is an old favorite of mine. I spent many hours playing it back in the day and I still fire it up once in awhile despite it being so long in the tooth.
My start up options were to play against Mars the God of War in ????? and with $50,000 cash. The starting gameplay in the video is unlike that in the original CHQ in that in the original game one cannot place any units except in one's cities, and at the start of a new game the only city one has is one's capital. Also the video's starting cash is relatively unlimited and the person playing apparently is unaware that the game speed can be set at 0 to 6. I always paused the game at the beginning, set the game speed to 0, then unpaused the game to purchase, place, and give movement orders to my units.
Thanks for the link. I hope Open War HQ
