The project isn’t dead! In these three months I’ve been working hard on the WMRTS menu game launcher and in particular on “online account” feature, the skirmish interface and the installation client.
At the moment, for the beta launch and the upcoming versions the online mode is not planned but in the future WMRTS will probably support multiplayer skirmish battles.
For this reason, I’m building the WMRTS skirmish interface with some basic features for multiplayer support in order to reduce the amount of future work and to make it more compatible with standard multiplayer functions. This, though, requires much extra time.
