glen_drums Multiplayer Mod (BETA VERSION)
Well, it's been a long time in coming, but here it is!
We've been keeping this under wraps, as we thought it'd be a nice surprise for you all. Also, if we'd posted this in the WIP section, all we'd have got would have been pestering and folks constantly asking for a release date.
This is our Beta version of the multiplayer mod for Farming Simulator 2009. Please remember that it is still in it's infancy, and you may experience problems. Make sure to back everything up before you install this. I'll say it again... MAKE SURE YOU BACK EVERYTHING UP BEFORE YOU INSTALL THIS MOD! We can't be held responsible for any loss or damage!
Once you've downloaded the zip, you will see a readme file. In there, there is an internet link. Copy this into your browser and hit send. You will be faced with a login/signup screen. Type the username you wish to use in the multiplayer mode, this can be your ls-uk username, if you wish. Next, add a new password to use.
You will now be logged on to the multiplayer server.
When you've done that, simply take the zip and copy it to your mods folder, just like any other mod!
Next, start a new game, not an existing one, and the option should be available to you in the top left of the screen. (If it doesn't show up, you may not have the patch installed, or there may be a conflict between your mods. If this occurs and you can't fix it, please reinstall your game files and try again. If you still have problems, please PM me and I'll try to help!)
Ok, so, you've now (hopefully) got the multiplayer window showing in your new game. You will be presented with a list of fellow users. Click on a user's name, then on the chat button to display an instant message box between you and the other user. (This is much like MSN.) You can communicate together at any time by performing this action. To the bottom left, there is a "FARM NOW" button. When you click this button, a request is sent to the other user, asking them to click the button also. Once this is done, your game will begin as usual, only with your chosen "partner in crime" standing next to you!
Please be aware that the farmer figures limbs don't move, they are only there for reference, to show you where your fellow player is standing. It looks weird, but, like I said, this is still in testing!
Also, please note that, at the moment, only two players are able to play any one game at a time. We tried three players on a manure spreading run, but the systems froze and we overloaded the servers, it really got messy... Couldn't get rid of the smell for days, lol!
There are a few issues that we are aware of:
If you try to do anything on your own, (without another player) in game, on a multiplayer savegame, the whole thing will freeze. We think this is a scripting bug, and we're trying to fix it. Just remember, if you've played a savegame with another person in multiplayer, don't try to play the same savegame on your own (for example, starting threshing or seeding, or entering a vehicle). If one of you wants a day off or is pulling a "sicky", you both get a day off, lol!
When you are both standing outside of a vehicle, in close proximity to each other, don't use the flashlight (by pressing the "F" key) as the game will freeze.
Don't try to enter a vehicle that your partner is already in, or, yup, you guessed it... It'll freeze!
If you find any other bugs with this mod, please let me know. We're hoping to have more functions available soon.
For helping me with this, couldn't have done it without you guys! We had some good laughs making this, and hope to have some more with it too!
