Play Armada's Campaign Online Soon Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Update ID

Four months after his last development which brought Proving Grounds to the internet, HCl has pulled off yet another miracle. He has managed to get Armada's NetBIOS multiplayer support working through DosBox. The result is that for the first time, Armada's strategic campaign mode is playable online! There are still a few bugs to squash, but hopefully there will be a fully playable release soon.

Regarding the gameplay improvements, to make the game more tolerant to lag... well, there may not be much that can be done, as the game insists on synchronizing everything. However, IPX code was slightly changed in DosBox CVS, which may or may not help things slightly in the end. I am still looking into those synchronization errors we encountered during testing a while back, these i might be able to solve.

Slightly off-topic news regarding NetBIOS coding: although my priority is Armada first and foremost, i think i am close to running Syndicate: American Revolt (a few more NetBIOS functions need coding). These may be good news to other retro gamers out there who look forward to challenge each other in this classic Bullfrog game :-)
