How to start online COOP?
« on: 29 February, 2012, 04:12:12 AM »
How do I do it?

Whenever I try to host my own server (In game menu) my friends can never join in. (I invite them to the game through steam menu)

We aren't doing a LAN. They live far away and always get "Server Not responding" Error

I do have a fast connection, and all my HL-2 games works fine.

Help Please

Easiest solution:
Go to Tools under your Steam library and download Dedicated Server
Open it up so it can generate it's folder structure
Copy your CryOfFear folder to dedicated server from half-life
Open up the liblist.gam file inside the CryOfFear folder (in Notepad, the one in the dedicated server folder, not the one in the half-life folder) and change the type entry from singleplayer_only to multiplayer_only
Verify your ports are forwarded correctly
Open up Dedicated Server and change the game to Cry Of Fear (change the max players to 4 and make sure Internet is selected.)

Try again.

My friend started coop. I can connect to his game without problems (connect XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX command).

But there is one annoying thing:
- screen trembling after jump-crouch, you must stay at crouch state, to see effect. (I just hit space key only once, and then immediately I press ctrl key)
- and screen trembling while sprinting or jumping
It is somehow related to crosshair width. The bigger, the worse trembling occur. How to fix this?

I'll record video and upload it tomorrow, so you can see what I meant.

PS: When I start my own coop, that trembling effect does not appear. The same goes for single player / campaign, no screen trebling/shivering.

How to fix this?

@Clay
After copying CryOfFear folder to dedicated server from half-life we can delete all BSP files (inside maps folder) whose names does not contain "c_cof_"  (of course, don't delete cof_campaign_01.bsp)

If you started a coop game and no one can join you simply send them this:
Code: [Select]
steam://connect/your_ipThey will recieve it as an URL so they'll just have to click on it.

To know your IP: http://www.whatismyip.com/

Hello guys, I am new here, didn't even put an avatar yet

Need some help, I am trying to play with my friend, I did the tutorial Clay make it, but with no success

I am with Dedicated Server opend here, server running, but I can see only in the LAN tab and my friend see nothing

Of course I make the server for INTERNET e not for LAN
I've never needed to port forward here because of my configuration in the router, so I guess that is not the problem

Help! and thx :)

Hard Solution, but doesn't require the players joining to do: You can port forwarded Cry of Fear(Look up on how to do)
Easy Solution, but players joining must do(Atleast when setting up Hamachi and joining the IP): You can try using Hamachi. I can't remember how I got it to work,  :stig: so you need to look it up.

Note: GameT, you should probably use Hamachi.
