Just to make sure... You meant Trackmania Nations Forever, right? –  Denilson Sá Aug 16 '11 at 16:58

I have had much better luck with Tunngle than Hamachi for games. Try it out!

If there is no channel for your game, just join another channel; it usually works.


The only bit of setup I've ever had to do with Tunngle (which I also had to do with Hamachi, along with many, many other things) is that some games (ex. Age of Mythology) will view your internet connection as your primary adapter, even though Tunngle sets itself up as your primary adapter in Windows. To work around this, you have to:

  1. Start up Tunngle
  2. Disable your primary internet adapter in the Network Connections settings
  3. Start up the game
  4. Reenable your primary internet connection

Check THIS step-by-step Hamachi installation & configuration guide, it comes with screenshots and detailed explanation. Should the link rot, here's what you want to do:

  1. Do not launch Hamachi after having downloaded and installed it.
  2. When you are asked, set the Hamachi network as a Home network.
  3. Press the Windows key and search the settings for "Network connections," press Enter.
  4. Press Alt then pick AdvancedAdvanced settingsAdapters and Bindings tab.
  5. Bring the Hamachi network to the top and confirm with Ok.
  6. Right click on the Hamachi network and pick Properties.
  7. Uncheck "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)".
  8. Select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and pick Properties.
  9. From the General tab press Advanced and disable the Automatic metric feature. Use 1 instead.
  10. Now launch Hamachi, power it on, register and pick ManageManage connections
  11. Pick Manage Hamachi for free and then login with your account (register if needed.)
  12. Go NetworksMy Networks on the navigation bar; click on Create Networks.
  13. Name your network and make it a Mesh network. Press Continue.
  14. Configure the network as you like. Select the Free Subscription and Continue.
  15. Take the network ID from the network list.
  16. Use it in the Join network button on the Hamachi interface.
  17. If you weren't asked yet, set the Hamachi network as a home network.
  18. If necessary whitelist Hamachi from your firewall.
  19. If necessary do port forwarding on ports TCP 12975, TCP 32976 and UDP 17771.

Please don't just link to an off-site guide, no matter how comprehensive it may be –  badp Sep 23 '12 at 13:51

Just create/join an Hamachi Network. You should be able to create and join games via the Party PlayOver a local network screen.
