Championship Chess Pro 6.40 - User Guide and FAQScreenshots - More Details
There are two ways to enjoy the multi-player feature of Championship Hearts Pro. You can either play online via your Internet connection, or you can play on your local area network (LAN).
How to Play Online via the Internet
To play online via your Internet connection, select 'Play ONLINE' from the game's Multiplayer menu. The lobby window will open as you connect to our lobby server. Here you will see a listing of all the games currently being played in the Rec Room. At this point, you may choose to host your own game or join someone else's in-progress game.
Playing a game
Click on the 'Play Now' button on the left-hand side of the screen. The game window will come up, and you will be joined to the first available game in-progress. If there are no games in-progress, you will be hosting your own game and prompted to either change game options, wait for additional players or click on the 'Start Now' button to begin play (see Hosting a Game).
Hosting a game
Click on the 'Host Game' button on the left-hand side of the screen. The game window will come up, and you will be shown the Player Profile dialogue box. Choose the online game options that you wish to play with, and click OK. Your game window shows the other player(s) and the message. You are hosting a new game. Change options, wait for players, or Start Game.' click the 'Start Game' button to begin play.
Joining a game
When you connect to the lobby server, you will see a listing of hosted games, any of which you may join by clicking on the 'Click to join!' button. If the game has already started, a message indicating that the game is in-progress will appear and it will allow you to play once the current game has completed.
How to Play Online via LAN
While most players play in our online Internet lobby, you may also play a private network game with your friends. To do this, select 'Host LAN game' or 'Join LAN game' from the Multiplayer menu. If you are hosting, you will see a window that displays your IP address so you may provide it to the other players. You may start the game or change options while you wait for other players.
If you are joining, you will be prompted to enter the IP address of the host and the position from which you wish to play. You will need to wait for the host to start the game.
To leave a LAN game, select 'Stop hosting game' or 'Leave LAN game'.
The following options are not available during LAN games: Rated games, tournament games, ladder games, customizing your player image, and lobby chat.
