6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
David Janik-Jones sent IMG an intriguing announcement yesterday afternoon of a new cross-platform matching service called Combat Ranger for the popular 3D war strategy Combat Mission. The program will run on Mac OS X, Mac OS 8.5, and Windows and will have full chat and game matching features.
Here's a description of the $5 shareware title:
Combat Ranger for Combat Mission is a fully cross-platform program that gives PC and Mac Combat Mission players a single place to gather in real-time. Combat Ranger provides a live 24/7 online forum to meet and arrange two-player TCP/IP or PBEM games, gives players the ability to email their PBEM files from within the application, chat about Combat Mission and the upcoming Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin, and provides an extensive list of where to find scenarios and mods for Combat Mission.While Combat Ranger isn't officially endorsed by Combat Mission creator Battlefront, the authors are working to strengthen ties to the company. No official release date is set, but the application should be available "very, very soon," according to the web site FAQ.
