I want to hook up 2 PC's at home with Need for Speed 2 and play multiplayer. Both have modem (LT WinModem using COM 4 and other ISA using COM3).

Is there anyway to play multiplyer using just modems and the existing modem line. Do i need to buy some sort of cable and which one i need if i do have to get one. The game gives option of Serial Link/Modem/Network to use to connect to the other player. Can someone tell me how to go about.Thankxx

Cheers

You cant use the modems as stand-alone for this..

A serial "null modem" or "crossover cable is available at places like Dick Smith.

A network requires a network adapter to be installed in a spare PCI slot on each machine, and a cross-over ethernet cable to be installed.

Serial is slowest and cheapest, network faster but dearer
