Numrollen
Default LAN with Bots

Hello,
we plan a LAN and want to play PR. I took a look with a local account but when i create a ingame server i can not add bots to the opposite team. Is this possible somehow or do i need a dedicted server?
Would be cool if someone can give me some helpful tipps

Greetings

Use an online account. Even on LAN.
Click on co-op instead of deployment in the main menu to start a game with bots.

There shouldn't be any issues with it.

Hey,
where is the benefit for the online Account while playing on lan? Our internet connection while on LAN is very limited.

It should work if everyone uses Offline, but I don't think anybody tested this in the last 6 years, we've made lots of changes around it.

A bit late but I can confirm that it works with offline accounts without any problem on LAN

I can confirm as well. I installed PR on 10 different computers in the internet café I work at, if the host is an offline account, then all the other clients have to use offline accounts as well.
On the opposite, if you are using an online account, then you need the clients to connect with an online profile too.

I know I'm a bit late, but i have a problem when trying to set up a local server on test arfield so I can learn to fly helicopters; I have no problem with joining but when I'm on the spawn screen and select a spawn point nothing happens. Anyone knows how to fix this?

Are you able to click on the Squads Tab and create/join a squad? If so, try selecting a spawn point after that... it should work. If not, post up for more help.

Yes, I can join/create squads and there's still the same problem; I click spawn and nothing happens. I believe this happens because the ticket number is 0. I asked the same question on a different thread and a guy told me that some file in the python folder was corrupt and that I have to replace it with a file which he linked to me so I did it but then a whole different problem showed up; whenever I started a local game of deployment or cooperative the game would just instantly crash. I have now replaced the new file with the old file just so the game doesn't crash on mp deployment. If there's any way you could help it would be much appreciated.
