Twisted Metal 2 PC multiplayer - now on Windows 8!

I found a way! Tested on Windows 7 and 8!

You can play online or in LAN with this quick fix. Online play through Hamachi is possible, but I recommend Tunngle.

Installation:
Install Tunngle and register.
Use the TMA release of TM2: extract it somewhere
Extract this archive into your Twisted Metal folder: IPXWrapper
This is an IPX wrapper, designed to tunnel IPX packets as UDP packets. All of the players must have it.
Run directplay-win32.reg if your system is 32bit or directplay-win64.reg if your system is 64bit.
To finish of the installation, make start.bat file containing
Code:
@ECHO OFF
set __COMPAT_LAYER=Win95
TM2.EXE 


inside your TM2 folder
You can do that by creating a text file, pasting this in notepad and saving, then renaming it to start.bat

Configuration:
Run ipxconfig.exe from your Twisted Metal folder and select your Primary interface, then press ok:
If you want to play locally, in your own LAN, select your lan/wireless card
If you want to play online, select your Tunngle or Hamachi interface

Play:
Start Tunngle, find a Twisted Metal 2 lobby and connect.
Open the game by opening start.bat
Select multiplayer, then select IPX (tcp/ip doesn't work), then create or join a game!

If this is true, I would love to test it with you.

My AIM is Djmugenx and my skype is kilrgrn. If neither of those work could you PM me and we can try and work something out?

Alright so I downloaded and installed and did pretty much everything, and I love the skins!

But when I start a singleplayer match it crashes.

So, do we have a verification now that it works or not?

The Kali alternative is really and absolutely a dud. It will never connect and despite using a IPX Wrapper for it, it's a no go. While I did get as far as through TM2PC to make a lobby and play with myself through that way. Without Kali. There's nothing I can really think of on how to get others into it.

This will be a shred of hope if it all works. If it doesn't then TM2PC is impossible on Win8.

Alright people. I confirm that.
I just had a game with my friend using Hamachi.
I'm using windows 8 32bit and what I did is I got the game from Here

I got the IPXWrapper provided by Andrej
followed the steps he mentioned, and it simply worked.

last time I tried it with TMA's version of TM2, it didnt work, but back then I was using tunngle and I'm pretty sure I did something wrong.

Anyway, if anyone wants to download the torrent, I'm seeding. and if anyone wants to try it then just hit me up.

This is fucking awesome.

I believe so, since it did on win8 which seemed unlikely.
It wouldn't hurt to try, we can test it!

It works on Windows 7 I can confirm that. It works pretty well too. The IPX wrapper can also be applied to other IPX games, just as a heads up.

Use Hamachi, disable firewalls and figure out who can be the host who works for everyone because some routers make it impossible to host.

Also forgot to mention, make sure Hamachi is your primary network both for the IPX wrapper and your network settings.

Aaaaaaaaaaand Welcome to TMA. Triple/double posting is definitely a no-no. New people most often times don't know that so we let it go for the most part. 

And what we mean by "edit" is the "Modify" tab that you can use to add to an existing reply. The word edit is a leftover term from the previous TMA site.

So yea. Have fun!
