Click "Create Game" when you are in the main Earth Special Forces game menu. From there, you can setup your whole server before you are starting it. If your friend, or other people are unable to connect or find the server, it means either your firewall or router is blocking it. You should open the ports in the firewall, and or open the ports in the router in order to make the server visible for others and for others to join your server.
We're trying to play over the internet. I can't get it to host because I'm not supposed to turn off my firewall, but he says his are off and I still can't see his game open. What ports are supposed to be open to host?
Ok. Is there a way to just let people on that game without shutting down all of my firewalls? Or is that what opening the ports does? Because I'd rather not open my network to the bad people just so I can host games...so is there another way?
