Port Request - Wargus

Wargus is a Warcraft2 Mod that allows you to play Warcraft2 with the Stratagus engine, as opposed to play it with the original Warcraft2 one. So unless you have a legal copy of Warcraft2 (original DOS Version required, won't work with the battle.net edition) Wargus will be pretty useless to you, since it doesn't come with any graphics or sounds itself.

So why play Warcraft2 with the Stratagus engine instead of the original Warcraft2 one ? There are numerous reasons, first it allows you to play Warcraft2 under GNU/Linux and other operating systems not supported by the original Warcraft2 engine, secondly it allows you to play over the internet, which the original Warcraft2 engine didn't allow you to. Last not least the Stratagus engine allows you to tweak numerous parameters so you can play around with different unit strength and such.

Thank You

Sorry - scratch that  :)

I have a PSP on the way for Christmas, and it just occurred to me that there is  PSX version of Warcraft 2! I think this would be the better option as it will be designed for a controller and would run full speed.

I still think Wargus would be a fantastic addition to the GCW though
