no no no. i cant run LAN games to test custom maps i've made. i load them up, then it crashes. i've tried it on many maps and even FH maps crash.

USUALLY, that means there is a file out of place.

sounds like a port forwarding problem to me, you should check the link that Steam posted.

but as firelord said in that thread, don't open all ports, just the ones that bf1942 uses.
