Process - Steps:
1 - Download IPX Wrapper.
http://www.solemnwarning.net/ipxwrapper/

2 - Unzip the files to a folder.

3 - Copy the 4 DDL files from the IPX Wrapper folder to the Close Combat III folder (adjust to wherever Close Combat III files are installed to - below is default for my Desktop Close Combat III Install)
G:\Close Combat III

4 - Go back to IPX Wrapper extracted zip folder

5 - Run ipxconfig.exe program

6 - Select the Ethernet device your going to use. (Probably the same device your using for internet).

7 - Check box at the bottom for "Automatically create Windows Firewall exceptions

8 - Click "Apply" button

9 - Click "OK" button to close the program

10 - Go back to IPX Wrapper extracted zip folder

11 - Double-Click the appropriate reg file that applies to your OS
"Directplay-win32.reg" for 32-bit Windows
"Directplay-win64.reg" for 64-bit Windows (I run Win 10 x64 so this is what I used)

12. Click through the prompts to allow the Registry file to add the contents to your system.

13. Be sure Close Combat III is in Compatibility mode for Windows XP Service pack 2 or 3. Along with Admin Privileges activated.

At this point you should be able to start the game and find a new entry for IPX in Close Combat III Multiplayer. You Should be able to create a Multiplayer game under IPX. Should you do the exact same process on another PC that is on your home Local Area Network (LAN), your 2nd PC should see the host game on Close combat III IPX Multiplayer. Granted you followed the instructions properly and have the 2nd PC already showing on your win 10 network with file sharing enabled.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
