Hello, I just installed the mod and it works with MP no problem. I'd like to have your permission to use the link and post as a guide on steam for others to use 1.3 mods with multiplayer. Many thanks for the update 1.3 :D

Would you be willing to include a few things I made in the past that slightly improves v1.3? They should not interfere with GOG or v1.3 functionality.

I think I will add 'Exit to Windows' in multiplayer and extended instant action options.

@Spiret: You didn't create this patch by compiling any of the actual scripts, right? It was done through splicing LVL chunks together and whatnot with hex editing?

Soooo...This is clearly the "lite" version. Can I install the full version (117) and use this to update it to work with MP?

@DeerTrap: If you want the side changes you should install the Unofficial v1.2 patch first and then v1.3. r117 is outdated, don't use it.

I would highly prefer it if you didn't call this the UnOfficial v1.3 Patch r129. That already existed. At the very least increase the revision number to r130. Not doing so is just going to confuse a ton of people. I haven't tested this nor do I know what exactly was included/excluded, so I can't say if all of the obscure features still work or not.

I didn't change the revision number because for Retail users nothing chaged. This version only adds compatible with new mutiplayer, no new features. And this version replaces some scripts which already changed in v1.3 patch: ifs_mp_sessionlist and ifs_mp_lobby. So, it is not a new revision, it is just r129 with multiplayer compatible. If I will name revision r130, people will prefer it to r129, because the revision number is higher. I checked comments on Reddit/Moddb and found that some users think that if they will install this patch on a Retail copy, they will have new multiplayer. That's why I saved the revision number. It is a good old v1.3 patch r129. If user will install it on a Retail copy, installer will extract unmodified version of the unofficial patch. It user will install it on Steam or GOG, installer will extract r129 with changes for multiplayer compatible.

But if you insist, I'll change the revision number to r130 after the next GOG update.

The problem is if you tell people to install r129 some will download it from the wrong location and then complain when they lose networking. Changing it to r130 fixes that even if it causes retail users to unnecessarily re-install. The less chances for fragmentation and confusion the better.

I haven't run your installer. Does it automatically detect the game version or is it asking the user? Personally I think I would have added the networking support as an installation option like those other options, but you created it so it's up to you how to do it. Feel free to update the readme and changelog with your changes if you haven't already done so.

I agree with Zerted. Go ahead and up the version number to 130. It's common practice to do so with a fix, even if it doesn't even apply to all versions/platforms/whatever.

I thought that I have no permissions to change the revision number because I am not the original author of the 1.3 patch. But if you allow, I'll change the revision number to r130 after the next GOG update.

Sorry to ask, but it seems this issue is not resolved.
I wanted to play the campaign in co-op with a friend, any news on this? Will it be possible after the fix?

Its becuase the gog update has not come out yet. Though if this patch is going to be called r130, maybe just inlcuded that fix and just upfate to r131 when the time comes.
