Contagion - Update June 16th :: Split Screen Local Co-op, AI tweaks, Linux/Mac Update, and much more!
It's been a long time coming for many but we've finally added Local Co-op Split-screen without the need like other games to go through a series of steps to get it working right. 2 Game-pads, Keyboard & Mouse & Game-pad, the days of Consoles and PC games lacking this feature may be dying out but this is something we grew up with and playing with a friend or sibling without having to lan was a hot topic for gamers and owners of Contagion so we can now tick our Local Co-op in the listings. We will continue to watch over it and tweak here and there to improve the overall quality of course (no aim assist for game-pads, sorry heh).

Our Survivor AI accuracy is dependent on difficulty as well as commands that are allowed making Extraction while it was still difficult, more realistic and this will only improve throughout the year.

We've also enabled more server commands for Server Hosts to use to setup their servers closer to what they'd like them to be (Dec went to bed and I don't have the list heh)

Check out the changes below in this weeks update-

Contagion - Update June 16th Changelog:
  • Added split-screen support to Contagion, also added menu in options to enable it. (WIP)
  • Adjusted survivor AI accuracy to be less perfect on easier difficulties.
  • Enabled additional console commands to be allowed to be changed by server hosts.
  • Fixed the ability to drop a grenade before infection and kill ex-teammates.
  • Fixed survivor AI being able to receive commands while inside a house or while climbing.
  • Fixed IED and phone screen disappearing near water or mirror elements sometimes.
  • Fixed memory leak issues with multiple flash-lights.
  • Fixed possible server crash-loop when blending as a zombie.

Linux & Mac News
This week we have updates on both Linux and the Mac build. Valve has been quite helpful in keeping on things an we have started working not only on our Linux but also our Mac builds! Whether they are able to release simultaneously or not is yet to be seen but this is great news to those who are eager to play Contagion on their Linux machine/Steam Machine and/or Mac!

Also for those that missed our Official Contagion - Let's Play Top 10 Countdown with prizes exceeding $12,500 check it out!

Next week we're hoping to release our updated melee system that will definitely change the way the game is played and for many this is also another update that's been eagerly awaited. Will also try and grab some sneak peaks of our current maps in development/nearing release like CE_Biotec :)

Good job! No more workaround for the splitscreen mode yay!

Latest update broke sound (glass breaking, objects hitting ground etc).

**EDIT** This has now been fixed :)

Cheers

So how do I play local coop? Like, step by step. Is there any instructions anywhere? I tried to go to split screen and its disabled. When I start a offline game, the second player can't get in.

AWESOME!!!

fredboots: Make sure you have a game-pad connected and enable splitscreen.

This is graet. More games need split screen. Can you play split screen and online at the same time?
Tatsur0  [developer] Jun 22, 2014 @ 8:21am 
Indeed :)

Why don't you port maps from ZPS? I really miss them, espeically since this game in a dire need of variety.
Tatsur0  [developer] Jun 23, 2014 @ 3:13am 
It's already being done by the community and we've helped a few who are keen on using the new sound system and more.

So, we're going to see them in workshop eventually? Or do I miss something?
Tatsur0  [developer] Jun 23, 2014 @ 8:56am 
That would be the plan yes.
