If you mean in-game, go to multiplayer, then select Local Area Network (UDP)

Heroes of Might and Magic 4 LAN doesnt work


Hey guys,
I was looking for the solution for a few weeks and I might have the solution(s). One is Gameranger which is a program to play older multiplayer games. Quite simple to use but if you have a router you have to forward the 16000 port (UDP). It should work. But it doesn't you can also try Tunngle so you don't need port forwarding anymore. Tunngle has lots of bugs so it can take a time while you can force it to work well but it's a well-known program and it's much easier to get help about it than to get help about a twelve years old strategy game's multiplayer feature.

Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

Im trying to set up the game counter strike source but when I download it and click on it it brings me to a website called steam and doesnt let me play?


You need a steam account, all you have to do is sign up with Steam (which is free). However, if you have downloaded this game, chances are it may not work because majority of steam users actually download their games via steam (they pay using a credit card, and are then able to download a fully certified legal game).
I would suggest signing up for a Steam account and trying to play. If that doesn't work, there are a few ways you can by pass it.
ONLY playing LAN games is one. (Or in this case, pretending to only play LAN games.)
You can do this by:
1. Downloading Garena, Hamachi or Leaf. These are programs that let you play LAN games. (Supposed LAN games, because actually you're playing internationally, just like if you were on a console, but you are tricking the PC to thinking it's a LAN game, as well as fooling the game itself.) I would suggest downloading Garena as it works really well and has the major mainstream PC games. (Plus it is easy to use.)
Just go here:
http://www.en.garena.com/main/

They will give you instructions on how to download Garena, create an account, as well as other information you need.
Hope this helps!

Can i play the cricket 07 on the LAN


Steps:
1. Both you and your friend must download Hamachi. www.hamachi.cc
2. Once done downloading, run the set-up and get in a connection with each other.
3. One person open up Cricket and make an LAN game with yourself.
4. Other person open up the server window and attempt to add a new IP. The IP you enter is the one of your friend which you can find off of Hamachi. It should look like 5.xx.xx.xx.
5. When added, a new game should be in your favorites/whatever tab where IPs are added and then click to join the game.
I've done this... But not with Cricket '07. Counter-Strike 1.6 =D. It's uber fun especially with AMXX mod and a bunch of fun plugins. Hope this works for you.

"cannot connect to gamesession"


I don't think the game allows online play with 2 same cd keys...
I'm not allowed to advise you to get another cd key from the net, because that is illegal.
I guess you will need another copy of the game to play multiplayer.

If the game uses serial codes to install or use the game, you need to have purchased 2 copies. Then you can either connect them with your (i'm assuming is a lan) cable. OR Download hamachi (you should use version 1.0.1.5) and create a network. Hamachi is a program that creates a virtual lan cable. You can download it here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_hamachi/2114/
