How to play Coop?

Hello,

I was really excited about the Red DLC, mostly because it finally supports COOP.
Now the promised COOP-Features are:
- Red adds two-player co-op for all single-player campaign missions,
- Full co-op (2 vs. AI) for the single player campaign
- Frozen Synapse: Red allows both local and online 2 player co-op for the 55 mission campaign

So, how the hell do I start a coop-game?
We searched around the game and the internet for 2 hours now, we just can´t get how we can play it.

I got Frozen Synapse + Red, the Red-Campaign is there and it works, so is the new hotseat mode.
But there are only the Multiplayer-Options inside Hotseat, there´s no coop.
And if I start a new Campaign, it won´t even give me choice whether coop or not...

It´s really annoying to have to search like an idiot for such a key feature :(

Thanks for help

1. Start game.
2. Log in.
3. Click Online.
4. Look at what's written pretty much right in the centre of the screen.
5. Enjoy.

1. I was not asking about Online-Play
2. I was talking about COOP
3. I can´t find the Hotseat option for COOP see "allows both local and online 2 player co-op"
4. Maybe I just start a Sandbox and open the game twice, going online with both instances, and join each other :roll: great idea
5. Thanks

There isn't a co-op hotseat mode.
If you're both in the same room you can play the single player game as normal and come to an agreement on how to proceed.

Wait, what? You´re kidding me, right?
There IS a Hotseat-mode, and there IS a coop-mode, but there IS NO Hotseat-coop-mode?
What the hell is that? That is incredibly ridiculous, why should the Developers implement it that way?
That makes no sense, take turns in Singleplayer-mode, sure!

I urgently hope there is a money-back option.
In this case, there is zero need for owning the game legally.

What a letdown.

Update:
Wow, now it´s getting REALLY absurd.
There are guys who managed to cook the game and make online-modes(like coop) available in offline-mode for hotseat-use.
Great, another huge achievement by the Developers,
some radnom guys have to cook the game and implement a STANDARD FEATURE.
