Running multiple instances of the game

Running multiple instances of the game

You can run multiple instances of the game to test multiplayer features without the need for other users.

  • To do this, both instances of s&box need to run sv_lan 1 before any games are started.
  • Next, the hosting client should start up a local game.
  • Then, simply type connect localhost in the console (press F1 for console in non-tools mode) of your non-hosting client to connect.

Things to note

  • Your client will be the same in all instances (name, player id, etc).
  • You will have to download your game from yourself, which can take time.
