Re: I little guidance please

On modern routers you need to port forward to get Myth hosting to work directly. You can google around a bit about this or look on the Project Magma forums for some more info. Alternatively, a feature in the Myth 2 1.8.1 beta allows a fallback proxy through the metaserver which allows anyone to host...

You should actually avoid using 1.8.1 gameplay actually as there a few known bugs (as noted, it's still beta). Just ensure that at least one person in the game is 1.8.0 and the rest can be 1.8.1 or whatever if desired.
