Installing & Entering the Game
Open the executable file and install the game to a location of your choosing, preferably called 'BattleCarry'.
Launch the 'BattleCarry.exe' file, the shortcut on your desktop, or the Battle Carry shortcut found in your Start menu. This will pull up the current message of the day (MOTD). You will then be looking at the server selection screen. The game is currently multi-player only.
Click on the audio button to open your audio configuration options. Select those that best suit your hardware from the drop down menus. Defaults are set for best compatibility.
Click on the video button to open your video configuration options. Select those that you feel will run the best on your system. Typically a resolution of 1024x768 with all options set to medium result in best compatibility.
Find a server that appears to be populated and select it on the server browser.
Press connect and wait while the game loads and connects.
