How to get the THAW LAN mode working

Hello everybody,

my friends and I are used to play good old games at our retro LAN parties.

Over the past years, we've managed to get over 200 "old games" up and running properly.
Unfortunately, there remains Tony Hawks American Wasteland, which I've never got running via multiplayer LAN (offline LAN without any internet access!).

So after many months of researching, testing and analyzing I've couldn't find a solution to solve the issues.

Now you're our last hope for getting the LAN mode of THAW working again.

We have Windows 7 x64 machines in use for our LAN parties and everyone is using the US version with the applied patch 1.01 and copied over the reloaded THAW.exe.

Furthermore we have tried the THAW Launcher (with tm_e.pab.wpc + tm_e.pak.wpc activated) and THE-MOD v0.1 without the Launcher.
None of them worked for us.

We are able to start a network game without any problems but no one can’t find or join the hosted network game. :(

Has someone managed to get the LAN mode (without internet access) running properly on a Windows 7 x64 machine?

Thank you for your interest/time. :)
