Ok, I’ve been trying to set up a LAN game between me and my friends laptop on GMod (nothing fancy, just literally an ethernet cable from one computer to the other).
But whenever we start a game, it loads up and everything, and we can play for maybe 30-60 seconds, then the game stops and whoever was host gets a message on the screen saying “kicked by console: invalid steam ID” or something along those lines, and the other player loses the connection as a consequence.
But… I DO have a steam ID (same as my username here). So does my friend. We tried several times and always the same result.
I get the feeling there might be something simple but vital that I just haven’t thought of, but I’ve absolutely no idea what, so any help would be greatly appreciated:)
