Online coop issue
Hi !

I tried to play the game with online coop with one friend (both of us play with keyboard) and we could not find the way to start the game : first player starts and the second player just waits forever for the game to start even though we can see each other.

Does anyone have a clue ?

Thanks

Hi,

I just realised that my buddy only has XP... seems he can play but that we cannot connect.

Do you think there might be a XP fix ?

thank you

Doubtful your win version differrences are causing it. Your on local network together? or trying online?

I played today an on-line 4 players co-op.

I took us around an hour to make it work, and the bugs seem to be completely randomize, sometimes something works, others don´t.

The only way that eventually work for us was this: 3 of us out of the game, 1 inside. He creates a public game, once in the character selection screen, he invite us all. We have to try this method creating each one, because when one of us creates the game, not all the players will be let in, some of have open ports, others don´t. At this point, the bug about not being able to invite players allready inside the game vanished somehow. Eventually one of us, the one with the lowest conection sadly, was able to create a game with the 4 of us. But it was laggy as hell.

I just experienced these horrors myself. We're gonna figure out what's going on.

Please share your connections issues here, so we can better pinpoint the problems.

Known issue at the moment:
- Private games cause a "cannot find game server" error.

Ok, apparently is not a connection problem, rather than a select character problem.

The first person you invite takes the fourth slot, the second gets the third slot and the fourth gets the second slot. If you invite these people too quick, some may take the same slot.

So, to ensure being able to connect to several players, select your character, then invite oneplayer, let him select a character, then again another invite...Even then, there´s some issues about the character selection, the first lot takes priority, then the second and so forth, so, if you´re in slot 3 and the person in slot 2 selects the same character as you, he may get it, he may not, the locking system for the characters doesn´t work properly.

So it seems like the problem may originate from that point.

Thanks for the info! We'll have a patch hopefully by the end of this week.

No problem men, are you part of the developers team? I really like the game, specially the aestethics, concept and humor, I really think that a few patches would make a better experience overall and probably would help to push a little bit the game to be more recognized around.

I have no idea about programing, but if it´s not impossible, you guys should think about addind the multi player online option to the other game modes other than storie. That would deffinitely be a bonus.

In any case, the best of lucks.

We started a two-men party last night with a public server. But today we could not continue, because we could not join a party again. When we tried it, an error message "banned from game session" (in german: "Von Spielsitzung ausgeschlossen"). It seems, that there is no way fixing it by ourselves, so we only can start from new.

Me and my friend have different Window OS- He use Win7 I use WinXP. When we try do story mode in Private Server- that one had problems- will say "User name" is not on any server" error, but when we switched to Public Server, it works. (First time around, did got stuck because of character 4th slot bug). If the host (With Win7) run the game on his side- halfway from start, 2 more random player joined in (4-men party) after level finishes, loading screen will be on white screen while it was fine for me since I can still see the score but it forced my friend to end the online session since it frozen on him but this time, I am the host, I ran the game in Public- (So far we played only with two-men party. We were able to finish the whole story mode without any issues expect maybe little lag.)

Thanks ! I should definitevily try and let you know.
nicodelion Apr 17 @ 1:43pm 
Many thanks !! It works, even with XP ! The trick is to play a public game. The problem is solved now for us !
If a patch is issued to solve the "friends only" option, please let it known here.
bloodyvampg19 Apr 17 @ 8:39pm 
No problem. :) I think it will be a while until then, before we do see the next patch.

I'm having this problem as well. I bought a two pack of this game for a friend's birthday and due to these problems we can't even play the game together.
