Hi, my friend and I would like to set up one-on-one deathmatches, but we
don't know how to connect to each other. How does one do this?

We just want to pick a level and face off directly. He lives in the United
States and I live in Germany.
In the year 3000

Easiest thing is having both two of you connecting to the same already-existing server created by someone else. "Callvote", if enabled, may allow you to change gametype/map...

Of course you can create your own server, but bad news it that you have to configure your router and firewall(s) to allow incoming connections on a certain UDP port first (usually UDP port 27960). After that, the rest is relatively simple: check your own current IP address, ( or similar site can help you), then launch the game and create your own server (multiplayer->create), then tell your IP to your friend and he will use "/connect ip:port", like "/connect" or "/jconnect".

I never want to be aggressive, offensive or ironic with my posts. If you find something offending in my posts, read them again searching for a different mood there. If you still see something bad with them, please ask me infos. I can be wrong at times, but I never want to upset anyone.
