Hi, Ive been reading about and i know ill get a nOOb ripping for this, but...

Lets say ive downloaded the MTA VC server and client and i want to use it at the weekend for some 1 v 1 lan.

Can i start a server now and join it on my own, just so i know it will work?

And if so how do i find the server with the client?

It would be a nice feature to bring these two together as one program.

To join your own server, fire up the MTA client and put your IP as "localhost" (without " marks obviously).

To find the server with the client, you will need All Seeing Eye (http://www.udpsoft.com). I have had some reports of not being able to find the server whilst on the server itself, but other people should be able to.

I doubt they would ever be joined together because the extra code required would increase the memory usage of both significantly.

I remember hearing somewhere that some machines have different home addresses (hardly any, but a few). Also localhost is easier to remember than a string of numbers.
