How do I type in the ip including the port number?

If anyone wants to run this in multiplayer over the internet as I recently did for a game night, the ports you need to forward are 2322 and 2323. It may only be one, I'm not sure, but forwarding both did allow a surprisingly stable and effective internet multiplayer game!

If you want to run it on a windows 10 machine, do not bother installing it. Just mount it using a virtual drive. Open the "Life" folder and just open the "life" application. It will jump right into the game

It opened with Virtual Clone Drive mentioned in these comments, but I got an error saying it isn't compatible with 64-bit windows. Any tips?

I was able to download the Virtual Clone Drive that DisneyGirl spoke about but how do you use it to make this download to work? No archives found is all I get when I try to extract files.

I got it to work. The link for the Virtual Clone drive no longer works. I found the Virtual Clone Drive here:

I tried to run this, but I can't get the .iso file to open. I downloaded one of the files they said I needed to read .iso files, but it still won't open. What do I need to do? Do I need to burn it to a disc for it to work?

What can i run this in?

@Razor, i think you would go to options and wherever it says English, you would adjust to your language. That's if they have the option to change it to french.

Je pense que vous iriez aux options et partout où il est dit anglais, vous vous adapteriez à votre langue. C'est s'ils ont la possibilité de le changer en français.

Best version of life. I run it in windows xp pack 2 for the best performance. It has a bit of lag for certain things, but the gameplay is identical to back when this was new.

Razor 2019-03-09 -1 point

Hi, how to set french language in this game ?
