Hello,

you can play against CPU and human players, as you like.
There's not a lot of online players, but we already have about 100 games played every day.
Anyway, you can try everything with the demo version, so you can check that you can find easily enough some online people to play with.

I think you can use debit cart with Paypal (if it's a visa, a MasterCard, or, if you're in the USA, an American Express)

you can find people and let your MSN in this topic :
http://www.managames.com/Forum/ftopic312.php

But you can as well create a game at any time, and wait a few minutes for someone to join it (be sure that the connection test is working, else probably no one could join your game).
The best hours to play are from 15:00 GMT+0 to 23:00 GMT+0 (for Europe... In America, I'm not sure)

You start with an ELO of 1000, and a rank of "New player". But the ranking system is experimental, so don't be too serious with it.

i tried remote game and it said i couldn;t plus couldn't find any local or internet games. plus im sure i wouldn't know how to set up anything on my computer to be able to play. connection test failed. Telling me to go to wherever to change something won't help. I would need exact words in every detail

- no local game : it's normal; local games are games created on your local network (ie: if you have 2 PCs at your home)
- no Internet game : it's normal too, there's not always online waiting game
- connection test failed : you need to forward the UDP Port 4321 (and maybe open this port in your firewall)
- exact words in every detail : it's not possible, coz it depends of your configuration

You should give a try at the documentation :
http://www.managames.com/tennis/doc/Ten ... ml#network

And if you really understand nothing, you should look for general information on Internet (Google is your friend ;) )

try to follow the instructions for Quake 3, using the UDP Port 4321 instead of the port 27950 .

thats the port i used, not sure where you came up with the other one, the 4321 is the one is says to use, wgr614 v 6 is what i have.

Just for the heck of it, i selected like 20 others and tennis isn;t on the list on those either.

Hello,

yes, it's normal Tennis Elbow is not in any list, it's coz it's really not famous... All games in the list are retail games, often AAA games.

I had a look at the configuration of your wgr614v6 and it seems more complex than usual routers... :?
Sorry, I can't help you further, but routers are not easy to set up when you have one in your hand, and remotely, it's just beyond my capacities...

yup, your only chance is to find a friend with good computer knowledge who could go to your home, or to improve your own knowledge...

Hello,

yup, I'm a game creator, not a network engineer, so I don't know all routers available on the market. Actually, I never have any router, so I don't have any practical knowledge of them, only a bit of theory.

But I know the site which gives you a step by step configuration ( www.portforward.com ), and it seems easy enough to follow the instructions. If something goes wrong, I can't help you further. If I had your computer under my eyes, I could probably figure out what's going wrong, but unfortunately, it's not possible.

But Internet is full of forum with people willing to help you (when you ask nicely), and you may find someone to help you to configure your router, for example, here :
http://forum.portforward.com/YaBB.cgi
or here :
http://forums.speedguide.net/forumdisplay.php?f=38
etc, etc...
