What? You took Chris Crawford's Tanktics video game from approx. 1978 and made this? xD.  I don't know why but it really looks like it  at first sight, i mean the printed map back then, that came with the game, really looks  a bit like in your tanktics-game. 

A little bit only :-D. The game from 1976 itself is text-only, no animation moving over a map, the game was played with just text commands and a printed map to track locations. You got the inspiration from Crawford's original Tanktics -...a bit maybe :-D

Yes funny story. I came up with the game as a mixture of World of Tanks and XCOM. First it had a different name, when the team was complete we looked for a name. First it was called Tankticle, but that was too similar to other words. So we decided to call it Tanktics. A little later I searched for Tanktics on google for fun and found a really bad game with that name, but also the very old Tanktics by Chris Crawford and was very surprised that we somehow managed to build a very similar game.

Somehow everything was already there. I still hope that we made a pretty good game.

Please, make singleplayer mode.

wir wollten den multiplayer testen. Wir können jeweils ein Spiel erstellen und der Andere sieht das Spiel bei "join", aber es passiert nichts, wenn wir es starten wollen. Funktioniert das gerade nicht oder müssen wir noch was einstellen? Gibt keinen antivir Alarm und haben es noch manuell in die Firewall eingetragen.

Hey Marten! Wir haben eben nochmal alles getestet und es hat einwandfrei Funktioniert. Eine Person muss das Spiel erstellen und der Gegenspieler muss demjenigen dann joinen. Sobald das passiert ist, muss der ersteller des Spiels noch das Spiel starten.
Sollte es weiterhin nicht funktionieren kannst du uns gerne per Discord schreiben.
Grüße aus dem Tanktics-Team!

Danke für den Support! Konnte eben das Spiel starten. Probiere es später nochmal mit meinem Kumpel und meld mich, wenns geklappt hat :)
