Everything indicates that Galaxy is required for cross-play with Steam. Non-Galaxy copies can still have online multiplayer via Direct IP.

What the hell is a non-galaxy copy?

Direct IP works fine across all systems and platforms, last I tried. Galaxy & Steam are optional.

The ones that can be downloaded from the library via the browser and can be played without Galaxy.

Adding the numbers of potential players is a good idea.
It may be possible that I soon reach the character limit in the first post, I may have to make an additional later one and link there or to some outsourced spreadsheet soon.
Does anyone here have practice with setting up a spread sheet?
It would probably be nice to have the names only once in the list on the left and then additional rows for "Galaxy only", "LAN enabled", "Hot seat" and "Split screen" beside it.
