heres an Idea ! Maybe you should stick to console gaming, if you ever wasted that much time to get a game going on at a lan.
What are you, the dunce cap of the pc master race? Company of Heroes used to have the worst patching system and if you had a clue about it instead of just looking for an internet put down you would understand his frustration. Who the hell defends something so bad it often required downgrading? Here's an idea, you stick to console gaming because speaking as a PC gamer I don't want that kind of shit. Relic being forced to adopt proper patching methods to be accepted on Steam was the best thing that happened to those games.
A white knight to the defense! whoppy f*****g doo ! not saying CoH had a good patching system, idiot, just saying him wasting this much time to get a game going at a lan, is really ridiculous and if he doesnt like it he should play on consoles instead. you dont have to screw aroung when console gaming. Now before throwing me an holy bible to my face, learn to read.
You can do many thing before attending a lan party. #1 be prepared, know the games that are going to be played. Know what patches are going to be used.
I know I've hosted many lan party and theres always an idiot without patches or the freaking games installed, then theres the guy with tons of viruses, sound card prolems, video card problems and OS crashes. (not even talking about those without powerbars, network cables, or their power cables for their own pc.)
I used to have a server wich people could connect and install all patches, of course nowadays this is impossible, because everything is on steam or Origin or worse.
dont know how old you are, but if you are old enough to remember coax networking, patching CoH is as easy as it gets compared to setting up a lan party with coax networking!
