What is involved in the hosting of a large LAN party expecting 100 to 200 attendees and what resources are necessary?
you will need large numbers of swiches and CAT5 cable... an lots of time
Connect the swiches to each other in a token ring fasion (edit this to make sure you can read it correctly) switch >>>>> switch >>>> switch | | |<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<|
or if you are fortunate enough, use the special "uplink" caling system by the mfg. you can get monserous speed that way.
anyway...once done w/that, grab a couple of PC's and put them on furthest swiches and then try to play the game in mp mode... if the n/w is too slow, you will need to upgrade your equipment... (be sure to buy from a local retailer if you can so you can swap out quickly)
once done, load up your machines and let her rip!
