When you connect to the WPL lobby you will need to have a nick name, its your choice to select anything you want, but must place besides your name also your WPL number that is given to you, example ASDIC_4514_SUB. If you dont remember it see it in the MASTER LIST at (http://www.subclub.info/wpl/index.php?id=10 (click on MASTER LIST). A game is formed if in the chat room are 2 Silent Hunter players and 2 Destroyer Command players (minimum) and one of the 4 players is a BR or BATTLE REPORTER. This is called a 2v2 game, maximum is 4v4 game. When all is ok the host of the game must give his IP number example 45.68.12.2, this you will to write it down, to connect to the host if the game. When all is ok the host leaves the chat room to get the game online.

IMPORTANT!!! SILENT HUNTER 2 works only with 40.xx series detonator drivers. It will not work with the newest detonators 60.xx series. I have in my computer 40.71 and it works fine on newest games also. 

Installing the various patches the game will altered very much and has nothing to do with the original version of the game. Dont worry its normal that way, but its much more harder now for all you new players, so ADJUST!!!
