How to setup Lan Coop server with more than 4 player Limit?
« on: January 27, 2019, 06:32:56 AM »
 :help:
Hello Gentlemen,

        I have 6 PCs networked together in one cramped room. Calling it a Lan party I guess :).
Well I decided to reinstall quake 2 (with patch 3.24) and play some good old coop through the vanilla and expansion packs.
      However no matter what I try, I can only get a coop player limit of 4. How does one host a server with more than a four player limit? I have seen online servers hosting coop with 8-12 players. Help please.

Thank You Gentlemen,

I'm not sure if our tastyspleen coop game was modded years ago, but it does seem to support maxclients 8.

The source code should be here:

https://github.com/tastyspleen/r1q2-tsmod/tree/tsmod/game

(Just the "game" directory, you don't need the whole r1q2 part. Also: I believe the branch will be "tsmod", not "master".)


Separately, Maraakate has developed a much-improved coop mod for Q2:

http://forum.tastyspleen.net/quake/index.php?topic=22264.msg223967#msg223967

(I'm unclear on the details of how it's tied to something called "Q2DOS", however.)

So I don't know how difficult it is to get that up and running, but from what I've seen over at the "maracoop" server, he's made improvements and smoothed out a lot of rough edges in the default Q2 coop experience.

Hi, thanks for you reply.

Forgive my ignorance please; what do I have to do with the "game" folder from:
https://github.com/tastyspleen/r1q2-tsmod/tree/tsmod/game
???

Do I have to put it somewhere in my quake2 directory? I do not know what to do. A little more help please.

Thank You,

I had same symptoms -=[AZ]=- complained about. Message was "your session expired while posting". Cure was to log in via the LOGIN link via the top menu on the forum and log in there, checking the "always stay logged in" box. Client was Edge browser.

Looks like the servers have not been recording player stats since November?   http://tastyspleen.net/quake/stats/

When I attempt to login from the main page it says session has expired every time. I have to go to the login page in order to sign in every time.
