    Joining and creating games

    In this section will be explained hot to join a new game, creating your own game, private games and finally, Gold games.
    First off, you need to know where to go regarding any game. On the website when you login/load the page you will see five headers with the second from the left being "Games" this is where you need to go. Below is an image of what this looks like.

    Once you have pressed "Games" below you will see 3 new sub-headings. See below on information on these sections.

    This section is self explanatory. This is where you can view games you are in.

    This Archive section is where games that you have archived have moved to.
    To archive a game, you need to press the small "i" button located in the same line as the games title (see below).

    Once you have pressed this button, a new display will appear showing the information of the game including all the players that are in the game (on the righthand side), the scenario, game ID and open slots etc. At the bottom, there are two buttons; "Play" and "Archive", naturally to archive the game, press archive (see image below).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Next will be explained how the "New Games" section works. In this section you can join new games or even create your own ones.
    To join an existing game, you can simply scroll down once you are on the page and look for a game that suits your needs or if you already know the game number/ID you can simply type in the game number in the search bar (see image below).

    However, if you are searching for a specific type of game, you can use the "search options" dropdown which will reveal some options you can choose from to search for the game you wish (see image below).

    If you are trying to create your own game, you can simply use the "Create new game" option.

    [Blocked Image: https://i.gyazo.com/5e455693ca7200980462c3c287d0d1dc.png]

    After pressing this a new page will appear with all the options for creating a new game of your choice. We will go from top to bottom of the page.
    Firstly, you must give your game a title and if you a wish, you may also add a description (see image below).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Moving further down, there are the options which will decide the game features and scenario. The top option lets you decide whether you would like it to be a standard game or a frontline pioneer game, however if you are not a Frontline pioneer, you will not have this option to make or join frontline games (see image below).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Next up we have the Elite AI option, however this is only for those that intend to make the game a gold round and want the AI to be more difficult and smarter than usual. If you have High Command, gold rounds can be created and joined for free.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Next, there is the "nation select" option. This lets you decide whether you wish yourself and others to be able to decide which nation to play when you join the game or whether you want it to be totally random.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The next part is also self explanatory but I will go into it anyhow. The following option after Country Selection, is map selection which lets you decide which map you wish to make the game on. The chosen map will be a slightly darker shade as the other(s) once selected.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The next option lets you decide whether you wish your game to allow teams or not. You can choose to have either 2 or 3 teams, but selecting this will make it a Gold Game so make sure you have Gold or High command before trying to make a game with teams.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    At the very bottom, you have the choice to decide how many people you want to be able to join the game, with the maximum amount of users depending on the type of scenario map you have selected with 2 players being a minimum.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Last but not least, there is "advanced options" that allows you to place a password on the game which you can then give out to friends or family to join you. But please be advised: playing with friends or family on the same internet connection will be bought to a Game Operator's attention and will be investigated due to several accounts playing with the same IP address in one game.
