As I can recall, the LAN option for SH2 multiplayer went down along with the online multiplayer. However, if you and whoever else still wish to play, then you can use?https://www.gameranger.com/ to set up a lobby, then play via that. I'm pretty sure that's what the majority of us here do :)?

Look, I know how to play it online, but I tried it offline(v1.2) and it worked. Now I'm looking for a modification that enables the LAN offline feature in v1.4.1

Watch out, we got a badass over here! :D

 

Just joking. But no, unfortunately there is no way to play Stronghold 2 1.4.1 in LAN. One of the reasons for that might be the fact that most of people would still play it on GameRanger anyway. I do agree however that it would be a lot better to have the option to play it in LAN as well. For obvious reasons...

 

But for start I would love to be able to fight against AI lords with human allies. Even with multiplayer manager that doesn't work so great, they don't attack as hard as they would in singleplayer.

Unfortunately as and [user]eagleprince] have already mentioned, it's not possible to play Stronghold 2 Multiplayer via LAN. This is likely due to changes in support for Stronghold 2 Multiplayer as Mathew also pointed out and at this present moment in time it's also not possible to edit the game/modify it in order to add this feature in - this information is compiled inside the .exe (I assume, as it's nowhere else to be found ...) and therefore non-editable or readable. You'd need Firefly to release the source code of Stronghold 2 to be able to edit this, which I don't see happening any time soon, unfortunately.

 

I have, however, added this suggestion to the Official Stronghold 2 Suggestions list. One of my contacts inside Firefly informed me last year that there may be more changes or updates coming to Stronghold 2 in the near future. Last time I checked they had not progressed at all, but that was some months ago.

I'll just ignore that impatient "Look" comment. I read the question just fine. If I knew of a mod (and I did search for you) I'd have given you the link. As Chris and Eagle pointed out as well, it was disabled along with the online servers.?

 

In order for a game to be able to enable offline LAN, the LAN function STILL needs to be in the game's .exe. Chris pointed out this was no longer the case with Stronghold 2, and therefore, that would probably explain the reason for there being no mods.

Sorry that I was a bit rough, but thanks anyway

 

No worries, as I said, I just ignored that bit. It's difficult to convey your tone through text. I just assumed it wasn't meant to seem passive-aggressive :P?

I think we all believe you're a good guy, so no worry. :) But I just had to use the opportunity to make the joke. :D

 

I hope you would hang with us a bit more actually, Stronghold Nation is a fine place to chill. :) Plus, you also have Crusader's threads in The Open Castle Inn which are very interesting. And if you find some articles which you could relate to your national history, you might even share that with the rest of us. That would make it even more interesting. ;)

      I recently got a new computer, and I decided to give Stronghold 2 another go.

Once you get into it though, it's fun in its own right. I've been playing through the war campaign, and I've gotten pretty far. Today I finished Chapter 11 (Treachery).   This level is really difficult at the beginning. I tried keeping the original layout at firs
