Um.. just Unzip
it to a directory, run it and off you go!
Find a friend on
the net. One of you goes to NETPong!->Listen and waits. The other
goes to NETPong!->Connect and enters the IP ADDRESS of the other persons
machine then clicks ok. Then sit back n get retro. Control the paddle
with your mouse. The object is to hit the ball back...
If you don't know your IP address to give to the person who wants

(or in NT its ipconfig)
enter and a little window should pop up telling you what your IP is.
Please note: If there's alot of net lag between you and your oponent
it will be slow and probably unplayable. Its probably best played
on a LAN. (Altho I've had some fun games with ppl on the other side
of the planet)
set the speed select Options from the NETPong! menu and adjust the
speed til its just right. Please note that the server controls the
speed for both ends.
I started to write
this a loooooong time ago to see if I could get a program sending

It's not very exciting but there was something wierdly addictive about
it so I thought I'd release it. I very much doubt much more work will
ever be done on it. It's basically just a test but it should lead
to other net stuff in the future.
Let me know if
you like/hate it!
notes: Had requests for speed control. So here's a verion with a speed
