This is more of a pre-emptive question more than anything else: I'm having a small LAN party for ARMA 3 with some friends in 2 days, (only 4 of us). And I'm just wondering exactly how setting up a LAN game works in ARMA 3? Bit of a stupid question, I know, but as I said, I'm just asking pre-emptively so we don't all bring our PCs, set them up, then go to set up a game and have a bunch of "uh-i-dunno" moments before we get into a game.

I'd probably be able to figure it out myself quite easily, but it would be good to get some advice from someone who has actually done it before, just so I know exactly what I'm doing, rather than stumbling through it.

Thanks in advance for any pointers,

you start arma, go to multiplayer, click on the top right where it says address (black box) to change it to LAN
then the host will press create match, and he will choose the mission, set parameters ect, then others will join him, his game will show up as a server does in online games. The host should be the one with the most powerful CPU for best preformance

I am very macho.

Thanks Rick, I had a feeling it would be as easy as that, thanks for the clarification anyways.
