Not exactly. Earth-Series is developed in Poland and only the publisher was from Germany...
The creative guidance comes from Germany. Just like SAP has about 60-90% of its software done in Asia, but the guidance is German. If you watch the videos on the earth2160.com site you can see that Zuxxez drives the direction.

gee, Germans are quite well represented here. Well, I'm from Poland. Joined cause we don't really have a Polish Z community <I know some other Z players personally, though>. Z has always been in my "top 5" rts of all times. When I first tried it ,it seemed impossibly and insanely difficult. After a couple of years I tried again and sunk in it completely.

And I really appreciate the succesful attempt to revivify the game. utmost respect!

Yeah your right. eSport is a big thing and growing. C&C, Starcraft, Warcraft :FT, Warhammer ...etc. Videogames are different today. The Gamers are older, and Games are no more Kids Toys. I like that. Its like they're growing up with me :D So more and more people are interested in Videogames i think.

Well, the spread of video entertainment also means that there is more basic stuff for users who don't know much about computers. I remember good old times when you needed specialised programmes just for copying floppy disks <namely "x-copy" for amiga>. Back then gamers were a narrow group that had some know-how. Obviously, it's great that gaming industry has evolved to the point where there's something for everyone, but at the same time it ceased having this certain "arcane knowledge" quality about it.

Hi all. I'm from Russia and newbie here.
I've played z many years and complete all levels four or five times. Recently I found way to play in multiplayer, but I haven't a partner for the duel.

I have original dos version and DOSbox v0.72. And now I want to find someone to play with. You certainly know where I can find [s]teammate[/s] (an opponent). On that day, I had played only couple of times with direct-connect DOSbox's emulation via LAN.

Loved the Earth series. Well, apart from 2160. And haven't played 2140. But still :P
UK here. Loved it, me and my dad used to go through all the levels and 'discuss' tactics even though I didn't really understand it. 10 years ago, when I was seven, doesn't seem that long ago!
Good times.
I'm afraid the server z game 2 is full. However, I have set up two more:-

For Z95 players ONLY!!!, use:
Name: Z95!
Password: Tom
For DOSBox-Z players ONLY!!!, use:
Name: DOSBox-Z!
Password: Tom
Have fun!
