To configure the multiplayer version, please follow the installation steps on all other devices.

WARNING: You can connect to each other with the exact same version of the game!

  • If your devices are in the same Wi-Fi network, do not need extra configuration.

  • All the other players have to select ‘Search for multiplayer games nearby to join’ and after than they have to choose the proper (similar) server-symbols suggested by the host (swap by arrows), and select 'Join the selected gameof your choice'.

  • After a few moments, you all have to be in the same lobby (server-symbols can be seen floating in the air)

  • Note: Please, check your firewall settings to enable Zephyrus to communicate through that network where the other Zephyrus instances are running!

  • If you don't have an available Wi-Fi, create your own local network by setup an android ‘Mobile hotspot’ also known as ‘Wi-Fi tethering & portable hotspot’.

Connect to the hotspot by entering the network password.*

Zephyrus prelude/demo network connection is available if the players are on the same LAN / Wifi. (We do not use the steam account for it. The network connection between Zephyrus instances across the internet is not yet available.)

  • The demo only can connect to other demo instances.
  • The full-version only can connect to other full-version instances.
  • WARNING: You can connect to each other with the exact same version of the game!

Out-game instructions

  • Check whether you and your friends are in the same local network.
  • Check your firewall settings to enable Zephyrus to communicate through that network where the other Zephyrus instances are running! (Generally, the firewall is the most common problem when the client does not see the server symbols in the game).
  • You do not need to input any symbols to find each other on the same network.

How to setup Windows version for stream software

Some streamer experienced that our current 1.4 build attached to OBS or other streamer software shows up thinner, means that a thin stripe from the left and the right edge is missing. The reason of it that the build is not built in full-screen mode.

To have the proper screen in your stream do the following steps:

  • At the shortcut of the game...

  • Properties

  • Target line: after "Zephyrus_demo.exe"

  • write (copy): -screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080 -screen-quality ultra

  • This will show the game in 1920x1080
