You need to modify the DNS settings for your domain.
And create an a record for your subdomain and point to the ip of 184.171.171.98
Then add the subdomain.domain.com to admin -> domain manager here.

do you want your forum to be games.chatguest.com

or www.games.chatguest.com  If so you would need to create a record www.games.

Umh! that www as A record is for main domain like www.chatguest.com. I said I need my forum to use subdomain like games.chatguest.com. You know the problem is createaforum no option for subdomain. I have onother forum I used simple steps from the forums hosting company in few minutes I managed to create subdomain that is forum.chatguest.com. But to createaforum I think only full domains are allowed and not subdomain. Am I right or wrong?

No you can create subdomains and point with a record.

Your games.chatguest.com is redirecting to www.games.chatguest.com for some reason subdomains shouldn't redirect at all to a www. version
