EDuke32-oldmp Launcher  "a .bat for starting multiplayer games easier"

User is offline   Kyanos

This is a simple multiplayer launcher .bat file for starting LAN games at home, should work for Net games as well.
This launcher will start 2-3 player games. The next post has a similar .bat for setting up larger games, up to 8 players.

For EDuke32-oldmp

It asks a few simple questions, to set the command line parameters.
Which grp to load?
Hosting or Joining?
What name to play as?
How many players?
Other players IPs to connect to?

It can get either IPv4 or Net IP addresses for you as well if needed.

It saves the command line parameters to a file _last.bat that you can rename and use later.

Each player needs to run this on their machine to start a match.

I thought about the best way to start larger games and came up with another .bat file to help.
The first post has a launcher that each player runs to start the game, each player needs to enter the IP's.
That's fine for 2-3 players, at most each person inputs 2 IP's, a total of 6 IP's typed by hand spread out over 3 players.
For larger games this could mean 8 players have to type 7 IP's totaling 56 IP's typed by hand, probably a few errors, too much work either way.
So I restructured the launcher into a 2-8 player command line .bat creator.

This launch setup.bat lets one person type in each players name and IP. It uses the list of names and IP's to make all the .bat files for each player to run on their own machines.

Again, code is in plain text in spoiler.
