View Full Version : Some beginner questions

Hello everybody.
First excuse my english.

I descover sven co-op yesterday and I find it very cool. But it is some questions.

1. Must I have a server to run sven co-op or can I create on the computer where I play?

2. Could I play on internet with a friend or must I make a lan?

3. And could I really play with my friends the original HL maps?

Excuse those questions that are probably simple for you, but I hasn't found answer in the other post :-( ( I think it is due of my bad english (sorry))

Thanks for your answer

1. - You can play in single-player by clicking Play SvenCo-op/LAN Game/Create Game, selecting a map, and clicking OK. Some maps require two players to advance, though, and most are very hard for a single player.

2. - You can play over the Internet... just have one player start an Internet game (Play SvenCo-op/Internet Game/Create Game), and the other player join. Or you could both join a public server.
All-Seeing Eye is a good program for finding servers:

3. - Yes, as long as you have Half-Life installed (not CS Retail or such). Just start a game using the map "singleplayermaps.bsp". Remember to install the SP Map Support Update (grab it from the Files page) - Server Install on the computer that's starting the game, Client Install on the computer that's joining.
