There exists two possibilities to start a multiplayer game.
a) you are the host. You will select the missions.
By the way : my favour missions are :
in our squadron Mosquitos we will fly against the computer together. This is called Co Op. Our favour Co Op is Airfield Denial.
b) you are guest.
In both cases you will need an IP Number. Every online computer has got an own IP Number. Yours, too. Just start the program WINIPCFG from Windows. Now you can read your own IP Number
a) if you want to host games you have to inform TAW pilots with your IP number. You can inform them if you are use the tool ICQ. ICQ can send messages worldwide less than one second delay. You can download the tool ICQ from http://www.icq.com Every ICQ user will get an UIN [User Identity Number]. My homepage Mosquitos offers an adress book as Excel Document. There are more than 50 active pilots, worldwide with ICQ UIN Number.
01. Download ICQ
02. Install ICQ
03. Aquire all known pilots with UIN
04. Talk to people.
05. Decision join an other IP Number or own hosting
06. Start Total Air War
07. Multiplayer TCP/IP Connection
08. Join a game [enter the IP Number]
or host a game
09. New game [Do not forget to inform pilots with your IP Number]
For a better data connection ICQ should be closed when flying TAW. When connection have got a break down you can restart ICQ again and re-meeting.
