Using a password to connect server

Hello guys,
as I was sharing the max-join password between our recruits, I found out many of them don't actually know how to use it. That said, I decided to write a guide.

There are a couple of ways how can you join a server using a password.

1) Direct Join - Server Browser
This is the simplest (and also the most time consuming) method to join a server using a password.
  1. Start your game
  2. Click on 'Join Game'
  3. Click on the 'Direct IP' button
  4. Enter an IP Address in the IP Address line
  5. Enter a password in the password line

2) Desktop shortcut
This is probably the fastest way to join a server using a password. Here is how to do it:
  1. Copy the existing shortcut on your desktop
  2. Click on the new shortcut with a right mouse button and select 'Properties'
  3. Edit the 'Target' line by adding <IP>?Password=<PASS> behind the Swat4X.exe path (Do not include symbols < and >)
  4. Save your new shortcut
  5. Start a game using the new shortcut

3) Undercover Admin Join
You can also use an application which I have developed for administrators to join a server. You can read more information here.

I hope I helped you.
