Steaming My Lan
NS v 3.0, steam, and LANOkay, when the STEAM-only NS comes out, what will it mean for dedicated and listen servers playing on a LAN, 100mbps, but with really crap internet connectivity.
What will my LAN buddies have to do to connect to a STEAM version of NS on the LAN? Will they need to have STEAM and all updates to play on the LAN only, and can the server be set up so as to avoid this (all but 1 have crappy internet due to 30+ year old infrastructure).
What advantages does STEAM even have to offer to LAN server or people who can never get broadband (again, old infrastructure and no interest amongst the ploiticians when it comes to fixing it) ? Or am I just going to get frozen out of NS altogether by this improvement?
