So I decided to buy two copies of Locomotion on Steam, one for myself, and another for a friend. Neither of us have installed the CD version before on the computers we currently use.

I wanted to see if I could host multiplayer, to which simply giving my friend my IP didn't work. I looked up at least 3 or 4 different methods of trying to fix this. I port forwarded several ports, I tried to use GameRanger, heck, I even tried to get the dreaded Hamachi working, all to no avail.

I've no idea if any of these options even work for what I'm trying to do, and I'm not sure if I even did my original methods of getting it working correctly, as there seem to be practically no resources or guides that exist, let alone that are up to date, that involve this.

As for technical details, I'm not the most "computer literate." All I can say is that I'm on Windows 10, with the Steam version of the game, and I have a static IP address. I've successfully port forwarded other games before (with guides, of course), but I just don't know what in the world to do. Anybody know? Can I even do this anymore? Will it blend?

Thanks in advance if anyone knows something.

You could try Hamachi and play over a virtual LAN

Both my friend and I got Hamachi and I created a network, but no matter what I gave him (the ID, the name, etc), he couldn't connect. How do I properly get people to connect?

Have you disabled IPV6 in the Hamachi Connector and set the standard Gateway in IPV4 to 25.0.0.1 and the standard Matrix to 9000?

I had no idea that any of those requirements existed, or how to change them.

I did however locate these two windows in the properties for my Hamachi connection through the Network and Sharing Center:

I unchecked the box for the IPV6 and I'd assume I'd want to check "Use the following IP address" for the gateway instead of "Obtain an IP address automatically."
From there however, I don't know where to continue, if I'm even on the right track.

What would I put for the IP address? Would I just take information from what ipconfig tells me?
What about the subnet mask?
The DNS servers?
And finally, where would I find the standard matrix?
