Test Games and Getting Connected!

Recommended Posts

Hello there!
To get playing online, you need to join our Discord group and do a test game.  Once you join Discord you can ask a Vet to walk you through setting up and playing your first game.  Once you get a game in, you are "verified".  Verified people can join our leagues! (Or just keep playing exhibition games, if you like...)

Getting Started with Discord

Use this invite link to join DIscord:
https://discord.gg/H7vrytU   <--- this may be all you need!

Then once you have joined, if you need it, use this link to see our group...
https://discordapp.com/channels/@me/279827632479141889

Now:
1. Click the "NHL94" logo in the left column.
2. Next, click "#general" under "TEXT CHANNELS"...
3. Now  type "Can someone play me!!", or "Exis"... someone will help out soon enough.... 

FYI, "Exis" are what we call our pick up games...

I adapted an earlier post I had made cuz I figured this will keep coming up.  We can point new guys here to get them connected with Discord...

why's this in the editing section? :D moved to "Welcome Rookies" section

 

Although it occurs to me that it's not too clear what the difference between the "Welcome Rookies" and "Getting Started" sections are

Okay, so discord is easy enough to use. Connecting to someones server or having them connect to your server is not. I have followed the instructions on the NHL94.com page to the letter and nothing works. Could you please make a more detailed or up to date version?

There is a write up here, halfway down.  But you are right, it is out of date:

NHL94online Hamachi Setup

The Hamachi part is good, but the "Playing The Genesis Version Online Using P2P" is past the expiry date. (It uses an old version of Kaillera.)

That said, it is waaaaay easier just to go to the DIscord #general group and say "exis", and get a Vet to walk you through it.  One walk through and you should be good-to-go.  In a couple days you will have it down pat.
