Hosting Multiplayer Games
To host a game just go to the Host Game menu. There are many options here, so read over them carefully. There is a "Defaults" button in the lower right. When you press this button it sets up some good defaults for the current game mode. To add maps to the list simply press the "+" button above the map list.
Take special note of the "List on Master Server" option. This should be on if you want people to see your server. Without that option turned on players will have to type the IP address of your server directly to connect to it. Your IP address is listed in the lower left corner of the host game screen.
To host a game behind a firewall or router, you need to open/forward the following ports:
For information on open/forwarding ports see the documentation for your firewall or router.
The game doesn't look right; it doesn't look like the screenshots on the back of the box or the web page. Sometimes you will see large squares, textures aren't showing up or everything is a solid color or other graphical anomalies.
The first thing to try is to go into the graphics options menu in the game and turn the Fog option off. If this doesn't fix the problem then you may have to upgrade your video drivers. A list of video card manufacturers and their web pages are listed below. Go to the web page of the manufacturer of your video card and download the latest version of your video card's drivers and install them. This fixes graphical problems 99% of the time.

The sound in the game sometimes screws up. I hear static, the same sound repeating over, sounds play while the game is loading or sounds just don't play.
Just like video cards, sound cards have drivers too. The first thing you should do is go to the web page of the manufacturer of your sound card and download the latest drivers. If after installing those you still have sound problems you will need to run the Device Configuration program (found on the start menu in the folder the game was installed to). Go to the Sound tab and select "Miles Fast 2D Positional Audio". This should solve all sound problems, with only a slight loss in sound quality.
The game is running very slow.
The game attempts to configure itself when you first run it but sometimes it may configure wrong. If you feel that the game is running too slowly there are two things you can do to make it faster. The first is to turn Detail Objects off in the options screen. If it still runs too slowly turn the View Distance to Low. If you do both of these things and the game still runs too slowly then you will need to upgrade your PC to attain acceptable performance.
The game is way too hard! I can't even get past the first few enemies on the first map!
Have patience; this is not a shoot-em-up action game where you can run in, guns blazing. If after a few tries you still find it too hard you can adjust the difficulty of the game in the Gameplay section of the options screen. Setting the difficulty to easy should make the game a lot easier. Also setting the realism to Arcade makes the game play more like an action game where you can run around without worrying about stealth and one-shot kills.
