IPX network protocol
Uses the old and largely obsolete IPX network protocol. Unfortunately no longer supported by modern operating systems natively, making playing games that require it difficult.
Alternate names: Internetwork Packet Exchange, IPX/SPX, Sequenced Packet Exchange
The first video game about IPX network protocol was released in 1990.
Around 2007 several operating systems removed IPX support completely, most notably Windows Vista. Other operating systems also removed it, but on them IPX probably never was used very seriously. Mac seems to have never had IPX support built-in, and Linux still seems to include IPX support despite it likely never having much use there.
