    So, a bud and I that's living downstate wanna try to find a way to emulate a lan between our computers using maybe some type of software that will allow us to join a server on it, and then have it emulate via a game that we are are connected together on a local LAN connection... thus allowing us to create/host a game and be able to see each other from this software if it exists. Is this possible? I know the basic solution is to go buy the game and use its own internet server function to connect across the web, but at the moment I'm just interested in being a lazy ass and doing something interesting since i have a fetish for jerry-rigging computers to do my will :mamoru:

    I've used various small homegrown apps that did this very thing (i.e. BattleLan) and they all kinda sucked but that's all I had a few years ago.

    Then I tried Hamachi and it's brilliant. Very well made software that just works.
