    Was the actual software and games for GCP service ever found? Programs or source code? I'd love to be able to play these games with Fujinet or even via local area networking. These games had to deal with the norm of 300 baud back in the day, so I'd think it wouldn't be hard to get them working, even via null-modem networking between Atari's.

    So far as I know, the only program available is "Lords of Space," Matt. Here are some additional links to go-with:

    I re-read the thread again, and you're right. I went ahead and grabbed the ZIP for my archives, as I really thought it was just the LoD game. And this after I swear I read the part about the label being wrong at AtariMania, mind you! I must be losing another DRAM up in my head or something... :confused:

    It happens to us all from time to time. I've started re-reading posts more than once, and pondering before I reply. It can be as simple as misreading a 'can't' for a 'can' or vice versa an you misunderstand completely, on top of short-term memory loss of what you just read.

    Just having the software is a huge leap in being able to use it, it could be De-assembled and made to work with Fujinet or SIO/PIA LAN, eventually, etc. Then we could all experience this piece of history that was years ahead of it's time.
