AuthorTopic: Is it possible to play multiplayer Amiga games remotely (real or emulated)?  (Read 307 times)

At work we've just got a lunchtime club together playing Worms DC (originally on my A1200 and then on RetroPi) but the office is now closed due to Covid-19.

We're all remote working and looking for ideas to keep team morale up and so I'd like to know if it's possible to play any multiplayer Amiga Games (mainly Worms) remotely either by remote connections to a session hosted on my Pi or elsewhere? Ideally the solution requires no software install because we'll all be using our locked-down work laptops.

I found an HTML5 re-implementation of Worms Armageddon but the multiplayer server is offline. I know there are lots of other options for other online games but I wanted to explore this one a little further.

Thanks.

I believe this requires a download and if AndyFC's laptops are locked down in the same way as mine, he will not (easily) be able to install the AmigaLive package :(

Thanks very much for the link. I downloaded and tried it today and, even though it doesn't install anything, the executable is blocked :-(

I'm going install it on my home PC though...  :)
