I. Game Preparation

1. Install Serious Sam HD:The First Encounter
2. Get the TeknoGods Serious Sam HD Lan Coop Loader 1.0.

2. Rightclick your Hamachi connection and go to 'Properties'.
3. Select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' and click 'Properties'.
4. In the new window, click 'Advanced'.
5. Uncheck 'Automatic Metric' and instead set it to 10.


6. Apply and close all windows bar the 'Network Connections' one.
7. Rightclick the Hamachi connection and click 'Disable'.
8. Wait a couple of seconds and 'Enable' it again the same way.
I'm not entirely sure what it looks like in Vista/7, but a friend on 7 found it using these instructions, too.
