|Federation Commander On-Line is a service which is part of the SFB On-Line service that allows players to play Federation Commander across the Internet. The client that allows this to happen is written in Java so that it can be used on any operating system that currently supports a 1.4.x or greater Java Runtime Environment.Ã‚Â
To grab the client go to <http://www.sfbonline.com/install4/install.htm>Client Download.Ã‚Â
If you select "Online (Demo Account)" and enter what callsign you want, you can login for FREE. That is right, it will cost you nothing to try out FC Online. With the free Demo account, you can:Ã‚Â
Chat with other players
Watch any game
Play games against anybody flying any ship. (You are limited to playing either the Federation CA (Fleet or Squadron Version) or the Klingon D7 (Fleet or Squadron Version))
For those who don't already have the Java Runtime Environment available on your computer there is an option to have it included in the download.
If you want a subscription, it only cost $39.95 per year or $10.00 for a 3 month subscription.
A special thanks to Paul Franz that makes FC & SFB Online gaming possible.
