In the multiplayer server list you will be able to join servers that appear with white text. Servers you can't join will appear as opaque in the list. The FEAR-COOP mod is flexible in that it allows server hosts to use the FEAR-COOP mod in different game modes although it's primarily designed for cooperative mode. <<<<SERVER INSTRUCTIONS>>>> If it's your first time to run a server in cooperative mode it may be easier to set up your server configuration file using the in game hosting area. Here you can select maps that support the COOP game mode. Here's is a break down on setting up custom made maps in COOP game mode. Full details on setting up a configuration file can be found in the serverreadme.txt. Setting up a FEAR-COOP server using in-game host =================================================== To set up a FEAR-COOP server, just follow these steps: 1. Launch the FEAR-COOP game application (FEAR-COOP.exe via desktop shortcut or FEAR-COOP.bat in the main FEAR directory) 2. Select "Multiplayer" from the main game menu. 3. Select "Host" from the multiplayer menu. 4. Set up the game type (Cooperative or other prefered mode), server name, options, and map rotation. 5. Set your network port, or use the default port of 27888. 6. For the Dedicated Server option, select Yes. 7. Click Launch. The game application will now close, and the standalone server application will start. Once your server is running, clients launching in FEAR-COOP Mode can search for and join it in the same way they would a normal host. Once your server has been configured and launched through the game interface for the first time, you can run your server again at any time by double-clicking the "FEAR-COOP Dedicated Server.exe" shortcut file on your desktop or the FEAR-COOP-Server.bat in your F.E.A.R. main directory. If you wish to make any changes to the server setup, you'll need to launch the game application again and change your settings through the host game interface or by manually editing the configuration file. Single player mission maps will also appear in your map list although you can add them or any other custom maps manually. Single player maps are listed as Mission0=Worlds\Release\Mapname (Notice that regular maps use ReleaseMultiplayer) The SP maps will appear in the map list for every game mode as follows: Admin Aftermath AliceAlma ATC_Roof Badge Bishop_Evac Bishop_Rescue Docks E3_Demo_2005_Short Facility_Bypass Facility_Upper Factory FEAR_SP_Demo FEAR_SP_Demo_Intro Getting_Out Hives Intro Mapes_Elevator Moody Performance Performance_Combat Vault Wades WTF_Ambush WTF_Entry WTF_Exfil Tweak and configure your server as suits you best. Have fun with it all. <<<<MAP MAKER INSTRUCTIONS>>>> In your .ini please add COOP to the RequiredFeatures= or SupportedFeatures= area. The SupportedFeatures is best as it will still leave your map open in the map list for other modes. <<<<CREDITS>>>> So far...
