To prevent any "I can't host, please help" Threads, there's a short tutorial here:
One important thing:
If you've got a firewall you need to allow full internet connection for CarnageContest
1. Hosting for everyone:
The most important thing here is to be able to forward a port to your PC.
To do so you need the password of your router and the IP of your router (normally 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1).
Pro has written:
To see your router's IP:
1. Go to start, and then to "Run" and type in "cmd" (without the quotation " marks).
2. you should see a black window pop up, type in "ipconfig /all" (without the quotation " marks).
3. it will list your router's IP next to "Standard Gateway"
4. now you know your router's IP, and you can close the window.
To access your router control panel
1. Open a webpage browser like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox etc.
2. Type in your router's IP in the browser search bar. JUST the IP, do NOT add "http" or "www" before it! example. IMG: http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/2483/simplexr.png as simple as that. Then press 'Enter'.
3. you should see a login window which requires your username and password. If you do not know these, try googling your router's model name and try to find it's username and password.
4. if you succesfully entered your router's control panel page then your done! now you should go to your options/settings and Portforward to 36963 UDP (cs2d's & carnage contest's port)

How to use your router control panel is not easy to explain, because it's different on each router.
The only thing I'm able to tell you is that you need to search for something which is called like "NAT preferences" or "Port preferences". You need to add a rule there where you forward Port 36963 UDP to the IP of your computer.
Then you're able to host CarnageContest games.
2. Hosting for your friends:
You want to play online with your friends but you're not able to forward ports? There's an alternative which works without hosting ports, but only people who install the same tool can play with each other.
The tool I'm talking about is called Hamachi. I suggest you to use Hamachi 1.0.1.5 which is outdated, but the last version that works correctly.
-Download Hamachi and install it.
-Start it, then you should have a window like IMG:http://thekilleddeath.endless-aerospace.de/graphics/tutorials/Hamachi1.png
this one.
-Click on the button down left.
-Do what the tutorial says.
Now you have two possibilities:
1. You need to create a network for you and your friends:
Click on the button with the triangle and click "Create a new Network". Use a name which doesn't exist (like "CarnageContest123123123") and a password which you will give your friends.
2. You need to join an existing network:
Click on the triangle and click on "Join an existing network". Use the name and the password given to you by your friend who created a new network.
Now someone in this network can host a game. The others need to copy his HAMACHI IP (you can see it in Hamachi) and use the "Connect to IP" function of CarnageContest. Enter the hosters IP there and Join.

Lol, I've been using Hamachi for some years now, and I've never had any problems with hamachi being a virus... I think it's not.
Of course you can change the server name, just change the field for "NAME" when you click on Host in CarnageContest
btw: Thanks Pro, I knew I forgot something... do you mind if I add it to the first post?

I dont like how DC made the servers work you can not join unless the game has not started which it is hard to find these servers you could atleast spectate

well... it commonly works this way for that kind of games.

of course it's hard to find a game in the right state just by randomly opening the server list. there are also not as many players as in CS2D.

you should play this game with friends and people you know in first instance. use a chat/instant messenger to organize.

If anything fails, but you have to be sure you've done all (to be true, you can't be sure have you done all you could)

there is possibility that your ISP is blocking all ports that you forward. Only allowing internet, and other default ports to be opened. (maybe due to security idk)
That could be problem with my freaking internet.

i cant host any server, nor CS2D nor CC.
i just changed ISP, and can't host servers anymore.

contact your ISP and ask them if they can open all your ports. they can charge you for money to get extras because sometimes they are assholes. but this solely depends on what ISP you got.

thats exactly what i was thinking, only i dont need all ports, they can just open 36963 with all the defaults.
btw my ISP is wireless >.<

Remember that:
• If you regularly play the game 8with no 10-secs break), even when you loose, keep pressing "Ready" and don't wait, no one will join because it's not allowed to join if players are playing.
• Your server may have a name that is not 'attractive' and interesting.
• It may be laggy.
