Quake 3 and I think Unreal Tournament. At least Quake 3 is also compatible with the PC version.

Smurph, I don't think that PSO can actually play over a DC-DC lan, if that is the question.

I think like one maybe. The thing is it is so unlikely for someone to have 2 bbas that it's ridiculous to try to write multiplayer code for it.

Oh. I was thinking of

a couple DC's connected via a router to a PC server.

The thing is for link cable coding you'd pretty much need two DCs with two BBAs and for modem<-> modem coding you'd need two DCs with two coders cables.

There where a few games supported by the DC2DC-cable. F355 Challenge and Virtual On Oratorio Tangram for example. But that is not really the same thing.

No. It's much like the BBA but isn't supported by most games that support the BBA. It also has a little lower connection speed IIRC.

No, he was referring to a LAN (local area network) between multiple DC's, using any sort of networking method, not the Sega Lan Adapter specifically.

Also, don't forget about the VS. Cable. I'm getting one of them for Christmas.

I've been meaning to do something like that.

I actually have two DCs with two Coder's Cables, so Modem<->Modem wouldn't be really out of the question (and either way, that's actually possible. Most people will probably never even see ONE BBA, let alone two). Two modems would be a much more feasible approach.

That's the biggest reason why it's so important for Bluecrab to finish the modem driver. If he does we have viable, easy multi-DC gaming ability
