I'm sorry I have to start by a not-so-friendly note but:
I've tried multiple time and failed each time...I can't see what I'm doing wrong.
Neither can we!
Simply saying "it doesn't work" is not helpful. If you want us to help you, you have to help us a bit.
As it is, I have absolutely no idea what your problem might be. I can only guess.
And my guess is: it is actually working just fine. Did you try the "Connect by IP" button?
Anyway, here is a step-by-step instruction for the simplest LAN server:
- Start the MWLL Launcher
- Click Configure
- Fill in Server name
- Change Server port to 64100
- Add maps to your rotation
- Take note of the path to your Configuration file
- Save and close
- Add sv_lanonly=1 to the top of your server.cfg
- Launch the dedicated server from the launcher
- Launch MWLL and join your LAN server
This is working for me.
If it doesn't for you, please be more specific this time!
As for why I'm guessing your server is working but simply "invisible":
The server port the MWLL Launcher sets up by default (64087) is the old Crysis default port. Crysis Wars' default port is 64100.
This is not an issue with Internet servers as they have to register to a master server, but the LAN server browser only checks the default port.
