There's a Button 4 connecting 2 the internet in the Option-Menue.

What is it for?
Can I play online or something like this?
Is it possible to play it on LAN too?? - would be cool!

Please tell me!

No offense, but I wonder how many people actually btoher to search the forum for the answer bfore asking a question.  This has been answered at least a dozen times in the last couple weeks.

There is NO multiplayer capability.  It is a standalone game that runs on your computer.  The network button is to allow you to network to a second computer to use it's monitor for dual display of the game.  So basically running the same game on 2 computers, so you have more monitor space.  That's all.

Sorry for the rant.  Please search a forum before asking questions.  Chances are, they've already been answered.  Thanks.

just to be nice and complete the info, cuz after reading your reply he won't bother to search:

Actually it's 2 other computers, Introversion's idea is to let you feel like those ubercool guys in "hacker" movies, with 3 or 4 monitors in front of you all doing swirly things :)
Think "Tank" in the Matrix

and they are right. It *is* cool to be hacking away to the sound of the trace tracker and looking from one screen to the other to see all available info. :)
