would be nice
Comment 1 Russell Rice 2012-04-12 11:29:15 UTC
Odalaunch can send broadcasts across a LAN as of the latest revisions

A smarter idea would be to have the launcher and server join a multicast group on a very different but static port number: each server would send a message to the group and the launcher would know of its ip address and port number (,, whatever etc..) in the message
