  • Ensure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements listed. Installing the Warpath™ Demo on a computer that does not meet the minimum system requirements can lead to unpredictable results.
  • Before installing the game, make sure all running programs, especially anti-virus software, are closed. Many installation problems are avoided this way.
  • If you are running Windows XP or Windows 2000, you must install the Warpath™ Demo via a user account with administrator or power user privileges. If you do not have administrator or power user privileges, please contact your system administrator for further details.
  • If you are running a firewall or a router, you may experience difficulties attempting to play the Warpath™ Demo on a LAN or the Internet. You must configure your firewall/router to allow the Warpath™ demo to access ports 7897 through 7898 for game sessions and port 29808 for the master matchmaking server. Ensure that TCP and UDP are enabled for all of these ports. If you do not know how to do this, contact your system administrator or firewall/router vendor for further information.
  • If your machine is running Windows XP with Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed and Internet Connection Firewall enabled, you may experience difficulties attempting to play the Warpath™ demo on a LAN or the Internet. To correct this, you should either install Service Pack 2 (SP2) or disable the Internet Connection Firewall from your network settings. Follow these steps to disable the Internet Connection Firewall:
    1. Click the Start Menu.
    2. Select Control Panel or if you are running windows in classic mode select Settings
    3. Select Internet and Network connections and then Network Connections. Or if you are running windows in classic mode select network connections.
    4. Right click on your Local Area Connection icon and select Properties.
    5. Click on the “Advanced” tab.
    6. Make sure there is no checkmark in the box next to “Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet”.
  • If you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), you may experience issues attempting to play Warpath™ over the Internet due to the SP2 firewall. To correct this, follow these steps:
    1. Launch Warpath.
    2. From the main menu, click Join Multiplayer Game.
    3. When the server browser comes up, press ALT and TAB at the same time. This will return you to your Windows desktop.
    4. A window entitled “Windows Security Alert” should be present. Click Unblock to allow Warpath™ to access Internet game servers.
    5. Click Warpath™ in the Windows taskbar. This will return you to the game.
    6. Quit Warpath™ by selecting Exit Game from the main menu.
    7. Re-launch Warpath™ - you should now be able to connect to Internet games.
  • Some video cards, often included with laptops, have a rotation feature that can cause the game to display sideways. Going into your display properties and disabling the rotation feature should solve this issue. Contact your video card manufacturer for further support regarding the rotation feature.
  • You may need to obtain the latest DirectX 9.0 compliant drivers from your hardware manufacturer’s website. Many technical problems can be resolved by simply updating your video and sound card drivers.
  • Depending on your system configuration, game play performance may be altered by changing graphical options in the Settings, Video Settings menu. Lowering the Resolution and Video Mode will allow the game to run faster, while increasing them may cause the game to run slower but look better. If game play performance is still poor, you can also turn down the Detail Level and
    Shadows on this screen. Remember to click Apply Video Changes after making changes to these options. Adjusting one (or all) of these graphical options can dramatically increase game play speed.
  • For optimal game play performance we recommend closing all other programs or applications before playing Warpath™.
