This game works with: Basilisk II,

Real-time global domination for one or two players.

From Brian Moriarty's tribute to Dani Bunten: "MicroProse took up the cause of modem-based wargaming in a big way with the 1990 [Dani Bunten] release, Command HQ, which boasted a simple, clean user interface that made historical strategy more accessible than ever, and racked up impressive sales." The game features many hypothetical scenarios, good graphics, and competent AI for when you can't find a live human opponent. The modem play is also excellent - making the game one of the first truly playable multiplayer wargames. Recommended!

This was a truly great game back in the day.

I have the original game and manual, I typed up the first dozen pages or so many, many years ago, as it was part of the copy protection.

I might try scanning it and running it through OCR, at least then you get some of the pics.

Tested and seems to runs well in Basilisk II with SSW 7. This one could really use a manual, however. Sort of hard to figure out how to play.

Edit: Changed 'xxx 7' to 'SSW 7' - IIGS User
