Strange problem I've got. When I "Start Server", it begins loading, and then... Throws me back to main menu, in console is string "LAN servers are restricted to local clients" -- well known problem... And when I start HLDS, and then connect through "Join Server" -- all is ok, but lots of bullshit lags........ Wtf? :wtf:

Create a shortcut of hlds.exe, right click on the shortcut, then Properties. The Target will look something like: E:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\hlrsecom\half-life\hlds.exe

Make it look like: "E:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\hlrsecom\half-life\hlds.exe" -game SvenCoop

Then launch your server from the shortcut. It should load the server up and execute the server.cfg in your Sven Co-op directory (so make sure you've got that configured).
