Connection instructions. In the patched version of the game there is a TCP / IP game, but only within the network, the Hamachi program will help to create an intranet accessible via the Internet.
Install Hamachi. When installing, leave the "Block vulnerable services for Hamachi connections" checkbox empty, also turn off the Windows Firewall, if you have a firewall or antivirus, then turn it off too, it may interfere with the connection. Next, we launch Hamachi, you will immediately be given your own, intranet IP-address. We click on "go to the existing network" and drive in the WorldRacing.Info network with the password 111. Launch the patched GPM2 (by declaring the properties of GPM2.exe and setting 256 colors and Win95 compatibility). Go to the Link Play menu, then TCP / IP, the Slave button and enter the IP address of the server (mine) 126.96.36.199, it will take some time to find the server, 1-5 minutes. After the one who manages the server sees that everyone has entered, he will press start and the game will start.
Hi - thank you for the reply. We did do the above, and we can both join the same Hamachi network, but when either of us tries to join the other's game we eventually time out and get an "unable to connect" error from GPM2. I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing similar.
If anyone else tries it and has feedback or success, it'd be appreciated. My work schedule is crazy, so hosting a league is not really in the cards, just looking to setup a game with one of my buddies I played with back in 97.
