Does seem a bit daft not to have it working with an Amiga but still sounds like a cool idea!

If someone gives these games magically TCP/IP support (from within the game that is) and makes them OS friendly then, sure, you can play them on 68k hardware. Otherwise this is an awesome way to play Amiga games (and other platforms) with other people online!

Many links are reserved to our VIP members (you just have to introduce yourself in order to enable your access).
If you have just registered an account, you can only join the current gaming networks (Dyna Blaster, The Chaos Engine, Lotus...) :)
Next time, before complaining, please take the time to read:
-> the concept (all you need to know about this project)
-> the welcome PM (it's a red flashing icon, you can't miss it)
-> the disclaimer
Thanks.
