Cry of Fear

How to play Co-op with your friends! (With and Without Hamachi)
(IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH CRY OF FEAR, VISIT http://www.cry-of-fear.com/forum/ !!)
The forums of Cry of Fear is fairly absent of users (including me) to assist players with their issues in CoF. You can only look up old threads of problems that you might have, otherwise trying to create a new thread will be ignored/never seen.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
People are having problems playing Co-op with a friend - either through the, "Host Server" option or, "Dedicated Server" tool. The "Dedicated Server" tool gives out an error, "....offset for is_donator!" and crashes the server, while "Host Server" just doesn't allow connections.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

BEFORE YOU BEGIN...
If you or your friend can't seem to get connections to the server after following the steps, please check your Windows Firewall to make sure it is not blocking connections to your Cry of Fear. You may temporary turn off your firewall to test to see if your Firewall is blocking connections to your server. If so, adjust the settings in your Firewall to allow your Cry of Fear to have connections.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are 2 ways to connect and play Co-op in Cry of Fear:

Playing Co-op (WITH HAMACHI)
You will need:
  • Hamachi (duh)

Here is the link [www.vpn.net]to download Hamachi (Your friend needs Hamachi as well). You'll have to create a login now to use Hamachi if you haven't used Hamachi before, but it is pretty simple - username, email, and password and that's it.

After downloading Hamachi, start Hamachi up, and setup a network (Hamachi > Network > "Create a new network" > Fill in the blanks with whatever you want) and tell your friend to get in the network (Tell him the name and password).

After he joins the network, copy your Hamachi IPv4 (located next to the Power Button Icon [ex. x.xxx.xx.xxx] you may left/right-click around this area and click "Copy IPv4 Address") and don't forget it, you are going to give it to your friend in a bit. Start up Cry of Fear and start a server like usual (Host Server > etc...) BUT make sure LAN is checked before starting.

Now, you are going to give your Hamachi IP to your friend in this form....
connect <hamachi IPv4 here>
.... and he will type that into the console (~ key) to connect.

Now you should be able to Coop, if he couldn't connect with LAN on, then you may try this command:
sv_lan 0

IF YOU CAN'T SEEM TO CONNECT, PLEASE REFER TO "BEFORE YOU BEGIN..." SECTION ABOVE.

If you need visual guide for Hamachi, there's a video now provided by the dev's official YT channel by yours truly! Hope this helps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Bw-_nnYeEU&feature=youtu.be&ab_channel=TeamPsykskallar

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Playing Co-op (W/O HAMACHI)
You will need:
  • a Static IP Address
  • Port Forwarding

I should note that going with this step will require a user who have knowledge of their router and system, or else you will struggle trying to perform this step to host a server. It's best that if you aren't computer/networking savvy, stick with Hamachi.

To start off, if you are unaware of your static IP, you may use Google to find tutorials on where to locate your static IP (this will help you host the server in a bit). If you do not have a Static IP, you will need to know information about your router in order to look up tutorials on how to set up a static IP on your router in order to continue.

To find the ports you need, go https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711 (If link doesn't work, look up "Steam support ports"). If you do not know how to port-forward, then look at tutorials (you need to know the information about your router before doing this) - you can use this program as well. http://portforward.com/

Start up Cry of Fear and host the server (Host Server > etc...) with LAN off.

After you're in the Co-op lobby, tell your friend to type this in his console (~ key) to connect:
connect <static IP here>:27015

Hopefully, this should work.

IF YOU CAN'T SEEM TO CONNECT, PLEASE REFER TO "BEFORE YOU BEGIN..." SECTION ABOVE.

If none of the above steps work, then let your friend try hosting, following either steps (with or without Hamachi).

[EDIT: Forgot one step in Playing Co-op (w/o Hamachi) ]
[EDIT 2: Corrected mistake under Playing Co-op (with Hamachi), this was probably the reason nobody could use Hamachi, sorry guys!]
[EDIT 3 (2/24/15): Slight adjustment to tutorial so it looks more organized and easier to read. Removed some text, developers are 'done' with developing Cry of Fear and will no longer update the game, so this tutorial is here to stay.]
[EDIT 4 (6/1/16): Added warning/troubleshoot step above steps about Firewall.
[EDIT 5 (1/15/17): Changed Hamachi download link.
[EDIT 6 (6/13/17): Updated Hamachi info, slight edit to some text.
[EDIT 7 (8/22/18): Updated Hamachi info regarding connect command. You don't necessarily need the port number at the end of the command to connect, but you can use it if you like (the ":27015"). Also added that you can left/right-click on IP next to Power Button and it gives you an option to "Copy IPv4 address".
[EDIT 8 (2/2/2021): Added Hamachi video tutorial from dev's official YT channel - made by me c:

we played a few seconds and got "steam validiation error" using hamachi
Every time my friend and I try to open the game with console we get error missing executable and we have both verified integrity of game cache anyone have a solution?
If you are using a PC and don't know how to do the static ip thing, hosting and joining. Read a little. is the most basic stuff for any gamer on PC.

Restart your computer and internet and try again.

Can you copy down what the error said?
Hey folks this is headshots friend if for some reason the static IP isn't working then try hamachi. Though it should work considering we played an hour of co-op :P

Are you trying LAN on or off through the console? Are you restarting the server and checking/unchecking LAN to see if it is turning off/on properly?

Updated post with letting your friend trying to host.
Don't use the link in the OP for Hamachi. You'll get a bunch of crap downloaded with it along with changing your homepage without asking.
It didn't change mine, you just have to use custom download settings it tells you to. I chose not to use homepage/tool all that crap.
