version.

Hi Guys,

Linking two A1200's and playing Lotus II was straight forward as just chose LINK and we did the same for Super Skidmarks :)

For BattleChess we simply choose 'Modem plays red' on one A1200 and 'Modem plays blue' on the other and that works fine too :)

But we can't get see any option to link in Micro Machines :confused:

Can anyone give any instructions please??

I had Mac warcraft2 running under shapeshifter on my A4K and connected to a PC with the PC version, that was cool. it came on a hybrid mac/pc CDRom.
