I'm trying to find the best way for you to be ever able to play with any opponent even if you're using a more secure network (firewall, proxy, lan, ...). :wink:

The game now enters in the beta phase. It means that it's not totally complete and bugs remain (even some I do know about). Those elements will be fixed in the near future.

Want to try iPuissance 4D beta?
1. Download iPuissance 4D 6 beta: http://www.beroux.com/download?id=10&version=unstable
2. Install the game.
3. Subscribe to this forum (if not already done).
4. Run the game. A user/password will be asked if you wish to play on internet: Use your forum user/password (those you've entered in step 3).

I've found a bug
I know some bug but I don't know all of them. If you find one or if you have suggestion, you can post them here.

Hmmm...

What do you mean? The bug correction phase is complete. The current version is supposed bug-free. That means that I don't know any bug.
