Hello.

I just downloaded the latest version of Hardwood Hearts (build 89) but I didn't found the LAN play option.
It was removed from the software? Why?

Regards,

LAN= Local Area Network, I think you mean something else.

I'm talking about Local Area Network.
Hardwood Hearts allows you to play Hearts over a LAN (w/o connecting to a server), but I upgraded my game to the latest version and cannot find this option anymore.

Does anyone knows anything about it?

Thanks.

Yes the LAN is kind of cool if you have a local net and can play in a community. I did not check that feature out since the upgrade but will look for it when I can and in the mean time someone else may come online with the info.

I don't see it in the beta either Stefano. It's usually right there when you log your nick in there is a tab that says "LAN".

Marshall that is where you can set your own private game, you will recieve an IP# and then you message or send it to your friends. They enter the number and you can play online together with no one but who you choose. LAN games are alot of fun.

I think you didn't upgrade to the latest build yet.
Take a look on the same sign in screen in the latest version:

ok, ok I just thought he meant something else, apparently you can set up a LAN Game. I just didn't see the point if it wasn't rated " ya'll know I am a ratings freak. :oops:

Has anyone found out what happened to the LAN button?
I played it that way all the time until the new update.
Just hope the didn't do away with it.

Ya it's been dun did away with.

We're trying to move to a less complicated process for players.

We hoped that folks that played LAN would be okay with playing on the server as we plan to extend the functionality on the online side with some exciting stuff soon.

Can't play LAN anymore? The game is worthless to me without LAN. That's how my wife and I play it, we don't play online. This stinks.

You can still download the old version, I think it might still have LAN play.
