I have been seeing from other simular posts that Hyperlobby is the best? Also, can someone give me a virtual tour as I am at work until really late and cannot play until tomorrow...

Is it like most multiplayer system like diablo or Microsoft Gaming Zone? You see game listed with number of players currently playing and such and you enter and you are in a lobby? Or do you just join and appear in the same world map as them? And how do missions occure? Just wondering.

HL is the most crowded and mature FB user interface out there IMO. No, it`s not like MSN Zone or Diablo. You start it up, create your user name and password (only once) and join FB lobby. You`ll see bunch of servers on the left, where you can see difficulty settings and players that are on it. You join and fly.

FB only? What of IL2. If not, where do you go to multi on IL2?

And when you get in and fly, is it primarily just a big death match? Fly around and try to kill and not be killed? Or are there COOP missions as well?

I'm still a little confused.

HL has both co-op and dogfights. there are also other game types, but i don't know too much about those. in co-ops, you get one plane and fly to complete an objective. in dogfight, you just fight other planes and when you land/crash/die you get another and keep on fightin'.

There are loads of COOP missions on Hyperlobby. You will struggle to find Multiplayer games on IL-2 though, most have moved over to FB

Other games are VEF, VOW and such like. you have to be in a squad for these, and have to register first. They are Virtual online wars.

Is Il2 multi available through HL? Or do you have to go somewhere else for that? If so, where is the most populous IL2 server/lobby system?

Ok I tried it at home here and I can play Il2 through HL. There was a whole 4 people in the server. Has this game died? I thought it was supposed to be the best ever. I know that FB just came out recently but I would have thought that there would be at least some kind of following. And only 222 players in FB tonight? That's pretty pathetic. Oh well I guess single player is still good.

Em... When I've tried to enter HL, I've been lead to another web page where a guy warns me about possible danger of spyware in using HL... Is this real, or am I being caught in a personal war between hackers...?
