Well, here's the deal on the modem play with Marathon 2 Win95. Because we
used Direct X with M2 Win95 we got modem-to-modem play for free. Our
programmer did very little specific to modems to make it work. On the
other hand, one of our programmers spent weeks trying to get
modem-to-modem to work under the Marathon networking code. The bottom line
is that it doesn't work. But that doesn't mean we have given up on
modem-to-modem for Marathon Mac. We're working with Apple to add this
feature to Sprockets.

If it happens, it happens. Believe me, we're trying....
