The new Tomb Raider game is getting a lot of good reviews, and what better way to embrace it than to play it online? You got 4 different game modes to play with, and if you get enough players on your side, it is going to be a lot of fun.
So to cut to the chase, make sure you install the game, get the latest game update, patch with latest multiplayer fix, start steam using greenluma, and start playing!
See below for the tunngle wiki with latest information and my video tutorial.

Aliens: Colonial Marines just came out, and the game is a lot of fun. I’ll cut to the chase, see the video tutorial below.
Or click here for the Tunngle text tutorial wiki.
So recently I was reading an article on Co-optimus.com where it said that Gamespy had decided to shut down several public game servers, which included Neverwinter Nights, Hidden & Dangerous 2, SWAT 4, and Star Wars: Battlefront.
To read more about the article, click here.
Of those 4 games, I know the first 3 has LAN. If some corporation shuts down your public server, does that mean you game is dead?
Hell no! Thanks to VPN gaming technologies like Tunngle or Hamachi, you can take your LAN game and put it online so that other gamers can join you. Just because another company decides to shut down your favorite game server doesn’t mean the game is going to die, and this is the very main reason why I support LAN gaming 110%.
In fact, 90% of my PC game library right now is games that has LAN. If it doesn’t have it, I don’t keep it for long term. Why is that? It’s because I love multiplayer, and I love LAN. There is something very fun and exciting about fragging someone in the game, knowing that they live in the same house, or in the same network.
If its a regular multiplayer match, destroying someone on the other side of the world doesn’t feel the same as if destroying your fellow gamer in a local LAN match. It just feels more…intimate in that regards.
Nonetheless, using VPN game solutions can help extend the life of games significantly. Unfortunately, not all games get LAN implemented into them. But at least the ones that do have them, you can be assured to have good times forever and ever. 🙂

Here is a very quick text tutorial of what you need to do in order to play Need for Speed Most Wanted Black Edition online using the tunngle program.
1) Install Need for Speed: Most Wanted
2) Download and Install Update 1.3
3) Go to your Game Installfolder and edit the “server.cfg” File
- Replace TRUST=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx with TRUST=255.255.255.255
- Replace TRUST_MATCH=%%bind(“xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx”) with TRUST_MATCH=%%bind(“YourTunngleIP”)
- Replace ADDR=%%bind(“188.8.131.52”) with ADDR=%%bind(“YourTunngleIP”)
4) Join the Need for Speed: Most Wanted Network
5) Start the Game
- As Client: Go to “LAN Play” and join any Match
- As Host: If you are inside the Mainmenu, then go back to the Desktop and disable your Internet Adapter. Go back to Game and create your Server under “LAN Play”. Re-enable your Internet Adapter and wait for Tunngle reconnect, then you have to wait for Players to join your Server.
That’s it! Have fun!

Starcraft 2 gamers, its time to celebrate! My youtube friend Hidraga told me of a new fan site called http://battle4sc2.com, and this is a portal/forum site that talks about the latest development of Starfriend, which is a TW client that allows you to play LAN online with other people. Yup, and you don’t need to use Hamachi, Tunngle, or any other program.
There is only one caveat though: As of today (7-12-11), you got to download the Chinese version of the game, then download all the associated patches, and then you are good to go.
Don’t worry though, its really easy, and there are tutorials on this already. To learn more about it, go the following links below to get up to speed:
It is unknown in the future if users will be able to use a new version of Starfriend to use with their existing English copies. Time will tell! Enjoy!
If you start to read the comments here on this blog, you really have to stop and question if the Chinese program is safe to use at all. The reason behind this move is that we know that China (just in general) is known to have caused global warefare in terms of cyber hacking. Although there is no proof yet that this Starfriend is corrupted, you just got to air on the side of caution. Since the program is closed source, you don’t really know what is underneath the hood.
As a skeptic, I may not believe what is truth or not in regards to the security of this Starfriend, and if it is trying to hoard my data in the background. Nonetheless, I am playing on LAN on a PC that has nothing to do with online financials and things of that nature, I will continue to use this program.
However, some of you might be weary of trying to play this, and I don’t blame you. If you do decide to try it out, then maybe what you want to do is keep an eye on your network activity and make sure nothing evil is coming in, or out of your PC. 😛

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.
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.)
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!
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.

This weekend we are trying something new, so we are going to do a Call of Duty 4 Tunngle weekend! If you have COD4, please stop by in the Tunngle room and have some fun. See you there!

Per suggestion of Awsome26, this weekend is going to be a Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne weekend in Tunngle. Throughout the weekend on Saturday and Sunday, expect a couple of us Tunngler guys trolling in the room. We will play all sorts of custom maps, including DOTA.
If this sounds like fun, by all means stop in and we can have a quick game or two. Old school gaming lives on thanks to community involvement. If this turns into a success, expect more games in the future.
As usual, if you have Xfire, by all means join the Xfire tunngle group! You can find it here.

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?
