One of you has to start a MP game, the other one joins using the IP address of the host computer, it should appear in the MP game menu as a local game.

Unfortunately, you can't start an internet game with BF2. Try finding an empty internet server.

Yes you can ... It will be unranked, but you can host your own server. The host will see it as a local game and the secondaries, will see it on the net.

Whats the exact method to do this then? I thought you needed the server files to run at same time. Personally I've always gone for that "empty server" optino :)

all you need to do is click create local it wont show up on the local list trust me. me and my friend host servers all the time for sandbox the only way to join it is by the ip address.

where can you find the IP address for the local game you make? is it my own Ip address or some other address?
