Title: Multiplayer Schedule + How To Get Started in FS2 Multiplayer - Read this first!

If you want to get started using FS2NetD, you will need to read this (http://www.game-warden.com/forum/showthread.php?t=267). You only need to forward your ports to host, not to join games.

YOU CANNOT JOIN WHILE A GAME IS IN PROGRESS!

DO NOT PLAY WITH 3.6.8Z MEDIAVPS IF YOU WANT TO SAVE STATS!

Currently 3.6.10 is FUBAR, you're best off using 3.6.9 until some bugs are fixed. You can not see 3.6.10 games in 3.6.9, and vice-versa. The 3.6.10 MediaVPs will allow you to save stats while playing with them.


When you are done, your settings should look something like this (http://i16.tinypic.com/4uxjng3.jpg).

If you want to host first read this (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,48884.0.html).

This (http://www.voipuser.org/software/pftwin.zip) will let you test your UDP port forwarding.

This tool (http://www.anetchat.prv.pl/freespace) Enables you to see which games are being played. Both files must be in the same folder!

If you have a low end PC, or just want to play with friends, this (https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp?lang=en) utility is useful for IP (direct link) games.
Network: FSOPEN
Password: galatea

You can see your rankings and what games are going on here (http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/).

You need the multiplayer mission pack (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,45919.0.html) to play or host.  

If you want to use a mod or conversion such as Inferno or BtRL notify me by PM.

If you have to cancel, notify me by PM as soon as you can.
