Hello All,

I've been playing about with the modem options in Dosbox and a game named Star Control 3 but am having difficulty making it work. It looks like it's the game that's not working correctly rather than Dosbox but I'd like a second option. I've recorded a video below.


The IPX network mode works fine but due to the nature of the game is unplayable over the internet even at low latencies (<30ms) and wondered if they might have coded the networking differently for the modem mode which I would expect to have a higher natural latancy than a LAN.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
