A SiMPLE Network Game For Two Computers
Space War is a two-player action game that takes place in outer space. The two players battle each other with their own separate computers to see who will rule the universe! The game can be played either as a two-player game (with each person playing on their own computer over a network), or as a single-player game (requiring only one computer and no network connection).

For added realism, first download this "Space.jpg" file and save it on your desktop.
Playing the Game (Single-player Mode)
Before the game begins, you will be asked for the IP of the "other" player's computer. If you wish to play the game as a single player, there won't be an "other" computer. So just type anything (1-7 characters long) and press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.After the game begins, use your mouse to aim and shoot. The first player (you or the computer) who scores ten kills is the winner. To quit the game at any time, just press the "Esc" key on your keyboard.
Playing the Game (Two-player Mode)
Before the game begins, each player will be asked for the IP of the other player's computer. (If you don't know your computer's IP, just run this program and it will tell you.)
[Suggestion: If you plan on frequently playing against only one particular computer,
you might want to create a one-line text file (named "IP.txt") on your desktop.
In that file you can store the IP of that other computer. If the "Space War" game sees that file,
it will read it to obtain the IP value. This will free you from having to type-in the
IP for that computer each time you want to connect to it.]
After the game begins, use your mouse to aim and shoot. The first person who scores ten kills is the winner. To quit the game at any time, just press the "Esc" key on your keyboard.
The Windows Firewall and Other Such Annoyances (Two-player Mode Only)
If you are playing "Space War" over a network, Windows is probably going to think that the game might possibly be a virus (even though it definitely isn't ). So you're probably going to get an annoying "alert" when you try to run the game. (And if you're using any anti-virus software, you're going to get even more such "complaints".)
Just let all of them know that everything's all right, and that it's OK for them to let you run the game.
May The Force be with you!
