I. Description "Half-Life: Opposing Force Coop" allows you to experience the epic Opposing Force story and environment with your friends, or with players around the world. This following guide explains how to setup a working server. II. Requirements Half-Life and Half-Life: Opposing Force on either WON osr Steam is required to play. You must also either have an LAN or internet connection. III. How to install Note: It's recommended to make backups of any file you already got with same name if you need to before installing! (Backups of skill.cfg, skillopfor.cfg, listenserver.cfg, and server.cfg). To install Opposing Force Coop, begin with downloading the newest version (v2.0) at the "Downloads" page if you haven't already. When the downloading is complete, unzip and run "ofcoop2.0.exe". You should see an install window popup. Click "Next" twice, and locate your WON or Steam Opposing Force folder. After you located it, click "Next" and "Start". Opposing Force Coop will now install. When it's done, click "Next" and "Exit" to finish the installer. Opposing Force Coop is now installed on your computer. IV. Create/Join a server Create a server Step 1: Change settings Starting a server is very simple. However, you need to change some settings first if you're gonna run a LAN server and/or you wanna change the servername and/or you wanna change the difficulty. Otherwise, just jump over this step. First, find "listenserver.cfg" at your gearbox folder (C:Program FilesSteamsteamappsyouraccountnameopposing force..), and open it with notepad. Now, if you scroll down, you should see text like this: If you want to run a LAN server, change "sv_lan 0" to "sv_lan 1". If you want to change servername, change +hostname "Opposing Force Coop v2.0 Server" to eg. +hostname "My server!" If you wanna change the difficulty (1 is easy, 2 is medium and 3 is hard, default is 2), change "skill 2" to 1 or 3. Step 2: Starting the server Go to "Start -> All Programs -> [HLCoop] -> Opposing Force Coop" and choose chapter, then choose which map. After the server started, you'll need to type "restart" in console to make all monsters spawn. NOTE: If you change map with the console, you'll have to fix the map levelchange by changing the mapcyclefile too. If you for eg. write "changelevel of3a6", you will also need to write "mapcyclefile of3a6". Join a server Start the game and go to the game menu, and click "Find servers". Now you can simply look for servers with the gametype "HL Coopplay". An alternative option is to write "connect [ip here]" in console. V. Known Bugs - Using eagle under water cause the weapon to stop working until map is changed - Rope sometimes gets "kicked" from the game if a player uses it badly - Ropes are invisible for host and flickering for clients - If a host have custom sentences, players that joins server will hear wrong sentences from NPC'S (unless they have same custom sentences) - Sometimes players gets stuck with each other. When it happens, try jumping to get released. - Only way to hurt other players is to shoot an explosive barrel near them or shoot them with one of the cannons at of6a5 - If two players enters a teleport at the same time, the first that entered will die - Sometimes a map won't change level even if a player exited map, but it's pretty rare - Sometimes game may crash - At map of1a1, players are able to kill Otis and take his gun after they've taken the Pipewrench - At map of1a2, players can shut down power outside fence - At map of2a3, levelchange often makes game crash - At map of3a2, if a player stands under scientist while he falls, he will die and also cause scientist to fall in eternity - At map of6a5, players at Xen can also hear when the Geneworm arrives - At map of7a0, if a player joins server after osprey change, it can become a bloodbath VI.

Tips - More then 8 players are not recommended. - There are some easter eggs placed out on a few levels, try find them - Run EntMod on your server, so you can release clients that get stuck - Write "fps_max 100" in console if you encounter much lag - If you want to quit the game, but also want to "save" the game so you know which map you were at, write "status" at the console to check which map you are at.
