Campaign stuck on hard?

I am brand new to FAF. I am using it because running SCFA from steam crashes my whole computer after a couple minutes (now seconds) of game play. I figured out how to use FAF to start a game but when I start the campaign, I can not change the difficulty from Hard. Is there a way to do this?

In lobby when hosting the Co-op go and look for options, and the difficulty level.

(facepalm) I never saw the OPTIONS button before. Thanks.
