I've been busy these last days with a lot of wonderful friends which have visited or been visited by us.
The last days I've been working a bit here and there on the 2-Player co-op code and today I show you the first in-game chat ever in the multiplayer "lobby".
Today I recorded the game in windows with CamStudio 2.00. In Ubuntu linux I use gtkrecordmydesktop to record the screen.
When you click multiplayer, you get to select if you want to host or join a game. If you want to host, you only have to type in the port number you want to listen to. This is the best way since many have a port forwarded in their router that they can use and this way you don't have to forward a new one! If you select join game you have to type in the IP adress you want to connect to, and then the port number.
As usual I have a YouTube video for you. Here you see my good friend Simon from the northern part of Sweden connecting to me and we have the first ever in-game chat in The Forgotten Planet Multiplayer "lobby".

Until next post!
