Hamachi

Hamachi is a zero-configuration virtual private network (VPN) shareware application capable of establishing direct links between computers that are behind NAT firewalls without requiring reconfiguration (in most cases); in other words, it establishes a connection over the Internet that very closely emulates the connection that would exist if the computers were connected over a local area network. Currently available as a production version for Microsoft Windows and, as beta, for Mac OS X and Linux. In this case we can use Hamachi to emulate LAN connection between two (or more) computers and for playing online with friends.

How to play Battlestations: Pacific over Hamachi

First off. We will not delve into the reasons one would want to play this game over hamachi. Only how to do it. You will need to know some basic computer knowledge such as how to edit your registry, copy and paste. and what an IP is. If you do not know this much. Perhaps hamachi is not for you.

Step 1. – Install the Game – Obviously

Step 2. – Install Hamachi – Again, Obviously

(Also this step includes making sure hamachi is configured properly and you are on the right network. I will not jump into this at this time. I’m assuming you know how to use hamachi.) You should also do the Hamachi fix.

Step 3. – Force Games for Windows Live to use the hamachi IP

  • Load Registry Editor. Goto Start > Run. Type “regedit” and press enter.

  • Goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Software\Microsoft\XLive
  • Right click in emty background and select New > String Value.
  • Rename it to ‘ConnectionOverride’
  • Right click ConnectionOverride and click Modify
  • Type in ‘Hamachi’ and press OK

  • Close Registry Editor.
  • Check in game that it is using Hamachi IP (5.x.x.x). Load the game and press the ‘Home’ key > Personal settings > Network Information. The adapter should now be Hamachi.

 

If everything works properly at this point you are ready for step 4.

Step 4. -Get rid of that 30ms ping limitation.

WARNING!!! DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.  THIS WILL NOT WORK IN WIN7 AND MAY ERASE YOUR SINGLE PLAYER SAVE.

  • Apply the following registry edits for your OS:


For Windows XP 32:

  • Load Registry Editor. Goto Start > Run. Type “regedit” and press enter.
  • Add ‘TeknoGods.dll’ to ‘AppInit_DLLs’ in ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Windows’.

For Windows Vista 32:

  • Load Registry Editor. Goto Start > Run. Type “regedit” and press enter.
  • Goto ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/Windows’.
  • Add ‘TeknoGods.dll’ to ‘AppInit_DLLs’.
  • Add ‘1′ in ‘LoadAppInit_DLLs’.

  • Add ‘TeknoGods.dll’ to ‘AppInit_DLLs’.
  • Add ‘1′ in ‘LoadAppInit_DLLs’.

Notes:

  • If you have other entires in AppInit_DLLs separate TeknoGods.dll with “,”
  • The game may freeze when you quit, just go to taskmanager and kill the process from there or try pressing the home button.
