Hiyah. Just trying to get it to work with STEAM.

However, the moment a player dies, they crash to desktop, with a dialog box with the following message:

FATAL ERROR:

SV_StartSound: volume = 510

This is on a clean STEAM installation (wth the half-life GCF) + SVEN (No other stuff, so no half-life-single player addon or whatever it was that it wanted me to install).

Anytime a player dies at all, it occurs, and also, randomly throughout play.

to reproduce
1) Start a game on LAN
2) type 'kill' in console
crash!

FIXED.

THis is apparently a common problem.

to fix, type in console

suitvolume 1

Apparently the HEV suit was too high a volume for half-life to cope.

Are you sure about this, Vek?
I changed that value to 1 and STEAM still crashes for me when I die in Sven.

This is getting frustrating.. Although it is a good incentive for not dying. :P
