Worms War Online
From GameBrew - a wiki dedicated to Video Game Homebrew.
This is a remake of Worms War, originaly created by Team17 for Amiga machines.
It was presented in the Dev-fr Coding Compo 2007 with Evolution theme, sponsored by DS-X, ranked 6th in the Game section.
A Manual Quick Start is available here (explanation of menus).
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).
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.
