I don't understand what I'm supposed to do! I found and connected to a computer, but I'm lost after that.

How do you win in multiplayer? how are you supposed to locate opponent's computer? scanning every possible machine dosen't show their location. Their logs don't show up on computers they've acessed, *Friend did NOT delete logs* so there is no way to get their IP.

I'm not gonna get arrested for playing this game am I? Cause I'd really love to play it, but I'm afraid I'll actually be doing something illegal. >.<

This game gives me freaks, and I have a pretty noobish question to ask. Is some amount of it actually illegal? Sorry for sounding like a noob, but it's freaking me out a bit... Thanks, and bye!
