0001078: Strife conversations are completely broken online
I suppose this is an ancient bug. You can't buy anything in Strife online.
1. zandronum.exe -file npc_dialogue_desync_test.wad -host
2. Connect a client to the server and join the game.
3. Run up to the ShotgunGuy and press +use.
4. Select the second option (I AM BROKE) and press ENTER. You're supposed to receive a coin.
No tags attached.

The NPC issues aren't bugs.. for there's no netcode for them to be bugs of. The entire conversation netcode is non-existant at the moment.

I was under this impression that this was the client's responsibility. Not the server's. i.e. You go talk to an NPC, the NPC gives you a coin. All the server knows is that a coin was added to the inventory.

Did actual Strife ever have Co-op?
2017-05-16 10:42   
This is still an issue. I cannot interact with NPCs in Strife in a Multiplayer capacity.
2017-05-16 14:22   
Strife never had net code because Strife is a single player game. The main game isn't meant for online.

Should be working better since this was committed:

Pulled the latest changes and I was able to receive coins, buy medkit, kill the zombie and bring the ear to the demon without issue online.
