I'm n00b in generals ZH online in hamachi network. Can U explain me how to use it. I have got already generals ZH patch 1.04 installed on my PC after that what can i do to connect with Hamachi??
Ok this is how you connect via hamachi.
1) Download hamachi and install it, you can get the program from here
2) Load Hamachi and since it will be your first time loading the program it will run a quick wizard where you select a nickname and so forth.
3) at the bottom of the hamachi window there is a button that looks like a triangle with dots at the points(best way to describe it lol) Hover over it to make sure you have the right one it should be "create or join networks".
So click on that and input the network name and password for the network you wanna join.
The networks and passwords are "case sensitive" so make sure you input them right.
4) once u have joined the network load the game then go into options and check the IP if it is showing your normal one than use the drop down menu and input the hamachi IP that was assigned to you.
Once done all thats left to do is make a game via the lan options of the game "not" the Internet, i can't remember the menus to be honest lol not played in like 2 weeks but if i recall it is "network>direct connect" or something.
Anyways once your at the lan screen lobby in the player list it should show all the people in the hamachi network you are in as long as there game is loaded and there on the same screen, then one of you make a game and it will show up in the list.. then join and play simple.
Idk if i explained this very clearly i tend to ramble when i not eaten anything in a while and i missed lunch zomg.
Some problem that may arise.
If people can see you in the lan lobby but you can not see them then it is most likely because one or more of you have not got your IP in your options set to the hamachi IP that was assigned to you so everyone should go check.
I found this out when i had trouble playing a game with capt.drake.
If you fail to join a network it is possible that its full and so try another or try PMing the admin of the network your trying to log into and see if there are any people not logged on but stealing a slot in the network, If yes then the admin can kick that player to make room for people that wanna play.
Everyone should understand that if your not using the network please "leave" the network because even if your DC you still have a reserved slot on the network this stops others from joining.
There is no reason why you can't rejoin at a later date when you wanna play another game, if your kicked from a network because your taking up a slot in the network because your offline don't take it the wrong way you can rejoin when you want to play.
Also you can be connected to multiple networks at anyone time but please only connect to 1 because if you connect to multiple accounts you would be taking up a slot in 2 or 3 networks.
And it is free to make a network off your own and as many of them as you like (if you really wanted) so if you and your friends have trouble joining a network why not make a privet one for you and your friends.
PS: i'll come back and recheck this over later when i am thinking more normal... but um me normal? yer right lol
