Ok here's a quick little guide. Presuming you are all connected on a LAN.

HOSTING THE NETWORK GAME

1) Go onto Preferences > Network and tick the box that says Run As Server. Add a password and configure the other settings if you want to. Press Confirm

2) Start a New Game

3) Choose the database to use. (All users must be using the same database).

4) Set up the league etc.. and once you have added yourself as a manager you are ready for other people to join.


JOINING THE NETWORK GAME

1) Click on Network.

2) Choose the database. Should be the same that the host is using.

3) Under Local Servers there should be a game listed which you should be able to click on to join.
