Guide: play Fireburst in multiplayer over LAN / INTERNET
Hi there,
Good news to those seeking to play Fireburst over LAN or INTERNET.
I've accidentally discovered in console the command to open a multiplayer game.
You have to open the console ( with the "~" key)
** So, the HOST should run the command:
open giantbridge?listen?numberofplayers=2 (just an example).
The first word between "open" and "?" is the map name. Check below for the full map list.
Number of players can be set from 2 to 8.
** The OTHERS should JOIN with with:
open 192.168.0.3 (just an example. use the HOST's IP ADRRESS instead)
~~~~~~~~~~
I've encountered some bugs though:
** Players joining should run the command to connect several times, before or after the countdown. For some reason, it keeps disconnecting them untill the hosted game started. Just keep reconnecting and should work (reconnecting did the trick for me).
** If at the beginning of the race, you're stuck in the clouds, the host should exit the whole game, start again then try again to host the game.
** I've tried from both LAN and INTERNET, and it worked. I don't know what PORTS should be FORWARDED for playing over the internet, the host i used had DMZ (all ports forwarded). So, if you discover the ports, please post them here.
** The initial command had "?mpgame^mode=race?gamemode=FSGame.FSRacing" at the end, but i removed it since i noticed it works without it.
~~~~~~~~~~
** Full map list:

* RACING MAPS:
Airfield
Docks
FreightDepot
GiantBridge
HightowerMountain
LoadingStreamingMap
Oilrig
OldSewers
Refinery
Saltlake
StauDam
Warehouse
Waterfalls

* DESTRUCTION MAPS (i guess):
BowlMP
CanyonMP
DocksMP
OilrigMP
PlateauMP
StadiumMP

~~~~~~
PLEASE CONFIRM IF IT WORKS FOR YOU TOO! THANKS!

Dakaar Jul 13, 2013 @ 4:41pm 
how do you enter the command though?

even after port forwarding ive only been able to host when i choose play mp and it doesnt find any servers and it creates one. if i host by console noone can join....

this doesn't work for me or my friends :( we always get stuck in the sky or can't join at all.

@ bengoin, open the console with the key "~"
@ labitrinia: port forwarding on what ports?
@ aquarianPyhton: i've managed to get around the "sky-stuck" problem by re-entering the whole game when hosting (not just exiting to the menu, but quitting the game itself, then starting again, and opening the multiplayer game with the console command)
Dakaar Jul 14, 2013 @ 6:06am 
tried it with a friend. still couldnt get it working
megalodon Jul 14, 2013 @ 10:40am 
yeah, we tried restarting the game multiple times and all my friends tried hosting too, unfortunately could not get it working.

If one person goes to multiplayer and starts a lobby then all other players can use "join game" in the friends list (go to your friend thats playing the game click on the arrow and go to join game) This works on a lan (tested fine) to play with friends outside of your home network maybe hamachi would work since it simulates a LAN environment. Not the way you should have to do it, but it works so at least you can play
Ezekiel Jul 15, 2013 @ 4:38am 
it's unlikely that "join game" command would use hammachi's generated ip address. but i'm glad you got it workin via steam. my solution however jumps right over steam
