IF YOU DON'T WANT TO PLAY WITH ANYONE ELSE, RATHER THAN WASTING YOUR TIME AND THE NEW PLAYER'S TIME BY KICKING THEM, SIMPLY SET THE GAME TO SINGLE PLAYER! ONLY SET IT TO CO-OP IF YOU WANT TO PLAY CO-OP!

This is done from the Main Menu.
-Click "OPTIONS"
-From the tabs at the top, click "ONLINE"
-The VERY FIRST (1st) SETTING is "GAME TYPE"
-Click the arrow on the right (it looks like > in case you were confused already), so that it switches from "COOPERATIVE" to "SINGLE PLAYER". This tells the game that you do not want to play with other people, so that people won't waste their time by joining your game. :)
-Click "CONFIRM"
-Play the game as per usual

IF YOU ONLY WANT TO PLAY WITH ONE OR TWO FRIENDS

This is done from that same "ONLINE" menu. In case you already forgot:
-From the Main Menu, click "OPTIONS"
-From the tabs at the top, click "ONLINE"
-The THIRD (3rd) SETTING is "PUBLIC SLOTS". Change this to "1" or "2". This way unwanted additional players won't waste their time by joining your game. :)
-Click "CONFIRM"
-Play the game as per usual

I know these steps are extremely complex and will probably be understood by only the most advanced users, but I thought it might be worth a shot posting this anyway. It's damn annoying trying to play with people who don't want more players.

If this is still too complex, press Alt and F4 at the same time, and go play with a yoyo.

Bit of late, but I'm a bit dissapointed in people that you genuinely have to actually make this guide.

Great idea, Electrek. Would you please post how we can find out if someone wants to coop before going to the trouble of joining? Most of us would assume that that's why they haven't turned off coop capabilities, but if there's a way of finding out first and avoiding this whole mess, that would be great, too. Thanks!

Bit late to the party, but wouldn't it be considered rude on your part for joining the game without first asking the player if they wanted to coop? Stop being a child and reach out to them first.
