Besides Toy Racer, any other DC game that is currently online will work with dial-up. BBA currently only supports Q3, PSO and Toy Racer (as well as the XDP browser).

This is amazing that Alien Front Online is coming back! I can't wait to play it again.
I noticed that this game runs on a snap server. Does that mean we will be able to get other snap dependent games up and running online too??

Moband adapter is afaik not dead. There are few people in total working on stuff like this - servers, hardware modifications etc. There are only so much time for projects like these besides work, personal life etc. Eventually, Im sure moband adapter is a reality just like other online games will be.
DCTM at Onlineconsoles is the guy behind the Moband Adapter, and he is a great guy - but there is always so much to do and so little time.

Hey gang, sorry I haven't been around for a while, miss this lovely place and I heard about afo and after I picked my jaw up off the floor I thought I'd come and get the latest :D

So whats the scoop? Is it seriously only going to be possible to use it over dial up?? I'll probably do it anyway but will have to watch the charges though a bb alternative would obviously be preferable
