For Phasmophobia players, if you have more than 3 friends but you want to play in the same lobby, this guide will show you how to play coop with more than 4 players, let’s check it out.
Yes you might have googled on how to play phasmophobia with more than 4 players. Well i didnt do so… So i started to go to work and change the game a bit. After i made the modification i started to google who had already made such a modification, (this was because i noticed a couple lobbies with more than 4 players). After finding someone else’s project on github i was able to see what they made their mod do. I personally wasn’t really a fan of it. Their mod changed the core of the game (by being able to add more ghost’s, change your name & colour, hunting delays etc.) This is quite funny ofcourse, but that defeats the spooky purpose of this game.
My mod is basically vanilla + 8 players and no cheats With more then 8 players the game becomes unstable and no fun anymore. i wouldnt even recconmend more then 6 tbh.
it was quite easy to mod, like any other unity game. Thank you developer for using photon! like i do in my games. (if i ever finish one that is lol)
Let’s go and start hunting ghost with all of your mates. Phasmophobia is still in development and will receive more updates. So lets first check if you have the same version as the modified file.
For this start phasmophobia. in the main menu you should see a server version on the bottem-leftthis version should be 0.174 like shown in the picture:
if all is good then you may go to through with the installation process. just make sure you dont install the mod if your version differates from the one in the picture (0.174). Ill update the guide when the game updates.
Installation & download link
Installing the mod is really simple. so lets go!
Right click Phasmophobia in your steam library and go to properties
Go to “local files” and click on “browse local files”
note: if you messed up your game install then just click “verify the integrity of the game”.
An explorer window with the local game files will now open.Now navigate to the “Phasmophobia_Data” folder
Now navigate to the “managed” folder
Here you can replace the “Assembly-CSharp.dll” with the modded file you’ve downloaded from the link
!! Be sure to backup your original “Assembly-CSharp.dll” file by copying it to another location or changing the name extension like i did!!
note: i also added the one that comes with the game, just so you have an second backup.
dont worries, the download button looks like a scam lol. I’ll get that changed soon
Starting a lobby and checking if it works
You can find a sign on the main menu showing you that the mod works. This is a simple text next to the server version. This also works as a reminder you still have the mod installed.
Please don’t try to join 4 player lobbys that arent modded and full. It wont work..
It might show like there is place for 8 players, but the server will decide that you are not allowed to join.
When starting a lobby make sure to select a map first then invite your friends with the code. (or when the lobby is open to the public make sure you change the map before you have more than 4 players).
this is just to prevent your game from crashing, this was the only bug i could find that would crash the game
What also could happen is that the lobby screen glitches (visually), so again first set everything up (items,map) and then invite your friends.
Kicking players is laggy. the board only has place for 4 entitys so kicking player 5 is close to impossible…
the ready and start buttons are a bit bugged. They should still work
Ok so we had allot of fun playing phasmophobia. But if you have any questions and or complaints send me a mail at
if you are the developer and very mad that i made this mod then send me a mail at:
(filtered whitelisted-wildcard so you can decide what my email address is today ;))
Ok so the core of the game is not designed for more then 4 playes. some things work better then others.
a funny glitch is that you can make a picture of one of your friends (that is not fully registered to the game) and it will become evidence as a dead body.
I tried to change the lobby to add more items, but after that try the item spawner pooped it’s pants. I dont want to change everything to make that work correctly. It’s not my game and i already think it’s not very nice of me for releasing this mod.
i didnt put allot of work in this mod, there are allot more talented modders then me so keep your eyes open
I hope we will soon see more updates of this great game! And (maybe) even upping the players size for asylum. Since that map is great to play with 6 gamers ;).
That’s all we are sharing today in Phasmophobia More Than 4 Player Coop (Game Modification), if there are anything you want to add please feel free to leave a comment below and we’ll see you soon.
