Does anyone know how to setup a local LAN game using ezQuake? I've tried simply starting a multiplayer game on one PC and then looking for it on another LAN computer, but it doesn't show up in any tab or server in ezQuake.

    Hello. The client doesn't support lookup of LAN games in the browser, but your approach is otherwise correct. You just need to know what is your LAN IP address and make other clients connect to that address.

    In case your IP address is external, try e.g. whatismyip.com, if it's internal, in Windows launch Command line (Start -> Run -> cmd) and there type "ipconfig".

    Then give this IP address to other people that you want to connect to your server. They will type this into the console in their client: "/connect <ip>".
