LAN for Duke Nukem 3D using eDuke32
Hello everyone, I'm going to set up a LAN game at school between me and a few mates when I get back from school holidays, so far here is the story:

Today, I bought in Duke Nukem 3D on my Flash Drive to play some after I had finished my IT outcome, suddenly everyone who was playing flash games got all interested, I came up with an awesome idea and we're going to try get an 8 player Co-Op or Dukematch going, so I thought I'd download Dukonnector, it worked to a degree, I managed to find out the IP adresses of the computers through that, found out all the ports Duke requires are all unblocked to my surprise, problem was, when I went to create the game, it tries to launch a command prompt window, Admins have disabled it so I can't use the command prompt.

I also tried NetDuke or something like that, I clicked host multiplayer game, it brings up a window showing me all the commands for eDuke32, but after i click okay, it shuts down eDuke32 instantly?

How can i go about hosting a LAN game and join them from other PC's with eDuke32 that doesn't involve a command prompt?

We're going to be having a very fun time now in IT classes, I can tell you that now

Thanks very much.

Read the "Multiplayer games" section of the JFDuke release notes, they work exactly the same for Eduke32

http://static.jonof.id.au/modsuppt/j...easenotes.html

So basicly the shortcuts of eduke32 would read like this for a 3 player game:

Host
EDUKE32.EXE /net /n0:3

People Joining
EDUKE32.EXE /net /n0 192.168.1.5 (You need to change the IP to the Host's IP adress)

Notes, The host must launch his shortcut first then the people joining launch theres,
