"Easy to use"-multiplayer frontend for GZDoom?

Post by Tormentor667 »

I wonder, is there an easy to use (for total noobs) frontend out there for GZDoom to start and play multiplayer games on a LAN basis?

Honestly multiplayer is a lot easier than people give it credit for. Especially on a LAN where port-forwarding isn't required.

Any launcher like ZDL can simply append a -join or -host parameter. The only thing you really need to be concerned about is having the same mods and load order to avoid desyncs, and the launcher makes that really easy because you can share a .zdl or other preset file (and send a zip file full of mods or something) so everything matches perfectly.
