I was trying to play a 3-player campaign with some friends earlier and it had been working fine up until this patch. We didn't start the save file with a 3/4 player mod so were were using the hex editor method of changing the value of NumPlayers in the main_1.pak file. As of the patch it appears we can no longer do this as line <attribute id="NumPlayers" value="2" type="1" /> no longer exists.

Was this intentionally removed? If so is there some other way for us to continue the campaign with 3 players without starting over using a mod?

Thanks in advance.
