    About VAC

    If you are running a dedicated server, please add -insecure to your launch options. VAC doesn't even work properly in Sven Co-op. People have been known to be banned for no reason playing on SC servers with VAC enabled.

    With VAC enabled, users can't use bloom mod, and the users that were VAC banned for trying out the bloom mod (I know of many) can not play on your server.

    So for fucks sake, disable VAC! No one cheats on Sven Co-op anyway, and it's bugged shit!

    -insecure

    DO IT.

    I think Sven Co-op should have -insecure enabled by default. :\

    Re: About VAC

    Good idea. I don't see anyone really cheating on SC anyway. Even if someone hacked, it would not be that big problem as in games like CS.

    Anyway, VAC should be disabled, yes.

    Re: About VAC

    I got VAC Banned from using a once-undetectable OpenGL hack that ran in the background of the system that would allow me to wallhack and crap; all I ever used it for was Sven Co-op, and mostly (like 99% of the time) for debugging purposes for mapping.

    And THAT is crap.

    So I had to create another account and buy Half-Life for $10. -_-

    Thats not possible, because it is serverside and has to be passed on to hlds via start parameters.. afaik

    anyway.. i added it to my startline.. should be active on next servercrash.. i guess in approx. 20 minutes

    Just always check for up-to-date hacks if you really need one.

    So you knowingly installed hacks on your computer, got VAC banned, and now you expect sympathy from us or what?

    Sure cheating is sparse in Sven Co-op, but I'd rather not allow some fag to come in and speed hack the game. Still pisses off other players.

    Ban him then. Servers where there are never admins to check if everything is right suck anyway.

    Re: About VAC

    Admins can't attend servers 24/7, which is a good argument for leaving VAC switched on.

    Re: About VAC

    24/7 is not needed, but there should be one twice a day.
    If there are admins all the time it isn't fun either.
    Cannot start flaming because admins think they must stop you. xD

    voteban ftw.

    Players moderating themselves cuts down on the stress level.

    No reason? Um, wouldn't everybody playing SvenCo-op get banned if it was happening for no reason? There's gotta be more to the story.

    However, if what you're saying is true, we may see a whole community get "delayed-banned" soon...

    We'd rather not allow players to start ban votes, but kick votes are fine.

    Randomly happening, not to everyone. VAC will glitch because it is not properly supported by Sven Co-op.

    Don't know about you, but GL_wireframe stopped working for me after I bought new PC (8500GT -.-).

    Re: About VAC

    I have also noticed after you change the map when you first start your server, VAC is immediately disabled on your server automatically.

    Re: About VAC

    Not on my server...

    I have plenty of times restarted my server with VAC active and joined instantly and changed map instantly and it did not disable VAC...

    Alright. I'll check out my config, put secure 1, and see if that fixes mine.

    Same, VAC has always remained on if I choose to use it.

    Re: About VAC

    fine = okay

    It is okay for players to vote kick someone. Banning should be up to the server admin, not other players.
