Super Melee Internet
« on: November 16, 2008, 11:34:04 pm »

Hello all, i just don't get the Super melee internet thing. First off, i can't get on it (it won't connect). Secondly, what does it even do? Clone the person, or have an online match?

The way it works is, you enter the IP address of someone waiting for you and then you play. Usually, you arrange games using the IRC channel, #uqm-arena. But you could potentially (though not easily) use some other method. (The best alternative would be IM). If you have Windows, you can find a bunch of IRC clients. If you use Linux, try Pidgin. (That's what I use)

I made a tutorial.

This does not mean that we will tolerate random idiots, though.

When you are waiting for connection, it means that your computer is acting as the battleground. You are providing the football field where the game will be played. The other team comes from New York and does not know your address. You need to guide him to the football field, and that is what your IP is for.
