I had an idea for a campaign:

Forms app to connect a host and client-  small map to move tokens around on.  Uses hooks to capture input and look for alt f11
turn based

when a player ends their turn,  the moves are calc'ed and if a battle occurs, the form generates arm files and sends them and the map name to the players

they then launch d o and play mp with the files

At end of game on screen where you can see the results, players hit the combo, and the form takes a screenie.  it then uses ocr to read the dudes left from the screenie and joiner sends res to host.  the form then updates the arm files and the next turn can begin.

just spitballin'.  what do you think?

Now you only need someone to write such a tool Wink

No OCR needed, you can get the killed/death unit stats from the saved ARM file after battle.

Sounds a good idea if you have the time.

Yea, I haven't played MP in a long time, so I  forgot how it went.
