Would anyone like to play this game multiplayer with me?
Just drop me a PM,

I think it would be fun to play through this game with someone else.

does it have multiplayer? wtf?

No it doesn't but you can play it multiplayer with a few simple console commands, and a VPN service like hamachi :)

If anyone else is interested:

disconnect
maxplayers 2
net_start
map *I forgot what the first map is called*
listmodels (will provide you with a list of prechached models you can use as your playermodel, pigeon is one that I think is prechached on all maps)
setmodel pigeon

The other person can then use "connect xxx" (xxx is the other persons ip)

This method doesn't work. You can't see your friend and your friend can't see you. The problem is, that setmodel only work, when maxplayers is set to 1. But if maxplayers is set to 1, nobody can join your server. And you can't change maxplayers, if the server is running. This is f*cking ridiculous.

I've seen a video of it in action, so prehaps they just replaced the default player model? I can't seem to find it now, but I'll be sure to post a link when I do

But, what's use of mp here? Let's spoil even one of the few good sigle player narrative game?

There's no need to be so ellitest in your own preferences illgib. Whilst it may spoil the game for you, it prehaps wouldn't for others. Regardless, the purpose isn't to play this game multiplayer as any supliment for singleplayer, it'd just be an interesting experiment to do for me at least, and potentially others *hence why I asked if there was anyone who'd like to play it with me* :)

Here a little tutorial for the coop game.

Player 1/Host:
1. Start the game with -console
2. Now use these commands in the main menu
net_start
maxplayers 4
sv_lan 0
map donnely
3. Now ingame use these commands
sv_cheats 1
prop_dynamic_create esther/misc/ghost_005.mdl
ent_setname player1
ent_fire player1 setparent !player



Player 2/Client:
1. Start the game with -console
2. Now use these commands in the main menu
connect ip:port

3. Now ingame use these commands(sv_cheats 1 must be activated first)
prop_dynamic_create esther/misc/ghost_005.mdl
ent_setname player2
ent_fire player2 setparent !activator

If you want to delete the ghost, use this command
ent_fire player1 kill (for player1/host)
ent_fire player2 kill (for player2/client)



This method should work, but i am not 100% sure.
