I'm trying to implement a pretty simple concept: when the game starts it calls JoinNetwork() then spends two seconds looking for a host; if it doesn't find one it then declares itself the host with HostNetwork(). The problem I'm having is that this ends up with two clients on the network - so I suppose what is happening is the first attempt to join actually succeeds when that local host is created. Looking at the example code for JoinNetwork, I figured what I was missing was a CloseNetwork() command, which that code calls after a timeout. But trying this locked up my code. Wondering if I was doing something else wrong, I tried the example code, but it locks up too.

The snippet from my tier 2 code:

So what to do? This seems like an easy way to emulate something closer to peer-to-peer. Any help much appreciated!
