If nickname is "weird" (ie special characters), account will not be created (or poorly designed). If this is the case, change nick before joining the online mode (not to be done once).

View General stats.

The online mode requires a port redirected to DS if going through a router. Once opened, enter the console port to use in the config.ini (your_port) or directly into the game before looking for a part (touch the port number to change).

Ip should be automatically detected, but errors can occur. If you do not have a router, leave the default port.
