Edit: I just realized not everyone here may know what this is. A few years ago I started working on a dedicated server for DOSBox and I put together a website called Classic Gaming Arena to be used as a meeting place to get connected with other players with the use of a client program I also wrote. The site was (for testing purposes) just a single web form and you had to fill in all the criteria for the game you wanted to play and so did the other players. The CGA client is the MIME handler for the file that gets generated and downloaded from the site and it in turn launches DOSBox with all the necessary parameters to connect to the server or person which will host the game. Over the past couple of weeks I have updated the site and the software.
I have updated the Classic Gaming Arena website. Check it out and give it a try. I made the site account based to keep the riff-raff out, but a lot has changed since I had the single web form up. I still have a few things left to finish up, but you can create game rooms and get connected pretty easily now. I have 2 dedicated servers up and running that can be used when creating game rooms. The servers can both have up to 32 connections.
I should have my dedicated server released soon for both Windows and Linux. I have made quite a bit of changes to the original DOSBox server code to make it effective as a dedicated server.
