On the PC, my friend and I entered the forest for the first time and used the White Soapstone to co-op (my friend hosted). We progressed and defeated the Butterfly, and thus I was returned back to my world.
We then tried to co-op again and it failed; neither of us ever saw each others soapstone markings. Sif is still alive, shouldn't either of us be able to co-op still? We were still in the same game session when we defeated the Butterfly (thus no network changes were made etc).
My friend is SL42 and I'm SL41. Our NAT is open, ports are forwarded, firewall is off. We are in the area where the Butterfly is, and I'm (have not defeated Butterfly) trying to summon him but still cannot see his soapstone.
Why can we not see each others soapstones to co-op again?
