Exclamation random players for multiplayer plugin ?

hey guys, i just installed a plugin that allows me to connect and play online, but i don't have anyone to play with. is there a place that has server ports and whatnot for different games? i'd love to play multiplayer with people (my brother doesn't want to.

the plugin is this: http://forum.pj64-emu.com/showthread.php?t=1973


if there isn't a thread or something dedicated to this topic, i'd like to take it upon myself to start a small room on my site for people to give out information for their matches.

I don't think so because that is TCP/IP rather than UDP, so you give your own IP address and ask someone to join while you have it open. Regularly providing such a "service" would be, well, irregular.

I know nothing of Hamachi basically. Does it go good with fried rice?

For me it required port forwarding yes.
I had to switch sides to who was the host to get it to work.

yeeeeah, that's what i was afraid of. my mom doesn't like it when i port forward, so i usually have to run hamachi for my games. hamachi is just another piece of software that allows you to connect to other people's computers online.

Hamachi basically lets you do anything that would require port-forwarding without actually port-forwarding , the problem is that everyone who connects needs to have it as well XD

Randomly, holy shet that post count bump
