hey guys, heres my story sad but true, I still play Crimson Skies. it an IP to IP game. I have been assigned a static IP. Running windows 8.1. I am connected to the internet through a netgear router. I have no idea which steps to take so my computer connects directly to the net without interferrance from the router. i also have a fast machine so I can host an evening with Atremis game.. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :D
