Installation Instructions: 

To install the game properly, one must have Unreal Engine installed on their computer (the game was developed with version 4.10.2). Download the zip file and extract it and you will see three executable shortcuts. Right click on Windows for each of the shortcuts and go to properties. Change all the file paths in the shortcuts to where the project was extracted.

For example, for the 'UE4Editor.exe - Server' shortcuts:

change the target,

"C:\<wherever I installed Epic>\Epic Games\4.10\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe" "C:\<wherever I dl'd the project>\ArenaSouls\MyProject3\MyProject3.uproject" DeathmatchConcept?Listen -game -windowed

to

"C:\wherever you installed Epic>\Epic Games\4.10\Engine\Binaries\Win64\UE4Editor.exe" "C:\<wherever you dl'd the project>\ArenaSouls\MyProject3\MyProject3.uproject" DeathmatchConcept?Listen -game -windowed

Remember, on the client shortcut, change the IP address to the person launching the server. By default, the client connects to local.
