I uploaded a couple of videos of 2 Adam games being played over a 300 baud AdamLink
modem connection.

Modem Tank can be played by 2 players without a modem or by 2,3, or 4 players using
a modem. There were two of us playing in the video each controlling 2 tanks.

The Modem Chess video has realistic sounding speech near the end of the video when
the computer says "check mate".

Great videos... as has come to be expected from you!

 

Chris Braymen was the author of these two games and he also developed and released the Midi-Mite Interface for the ADAM along with numerous software titles for use with it. He also worked in the videogame industry back in the 90s, IIRC mainly developing music and sound effects for games.

 

I'm pretty sure the voice you hear saying "checkmate" is his wife, ? Elizabeth ? and was probably sampled using the Dynomite Sound Digitizer cartridge by Trisyd Video Games.

Modem Tank was a super awesome incredibly fun game! At the time at least.

 

As you can see by my profile picture, modem tank is one of my favorites.

 

What a pleasure it was to watch your video. Brought back great memories.

 

I wish I could find someone with an Adam, and modem, to play with?

 

Anyone?
???
