Be sure that you entered the correct IP Adress.

  • Press "Join Game". Re-Volt will now search for the game.
  • If Re-Volt doesn't find the game the first time, press Space and give it some time to search again. If the game doesn't appear after 3-4 searches, then you may contact the host and hear what's going on. If you have found the game, press Enter and write your name and choose your car.

You should now be able to play!
