6-4-11: Initial release.


I love old school games, and nothing brings back more nostalgia for me than playing Grand Theft Auto 1. See the video tutorial below. In the more info section, I got a link to my portable version of the game, so you can download it and play online with Tunngle if you desire. Have fun!

Crysis 2 Beta – Tunngle Guide


Revisions:
2-19-11: Initial release.


Hey all, I was just browsing around online and my friend sent me a link to an article that shows how to play the leaked Crysis 2 online with your other friends. In this particular example, he is using Tunngle but you can easily use any other VPN program if you desire.

Please note that I do not condone piracy, and that I don’ have the leaked copy of Crysis 2 as I am waiting for the real game. For those that cannot wait, do as you wish. See the link below for the tutorial.

[How To] Play Splinter Cell Conviction LAN Online Using Tunngle

Revisions:

5-12-10: Initial release.


I will keep this guide brief and short. You are here because you want to play Splinter Cell Conviction LAN online with your friends. This tutorial will cover the LAN method only. I will not cover the friend invite method.

Downloads:

Latest patch is 1.02:

Patch 1.02:  Rapidshare

(Run the official 1.02 patch. Then copy all the skidrow items to the src/system folder. Make sure to type in a username in the “Skidrow.ini” and save it.)

Tutorial Process:

1) Go to tunngle.net. Download and install tunngle. Register for an account.

2) Login to tunngle. Type ‘conviction’ in the search box and enter the splinter cell conviction room of your choosing.

3) Start the game.

4) Go to LAN and click on create game if you want to be host. If you are a client, click on a game in the server list and if everything works right you will be playing!

Troubleshooting Area

If you have issues hosting or connecting, please try the steps below:

1) Ensure that tunngle is number 1 in the network stack.

2)  Make sure to port forward udp 11155 in the router. Although not required, it may help.

3) If you are using an antivirus software like NOD32 that has networking capabilities, disable it and try again.

4) I have seen cases where people have allowed Tunngle and Splinter Cell Conviction in the Windows Firewall and the game still does not broadcast. Disabling the firewall may help.

5) The worst case scenario is to turn on DMZ in the router for your specific IP address.

If you have any other tips, leave a comment.

[How To] Play Age of Mythology LAN Online Using Tunngle (Forget Hamachi/Garena)

Revisions:

1-25-10: Initial release.


I was testing this game recently and discovered that by default when hosting a LAN game online using Tunngle, it likes to use your default IP address assigned by your router. An example would be 192.168.0.1.  This is irritating because you want the game to recognize your Tunngle IP address.  What to do?

Diablo 2 Lords Of Destruction Tunngle Weekend

Revisions:

1-21-10: Initial release.


This week I had a brutal week at work. Words cannot explain how stressful it has been the last couple of days. With that said, I though it would be cool to get back into some old school gaming, and what better game than Diablo 2?  Even better, let’s play the Lords of Destruction version.

This weekend throughout Saturday and Sunday, I will be in and out of Tunngle playing this game. If you want to join me, by all means go ahead. Login to tunngle, and go to the Diablo 2 room under RPG.  This should be fun. If successful, I wouldn’t mind hosting games like this every now and then. See you there!

Just make sure to update your game to latest version!

January Underground Youtube Wallpaper Winner

Download link to wallpaper here.

Everyone, I want to personally thank Seb for winning this months Youtube Wallpaper contest!  It was tough deciding what video to put his wallpaper in, but the other day I re-recorded my Halo 2 tunngle video, which in sort is very special to me because Halo 2 I could not get to work in Hamachi at all, and it worked in Tunngle the first try.

Since then, I have become a devout Tunngle user. You can see this wallpaper in action in the video below. Stay tuned for next month’s contest!

[How To] Play Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne LAN Online Free Using Tunngle (Forget Hamachi & Garena)

Revisions:

1-11-10:  Initial release.

1-12-10:  Added my youtube video.


Foreword: There is nothing illegal about playing Warcraft 3 LAN online bypassing the Battle.net servers. I have a legit game, and I play on Tunngle with friends time to time. If you are a Hamachi user, I suggest you switch to Tunngle. There are more people and its easier to host!


I love DOTA. I love it so much that I play it when I am sick of playing other games. With that said, someone had requested a Tunngle tutorial on how to play this game online, so here is the tutorial. If you want to play DOTA online with me and the others, add my Tunngle username: Versatile.

Tutorial:

1) First of all, make sure you have the latest game update. You can get the latest Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne update here.

2) Download and install Tunngle. Make an account. Sign in. If you are having trouble signing into Tunngle, then you need to port forward UDP 11155 for your computer. Don’t know how to port forward? See my video below:

3) Go to the Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne network. Or the Dota Network. To get there, you need to login to Tunngle. Then do Community -> Networks -> Browser -> Strategy -> Forward (Press 4 times) -> Double click on the Warcraft 3 network.

Red Alert 1 (Free Game Download) – How To Play Online Using Tunngle


Revisions:
12-30-09: Initial release.

1-12-10: Fixed links.

5-6-10: Updated links.


Foreword: Please go to the Red Alert network under the Tunngle program for some great 4vs4 action! – Versatile


Today from fellow tunngler (cousinehy) I found out that Red Alert 1 is free, and that the community created a special multiplayer release where it is UDP compatible!

What does this mean? It means that I can give you the download link to Red Alert 1, and play with other players easily in Tunngle, Hamachi, or wherever!

However, I know that Tunngle is the solution, and you should not be tempted to try Kali or Hamachi or the other programs because honestly they are not that good.

Below is the download link for the game:

Download link:

RA303UDP http://www.megaupload.com/?d=89SCSSUB
AM303UDP http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HMB3B5V9

Other Notes:

RA303UDP includes:
-Skirmish/Network/Internet
-3.03 patch
-UDP patch

RA303UDP excludes:
-Singe player missions
-Movies
-Music

ATTENTION!
– EA has announced C&C Red Alert 1 as a freeware.
– RA303UDP is not supported by Tunngle or EA.
– RA303UDP is just an installer that contains C&C Red Alert files.
– Trademarks belong to their respective owners.
– I nor does any Tunngler take credit for this.

[How To] Play Left 4 Dead 2 LAN Online Using Tunngle (Garena, or Hamachi)

Easy to remember URL = http://www.tinyurl.com/l4dguide2

Garena username = versatileninja, Tunngle username = versatile

Foreword:  As we all know, L4D2 right now is an awesome game.  Similar to last year, I was involved with writing Hamachi and Garena guides for L4D1.  It was good for awhile, but in retrospect it was a pain and almost a mistake to talk about questionable practices.  The tutorials got so popular that WordPress caught on and we had a 9 day suspension which turns out because we had links to so called “cracks” and the articles were removed to keep the blog alive. If you want to continue with L4D 1, see the unofficial L4D site here.

Now that L4D 2 is here, I am going to take a different approach. WordPress staff or other questionable readers I have this statement for you.  No way does this tutorial indirectly or directly facilitate illicit methods or devious acts of behavior (also known as piracy).  This tutorial shows legitimate gamers how to play Left 4 Dead 2 online without having to succumb to Steam and be forced to use it for their gaming pleasure.  This tutorial shows users how to host and connect to LAN games online without having to resort to Steam. If you believe this is a mistake, search google and see how many gamers are resorting to other needs to play games without Steam.  Now the tutorial has become more valuable.  Left 4 Dead 2 is a great game. Support Valve.  Support “innovation”.  – Versatile

Note:  This is a warm hello to all gamers who are looking how to play L4D 2 LAN online.  Props goes first of all to the Tunngle team and the community there.  Garena and Hamachi get no brotherly love. Read the rant below to understand why.  Nonetheless, I decided to put up a quick Garena setup guide because they need help irregardless what the VPN program is and I am a nice guy. :)
