*********** MULTIPLAYER - CONNECTING (JOINING A GAME) ***********
*****************************************************************

You can connect (join) a Multiplayer game of GREEN BERETS in
a number of different ways.

To play through Bungie.net, you must first register with
Bungie.net. A serial code is located on the back of either
the Myth II or GREEN BERETS CD. This serial number is
necessary in order to play for free through Bungie.net.
Consult the Multiplayer section of the Myth II manual, located
in the Myth II Manual folder of the Myth II CD. THe manual is
in HTML format, therefore, you only need a web browser (such as
Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to view it.

In the Multiplayer screen, you may also select OTHER, to join
games over your LAN or the Internet using TCP/IP. If you are
connected to a LAN, available games will automatically appear
in the righthand side of the Multiplayer menu. To join a LAN
game, click on it in the list, then click OK.

In order to connect directly to another player's game, check
Join by IP Address in the bottom left of the Multiplayer screen.
Type in the IP Address of the person whose game you wish to
join, then click OK.

cooperatively. To do so, you must Host a game.

left of the Game Options screen. Any Single Player levels that
you've played will be listed.

NOTE: Some players may experience an OOS (Out of Synch) error
while playing Single Player levels cooperatively. Because of map
sizes, the amount of scenery and/or the number of enemies, it is
recommended that you have a fast Internet connection (56K or
higher) and/or at least 64 MB of RAM on your system.
