Hi Everyone, I was hoping to get this working for Thanksgiving Holiday but had some issues with getting LAN game going. Want to introduce some family to some of the best RTS games of all time. So I'm hoping to figure this out before Christmas.
Tiberium Sun and Red Alert 2 run fine under wine via playonlinux, the problem I'm having is getting a LAN game setup, here is what I have done.
I have connected to laptops running Ubuntu 14.04 directly and also using a hub. At this point I would prefer the hub just because if I wanted to add another laptop for additional players the hub would be the best option.
I've disabled the firewalls on both laptops, given laptop#1 IP address 192.168.1.1 and mask 255.255.255.0, laptop #2 192.168.1.2 and mask 255.255.255.0
I'm able able to successfully ping the machines by the IP addresses I have manually given them.
I've added the IPX patch and set the override in winecfg and I'm able to see the IPX settingsscreen with 00 00 00 00: 00 00 00 00 00 00
So when I get to to the LAN Screen I only see myself and not the other machine/player. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've been looking at this for a few days now and I have not been able to resolve this issue.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm running wine 1.7.55 for Tiberium Sun.
