I'll try again right now. I'll leave it going until 1:30am, at which point I'll give up if nobody comes.
Edit: I do have a question about how to setup a udp/ip game: I've set it for up to 8 players, and when I go to the screen where it says "select players" or something like that, and there are 8 boxes with me being X'ed in the first box. It seems impossible to check any of the boxes, and if I just press enter it says something like "Warning: You must have at least 2 people for a netgame" and it starts the game with just myself. Am I doing something wrong, or does this not matter and others will join when they come?
