We run a small Internet cafe in a developing country. The connectivity is appalling, we currently pay USD 1500 p.m. for a congested 64kbps line. We want to start games but only over the LAN due to the narrow connection.

I am a novice in this area. We got someone to bring back two popular games which were supposed to work on a LAN but what he brought back were:

Warcraft Battle Chest 2, dated 1999. I figured this out but the IPX connection does not appear to work; when one user craetes a game another user sees it, but cannot join. It hangs in "Waiting for a response". One forum I went to said that I should downgrade to Windows 98. Plus, it needs one CD for each user, not a LAN version.

Counter-Strike Conditiuon Zero. This appears to be set up for individual play or online over the Internet. You can' copy the disks. It does not seem to be set up for running multiple players over a LAN.

Can anyone advise me what to do. Much appreciated.

Hi leemingd,

For a start, download demo version of quake 3 and unreal tournament ... I am not sure about UT but quake allows you to run multiplayer games on a LAN in demo version and the game is quite popular ... however demo version offers only 4 arenas

Once you get some money, you can explore more multiplayer games ... I recommend that you review the game and try the demo before you actually purchase it ...
