    Question Newbie needs help!

    Hi guys, i am very new to all this online gaming stuff.in fact, the only time i have played anything online was a few chess games in gamespy 4-5 years back.So i have a few questions-
    what is the minimum internet speed required to play online games?
    is there any special software needed?
    do the games have to be original copies?
    i have a net speed of 30-35kb constant using ZIP.
    What games can i play online?(can i play fifa or nfs)
    i hav a few friends in my local area who use the same isp,is there any special advantage to that, any way to directly connect to someones ip to play games if they have line from same hub?
    And most importantly, how do i get started?
    A lot of questions, i know, but i am sure many new guys hav similar problems.hope you patiently answer them.Cheers!

    you can use hamachi to form virtual networks and play ANY multiplayer game (using lan feature).

    your speed is enough but ZIP isn't good for gaming usually. their internet quality sucks big time.

    you can play Fifa/NFS using hamachi.
    DotA/Warcraft/Cod4/CS using garena.
    there's also a CSS server in BD.

    btw, you only need original games to play on original/official servers.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    Where do you live? I use Zip.

    If you wanna play CS or CSS, let me know. I can play FIFA too. xD.

    Umm, as for your question, YES, if you have the same ISP, it's already LAN-ed, meaning you can play without any laag.

    Just go to you Zip icon (the one after you connect to Zip), get your IP (changes every time you log in) and give it to your friend who's gonna lay with you, and use the Direct IP command for most games. =]
    Australian-I feel for ya bro gaming on a piece of crap you should be twice as good at any game you play. Thats really really a scary thought. Part of me does not want you to get a new rig.
