You can find instructions for setting up Netkeen on Lemm's website: http://netkeen.nfshost.com/guide.html

And on the Keenwiki: http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/Netkeen

If you don't have anyone to play with, you can join us for matches in the Netkeen irc channel at #netkeen on the foonetic network.

Further Netkeen discussion should be taking place here viewtopic.php?t=1856.

One common solution to "it doesn't work for me" is actually telling us where in the instructions you're having trouble so that we can help :dead

A video walkthrough would be a good idea, but it should be put up on youtube for all keeners and potential keeners to see and use. :british

-nodes 2, not modes, but yes it refers to the number of players... and no, im not using yang, i find that it overcomplicates things as opposed to the opposite, especially setting it up.

When I saw that in my subscriptions it was almost enough to make me try again to get Netkeen running (not enough though as I have quite a bit of coursework at the moment). Also, CamStudio does not suck - it is awesome! CamStudio is open-source while its only real competitor is Shareware and watermarks every video produced on the free version (I think you know the software to which I refer).

Haha yes i do know the software to which you were referring *shudder*.

Ill rephrase my criticism: CamStudio's audio compresser sucks, but the program DOES work quite well.

The demo feature just allows you to play recordings that you have made of past matches and isn't actually a playable demo of the game. It will not work unless you have actually recorded a demo to play in it. Thus, you shouldn't really need it, and you're good to go.

I'll also be making a video on how to HOST a server and game in the coming week.[/quote]
