Will SP Campaigns be playable as 2P COOP?

Will all single player campaigns and missions for the AH-64D be playable as two player co-op with a human pilot and gunner in the same helicopter? It'd be awesome if you could do entire campaigns with a buddy in the front/back seat. 😊

I really hope ED will change it campaign system so all campaigns for all modules can be co-op in the future.

That'd be cool, but I was thinking only for multicrew modules where you fly as a single aircraft. IIRC the issue with flying SP Campaigns/Missions in multiplayer is that triggers don't work properly with multiple player controlled aircraft. That's why I was wondering whether it will be possible in the AH-64D where you're in the same aircraft and there won't be any issues with triggers and such.

Yeah, I understood. But I believe DCS treats everyone as different enteties, so the triggers and such won't matter even if you're in the "same aircraft". Unfortunately. I believe I read this as somebody asked the same for the Tomcat. I could be wrong though, as this would be totally awesome!

This would be Awesome if they could get this to work. I certainly hope the dynamic campaign will be multiplayer too.

The challenge is protecting IP so that the  missions cant be copied arbitrarily

Absolutely true! But I've read that several Campaign DLC creators would love a new system that supports multiplayer for all owners of a campaign, but currently it just doesn't.
Hopefully the new dynamic campaign system will fill the gap somewhat. I just love some of those scripted ones.

I would love this as well. Would let you and your buddy familiarize with the ac and each other before entering multiplayer. I would support requiring both parties to own both module and campaigns. That is totally fair. Would also make a good DC even better.

 

I think a secondary effect would also pull more into MP. Would potentially lesson the learning curve to radios and server etiquette. Hopefully we get it in the future.

Yeah, that'll probably be version 4.0 though, v1.0 will come next year.

Source? I wouldn't mind some lovely coop. And I certainly wouldn't mind a dynamic campaign engine.

But you can always just open the mission in the ME and re-rig it for multiplayer if it isn't too crazy on the scripting. It's just a lot of unnecessary work.

I would gladly pay for a good coop campaign that wouldn't require more than 2 players. Online coop servers are ok but they get pretty boring quick, no story etc. Good community made coop missions can be hard to find and when you find something interesting you notice it requires like +5 people. I have only one friend who plays DCS and i'm too lazy to find any new people to play with.

You can't with a DLC campaign, as the copy protection prevents that. The included campaigns and missions are different.

I don’t know about nowadays, but when the original black shark was released I edited the SP campaign miz files and added clients. Worked well for most missions.

Nowadays you can add the client slots to flight (group), so if there is no copy protection or trigger/script events that use the unit/player, but triggers are evaluated per the group and zones for "all in zone" not too tight, it is not too hard.

With the Dual cockpit multiplayer we really could use an upgrade to the DLC protection that would basically check,if you have a license before joining such a mission on a server/hosted game from a buddy.

I love the idea of flying some of the campaigns with a buddy... or a flight of human controlled client aircraft.
