Hello, I've played a lot of close combat before but only ever singleplayer, I have never played multiplayer but would love to try it out some time, I am probably no where near a veteran player but I want a bit of fun etc. How do i find people to play with and also how can i play it online? I have pretty much the original 5 CC games and have the latest 3 of the matrix games downloaded, although I'd preferably like to play CC2 as i'm a little more familiar with it than the later games, but any of the games is fine

Problem still is finding people to play with however :D
And to answer your question maybe port forwarding? I know CC2 uses port 1945 by default so port forwarding that could potentially work for a direct connection via TCP/IP but can't be certain as never tried, and it seems to be a 50/50 chance of that getting mp working on older games which is why I mostly use hamachi for older games these days

Hi CloseCombatRob, if you start hanging out in game ranger you'll see other people playing from time to time, message them and add them to your friends and that way you'll see when they're online and can contact them directly for games. Somewhere on the forum here people have posted their gameranger ID's too, I think it might be in people's profiles also, you can add friends that way too and see when they're online.
