LANBuddy

LANBuddy logo

LANBuddy is a suite of programs I developed to make running gaming LAN events much easier for the hosts, and finding information and keeping track of the schedule much easier for the attendees.

Includes on-the-fly schedule management, serverless LAN Chatroom, display clients for use on projectors & halls, and more.
