    Proxy Configuration

    The program will ask you to specify your Proxy Server IP address and Port number

  • If you have direct Internet connection (for example, via modem), then you must press "Don't Use Proxy" button
  • If you use a Proxy Server, please, ask your System administrator about the Proxy IP and Port numbers, enter them and press "Use Proxy".
  • You can change the Proxy Setting any time later by running ProxyConfig.exe utility.


    Hot Seat Games

    Hot Seat games are the same as Internet games. The only difference is that your opponent should be playing using the same computer. Hot Seat Games are good for training.
