Unfortunately, GameSpy Arcade is not able to find your installation of 1NSANE on its own so you need to browse for your game path (e.g. C:\Program Files\Codemasters\Insane). It’s essential to point it to the Game.exe (NOT Launcher.exe) so it will look like on the following picture. (Your installation path will certainly differ so don’t get confused by the screenshot)

Now close GameSpy Arcade and open your file explorer (Windows key + E) and browse for full.cfg (usually C:\Program Files\GameSpy Arcade\Services)

Windows XP users can jump down to the 2 nd part of this page (“Open full.cfg

CAUTION:

Users with Windows Vista / 7 need to disable the User Account Control (UAC) to be able to edit *.cfg files. The following link shows a few possibilities how to do it:

Furthermore, users with Vista should make sure they have applied Service Pack 2 and

installed all Windows Updates.

Open full.cfg and search (Ctrl + F) for “insane” like shown on the screen below. Make sure you change lateentry=0 to lateentry=1. There you also have the possibilty to change your ingame nickname in case your prefered username on GameSpy is already in use by another person (keep the quotation marks).

CRUCIAL INFORMATION:

In the majority of cases the rooms (running games) are not being shown to the chat lobby. However, if you properly edited the full.cfg earlier you are now able to “latejoinrunning games. The next two pages will explain how to add contacts and to join their rooms.

Next step is to click the GREEN DOT to open the playerspy list.

ATTENTION:

- If you latejoin a room and you don’t get into the ingame lobby (car / skin choice) but into

spectator mode whilst others are racing then wait until the round ends and everyone gets back to the ingame lobby.

- I advise you of not using any downloaded custom cars or tracks other than included in the TRM 1 Mappack. Due to incompatibility between players not having the same content the game tends to result in crashing on everyone.

The next two steps are conditional!

So decide yourself if they apply to you or not!

If none of them applies you are ready to play 1NSANE!

- Firewall:

To play 1NSANE with a firewall protecting your PC you need to allow inbound and outbound traffic like on the following two pictures (showing the Windows XP Firewall).

These are the ports that 1NSANE needs to be opened but if you are new to opening ports on your router then you better have a look in the owner’s manual. The next page might also help you setting it up right.

(I was told that nowadays DirectX doesn’t need a specific open port anymore, however, if you want to make 100% sure that you will be able to join and host properly I suggest you do open the DirectX port, too.)

To open the ports on your router’s admin page look out for options like “Port Forwarding” or “Virtual Server”. Another alternative is to enable a function called “DMZ” which I do not recommend since it allows all traffic for the specific IP-address.

On the strength of past experience it seems necessary here to explain how to find your local IP-address out. To do so just click on “START”, then “RUN” & type “CMD”, the dos-prompt will show up and you have to type “IPCONFIG”. The only line of importance is your IP- address now, usually the last number is what you need to know for your router’s admin page.
