all i can say is that Hamachi is better for Gaming ...
If u dont have the game u cant play it
It doesnt matter whether u r running pirated or original since both works
secondly hosting a server in nfs mw in hamachi / xfire is very tricky...no one from this forum knows it :(

One more thing is that NFS Carbon does not support LAN so u cant play it over hamachi

I am sorry I can't answer all your queries as I have very limited knowledge about Xfire & Hamachi.But I will just brief your rest of the points from the information that I have for it.Alright here goes.

[*]For playing games is it required to install the games i.e is there anyway by which on Xfire or Hamachi I can play games without having that game installed in my pc ?
You will need to have the game installed at all costs to be played over a network.Xfire is a messaging service I believe but Hamachi is just a VPN or a Virtual Private Network which allows you to host games on it & not load the games on it.You'll need to have the game that you want to play installed on your PC.


[*] My Friend has Need For Speed : Carbon installed in this PC but I donot have that installed in my PC, still can we play that game over LAN.
No.Without you having a copy of the game it won't be possible to establish a network connection.

That the only information that I can provide.I hope other users who are a regular on Hamachi & Xfire can guide you further.

I think normal broadband (256kbps) will do for gaming...
Actually i play only call of duty 4 online right now..
If u have it install it and we both can play now.
Creating a server means....means that.........A game server played over the is remotely or locally run dedicated server used by game clients to play league matches, or in public communities. Any video gameinternet generally requires a connection to a game server.
And NO they wont detect that u have pirated windows or genuine

# What is Hamachi ? (I have little information regarding Hamachi but can you just explain me with details)

Basically a software which sets up a network between its clients disregarding the distance between them . It makes you feel like you all are on the same network.

# What is Xfire ? (I have little information regading Xfire but but can you just explain me with details)

XFire is mainly used to keep track of your friends in the gaming community and also can be used tot rack stats like how many hours on what, what servers you played on , provides an easy way of joining servers etc.

# What is the minimum speed required to play games on LAN through Xfire and Hamachi?

You will need a broadband connection for any modern games unless its chess or any other board games. If you like FPS games then yes you will need a good connection. If you have the original game then my recommendation is not to use Hamachi. Just use the in game interface.

# For playing games is it required to install the games i.e is there anyway by which on Xfire or Hamachi I can play games without having that game installed in my pc ?

No, You need it installed to play the games.

# My Friend has Need For Speed : Carbon installed in this PC but I donot have that installed in my PC, still can we play that game over LAN.

No, the work around is to get the game. How to get the game is up to you.

# If I play through Xfire or Hamachi can Xfire or Hamachi can check whether my game is pirated or original ? (I am not asking of piracy I am asking this question to gain kwnolege so, plz donot banned me for this)

Neither checks your games version .

# Suppose I am playing through Windows Vista can Xfire or Hamachi can recognise whether I am using Orignal OS or Pirated OS ? (I am not asking of piracy I am asking this question to gain kwnolege so, plz donot banned me for this)

Again No.

# Which is better Xfire or Hamachi ?
They are two different unrelated products used for different purposes comparing it would be technically incorrect.

# If I want to play Need For Speed : Most Wanted game with my friends (Digitans) with Xfire or Hamachi (which is best) what are the thing that I have to do ? (Plz explain me in details)

Get the game. If you use Hamachi create a network and have your friends join in. Host the server . The have the friends connect to the server. I dont know the actual procedure for NFS but for COD4 its like that. You want to make sure that all of you are using the same version also .

Hope this helps.

How to create a network ?
First open Hamachi. Make sure that all players have hamachi running and are logged in to it. Each player has an IP assigned to them by hamachi It is shwon on the top of the program . the following screenshots depict the rest of the process. Clicking the Second icon on the bottom (the one like a triangle) gives you the following options.

As in the below image enter some network name and password.

hamnetcreateyg2.jpg


Open whatever game it is you want nd then click on Start Server . (This is COD4). Whichever system you are doign this on is the server. You must let your friends know that you are hostign and then they can join by connecting to YOUR ip which is shown by Hamachi on the top of the program. Look in my screenshot above. My Ip here is 5.47.58.126 . Ask your friend to join the server at this IP.

Your friends can join like this.

You must make sure that in their game settings they have "Enable Console " set to yes also. Then press the ~ key and type connect 5.47.58.126 and press Enter .

Well the rest.... Slaughter anything that moves. I hope this helps.

PS. I'm running two instances of COD4 on the same system. However the process is the same for multiple systems or whatever and explaining how to run 2 instances of cod4 is beyond your question. Enjoy.

Yes most likely. As I said I dont have NFS so Im not sure what the menu looks like but the summary remains the same. One needs to start a server and play on it and the others join the server using the same proces shown above.

Did ir require Premium Account to play games or games can also be played with Free Account.

No this feature is only require if you have more than 16 players in your network which you create. There are other features which are available to Premium users. The following is a good reference.
