Re: "Basic Warfare" FreeBasic Multiplayer RTS Game

The "Are you sure you want to quit?" message may be annoying but it is a safeguard to keep you from accidentally actually quitting when you press esc. Yes, that is a good thing for me :-) The command interface is designed after the classic game "Battlezone 1 1998". For those who...
