Hey everyone I just got the game. My problem is as follows, when I play multiplayer, I can find other players, as well as BE found so long as I am in a game I did not create. However, when I start my own game, I cannot be found. Not even by people who could find me in the previously stated circumstances. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be ? I don't know if it matters, but I use MSN, and have a dual phone modem (113k).
You need to create a Dedicated InterNet Server with your own settings for whatever type of game you want to play. If you want any MODs on your server then you will need to load them (under the Setup menu) BEFORE you select the Create Server option. When the server starts up you will only see the server console. You will see the message when it is all up and running saying "Heartbeat" sent. Minimise the server console. Your server is now visible on the InterNet.
If you want to play on this InterNet visible server then you must start a second JK2 session (doublclick on the desktop icon again). This time choose Join game and select LOCAL instead of InterNet (remember it will be EMPTY so you must select the option to show empty servers). Join this game and you can then be found on the InterNet as well as your server.
Hope it all works out for ya.
