Archon Ultra is a remake of the strategic board game Archon: The Light and the Dark.

Netplay

This game offers modem multiplayer, which DOSBox can convert to netplay. You can enable it by creating the following files in the game's folder:

dosbox.conf

[serial]
serial1=modem
serial2=dummy
serial3=disabled
serial4=disabled

modem.bat

@echo off
SET ARCHON_MODEM_COMPORT=2
SET ARCHON_MODEM_COMADDR=2f8
SET ARCHON_MODEM_COMINT=3
archon

Then use DOSBox to launch the second file instead of the game's executable.
