LAN server without internet? (TMN-F)

Hello,

I have an LAN-party comming up in a few weeks, and there isn't realy an internet connection there. Now i Figured out that you can put your dedicated in LAN mode, and that works fine.

Now the problem is, as soon as you loose internet, the client don't want to connect to ANY servers. Its just says: Stay offline, or go online (Witch isnt an option). When you choose for Stay offline you cant join a server (not even an LAN dedicated).

So is there any way to join a LAN dedicated server without internet connection?


Please tell me,

ThijsD

The client can play on LAN fine without going online... All you need to do is click Party Play instead of, umm.. Play Online..

Do you see the server on the LAN-menu if you are connected to internet?

Are you starting the dedicated with the /lan parameter?

If you see it on LAN depends on what ports you are using. When you use higher than 2360 normally you must go into the launcher - advanced - network, adjust the "port broadcast length" to what you need. I've got mine on 22 since my server runs on 2371 and my game on 2350.. So then it searches from 2350 and up to 2372 (2350+22).

what ports are you using? are your computers on the same workgroup or ip-range? does your computers "see" eachother on the network?
Can't you see the server on your own computer either?

Are you using the dedicated server for TMF ? Latest version 2009-11-19?

I use the default ports, Samework group and Iprange, and they do show up when i browse the network. Both Pc's are running Windows 7 (and i run the latest server version)

Update: I now see the server randomly, i only see it like 5% of the times.

so you are using the same ports for the game and the server on the same machine?

Try 2350 & 3450 on your game-client, and 2352 & 3452 on the server. If the server runs on it's own computer then this shouldn't matter at all.

If i run it on the same computer it indeed goes fine, but the problem is i got a Lan-Party upcomming so there are 60Pc's witch can join the server.
I did figure out that i might be Windows 7 problem. My friend tried it on a windows 7 and joined it on an XP, didnt work, but when he hosted it on XP and joined on Windows 7 it did work...
