I'm trying to play Marble Blast Ultra over LAN, but I can't get it to work :(

Port forwarding doesn't seem to be an option for me because my network doesn't like it or something like that.

Are you trying to set-up the online features in any of the following:

- PlatinumQuest (which does have MBU levels)
- Old Marble Blast Ultra PC port (from the MarbleVortex website)
- OpenMBU

For the latter two, I believe the two aren't connected to here and PQ in any way.

Thanks for the reply! I'm using the Marble blast ultra pc port (from old marble vortex), and I'm not trying to use any of the online features. I was just wondering if it's possible to play multiplayer over a LAN (not-online) network.

I know it's possible, and I did watch tomysshadow's video about it, but I don't think any of my networks support port-forwarding. Kind of stuck at the moment :)

I don't think LAN would require port forwarding since it's entirely on your network. Port forwarding is for allowing people outside of your network to join you.

Do you know how I could setup a LAN game by chance? :)
