Nope, no other way to play Sven online as Steam is the not only the best way, but the only way to play Sven online.

And the reason your CD Key is already in use is because your brother downloaded Steam first and registered the CD Key you both shared on a LAN. In order to prevent piracy you need a seperate CD Key for each Steam Account.

You need to buy another copy of Half-Life. No wonder why your brother did not want you to get Steam.

I wouldn't recommend Won2 because you would probibaly be staring at an error box more than actual gameplay, especially with the release of 3.5.

Steam is the best way to play Half-Life n' stuff, get another copy of HL; it's not that expensive. I even found it for sale for $0.01. Besides, abondoning Steam is like abandoning Valve...

Thats steam and comes with halflife free, use that if u have a [free] fileplanet account. As for WON2 i dont know much about that.

Whats WON2 and how do i get it?

Won2 is a replaced server for the Won system, included in the new unofficial Half-Life Patch. It might work with SvenCo-op 3.0, but SvenCo-op 3.5 is made uncompatible for Won. Even if you would decide to play on Won2, I doubt that there is anyone else playing online there.

Well im not geting steam i think i'll just leave it.......

Why exactly do you hate steam?Steam is a big improvement from WON.

Whats wrong with my link? is steam with *free* halflife, therefore you can play svencoop.
Or is it that you dont want to spend the time to make a fileplanet account....

09-08-2005, 05:24 PM
yeah the fileplanet account thingie is dumb and i found won 2 anyways so i'll see if i can host on that my server name will be called Entmod and more, hopefully i will see ya'll some of you in there.

09-08-2005, 06:15 PM
Barely anyone here plays SC anymore, let alone that fake won. BTW: I think won2 is illegal.

09-08-2005, 06:26 PM
OH i didnt know that i better get off it then :(

When I try to register my CD-Key Steam says the Key is already in use; what do I do? (http://support.steampowered.com/cgi-bin/steampowered.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=2&p_created=1091584311&p_sid=9TEi*FMh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYnk9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0 yNzAmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PSZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1)

Not only does nobody play SvenCo-op on Won2, but if it has Entmod on it, the chance will sink even more that people would join.

Sheesh just go buy another copy of Half-Life, you could probably find HL Platinum Edition for 10-20 bucks somewhere.

10-08-2005, 05:55 PM
Probly is just the person that sits on the computer all day and play stuff I used to have 350 dollars! Till I got robbed >:O >: ( .

11-08-2005, 08:06 PM

11-08-2005, 08:11 PM

11-08-2005, 08:45 PM

Many people who can make programs could make ten times better programs than Steam... Steam only runs the game executables, thats all. I wonder how can a professional programmer from a popular team like Valve make such a crappy program. :|

15-08-2005, 01:52 PM
its actually not bad, i hear so much about Steam being shit, but i cant complain about it does what it say on the tin it had a poor start.

wait just though up a compliant Friend list :). hasnt worked in about a year it was a good idea i hope they try make it work some time soon

15-08-2005, 02:43 PM
Hunter, u seem stupid, if you and your brother installed HL with the same cd-key, it would obviously dont work becouse your brother is also using it. Buy another HL cd, you must be poor to think its expensive!

And WON2 would work in a chance of 0.0000000000000000001/100000000000000000000000

18-08-2005, 03:48 AM
How about play with you're brothers account.It doesnt cost you anything,only changing names all the time(if youre brother plays sven co-op).

18-08-2005, 11:40 AM
Ive always been a steam fanboy only because ive hardly had any problems with it, i only have ever had 2, when the CS:S beta was released and when HL2 preloading started, apart from that its awesome because you do not ever need the half life CD ever again, and you download it, and *ping!* half life works!!!

dude, buy hl2 silver or gold, you get the WHOLE of the hl series as well as HL2 stuff AND the forthcoming DOD: source, hl1 source i believe is gold only, but mmh, steam definatly is the way forward. dude, you can i) buy a shitty game with your £10 or $20 or whatever, or ii) buy a copy of half life for £10 or $20, or HL2 for $40 with ALL of valves games, ever. thats a big list, and a lot of games for $10 more, steam also has regular updates that are automatically downloaded so no queing for hours on stupid websites (fileplanet) to get patches, its a huge improvement on WON for that matter, WON had so many bugs it was silly, now steam makes games run smoother, stabler (more so than WON! out_of_sfxt anyone?) and has half life 2!!! what more do you want?

if you dont want steam, your saying good-bye to hundreds of mods, regular good updates and most importantly, multiplayer. your saying "stfu!" to lots of awesome work, that really extends half life to a new level, and shows why half life is the number #1 online played game, ever. you can find other games out there, but none with the support half life and half life 2 has. look at this site for example, hundreds of thousands of people have played this mod, same with others. you cant play multiplayer mods without steam. no question about it. trying to without is a thouroughly dumb idea.

as for the ASE idea, nope, half life wont let you play unless you can AUTH to the WON or STEAM servers, and as WON doesnt exist any more for half life. and i reiterate, steam is the only viable option.

I must admit the steam friends is a joke, just use Xfire (www.xfire.com) instead.

uno we need steam but most of us hate it i hate it for one reason the passwords i mean like im playing on a server and we go to the next map while it loads it stops and says NEED STEAM TICKET ID and a few numbers turns out my bro or one of his friends has logged into his account so then i cant play ONLINE

21-08-2005, 05:34 PM
Well, steam does work, so why not just use it. Yes, I do despise it, but until there is something better, or until I get xfire Steam is the best. If you have a HL: Blue Shift, cd key you can use that in place of half-life 1 cd key.

21-08-2005, 08:05 PM
hl1 source i believe is gold onlynope i got it in the retail collectors edition along with the t-shirt and a dvd hard copy(game software)

21-08-2005, 08:41 PM
i got the plat pack along with it because i registered with steam before it came out and used a free hl2 deal that came with my old graphic card
