Anyone want to play a game of this steaming pile of crap with me for old times sake?

Find me idling in #zoners on the irc.netgamers.org server.

You know, I had Force Commander, played it once, and never picked it up again. I didn't even know it was playable online.

Yeah Rob, it supports up to 4 players depending on the map. You can play as four, three, or two factions.

Skitzso, ... good luck :)

I actually have two copies of this pos game sitting around. One was my copy then my cousin gave my brother a copy as a birthday gift and he never played it any. Paypal me the mailing expense and I'll be glad to send it to anyone wanting a legal copy.

That was a while ago... Still better that Empire at War! :lol: :P

I agree - it was a good game that, once again, got saddled by bad controls. A real 3D environment, unique gameplay for each side, no traditional resourcing - rather command points (Dawn of War wasn't the first in this), and a great storyline/music SW environment. It felt like a real Star Wars ground RTS... not a mod of AoE like Galactic Battlegrounds nor a 'throw-canon out the window' mix of RTS games.

If only the engine was optimized (for its time) and the mouse controls refined like Homeworld, it would have received a better status.

Alas, the game is no longer with me. I parted ways with it while selling off some other PC games I never really played on ebay. Now I only have Rebellion and Axis & Allies for the PC.

I´ve never ever played Force Comander, because even the demo allways shut down. And I´d just waited so long for that game. :? :cry:

Any chance that there will be a RTS-Game of such a kind?

Step one: Grab a game from the "Total War" genre.
Step two: Search for a "Star Wars" mod.
Step three: Congratulations, you now have a Star Wars RTS that kicks any other Star Wars RTS's arse.

@E: I agree; Galactic Battlegrounds was just a slightly flashier Age of Empires.

You guys are too tough on good 'ol force commander--I played that game for quite a while, and found it fairly original. Rebellion shows that graphics aren't everything...it had a unique story and cool units and stuff...it really was the last RTS that had any different features from the classic build and attack format.

Sounds very interesting! Have you got a link to a working mod?

PCgamemods is supposed to be pretty good for these things, but I think that they've been down for a while.

Ask SOCL about it, he's the Total War expert.
