I recently downloaded kega-fusion. Anyone want to try joining me in a one on one game?

Here is a link to the kega emulator bundled with the star control 1 rom: http://www.mediafire.com/file/51jqzd8d4 ... a.zip/file

Okay, i just thought to create a .zip file with sc1 and kega fusion emulator. It seems as if the site was going to allow me to upload this file until i got the message "file is too big maximum allowed is 256 kb". Is there any way around this? can anyone change this? the file is 1,063 kb.

External storage? Like a public Dropbox link...

A step-by-step guide for total dummies (like me) would be really great.

Doesn't seem too tricky. Download file. Open. Start emulator. Load game file. Make sure host has port forwarded. Set both sides to player-controlled. Establish connection. Figure out which part of the controls you're supposed to use. Play.

Did some research on this back when the file came up here. Now if only I wasn't so swamped in work that I haven't got the time to play, I would very much have liked to take Alliance up on their offer.

> Make sure host has port forwarded

That's probably the step that folks might have trouble with.

Unfortunately I can't give a step-by-step guide there, as the process varies from router to router.
However, in general terms, what you need to do is:
1. Connect to your router. You can usually do so by writing in 192.168.0.0 or 192.168.0.1 (or something similar) into your browser's address bar.
2. Log into your router. You will need the username and password for it in order to do so. If you haven't changed these details, you may usually find these details on a sticky note attached somewhere on the router itself.
3. Once you are 'in', look through the available options until you find the one for port-forwarding (it should probably be named something along those lines). It is usually a sub-option of the (possibly advanced) security- or firewall settings, but if you can't find it there, look around elsewhere as well to see if you can get a hold of it.
4. At this point, the interface varies from router to router, so I can't really hold your hand at this stage. You'll want to open port 5394 with UDP protocols for your computer's local IP address. You can find your computer's local IP address (in windows, at least) by opening the command line (cmd), typing in ipconfig, and then finding the "IPV4-address" within the resulting printout.
5. The port should now be open. All you need now is to find your public IP address (pages like https://whatismyipaddress.com/ and similar ones are useful for this), give it to the one you're going to play with, and then establish the connection in-game.
