2UP on 2xST's Multiplayer

Postby Marcopolo » Thu Sep 29, 2016 3:36 pm

Having recently pulled my 25yo ST out of the attic old memories are flooding back.....in particular playing Stunt car racer with 2 computers connected together and obviously 2 screens. I'm not even sure how we did it....modem cable?

We're there any other games you could do this with?

thanks,
Marco.

Null modem cable is what you need

Lotus 2, Populous 2 and some others can do this
Atari Falcon Tos 4.04 | 14mb | IDE CF 2GB
Atari STE Tos 1.62 | 4mb | HxC Slim SD 8GB
Atari STE Tos 1.62/2.06 | 4mb | Floppy A-B Mod | IDE SD 4GB

Yes - a null modem cable between the two machines and a supported game. There's probably a list of games somewhere. Personal favourites are:
Stunt Car Racer
Lotus 2
Populous (1 and 2)
TT030: 4MB/16MB + Crazy Dots, Mega"SST" 12, STacy 2, MegaSTE, STE: Desktopper case, IDE interface, UltraSatan (8GB + 512Mb) + HXC floppy emulator. Plus some STE's/STFM's
