How do you get it to work? I've been fiddling with it for the better part of an hour, and I'm not getting anything. Anyone know anything about it?

I just want to be able to view all of my LAN games without having to enter the IP:PORT.

Well, if you want to see your LAN games then click on "Scan for Local Games".... Unless LAN = internet games...

As for getting it working, no, sadly, though it would be really cool to have working.

LAN = Local Area Network

And Scan For Local Games only shows the games on port 2092. Sad

The relay is for seeing internet games as though they were local LAN games on port 2092. Run Vortex on one computer, with the relay enabled, then run D3 on another computer and scan for games.

If you want to see your LAN games, I think you're gonna have to set them up to report to a tracker and then run vortex and then do the scan.

If you want to avoid using the Internet, you're gonna have to set up a tracker on your LAN, have all your servers report to your local tracker, then set up Vortex to read that local tracker (if it's possible to use custom trackers) and turn on the relay option.

It simply doesn't work. No internet games. Nothing. Confused

Make sure your game client is running on port 2092. Basically, if you have a "-useport" command line option set, remove it, or do -useport 2092. Also make sure Vortex is running and that you can see the game list in Vortex.

Honestly, I don't have Vortex installed, but I remember doing it.
