Default Charred Dirt: The Child of the Mother of All Games

Don't know how many of you played Scorched Earth years ago but I recently found a great modern clone of the game. It is very true to the feel of the old game, really cool art and solid game. I don't think network play works in this current version. I have put the client up in the downloads section http://www.thzclan.com/files/?cat=51

Downloading it now to try it. Loved Scorched Earth, and I think I may still have it some where.

Yeah it is here http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/ it is not bad, but I don't really like the addition of rotation in the equation. There is also a multiplayer Java based one here http://www.scorch2000.com/

I don't know what you're talking about... unless it's that game that's like Gorillas (for Q-Basic), only with nukes and dirt bombs and such.
