Hey folks...
I know this is not about "online" gaming, but rather network gaming. But since it wouldn't fit anywhere else, I post it here.

I have trouble playing Starcraft in our LAN. I installed the spawn copy, a friend of mine has the original CD. I can access his computer (file sharing) under windows normally, but his server doesn't show up in the game list. We both have 10 mbit NICs, and a 10 mbit hub. We both have the following installed:

NIC
IPX
TCP/IP
NetBEUI
NetBIOS for IPX
File Sharing

Please help!!! How can we get Starcraft to work in a LAN?

Thanks,
Ronald

try downloading freegameserver from it will use your tcp/ip instead of ipx, it should work right then.

Thanks a lot Jacob, but we didn't get to try it... My friend's monitor burnt out... http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/frown.gif so no more LAN gaming at all....


Hey, life's fair, right? NOT!

Cheers,
Ronald
