OK, it appears the coop gametype has been removed from the game. This was my crews favorite gametype in the BF series.
I was having a look at the level folders and in the conquest gametype folders there is an ai folder. Im curious if there is a console command to spawn bots in conquest mode, otherwise the only way to get coop with bots is to create a new gametype mod. After looking at the python files for conquest gametype, this looks like a bit of a challenge.
i was told u can join sp games if they're hooked up to a network... u can see them in the lan menu.. idk if thats true... but hey.
Actually this is true, if you have a friend start a single player game, you and others can connect to their game. To connect you open the online multiplayer screen and there is a button that lets you join an IP. So all you have to do is put in your friends IP and you join.
Also, if you open the mod/bf2/ai folder there is a file called aidefault.ai it has instructions and code that lets you change the bot settings.
Im hoping with the release of the editor that modders may have a good chance of creating a coop gametype. My friends and I are very sad that coop was removed.
me too mate....me too... but hey, have u got cable?
Cable? do you mean like cable tv? or cable internet? If so, no I dont have those.
erm.. how come i cant see my friends when they are playing sp and .. when i click connect to ip nothing ops out for me to try to insert their IP.. must i go make an online account?
1 ) Both peeps start game 2) Get the host to start a local multiplayer LAN game (not single player). Map doesn't matter at this point. 3) Get the other computer to go to join local lan game screen but NOT JOIN the server. At this point the host should be visible on the client machine 4) have the server quit and start a single player map of choice. 5) Once server player has spawned, have client then click join and viola, LAN with bots and no internet connection

Yes, both players MUST have an online account for this to work!
