How to play CO-OP with a friend?
Whenever I start a server and give my IP to my friend, he can't see the server on his server list. Can someone help me?

open console ingame by pressing ~ key and type connect "server ip" then press enter.
connect 54.32.173.167:27910 for example

If you are on the same LAN, it uses UDP broadcasting to detect other servers. Otherwise you need to obtain your public IP address (like searching "ip address" on Google) and give that to him. If you are behind a residential router, port forward UDP port 27910 to the same port on your computer's private IP address (e.g. 192.168.x.y).

I searched my public IP but it didn't work. He said that the game says "connecting to IP" and nothing happens. How do I port forward? Isn't that dangerous to my connection or something?

Hey, XAN.
I wasn't able to make a server for a long long time, but I've found this thread a half year ago and now I'm able to make one.

1. Go to this site to see your PC's IP address.

2. Then read this topic :

To help you, the following names are the config file name fo the maps, cause if you wanna continue your game later, you'll have to change the last line in your config from "map base1" to anything else, like if you want to continue from Ammo Depot which filename is bunk1.bsp, you just change "map base1" to "map bunk1" and save and overwrite it.

Outer Base base1.bsp
Installation base2.bsp
Comm Center base3.bsp
Lost Station train.bsp
Ammo Depot bunk1.bsp
Supply Station ware1.bsp
Warehouse ware2.bsp
Main Gate jail1.bsp
Destination Center jail2.bsp
Security Complex jail3.bsp
Torture Chambers jail4.bsp
Guard House jail5.asp
Grid Control security.bsp
Mine Entrance mintro.asp
Upper Mines mine1.bsp
Borehole mine2.bsp
Drilling Area mine3.bsp
Lower Mines mine4.bsp
Receiving Center fact1.bsp
Sudden Death fact3.bsp
Processing Plant fact2.bsp
Power Plant power1.bsp
The Reactor power2.bsp
Cooling Facility cool1.bsp
Toxic Waste Dump waste1.bsp
Pumping Station 1 waste2.bsp
Pumping Station 2 waste3.bsp
Big Gun biggun.bsp
Outer Hangar hangar1.bsp
Comm Satelite space.bsp
Research Lab lab.bsp
Inner Hangar hangar2.bsp
Launch Command command.bsp
Outlands strike.bsp
Outer Courts city1.bsp
Lower Palace city2.bsp
Upper Palace city3.bsp
Inner Chamber boss1.bsp
Final Showdown boss2.bsp

And in the config, the difficulty was for me like set skill 0 was Easy, set skill 1 was Normal and set skill 2 was Hard, and not Normal like the guys says.
But you can check the difficulty if your bring up your status screen in-game. That's how I found out that set skill 2 was Hard.
At the set hostname line, write something after it and put it between ' " '-s.
Like me. My name is Tom and I'm playing usually with my other friend cllled Tom as well, so the first line of my config file is :

set hostname "Slaughterhouse of Toms"
set coop 1
set deatmatch 0
set skill 1
...
and so on and so on, like the topic says.

3. Follow what the guy says, then watch this youtube-video :

You just start your server batch-file, add your ip address to the address book and ask your friend to click on Refresh Server List, your server pops up and you're done. If it does not pop up for him, ask him to add your IP number to his address book as well and then it should be there.

And you have to use the same model as your coop partner or there will be blood and friendly fire. So watch out for that !
Before you start your Quake 2 Server by the batch file, you should change your character and ask tell your friend which model are you using and THEN start your server.

You have to be a bit tactical and not shooting at everything that moves, it will be like Left 4 Dead. But you have to be just a BIT tactical. Plus it spices up the game experience a bit.

I hope this helps you.
Have a great autumn, a wonderful year and goodbye.

You don't have to do that port forwarding thing or anything really special, just follow the guide, I was able to make a server in half an hour. Of course, use a TeamSpeak, Ventrillo, Mumble server, or Skype to be able to test this server thing much much faster and to have immediate feedback form your friend.

If your friend still cannot join you, stay on your server, do not exti the game and ask him to bring down the in-game console which can be done with the ' 0 ' or ' ~ ' and ask him to type "connect ip INSERT YOUR IP ADDRESS HERE " and press the Enter button.

I really hope that you will be able to play this fatastic game with these instructions.
Good luck and I wish you a wonderful coop fun.
Goodbye.
