Coop campaign from single player campaign
« on: June 30, 2020, 01:26:00 PM »

Hi i would like to play a "single player" campaign (a static/scripted one) in a coop with a friend of mine, so to transform a "single player" campaign in a coop campaign.
I have seen that I just have to remove the "player" from the mission file, but how to do that, which lines/code i have to delete/change in the mission file?

second question: In any case I would like that the two planes chosen to play the campaign will be the "ex-player" plane and its wing plane, just to play the "same" campaign but with two human players ... so, my question is: how to understand which are the two planes to select when you are in the  "assign" screen (where there is the list of all available planes) ?

You need to do this in the Full Mission Builder , or by editing the .mis file.
I recommend you start with the FMB.

Open the FMB , then navigate to the Mission(s) you wish to modify one at a time.
Open the Mission.

The Player Flight can be identified by the little flag attached to its Waypoints.
Move your cursor to any of the Player Flight Waypoints and click on it.
While it is flashing , open the "View" Menu and open the "Objects" Menu.
Your Player flight will show several Tabs :
Properties/Waypoint/Waypoint Options/Plane 1/(and possibly) Plane 2/Plane 3/Plane 4
First things first , you need a Plane for your friend. If you only see Plane 1 , you need to give the flight another plane.
Click on the Properties Tab - one of the Menu Selection is Planes - Click on the Arrow at right whcin will drop down a menu from which you can select 1 , 2 , 3, or 4 planes for this flight.
Once you have selected the number of Planes for your flight , you need to go to each of the Plane Tabs and see which one has been selected as the Player Aircraft.
Disable this by clicking on the Check box beside "Player".
Now when you open the Mission in Coop Mode , you will be able to choose any aircraft in the flight.
Now I recommend you go to EVERY OTHER FLIGHT on the map one at a time , and in the Properties Tab , select the
AI ONLY Checkbox. This will prevent you from seeing and knowing every other flight in the mission , and ensure that you don't select the wrong aircraft when you are in the Coop Selection Screen.
Now you need to make sure this mission is in the Mission/Net/Coop Path , so click on the "File" Tab ,
Click "Save As" , and follow the path Net/Coop/ and name the Mission whatever you want by typing it in the File Name slot and click Save.
Now exit the FMB , and select Multiplay. Select Coop Mission Type , and all available Coop Missions - including the one you just named - should appear in the selection box to the left. Select your preferred Difficulty settings and launch the mission.
When it loads , you should see only the aircraft in your flight available to select.

Good Luck

thank you. I followe what you write and it works fine.

Only problem I do have with briefings ... I noticed that when I edit the mission, it creates a new "xxxxx_ru.properties" file empty ... what's that ?
On my pc it works, but when the server starts from another pc (my friend to whom I sent the files via e-mail) the briefing text disappear.
He solved deleting the "_ru" file it and re-copying the original "xxxx.properties" (without the _ru), but is there a way to have it right when I "save" the edited mission in FMB ?

This is because the original game was built using Russian as the language.
Mod packs were thus built on the "Russian" game version , and read the _ru.properties
brief .
There may be a way to alter your game so that the drudge work of copying and renaming your properties files to
_ru.properties , but I don't know what it is.
Maybe some OG with more technical acumen can provide you with a better solution.

Anyone ?
