    Okay, Ive a few steps, some of which wont hurt if already been applied, just do them again, as it works as a refresh for CM

    1) You must be using Compatibility Windows 95, unless you're starting a network game via a Saturn Version 7 game, in this case, you'll need a specific exe, which can be found on the SV7 feedback thread, then when you got it, windows 95 compatibility will work

    2) I assume you're using Hamachi program, this is a must for CM to work online, can be downloaded for free, an alternative VPN program work, like Radmin, but in fairness, Hamachi is the best one to use

    3) In your CM Folder, you should have a ~net file, this can be viewed when opened with notepad, in it, will have the IP number, now this quite often is your 192.168 blah blah number, and this wont work, therefore, copy the ~net file, onto desktop, and edit it (from desktop) changing the IP number to ensure it matches exactly whan your Hamachi IP number, which will be at the top. Once changed, save the ~Net (from desktop) then copy it and paste into your CM Folder, over riding - reason for this, is because you can't edit the ~net file when in CM Folder, as access is denied

    4) In your CM Folder, there should/will be an icon called 'IP' double click this, although nothing happens, this is what refreshes CM to Hamachi, certainly worth the few seconds work

    5) Always ensure you're running CM as Admin

    Let me know how you get on

    One thing to add... if you can't see a ~net file in your CM folder the the 'IP' exe in step 4) as administrator and it will create the missing ~net file

    A missing ~net file has caught me out a few times and results in an "unable to create network game" message

    tbh I didnt know that, but knew you had to click the IP exe for some reason, now I know, and same in that the missing ~net has caught me a few times, I think... dont quote me, it only appears from a fresh install via the original CD, and not via an ISO installation, could be wrong though
