First of all, I love FAF, it makes the game so much better!
I am trying to play the campaigns through the coop mode in FAF. However the client downloads the coop game files (various .nx2 files) EXTREMELY slowly.
To start to play the first UEF mission took 4-5 hours, and when I went to play the second mission, it seems to have started downloading the same files again! As I write this its already been several hours, again with no end in sight. (It would be helpful to have a download meter so I know at least how long its going to take)
Am I doing something wrong? Is there an alternative way to do this?
I've considered just playing vanilla SUPCOM without FAF, but that would mean playing without the FAF, with its hotkeys and all the many improvements it comes with.
I have tried the "play offline" option available when FAF is loading up, but for campaign this appears to be broken, as objectives in the game don't seem to register and the mission simply never ends. (also, there does not seem to be anyway to play the original, non-FA SUPCOM missions either? Or have I missed something here?)
Please help! I really want to play this game, but its currently not feasible.
