Visitors / spectators are warmly welcomed and will gain free entry ... but if caught with a console controller in hand, be prepared to face the pain!


No smoking is allowed inside the complex.


Yes, the entire complex is guarded by security guards 24/7. There is also video surveillance systems that record the entire complex as well.

How big and how many monitors can I bring into the LAN?

One (1) monitor per person is allowed in the LAN. This counts for CRT’s, LCD’s, and TV’s. Exceptionally large screens (24 inch and above) should contact us us prior to the event to assure you will have enough room.

An exception is the fighting game tournaments where monitors/TV’s are shared.

Can I bring my hub/router/switch to the LAN?

As a general rule, No. The network is setup to accommodate everything you need on the day. Each machine is assigned a port on a switch that you can use.

Can I share files on the PC network?

LanSmash has most of the latest gamepatches and steam backups located on our faithful fileserver, Techdrive. There is also an upload area for you to upload various game mods, updates, etc as well.

There is also a DirectConnect hub which lets you easily share files between machines. Sharing Pornography and R18+ content is strictly prohibited and will result in a permanent ban from future events.


Feel free to post your question on our Discord server or on the LanSmash facebook page and have it answered by responsible admins and the usual trolls.
