Anomaly is a client/server game. The current implementation works best for LAN play. While it will work over the Internet, latency and bandwidth may be an issue. As well, while the game allows an unlimited number of players to join a server, it is best to keep the number of players relatively low, around 2 or 3. The player with the fastest computer and best network connection should be the server.
Start the game by running anomaly.exe.
Server: Select a level, and press Start Server to begin.
If you have Windows Firewall enabled, make sure to tell it to unblock.
You may need to reset the server once if this happens. To determine the
server's IP address, start a command prompt and type ipconfig.
(Warning: If the server is behind a router, clients may not be able to connect. The game uses TCP/IP port 4262)
Client: Type the IP address of the server, and press Connect. The server must have started before attempting to connect.
