Unfortunately at home I do not have Internet. With my neighbour we bulit up LAN, and were quite amazed when we heard about the coop mod (played doomIII, UT2004 in deathmatch got a bit bored). Downloaded, isntalled, we see each others multi games, but can not join. We both have 1.1 version. The error message says LAN games are restricted to LAN IP adresses. What does that mean? What goes wrong? How to make this mod work? Sorry if this question was answered before but I have not find any topic related to this issue. What shall we do in a different way? We start the game with the coop shortcut, we create a multi game mith the coop option listed, but the error message is always the same. We tried deathmatch also, the result is the same. How is it possible to work together? Thank you in advance for the answer,

You need to make a lan game and make sure you have punk buster DE-ACTIVATED. If you have pb activated it will keep saying that message. Good luck try that and it will be fine.

hi made a little error
ALTERNATE SERVER IS 192.168.10.2
kinnawill, than u, thank u, thank u. i did exactly what u said and now i can finally play far cry on my 2 pc lan.
why do we need to do all that with far cry? i have played bf nam, moh, ghost recon, and call of duty on my 2 pc lan without this problem.
anyway, its not a problem with the mod. do what kinnawill said. it works.
hey, I have a different problem than the one posted. I have installed the coop mod, and I can run it fine. But when it comes time to create the game "You must select a map to launch" is the error I recieve. I know it's not really an error, but the thing is, the two list boxes that would usually be used for gametype and map selection, are black, and when I click on them, nothing happens. I cannot select a map. I have checked through all of the folders and made sure the coop mod had installed everything in the correct places, and it looks as if it has. I have the cheatenabler installed as well, i dont know if that would be the reason why.. but any help on this issue would mean a great deal. I enjoy this game more than any other by far, and would like to be able to play coop over my LAN.
Nevermind, I fixed the problem, and in response to the play it with no patches. My problem was because it wasn't patched, after I updated to v1.1, everything ran fine. Minus the glitches in the mod. Hopefully soon to be corrected.
