    How to start an online game

    Post  Niall on Sun Nov 30, 2008 3:20 am

    Hosting a network game on FM09 is similar to previous versions. This
    guide will take you step by step through how to get a game running.

    a) Click START NEW GAME and create a game as usual.
    b) Add your manager details and what team you wish to manage
    c) Click on OPTIONS at the top of the screen
    d) Click on PREFERENCES in the menu list
    e) Select the NETWORK tab
    f) Click the tickbox next to RUN AS SERVER put in a name in the NAME OF SERVER
    g) Add a password in the password field if you wish to stop unwanted players from
    connecting to your game.
    h) Now click CONFIRM at the bottom of this screen. Now your game is running
    as a server(online)
    i) Click on GAME STATUS and you should see a SERVER I.P ADDRESS(numbers and dots)
    j) Tell all the players who are going to join your network game your I.P ADDRESS and
    password(if set).
    k) Wait for all the other players to join the game(see next section)

    Joining a Network Game

    Unlike hosting a network game, joining a net game is similar to earlier versions of CM.
    This guide will take you step by step through how to join a net game.

    a) Get the IP ADDRESS and password(if set) from the host of the game(see previous section)
    b) Open up FM09 and click on NETWORK
    c) Click on JOIN OTHER SERVER and then enter the IP ADDRESS that you got
    in step (a) now click OK.
    d) This should now take you to the network game where you can now click on
    ADD MANAGER to begin.

    Hamachi is recommended as it creates a secure connection between the two (or more) computers. It takes 2 minutes to download then whoever is hosting gives the other players the i.p address - easy!

    Very Happy

    When you are in your game which you are hosting...

    Options (Top of the screen)> Game Status

    It should come up with your ip address there.

    Also if you set a password it will be in your preferences under the network part.
