LAN-only play

Question

Hi,

 

As part of an after-school club, we want to have a big LAN battle with Red Alert.

We have some standalone dual core Laptops running Win7. They have no Internet access. (THey are connected a LAN that we set up with some cat5 and a hub.)

 

Can we use this software? I downloaded the Installer, installed and ran it, but it wants to download updates when I run CNCnet

Is there a way of bypassing this because we don't want to play online - only LAN.

 

Thanks in advance

Hey, thanks for the tips guys,

 

Just for the record, I took one of the laptops home and let it update.

I then copied the RA folder from that laptop to the others.

 

Running RA95_spawn.exe allowed me to do what I wanted, - that is, go to multiplayer and then network.

We've had some great massive LAN battles already.

 

Cheers!
