Wolf Coop - Beta 1.4 Release

News

wolfcoopscreenshot

This is the first public release of Wolf Coop, a vanilla coop gamemode for Unreal Gold

I originally started work on this mod to offer an alternative to JCoop, as it is the only other big coop mod people run that works without too many problems on the 227 patch, but eventually I ended up adding a lot of features to create a customizable gameplay experience for coop servers

The mod features a ton of quality of life both for server hosts and players, changes to improve coop play, settings for lives and reviving players, item respawning, and even some additions such as a reworked HUD, hit sounds/markers and weapon inertia to further improve the feel of the game

Check the mod out in the links below and make sure to let me know if there's any issues!

This is an excellent mod and serves as a well-needed alternative to the old JCoopZ gamemode. Great work here! I'll probably start using it as my mainstay.

I am curious however: Are there any plans on supporting Botpack227 campaigns outright, ie. ONP? At current the fixes intended for use with those style campaigns don't seem to hook into WolfCoop at all (like the data panel in the first map, it simply doesn't function, thus blocking progression.) It'd be nice to be able to use this gamemode instead of basic co-op game mode since this mod has SO much nice functionality and ease of use features (such as persistent inventory after death, especially!)

Edit: Upon further testing I noticed Botpack227 player classes force to Female1 when loaded in WolfCoop. Any solution for this?

Sorry for the very late reply, I have been very busy the past few months

I was not aware of the incompatibilities with Botpack227 campaigns, I'd have to look into it, I hope it's not a case of a custom gamemode being overwritten but I might be able to add built in support in that case

As far as being forced to Female1, your ClassReplacement settings might have gotten reset, you can check those in your Advanced Options or WolfCoop.ini

I know I'm a month late but I hope that helps

No worries!
It appears to happen with WolfCoop in regular UT'99 maps as well so I would not think it would be an inherent game-mode thing. I did notice ONP doesn't work so well with this mod but that goes without saying since it -does- have it's own game mode with scripts attached.

As for the forcing Female1 issue I have taken a look at the class stuff in both INIs and have mucked with the settings to no avail-- it would appear they are not being recognized as UGold rooted classes or something as they are always forced to the default class.

I'm unsure what would cause this as I am no scripter myself but the issue is pretty consistent no matter what is played-- infact the only way I can get UT99 classes to work anywhere is to load regular Unreal1 co-op game mode.

Thanks for bringing this issue up to me, I will have to investigate when I find time, I'm still working on my other big mod (Project Gryphon) at the moment

In the meantime, could you tell me which version of Unreal are you using? And do you experience these issues with standard U1 campaigns?

227J.
It seems to happen anywhere using Wolfcoop-- Wolfcoop only seems to accept U1 rooted player pawns-- at least in my experience. It happens regardless of campaign/maps played, albeit basic U1 game co-op mode does allow the pawns somehow.
Trying the Botpack player pawns in most other custom co-op game modes (JcoopZ for instance) causes issues or an outright client crash I notice but this makes sense because they are much older and the game mode likely has issues even knowing what to do with them as a player entity.

Hi and thank you for this mod. I got 2 questions:

-How many players are supported? Only 2? Or is there no limit?
-Some of the best singleplayer campaigns have been created for the 1999 Unreal Tournament. How about an coop mod for these so that we could play them on online servers?

Unreal can support a very large amount of players, the scoreboard will only show up to 16 players

You can play most of the Unreal Tournament maps in 227 (and this mod) by using this Botpack conversion:

Apologies for the late answer, been very busy with other modding work

Unfortunately not that I know of, however I do plan to include one in the ReadMe eventually, there might be a few around in some Unreal or even Unreal Tournament related forums

The 3 main things you need to figure out is how to port forward, which depends on your router (a google search on how to port forward usually helps, Unreal's default port is 7777 but can be changed in Unreal.ini), turning DoUplink to True (still in your Unreal.ini) and
turn bServerSaveInventory to True (also in Unreal.ini)

Sorry if this answer is a little late, been busy with travel

Question: is there a way for the mod to save player inventory and remember it after the server is shutdown / restarted? Any way it could also load the last level the players were at?

That is actually part of vanilla Unreal, but for some reason it is turned off by default even in the 227 patch

If you want inventory to be saved between levels you have to go into your Unreal.ini and change bServerSaveInventory to True, you can find it under [Engine.GameEngine]

Loading the last level the players were at is a planned feature that will come in future updates :)

Thanks for the answer. So for instance, if me and a friend reach level 3 in the game then quit and want to continue on another day, what would be the easiest way to do that without losing their inventory or level position?

Afaik, when I restart the server, I have to know the exact name of the last map we ended on an restart it from scratch with blank inventories.

Basically, what I'm asking is: is there a way to "save" progress?

There's a setting you can change in your Advanced Options or Unreal.ini, "bServerSaveInventory", changing this to True will make it so that Every Player's Inventory is saved each time you Finish a Level

Edit: There's now a setting included in Wolf Coop 1.7 to automatically load whatever map the server was hosting when booting it up
