Alright.. Your writing started getting confusing after the first line or so, so I didn't read much.

If I understood this correctly, here's what you need to do.

Open STEAM's Games window. At the top, there's File, View, Games. Click on Games.

Click on Activate a Product on Steam.

Enter the Half-Life CD key that came with your CD. You should now be able to get Half-Life on Steam.

Once you have Half-Life on Steam, run it once.

Then, install SvenCoop to the following directory:

:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOUR-STEAM-ACCOUNT\half-life

Restart Steam. You should now be able to see both Half-Life and SvenCoop in your Steam's Games list.

Have fun :)

When you log into your Steam account and view the Steam Games list, you have to have installed a game called "Half-Life," and not a games called "Half-Life: Source," in order to play Sven Co-op. Half-Life runs on the Goldsource engine, while Half-Life: Source runs on the Source engine. Sven Co-op will only run on the Goldsource engine. If you do not have Half-Life anywhere in your list where you could download it and start playing the full version through Steam, then you will not be able to run Sven Co-op. Half-Life is available through Steam for a measly $10 however, and if you have a PayPal account you can easy buy it through Steam without having a credit card or your parent's supervision.

Why a credit card? You still should be able to ask the support for registering your CD key with your account.

Also, you can buy HL via PayPal or Click and buy which both can access your bank account without any need for a credit card.

HL: Source is, as says, running on the Source engine. SvenCoop is made for Half-Life with the GoldSrc engine (aka "Half-Life engine"). You CAN NEVER EVER run a mod which is made for an engine on a different engine.

Again, the only way to make a mod created for the Half-Life engine run on Half-LifeĀ² engine is re-creating it on the new engine. Or bribe Sven to drop SC 4.0 and create SC Source within few days... Gonna cost alot, I think.

#1 I'm an australian, you can still buy Half-life
#2 Half-life mods wont work on Half-Life Source fullstop
#3 Yes, Sven will work with Half-life, doesn't matter if it comes with Opposing Force
#4 Don't whine about your copied HL number not working in steam -.-

End.

So long as (in this scenario) you have a copy of for example, the original or a retail box of the game with the CD Key printed somewhere, you have a positive shot of activating it on your account regardless if another user is using it.

Refer to http://www.svencoop.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33990 for instructions on getting Half-Life activated on your account with your CD Key if it is already in use. You will need proof that you own the CD Key, such as a photo or scan of the CD Key printed on your Half-Life box, CD, etcetera.

Or just buy it from Steam. All you need is a bank account, no CC needed.
