Making a network/server

Post by scruffles38 » 16 Sep 2019 17:47

Hello,

I used to play this game many moons ago, so was amazed to find a version to run on windows 10 :D
I have got my teenage son into it and he has downloaded a copy on his windows 7 pc.
My question is how can we play a game together?
We have tried a few options and watched a few 'how to' videos, but cannot seem to find each others computers/game servers.

Any help would be much appreciated, but please note that I have no idea about how networks etc work :roll:

Thanks in advance guys.

Chris

The easiest solution, which requires no "network knowledge" and no effort whatsoever, is for you both to join a multiplayer server already set up by somebody else. There are plenty of public servers available at any time of the day, and usually only three or four have active players — the rest of them lie empty.
