Hello, I have 3 computers hooked to a switch. The problem is I cant just play the game in network mode without being online. Any suggestions? All pc's have tcp and ipx enabled. no firewalls, all updates. we've tried everything. rizzius

This is odd, i never heard of anything like this.
If you click Multiplayer and then network it should not ask for a internet connection. If you try using Direct connect then it might i'm not sure (i've got cable so i'm always online).
You could just try clicking stay offline and continue. If you have a firewall then it will pop up because some ports are needed for multiplayer. Just try to create a game and let others host them or visa versa and if the problem keeps comming up post a little more info.
