Are you getting any errors? What exactly is the problem, can't people connect?

lemme tell u exactly wat it is tat i do and where my error lies - i go to option set local or w.e and then i go to start game and start my game
and im trying to get my cousin to play with me over lan and when he presses "request servers" under lan, nothing shows up as if there were no servers - and we both have the fix (if tat changes nehitng)

i set everything to local - my cousin's computer and my compnuter and i start tteh game and when he requests he dones't get ne servers and we tried it the other way around and it didn't work either - WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?!!?!??!

Well, apparently the only servers you can see when you request for them on LAN are the ones that are using the default port 23073. Servers with custom ports won't be listed. (Source).

So, you'll have to try and do it this way; Type the persons Ip into the Ip address field. If you don't know how to find out your Ip, go to Start -> Run -> Type 'Cmd' -> In the black box that comes up, type 'Ipconfig', or you can go here. Then, click Join and hopefully you should join the game.

Please tell me if this works so I can add it as a solution to the Official Problems list.

if ipconfig doesn't owrk, type winipcfg isntead.

well, the ip thing is not rly the problem i think - i pinged his cmomputer from command prompt (or w.e) and it worked and the night b4 i even shared a folder on my computer to b accessed on his comptuer and all worked out...but (strangely) the requesting doesn't show ne server - but if wat u say still could b the problem - where do i type it in!??!

Read my post again. I never said the Ip was the problem, I was telling you how to join the game.

Take your finger out of your nose, or out of your pants for that matter, minimise the porn and read my post carefully :)

(last comment by me i didn't read ur first comment so nvm the question where to type tat in) it dones't work, no and i did use ipconfig to figure out his ip and i did try to directly join server...

If you tried everything I wrote in my post, then I have no idea, sorry :)

August 31, 2004, 2:37 am
yes i did...and im so sure tat tats exactly wat im supposed to do (and i tried it on my sister's computer and it works (but she doesn't play soldat so its no point) and it worked there but thnx neways...

hey omg it (kinda) works - my cousings computer is fast so we set all his graphics/sound/performance or w.e to highest and i guess tats wat messed it up cuz now we changed it back to see if it works without it and it did (kinda) - i requseted servers but noting came up so i typed in his ip address ...again... and it joined - but we can't play tonight cuz its late so we'll do it 2morro...im so jhappy - YET - IF NEBODY NOS Y IT DOENS' SHOW THE SERVER WHEN PRESSING REQUEST SERVERS PLZ TELL

I don't think it has anything to do with graphics. I just think you didn't do it properly the first time.

Also, it would be nice if you wrote coherently, so I don't have to read your posts twice..

Okay, if you want to play lan, just get one person to host a game that is lan, and get the other person to type localhost or as the server ip.

localhost doesn't work and my request button aint wokring either but when i type in the ip address it sometimes works...

September 1, 2004, 2:50 am
localhost and are both really the same thing -_-

but as long as it works, then have fun playing!
