November 15th – Coop Update

What’s new:
Last update didn’t go as planned and broke more things than it fixed. This update should fix all the issues introduced by the last one.

We’re still rewriting the code to make it properly work with more players because it wasn’t designed for it. Sometimes it requires to do code changes in all the missions that can lead to simple mistakes while copy pasting which you could see in the last update.

Hopefully this update sorts it and all missions should be playable. If not, feel free to report any issues.

Next update will require game patch and will bring debriefing into to the score screen. That will play video if the mission provides it or just display some text together with all objectives. I also managed to get the end campaign videos work, so you can look forward for that. Ultimate goal is to make briefings before the missions also work, but that will require much more work.

Another feature that will get introduced with that update will be a “Feedback” button. It will be placed in the score screen and it will lead directly to the mission’s forum thread. Each mission will have it’s own thread where you will be able to report problems, suggest improvement and all your other wishes.

For that a new coop subforum got created. You can visit it now and find there chafe10‘s new mission called Depuce Defence http://forums.faforever.com/viewforum.php?f=78
