This is a guide for those of us that still play the classic D1 and D2 games, which pretty much eliminates the need for kali. However, this applies to ANY game that supports LAN gaming at all.

Hamachi 1.0.1.5

This is the version you want to use, instead of the 2.0 client. After installing, DO NOT update it! The initial release of the 2.0 client worked fine, but for some reason the later versions are broken. If it asks you, you want your Hamachi adapter to be placed on your HOME network.

(Note: For those of you behind a router, you need to forward a port for UDP and TCP traffic to your local static IP. It also helps to speed up the connection time by forwarding these ports as well: 12975 (TCP), 17771 (UDP), 32976 (TCP). It isn't completely necessary to forward those ports, since hamachi will connect anyways. This just speeds the connection time to near instantaneous.)

Now I happen to be running windows 7 on this machine, so you Vista users should have no problem following the screenshots. Those of you using XP, you can still follow along, but you will just have fewer steps to follow. The settings will be the same though.

First, you need to navigate to your "network and sharing center" by either going through your control panel, or right-clicking on the icon it leaves in your system tray.



It should look something like that. Now, what you need to do is click on the "Change Adapter Settings" link at the top-left hand portion of that window. That should take you here:



Clicking that link should bring up the properties for that adapter:



Make sure to DISABLE TCP/IP v6 for this adapter, since all it does is send extra traffic that isn't even being used by anything. Then go to your TCP/IP v4 properties by double-clicking on it.



Click the advanced button, which should take you here:



By default, the metric for the adapter is set to 9000. Set it to 9. Now, you'll want to edit the gateway settings for the adapter, by clicking on the edit button. The metric for that should be set to automatic. Uncheck that box, and set it something rediculously high, like 3000. The result should look like this:



That's it! You're done. Click OK till everything is closed. The changes take place immediately, so you don't have to worry about restarting your computer.

To verify that the change has taken place, hold down the windows key, and tap R. That should bring up the run prompt. Type CMD and press the enter key. This will bring up the command prompt. Type in "route print" (without the ""). The result should look something like this:

Code:

Don't freak out because some numbers don't match EXACTLY. The idea is that the hamachi adapter's metric is much higher than your ACTUAL network adapter's metric, so windows doesn't get confused when it has to deal with two different network adapters running on two different networks.

How are you suppose to organize games if not for Kali or something similar to D3?

I was referring to needing kali to actually PLAY the game.

Ok makes sense. I found this on Rebirths site. Basically it's just like starting a lobby in Kali ,idiot proof and free.

Hey Flip! (I posted this on the .net side too, I don't know which you check more, it looks like this one).

I have kali so I don't know if I need this program?

This is Lancer / Clone7, you made some of the 3dpro converters for me and we played some descent last summer. I'd like to get everything installed again (the computer it was on DIED!) and get some games in .

However, I'd need you to give me the files for D1 again? My email is spgarber@gmail.com if you want to contact me so I can get up and running and we can get a game in

Thanks!

Kali still does work, though it's quite limited when it comes to modern games. For instance, both Flatout, and its sequel, will not work at all over kali. Those two games, work perfectly fine over hamachi as it's as if you were on the same LAN. If all you want to play is Descent, then kali will work fine.

This thing on my iGoogle page had been bugging me for a while.
It seems google is taking it apon itself to try to matchmake people together with similar interests, I have no idea who this person is.
I finally decided to put the address into google and see what came up.
It pointed me to this thread.

It's a small world eh?

Lol... yes it is! How is that converter treating you? Wish I could've used it for longer, but it was a great "blast to the past" while I did :). Life's settling down now and I don't get as much time on the computer as I used to, although I have tried out console gaming.

Anyway, Cheers!

Oh so that's who you are. Very Happy
In that case it must have suggested you because we have email history recorded in my google account.

Man, would you believe it that the exact same time i got the converter... i started getting pc problems that prevent me from playing games. FUUUUUUU

Does this justify a sticky?
