Gaming

[ja2-logo] Jagged Alliance 2. There are many walkthroughs and FAQs for JA2, but in many cases the information is inaccurate or incomplete. I extracted data tables and information from the game's source code and data files.

 

[incubation-logo] Incubation: Time is Running Out. A complete walkthrough for both campaigns, including the annoying Wilderness set. Also includes some tips, tables with equipment data, and information about the hostile aliens.

 

[max-logo] M.A.X. (Mechanized Assault and Exploration). A complete walkthrough for the campaign, plus general gameplay hints. Includes tables with unit statistics, and a summary of cheat codes.

 

[netrek-game-screen] Netrek. Considered by some to be the first Internet sport, Netrek is a real-time multi-player game that dates back to the late 1980s. I wrote some of the networking code and a few utility programs, which are collected here. I also gathered some information about the history of the game and its predecessors.

 

Of Games and NATs. I wrote this article in the mid-to-late 1990s, when routers with Network Address Translation were still somewhat novel, and broadband was uncommon. It describes the steps required to play games over the Internet through home routers with NAT enabled.
