If one of your friends owns a server and youd like to join, you either use the shortcut CrysisCoopDemo or the Crysis 2 Coop Launcher.exe ("Launch Crysis 2 Co-op (32-bit)") . As soon as youre logged in, your friends server should be findable in the list of available servers. If this is not the case, just type your friends IP-address into the window "Connect with IP-address".

Part Five: Miscellaneous

1. Due to the fact that I dont own an English version of Windows and its officially not possible to change the standard language to another in Windows 7 Home Premium, I had to translate everything in English. Thats why there could be some differences between both languages (German/English).

2. If youve got any further questions, if you find any mistakes or if youve got a suggestion for improvement, then feel free to tell me.
