    Post Sven Co-op 4.6 RELEASED!


    We've finally finished testing Sven Co-op 4.6, and now it's time for the rest of you to have a go. Spread the word!

    This release features:
    • They Hunger Co-op: Episode 2
    • A new boss monster: The Kingpin
    • Many new and improved maps
    • Greatly improved HLSP and Opposing Force storyline support
    • Half-Life: Uplink co-op
    • Lots of powerful new mapping features
    • Tons of bug fixes and changes (e.g. Shock rifle secondary fire can now charge player HEV suits)
    • AI improvements
    • All-new custom sounds for the Bodyguard
    and much more! Check out the Full Changelog, here!

    Remember, to play Sven Co-op you need to own Half-Life (NOT HL:Source). To play Opposing Force maps in Sven Co-op, you need to own Opposing Force. Both are currently on special.


    Click Here for the download links!

    (If you're able to provide permanent mirrors for the files, please e-mail the links to mirrors@svencoop.com or post them in this forum thread. Thanks!)

    While downloading, why not check out the Manual?
    Also remember to grab the Land of Legends map pack!
    Server ops: When running a 4.6 dedicated server, you must add "-num_edicts 3072" to your HLDS commandline or Launch Options.


    Due to other responsibilities, I'm afraid this may be the last Sven Co-op release I'm heavily involved in. Many thanks to all the team members, testers and other contributors who made this release possible, and to all of the fans for their support over the years!! Sniper and the others still have a lot of plans for the next version, so look forward to that.

    Merry Christmas, everyone!

    -Sven

    None of my friends can host a server on 4.6 without crashing after 10 or so minutes, aswell as it breaks some of the pre 3.0 maps that worked fine for sven 4.5. It might just be me but this release seems really buggy and I think Im going to go back to hosting on 4.5

    Try a clean reinstall. We've been beta testing this release for a while, and it's probably our most stable release ever.

    Also remember to add "-num_edicts 3072" to the commandline or launch options if running a dedicated server. If it crashes with any sort of error message, please let us know what it is.

    We found that setting it too high actually steams memory from another important limited thing. 3072 is a compromise -- no maps we know of actually use more entities than that anyway. It's about 12 times higher than the original Half-Life I think (iirc it started at 256, and was later raised to 512 after we petitioned Valve. Could have the figures confused though).

    finally i can remove all the svencoop versions.
    being on the beta team is tough work
    Do it with passion, or not at all.

    Valve default entity limit has been 900 since steam. It was 800 on WON.

    Hmm, yeah, I had that completely wrong. I was confusing it with the model limit, for one thing. Haven't slept much lately .

    Hey guys! Merry Christmas and congrats on the release! =D
    I'm encountering a problem, that anytime I disconnect from a game, the game throws me to the main menu, as it should do, but the sounds from the map I was on keep playing, the mouse lags, and the game freezes! I did a fresh install of both HL, HL:OF, and SvenCoop. Any ideas? Thx in advance! =D

    To stop the sound you can write cl_stopsound in the console and press enter. No idea about the freezing.

    Re: Sven Co-op 4.6 RELEASED!

    Whenever I try playing older puzzle maps like RECO random items just arent there anymore (mo disk, wooden mount, flares ect) And even after a clean reinstall I still get random crashes when im hosting, hl1 just stops responding.
