Stop Worrying about co op

Everyone on the forum is talking about the possible absence of a co op mode. BEcause of this, its going to be the most obvious mod to make. A decent co op mod should be released fairly quickly.

but if the devs couldn't do it? then how could freelancers possibly pull it off?

answer: because they are "allowed" to make a buggy co-op mode

exactly. It will start off really buggy and then new versions of the co op mod will come out and eventually it will be bug free. almost

I am sorry but that is just wrong. If you have heard of EA's game Battlefield 1942 you will find that more people played the very well made mod Desert Combat of it. In fact more people play DC than BF1942 or thier other game Battlefield Vietnam. I often enjoy mods very much and in some cases the only reason I keep some games I hate is because there is a mod that saves this game from the trash.

Well, those are exceptions. It's not hard to overthrow EA's quality with mods.

I have stopped playing EA games. The last EA game I bought was BF:V, and boy, that sucked. I admit, I downloaded some other EA games (NFSU:2 and MoH: PA) and those were not of high quality either, and the support was just lacking. Bugs everywhere.

Terrible.

Umm, do you not understand that co op mode is harder then ANYYYYYYY other MP mode of play.

Simply because you have to program all of the SP features to work with more then one PC character.

You have to figure out how this should be done and this, and what'll happen if Player X does somethin that affects player Y.

There's a reason why a lot of good games with MP support don't have "co op" mods available.

If the dev's have a problem doing it, and have stated because of tech reasons, then I seriously doubt a mod team will be able to pull it off anywhere near of the quality as a full working co op from retail.

I suppose you have to ask yourself this: "Do I feel lu..."

I mean, "Do I want the game this year, with few bugs, a great SP and a great story line, or do I wantthe game next year with loads of bugs, an ok SP and a co-op?"


Personally Im not bothered. Co-op isnt a very common feature in games anyway, and I dont expect a game to have it, nor do I have much use for it... as Stalker is AFAIK on the PC, so youd have to be online for a hell of a long time to play it through on Co-op.

Co op has worked in many gmaes on pc.

Co op is EASILY one of the most requested MP features of games these days, yet it's one that dev's hardly provide.

Co op allows people to experience the depth of an SP game with some friends, without degrading the experience into a usual mp "deathmatch'y" type system.
