You need “Teknogods Beta 17” for F1 2010 to work with virtual private network adapters like Hamachi and Tunngle.
You can download Teknogods Beta 17 from here.
First off, delete teknogods.dll entry from App_Init_dlls, this is only needed if you used the older versions. Otherwise skip this step.
Run F1 2010.
The one who wants to host should launch F1 2010 and host the game. Host does not need to do anything else, not even use the “DLL loader”.
Those who want to connect to a hosted game need to minimize their game by pressing “Alt+Tab” key and start the TeknoGods loader(DLLLoad) file in archive you downloaded earlier.
You can also use TeknoHelper to setup everything automatically, it is included in the archive.
How to Setup Everything With TeknoHelper
Execute the teknohelper.exe and you will see that the program has 4 checks in place. Get VPN/Get All filter, click the button and it will check for all the VPN software, you have installed.
Once it has found any VPN, it will be displayed in the window above. Select Tunngle/Hamachi,VPN of your choice and click “Set Adapter Key” that is if you are haven’t had previous version of TeknoGods Beta installed.
If you had previous version of teknogods beta installed on your computer, click “Clear Registry Key” first for your selected VPN software, once it has deleted teknogods.dll entry from App_Init_dlls, click “Set Adapter Key”.
Once the registry key is set, you will see a green tick underneath second check. Now click “re(Start) Loader” to execute DLLLoad.exe, it will ask you to launch the game in 30 seconds, so go ahead and do so. Once all the four checks have green tick underneath, you have set up everything correctly.
