Hey guys,
just wondering if multiplayer is still a planned Feature for the non-professional version, since I haven't read anything about it lately.
What's more, being able to say Multiplayer is on the way might help me "recruit" some friends to the community.

Janes FC has MP and I think it's smooth for 2 players, considering it's a 90s game. I never tried it, but I believe it is way more competitive and challenging than AI. Kinda thinking how awesome it could be if that is CMANO...

A simple, fleet dual style of combat would be like modern-day chess and battleship combined and running in real time, like this:

Heck, even the 4x4 grand strategy game has real-time design like Stellaris too. I played with my friends before, and the MP game is save-able for another day.

nothing i'm aware of makes it impossible, just a lot of work.

it's definitely worth it long-term though. personally i think the community would be greatly expanded if newbies could be taught directly. Command would make an excellent cooperative game; larger scenarios would be feasible as you can split the setup workload and response across a few guys.

it'd be fun.

Its definitely something we want to add but very unlikely that would be to Command 1.

No! Not yet, I've barely even scratched the surface of CMANO 1!!

And the anticipation of weeks of saving up would kill me!

CMANO 2? My wife hates CMANO 1. CMANO 2 will surely not be good for me since the couch isn't very comfortable.

+1 for multiplayer.

Coop missions will be really cool.

I had a lot of fun with friends playing campaigns on the old falcon 4 allied force. It will be really cool to play a cooperative campaign (maybe on a dedicated server)! As you said, you can split forces between players...

Now that we're at it, do the devs have some kind of vague idea they'd be willing to share with us about how they're going to do CMANO 2? It seems that few wargame developers (Panther Games and Battlefront for example) have opted to update their engines incrementally and charge for major engine updates without making a whole new product that requires new scenarios etc. I don't know anything about game development, but doing CMANO this way could make the most sense since they already have a sound base for future endeavors in CMANO 1.

Hell I got my butt kicked with Janes FC on multiplayer back then! Let´s just say that a storm of missiles coming at your fleet is quite frustrating

COOP Multilayer would bring numerous more individuals to the franchise.

Let's have it for CMANO 2!!! Bring it ON! Hey if the pentagon can have it why not us :)

Good point sir.....don't visit as often as I would like. Was just seeing if there was any work or milestones they might have completed......or hope to complete.

Multiplayer would be a great feature. Dimitris would get his arse kicked. :) Hi Sunburn! I have just ordered myself most of the products and keenly awaiting delivery, after a long hiatus, it is good to be back and to support the great work from you and the team. Hope you are well mate. Say hello to Mike and Ragnar for me, and pass on my thanks to whoever included me in the credits (it was YOU wasn't it, lol).
As you were,
Kind Regards
Paul Nelson

As of today, could two players fight a scenario in editor mode using gentleman’s rules of not peaking at the opponent’s deployment?
They could email the file back and forth after game time increments -say 15 minutes (or more). I play for 15 mins and move the map view to a vacant area and then you open the file and switch to your side and play for 15 mins and resend the file. Might put a premium on planning missions.
Probably not for everyone, or anyone for that matter. Just a thought.

Kevin
