People can join your game and trash your savegame
This is what happened to me. I was about finish the Jesuit Bark quest to open up the temporary merchant in order to buy some stingray tails and some ♥♥♥ joined my game and involuntarily advanced me to the spot where the tunnels are already pumped ouyt and you are ready to enter them. ALSO, HE ZEROED ALL MY TEAM MISSIONS, which had all been almost completely finished except for Wayne's (had the crazy glue, needed the stingray tail).

I have found some savegame editing tools but nothing to change what missions you have completed.

yeah and also accept quest for you is the same in the first dead island, also wished they would update the game so the one there joins not can accept quest and trigger quest events and increase the distance you shall be in before you both are ready to enter a area (really hate you almost need to hug each other)

ps. if i join a game then i dont take/trigger anything since i know how game breaking this can be for some players

I had the problem when i first started 3 co-op players joined and i got loads of xp, quests completed and after about 2 hours when they left i found i could pick items up and sell them but got no money making it unplayable, when i got in touch abouyt this they told me to start from one of the chapters before and all was well, i still play it and try to join a new game with just my same level and all i do is help kill zombies

I didn't know you could elect to start from an earlier chapter. It won't fix my zeroed team quests, though.

Anyway this was not from earning xp and advancing quests, this guy hit a button and warped me across the map. He was using some hacked up mod to make zombie corpses fly all over the place. It was utterly stupid so I left the game. It was only when I logged back in later that I realized my quests were screwed up.

well this guy should be known to others, i also found it does not pay to trade items they have a hack to steal all your inventory, i do not stand anywhere near to them when they invite to trade
i just throw an item into the floor, i got a few decent gold weapons but lol im keeping then a bit pointless when your level 70 you everything you pick up is also level 70 so no good for lower level players. Its about time steam sorted out these wanna be game cheats ban them from the games. When i pay good money i want to enjoy the game not walk through with a hack working so you dont die andf have unlimited ammo, there are far to many on here that use them
yeah ive seen a guy hit zombies and they go across the screen i just thought they got hold of zeds demise

This guy was punching zombies at long range and knocking them back and forth. I could punch a zombie prety far myself using John's uppercut, but what this guy was doing almost looked like live editing of the game.

Unfortunately I did not remember his name as I did not realize what had happened until much later, when the game transferred me to a different checkpoint.

Maybe you could still check his nickname. Go to View > Players. You'll see a list of most recently played Steam games with anyone.
Green777 Apr 1, 2014 @ 1:45pm 
anyone find the name lewt me know and ill put it on our forum board

it is 100% legally to edit the default settings with a text editor, instead of complaining about this then instead ask how to do it youself if you got a problem with it (takes 5min to learn)
or only play co-op with your friends you know are not cheating :P
Green777 Apr 1, 2014 @ 2:09pm 
i can understand his point, it just beats me why people have to cheat fair enough if they play on their own but some take it to far just dropping into anyones game just to ruin it, i know all about using a txt editor i used to do this ages ago when i was a member of a group, but now i just want to play normally whats the fun being invincible and using infinite ammo lol these are not good game players

edit: its ok to flame and bash on me i dont get mad

(only if you say you wanna play and then try to hide you are offline 5min after when you are not, that makes me angry) olavelias did this and that is why i blocked him
waited almost 1 hour and then i readed forums and see he are online there but steam says he is offline (dont think you can cheat me mr)

And now a new insult. I cannot finish one of the quests. The butcher boss who you have to kill in chapter three for "Saving Holy Man" will not spawn for me as the main quest line is already passed. So I can never complete the one quests where you kill the butcher, so I can never get the achievment for all 80 quests. I have 79.

I looked through my view->players list and I think I know who the jerk is but it could be one of two people. I will watch the list of names online.
Vreejack Apr 12, 2014 @ 3:55pm 
I was wrong about the butcher boss: he does not get a separate quest, so that was cool. I was missing the "Save Xavier" quest, so I was able to complete all 80.
