I won't have time till the 11th of october (end of exams), but after that I'd like to try this out. I'm pretty sure that it will work much better with a non emulated version.

if anyone is interested and has msn, add me:
line6rules@hotmail.com
This would be fine!
Thank you.

I can't program or understand network very good, but I hope I can help you, so I added you to my msn messenger list.

Sound interresting but it s just for Z classic , not Z95 and Extension ?

Maybe can we use other software of VPN running under WIN 95 , 98 , me ... for playing the funniest version of Zed : 95 & Extension ??

Is it possible ? Some Idea ?

The Manual sayd if you play on Lan you just need 1 CD on pc , all other PC needn't run their Zed CD . So when create VPN it s a LAN , and we just can use Virtual CD for emulate the CDROM on 1 machine of all of player .

NOTE: this is still expermental, but beserk3r and i managed to squese of a game over the internet. Be warned It's laggy.

The Proccedure

1. Download and Install Hamachi from http://www.hamachi.cc

2. Create a nick and join the network 'zzone' with the password 'brad'

3. Make sure you have DOSbox version 0.63 or greater. Open the Dosbox config file and scroll down untill you find 'ipx=false' and set it to 'ipx=true'
I can't even find the ipx on the the Dosbox conf file. I have version 0.65

Any suggestions? Should I add the ipx=true somehwere? If so, where?

I'm not an expert on IPX. Maybe type IPX instead of IPXNET.

Have you used this.
This is how I got Z to work on XP

It should still be there with DOSbox 0.65

If you still can not find it add the following lines to the end of you config file:
[ipx]
ipx=true

I just tried DOSbox 0.65. IPXNET STARTSERVER works fine. Check that you are using the correct config file.

Wait, are you trying to use Hamachi over a lan? That should still work fine as hamachi realises the difference between a local connection and a wider connection, but try it without hamachi. Ive done this a few times and DOSbox seems to have no problems selecting the correct adapter to connect to the other computer. I do use windows 2000 PC's though. Try disabling windows firewall.

Ok, so after a few tries, I've finally got it working ;) But, it's just not playable - theres soooo much lag! It stops every few seconds to reconnect, and everytimne you issue an order it takes forever for it to sink in! Is there anyway to improve it? I'm trying it over LAN, me and my dad, but its too laggy - anything I can do?

Maybe its just my Dads laptop, does anyone else want a game? Add me on MSN (but don't email me on this address)
thebongmeister-infamy@yahoo.co.uk

Thanks a lot =]
I'm afraid the server z game 2 is full. However, I have set up two more:-

For Z95 players ONLY!!!, use:
Name: Z95!
Password: Tom
For DOSBox-Z players ONLY!!!, use:
Name: DOSBox-Z!
Password: Tom
Have fun!
