    I've been playing AA and I'm fully hooked onto it. Graphics are so nice.
    Was just wondering how to host a LAN game?
    Do I need to download a server patch or something?
    Cheers.:cheers:

    well, AFIK LAN games wont have honor
    but all you need is the server for all the people to play on.

    I know I need a host computer, got that, but the problem is that when I go to the multiplay menu there is no create game button or anything. This is for both LAN and internet.

    Sure, i host AA lans . Theres 2 files you have to be interested in. The server.ini located in
    army ops\system\, and and the RUN SERVER.bat located in the same folder.
    To start the dedicated server you must run the RUN SERVER.bat. But then nobody can join because the authorisation is turned on:sn ip: . So you got to edit the server.ini.
    There is also other things you have to change aswell. I'll post up the server.ini already set up by me, and all you have to do is put it in your army ops\server\ folder and overwrite the original, but try back it up first. To log in as admin, you must type in the console for eg: "open 192.168.0.1?password=4731" where the 192.168.0.1 is the IP address of the server, and the 4731 is the password that i put in the server.ini. to get to an admin screen press F12. to change a map to sfcsar for example, type in admin a_open sfcsar. you can get more info from the official manual you can get from the americasarmy website. If you have problems logging in as admin put the word"pass" instead of "password" in the above instructions i gave you... i normaly make that mistake . Oh and one more thing. If you want to log off from being admin, i always just kickmyself off the server:o looks funny, but im too lazy to restart the entire game, which is what other people do. This problem was in 1.9, not sure if it's still in 2.0. just change the extension from *.txt to *.ini in the file im giving you
    ENJOY!:shoot3:
