As far as I know - no they did not. On the
other hand I haven't heard something from
flosoft in a while so he might be the one
who was contacted.
Do you own the history edition? Would be
interesting to know if they changed the
files or if rttr still runs with the files
provided by the history edition.
Hopefully the history edition leads people
to google and search for settlers 2
multiplayer which leads to rttr :)
