Years ago I picked up an awful version. I can't believe that no one has
created something more up-to-date and could support on-line games. Does such
a thing exist?

You can find all programs on:

www.diplom.org

go to 'online resources'.

JDip, Diptool en Palmpolitik are DATC tested, but Realpolitik has
also a good adjudicator.

But his key point is "supporting on line games" and none of the
simple adjudicators come close to doing that.

What do you mean with "supporting on line games"? Those adjudicators
support reading judge input. Sometimes directly from your mailbox.

He's talking about fully running an on-line game, so that you work
from your PC and things you type in a program loaded on your PC
automatically are communicated to your correspondent and you
enter the orders on your PC, and the program links to all seven
PCs of the players and automatically adjudicates the results.
Much beyond a Judge.

He means a multiplayer computer game version of Diplomacy, rather than a
tool to handle adjudication. The Hasbro version was indeed dire - not
sure if it was ever updated.
