I was wondering if and how BYOND would work on a LAN. I was thinking about it, but with no way of testing it I thought I would ask. If there is no connection to the internet, just a LAN with say - 20 people on can they all access the game? How would they do it? I thought about byond://localhost but I sort-of doubt that would work =P Maybe it could be the network address? I'm at a loss. Thanks for the help in advance.
You'd just need to know the LAN ip address of the hosting computer. It would probably be something like 192.168.1.100.

This is a list of the IPs coming from my HUB. Here is an example:
  • 192.168.0.100
  • 192.168.0.101
  • 192.168.0.102
  • 192.168.0.103


  • Lets say you have the game hosted on 192.168.0.103:4999 to access in on the other computer would be the same as connection to one over the internet. Just get on the computer and type in 192.168.0.103:4999 in the connection area.

    I've tested this so it works.

A network is a network. The only difference between the internet and your home network is that the internet is a larger network with millions of people connected. That is why it is called the internet.

This I know. =P It doesn't exactly mean that connecting to it on an intranet is the same as connecting to it through the internet.

actually it does- the method to do so is the same, the only difference between a LAN and the internet is the class of ip addresses that are available. 192.168.n.n, 10.0.n.n, and i think 172.n.n.n are the three ranges that are reserved for LANS, the rest used by the internet.

209.94.n.n is used a lot, too.

BYOND, however, may try to access the internet. If that isn't possible, it can get annoyed. You can type .configure hub-address none to tell it not to bother. Type .configure hub-address to turn hub access back on again.
