View Full Version : Coop question
03-25-2010, 12:46 AM
Sporting told me you can make any SP map work as coop by editing the map so that the starting player is Dom. So i tried that and it sorta worked but with a problem. My friend was able to join, but only as spectator. We both tried hosting and when i joined same thing....spectating from his point of view as Dom, but i could not play. Does anyone know how to work around this so that you join in and play instead of spectating? I did this with the Orion map by the way. It starts and you choose whether you want 1 or 2 team mates. doesn't matter whether you choose 1 or 2, the friend who joins never takes either one over. There is also no game starting interface where you choose teams or any of that. But i take it thats normal because we tried a coop map a while back that was like that, IE: it started just like a sp map and when the friend joined he just automatically took over the team mate bot.

i said as long you have a bot that is dom,
So add a Player Start, for marcus starting point on the map
Then in kistmet, create a AI_Factory > DOM
This is the basic way to create a coop game. You can do more, in a different way but that how a basic coop game is set
i just got home, lately i've been too busy to continue my stuff i'll posty a screen shot in a few minutes
Here's two easy ways to create DOM, there's other way of making it but this is the basic AI_Factory
Left is Basic Right is more advance but still basic... the advance you can add more stuff to that type of AI_Factory
The bottom is to set new weapons to Marcus when spawned, but kismet is so fun... and you can do it in soo many different ways...
PLAYER SPAWNED DOESNT NEED TO BE THERE, FROM LEVEL STARTUP YOU COULD LINK IT TO THE GIVE INVENTORY, JUST NEED TO TELL WHAT TARGET IT GOES TO

Whay i did was in kismet i clicked on every ai factory and changed the random spawn to dom. It worked, but like i said whoever joins the game is only spectating and watching dom (me) play. So a second person CAN join, he just can't play, only spectate.

umm, are you saying you playing as DOM?
If you were playing as Marcus, did your friend forgot to click mouse1 to activate posses pawn "DOM:?
You need to be playing as Marcus, Dom should be ready for AI only and will be picked up by coop/friend...
If you want to play as Dom, as main char. It's possible... but i don't wanna do all the details... seems if i tell you ... you'll ask for something else...

I see. I thought whoever started (hosted) should be dom, but i see you are saying it's the dom character who is the only one a joiner can take over. I will re edit the map to make all the random partners dom. But one question...are you saying that Marcus is also required as the character the hoster must be? In other words, you must have both dom and marcus with dom as the partner to the person who hosts as marcus? Or can the hoster be ANY character? It just sounded like you were saying it's got to be marcus and dom.

I have also been trying to get this to work and have the same issues. So what ever it is I seem to be making the same mistake :confused:

look, do this...
place a 'PLAYERSTART" node on the map, open kismet
Create some type of "level startup" link it to spawn "AI FACTORY" make sure it's DOM AI
just this should make coop possible
