Cry of Fear with Hamachi
By hold your colour
Welcome to my guide. This is a simple tutorial on how you can create a co-op campaign with a simple VPN (Virtual Private Network) program (e.g. Hamachi, Tungle etc.) The whole walkthrough will be in steps so it's easier for everyone.

Step 1: Install Hamachi]
Step 2: Create a network and tell your friend(s) to join (if you got more than 4 friends you can create multiple networks)
Step 3: Start a co-op campaign and untick the box with the indication LAN.
Step 4: When you get in the lobby make sure you open the console (~) and type sv_lan 0
Now your server is ready for everyone to join but joining your server does not always require you to click Join Game through Steam
Step 1: Go to Hamachi and find the host's hamachi IP (example:
Step 2: Now go to Cry of Fear and open the console
Step 3: Insert this command: connect (host's hamachi IP goes here it would be for the example above)
Step 4: Enjoy the game!
If the game crashes when you change worlds, you should know that it is not a connection problem but a problem of CoF/Steam

26/4 [EDIT] There are some errors of which the most common is Failed to contact game server which in my opinion have to do with the antivirus/firewall. Many users face it as of now and the cause is unknown at the moment.
29/4 [EDIT] Don't bother complaining about game bugs to me or others as only the developers can fix them at the moment.
29/4 [EDIT] I am no play machine. Please do not add me just because you have nobody to play with. I made the guide to help others. Does not mean I want to play CoF 24/7 Thanks :)
26/5 [EDIT] Minor fix

@blackhawk252 Your friends need to connect to your hamachi network. And sv_lan 0 will always work.

@Purple Piccolo Great idea now you have to make a guide about it and take questions from people who aren't tech savvy and have a different router/modem each.
