Here is the full cooperative mod for Spearhead. You can check the details on the summary page!
The mod includes:
- Cooperative version of the full ALLIED ASSAULT, SPEARHEAD and BREAKTHROUGH Campaigns,
- New menus,
- New, fully automatic respawn system, (Many thanks for Gabor)
- New exe files with working ingame browsers like before, (thanks to x-null.net)
- You can start visible servers, but don't forget to open the needed ports!
- You can use the old SP-Style Objectives window by using TAB (Many thanks for Chrissstrahl )
- The mod has 3 skill levels: Easy (original amount of enemies), Normal (more), Hard (many)
- If you play SPEARHEAD, you can choose your side! In Normandy you fight against the british arms, in Ardennes you find americans, in Berlin you'll confrontating with the soviets. I don't plane to make this to AA & BT.
- Thanks to Delovoy for the tests!
- Some maps are stayed as easy as it was the original, but some maps changed to a bit harder, or to really harder, like D-Day,
- Important: Don't try to play D-Day map if you're less than 3, because hat map is a really destructor map. (I suggest 2 sniper-player who cover the third runner...) This map is really hard. I think it's similar hard like the original was in the real life, but check it out, you'll notice why I say this.
- The mod could stay as a server-side mod, so ANYBODY can join to your game even, if they have no the mod! (the only different is that they cannot use the SP-Style Objective tab and they haven't COOP menus)
The mod includes these knowed bugs:
- SPEARHEAD's first map (t1l1) doesn't work on dedicated server
- We had not enough time for testing, so I could left some bugs.
- the engine can causes some unwanted suprises, because sometimes the map doesn't start its scripts. (the rate of these problems is less than 1%) These are the maps where I met with this problem:
- on map BT e3l3 pls don't use backward when you drive the AB41, or your teammates will be dead,
- some maps can be a bit laggy, maybe the long codes cause this (like D-Day), but playable.
- I had to modify hard some maps to play them in coop.
- Recommend to install the mod into a new MOHAA install, not recommmend to use with other mods.
- Delete the previous version's files (very important, if they are exist)
- Extract the zip files into your Medal of Honor folder
- if ask to overwrite the exe or pk3 files, click YES
- To play with ALLIED ASSAULT & BREAKTHROUGH, run the attached moh_breakthrough.exe
- To play with SPEARHEAD, run the attached moh_spearhead.exe
So thanks for your patient + support, and I hope you'll like this mod.
I hope we'll meet on COOP servers.
Here is some short, but really important information about the actual Status of the mod:
- the whole ALLIED ASSAULT campaign is playable in Coop! (33 maps)
- now I work on the BREAKTHROUGH's Coop final version, (11 maps)
- after this I plan to finalizing the SPEARHEAD's Coop. (9 maps)
- the ALLIED ASSAULT campaign is playable under BREAKTHROUGH only! (SH was not stable for AA maps, caused many crashes)
- the mod is MUCH BETTER than it was in the last release.
- New Respawn System: no need to pickup stupid smoke-columns. It will be fully automatic.
I got some really great help, so:
- it seems you'll can use the old Objectives tab from Single Player,
- the maps can restart if you failed the objectives (not on all maps, just if you loose your tank...etc., like in SP)
- I need 1 or 2 mounths (I hope it will be enough)
- the release will include all campaigns and maps. (33+11+9=53 maps)
- I want to make some important global changes to keep the SP feeling.
