[TUTORIAL] Co-op testing alone
So this is something I've just discovered. I don't know if anyone else had found out this before or if anyone has already tested it. It works for me and it should work for everyone too, I hope.
It saves so much time when testing a map: you won't need to find anyone or have two PCs and two games or whatever.
Before starting I have to say that I had a cracked version before buying the game and I hope that this doesn't make my game work differently. It shouldn't.
I know it works with the CD version and Lanfixed versions but I don't know if it does with Steam.
The texts in the images are in Spanish but I guess you can figure out what to do with the explanation, lol.
Don't do 1 ), 2 ) and 3 ). If it doesn't work, then do them
1 ) Before starting you need Tunngle (I've tried it without this program and it didn't work for me). What this program do is to create a fake LAN connection with other people, but we'll use it to connect with ourselves (that's more or less, I'm not an expert, lol). Download it [You are not allowed to view external links. Register or Login to see them] and install it. You'll need to sign up.
2 ) Once it's installed you have to make it work. I don't know how to do it, but the program might help you.
3 ) Once you're logged in you have to get in a server. Search "world at war" or whatever and double-click on a server. Call of Duty: World at War Coop, for example.
4 ) Go to WaW's root and copy your CoDWaW.exe. You can do it with Lanfixed (I don't need to have Lanfixed copied now, but I did at the beginning, don't know why).
5 ) Go to C:\Users\~user~\AppData\Local\Activision\CoDWaW\players\profiles\ and create a folder with any name ("coop" in my example).
6 ) In the same folder you'll find a file called active.txt. Open it with Notepad and replace whatever is written there with the same name you gave to the folder ("coop" (without quotations) in my case). Save the file.
7 ) Open WaW with the original CodWaW.exe (or Lanfixed). You'll see the screen to select account. Press Cancel. Now you'll be disconnected but with your "new account" ready.
8 ) Open the console (enable it in Options > Game Options if needed) and type "r_fullscreen 0" without quotations. Go to Options > Graphics and change the proportions (1600x900 in my case, but I have two screens; reduce it if you only have one).
9 ) Replace active.txt with your usual username and save.
10 ) Open WaW again with the copied CoDWaW.exe (or Lanfixed). If you have it in fullscreen repeat 8 ).
11 ) Launch your mod and go to Co-op. The disconnected won't be able to play online but he will to play LAN. You have to create the lobby with this one and search the lobby (LAN) with the other. It didn't work for me the other way round.
12 ) Get in the lobby, start match and enjoy. NOTE: to change from one player to the other use [ALT + Tab].
If you try it let me know if it works for you. Hope it helps.
