What is Domination?
In the classic "World Domination" game of military strategy, you are battling to conquer the world. To win, you must launch daring attacks, defend yourself to all fronts, and sweep across vast continents with boldness and cunning. But remember, the dangers, as well as the rewards, are high. Just when the world is within your grasp, your opponent might strike and take it all away!

Domination on an eComStation machine with Open JDK

Installation Domination
Download Domination_1.2.0.zip. Create a folder (directory) "Domination". Open the zip file with a file manager, such as FC/2, and go into the directory "Domination". Copy the contents to the new folder "Domination" or copy the subdirectory "Domination" to your drive. Delete the subdirectories "Domination.app" and "Map Editor.app", they are for Apple systems. Delete the files starting with a dot, they are also for Apple systems. Delete all files with the extension ".cmd", ".sh" and ".exe". They are for Windows and Linux systems.

The used cmd file
Domination works well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have created an Domination.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off
set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin
set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin
[drive: Domination]
cd [drive: Domination]\Domination
java -jar Domination.jar
I use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Domination with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;

  • [drive: java] = drive with Java
  • [drive: Domination] = drive with Domination

should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and name it IconEdit.cmd or use the commandfile from the distribution. This file is copied to the Domination folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs.

Create a new program object or copy it from the file below. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: Domination]\Domination\Domination.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Domination".

In the file you can find the above command file (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 Domination icon: Domination-eCS.zip.
