This guide is for the new and old(those returning to this amazing game). Below I will outline in steps on how to play online.

Did you install NOX from an Original Nox Cd, aka: Hard copy?
If "YES" read below. If "NO" skip to download version instructions.

1.) Install Quest. This will update your NOX client to v1.2b. This will allow you to SEE games.
->ftp://ftp.westwood.com/pub/nox/updates/NoxQEng12.exe


2.) If Installed correctly when you start nox this is what you should see.


3.) READ THE LOGIN SECTION BELOW the Download Version Instructions.


DOWNLOAD VERSION INSTRUCTIONS

1.) Download Nox here. http://www.noxforum.net/index.php?topic=3160.0
->DIRECT LINK-> http://www.filefactory.com/file/5a3b30 or http://www.contrib.andrew.cmu.edu/~awesie/NoxInstall.zip

2.) Install, and run Nox1.2bNoCdL.exe so you can play without cd. QUEST IS PRE-INSTALLED IN DOWNLOAD VERSION.


LOGIN SECTION

1.) Once quest is installed continue to multiplayer login.


2.) If you see this picture, keep trying new usernames and passwords.


3.) THIS IS CORRECT: Notice the Nox player count. Which can also be checked here: http://www.noxhub.net/who.php?sort=server


4.) Congrats, you should now see games when you click "green games".
 
If you still do not then you fail. Repeat steps until you do it right.


Did I leave anything out?

After following the steps above and getting the game up and running, I still couldn't connect to the XWIS server. It would just sit there trying to connect to Westwood Online. I ended up registering an account on XWIS (http://xwis.net/forums/?app=core&module=global&section=register), and then using that user/pass in the game, and it worked.

Please feel free to correct me if this isn't the right way to do it, but this is what worked for me.

Hope this helps anyone else who might be having trouble.

I know I mentioned this in another topic but my comment belongs here.

When you log in you will be prompted for a country.
Each username is unique for each country.

Therefore I could login as "philliyxx" in US and also in Finland.

Basically if you keep getting disconnected choose an obscure country.
