Forget Splatoon! Now I want to upgrade my CPC & play Battleships online. It genuinely looks like it would be great fun with the messaging window open for real time discussion. You can't chat in Splatoon anyway! :)

@Prodatron: This is release 3.0. beta. You are almost reaching version 3.1., which should be the first to hit the masses on the market (as it did for Windows :D). And you almost have 3.11 for work groups :D.

Incredible, man. Excelent job :)

Which hardware do you use for network access? Where can it be bought?

Just in time, I made it yesterday to set up SymbOS 2.1 properly on my 664/X-MEM/X-MASS hardware - works very good so far. *thumbs up*

I plan on upgrading my main symbos setup to v3 tonight. Bring on the Ethernet card, either standalone or minibooster add-on.
