ZDooM 2.0 B38 on LAN

Could some one help me out with playing a co-op or dm game over LAN with the newest ZDooM? I am using the -host blah blah and -join <ip> commands like with 1.22 but it doesn't seem to work with B38. Are there new commands or something?

It might be easier if you join the host's computer name rather than ip address, though both should work I think. On LAN, I host with

zdoom -host n where n is the total number of players including the host.

Players join with

zdoom -join Biff where Biff is my computer's "name" on the LAN, set as identification in network properties. I'm pretty sure we've played with v38, I'll double check it after work.

Played Co-op Heretic last night with v38. Nothing broken, all is well. Check that each computer can ping the other on your lan, maybe there is a problem with your TCP/IP installation.

That has to be sweet in coop, with all the zdoom weapon decals enhancing the carnage. :)
