Description of Global Conquest

From Brian Moriarty's tribute to Dani Bunten:

"Command HQ's successor, 1992’s Global Conquest, was the first four-player network game released by a major publisher. Its absorbing mix of real-time action and resource development was the design prototype for an entire generation of combat simulations, including Dune II, Warcraftand Command and Conquer."

The game would sadly turn out to be Dani Bunten's last game she designed, before moving on to Mpath to create multiplayer-only games.

What a great game. One of my favorites of all time. It has a fair amount of strategy and random maps with a lot of options to tweak things to the way you want them. The game also has some very funny events that can happen to you. I spent many, any hours playing this when it came out and I still play it pretty regularly.

Be sure use the DOSBox fix download to make it work in DOSBox. If you don't, the number of turns you can play will be very limited.

Saving the game extends the life.

Additional clerification RE my previous post: Game length will display as set, (I've tried 120 turns and infinite turns) while the game is setting up. As soon as you click to start game you can look at "game type" and it will show game length as 30 turns. Or you can play and it will announce a winner at 30 turns. At least it's twice as long as the 15 turn limit without the "fix" installed. But 30 is still too short.

Game duration seems to set to 30 turns no matter what the duration set at start. Is there a way to fix that?

What a fantastic game! To my knowledge, this is the first four-player multiplayer game for the PC. Dan(i) Bunten redefined what multiplayer meant. The wonders of DOSBOX and serial port emulation mean that you can now play this game multiplayer over the internet.

For those that have had troubles getting it to run properly in DOSBOX, there is now a fix posted here. It fixes the problem DOSBOX had with not properly emulating file attributes for the game's rudimentary copy protection.

Using DOS Box, but can't get it to launch. Any tips from anyone?

why doesn't global conquest download work? it directs me to the M.U.L.E. page instead. I remember this game fondly and would love to play it again!

Thank you!

need to input a word from the manual to allow install. where can I find the manual?

Any other hints on installing this game? The real game/manual are at my parents house...

Designed by the legendary Dani Bunten of M.U.L.E. fame, this was one of the first tactical games ever that allowed network play. I still fondly remember doing so and being amazed. Of course titles such as this one do not age too well, but I'd still recommend giving it a try and experiencing a milestone for yourself
