    Online playing
    I want to play online but how can I do that?
    There are 3 ways of doing this.
    1-You can play through gamespy (you can install it from your cym3 cd)
    2-You can play without gamespy but than you have to type in proporties of cym3 icon(so right mouse click, proporties, than you will find a place where cym3.exe stands there you have to fill in:
    --> if you want to join a game
    CyM2003.exe -join -ip IP -nickname \"NICKNAME\"
    --> if you want to host game:
    CyM2003.exe -host -nickname \"NICKNAME\" -num_max_player MAX -gamename \"GAME\"
    3-You can also play online when you download this nice little tool.

    If you want to play cym3 with gamespy and you have telenet please download these files first.

    Some general tips to reduce issues with gamespy:

    - Close all programs such as E-donkey or Kazaa. They take a LOT of bandwidth. If you use them while playing, especially when hosting a game, there will be a lot of lag and eventually some players will get disconnected.

    - Before starting a race, wait for all the players to be connected. Once the race has started, new players will take longer to connect and the host may lag (which in turn will reflect on all players)

    - If you have a firewall, open ports 17851 and 17853 in TCP, and ports 17852, 17854, 3033 and 3034 in UDP.

    - Remember to set your bandwidth in the game's internet options. It should be based on your UPLOAD limitations. In France for example, an ADL 512 line has an upload of only 64 kbps.

    - Try using the latest patch.

    no ladder play !!! :

    CyM2003.exe -join -ip IP -nickname "NICKNAME"
