    Re: Your cl.dll file differs from the servers

    That is an issue with the GoldSrc (Half-Life 1) engine, and it not having the major SteamPipe update. (this is not a Sven Co-op specific issue)

    To determine if your GoldSrc engine has the SteamPipe update:

    1. Run Half-Life
    2. Open the console
    3. Enter command: version
    4. If the EXE version is not 1.1.2.2 or higher, you do not have the SteamPipe update for Half-Life


    Best steps to solve this:

    1. Run Half-Life then close it (if you haven't already)
    2. Right click Half-Life in your Steam games
    3. Select Properties
    4. Select Local Files
    5. Select Verify Integrity
    6. Wait for this to finish then run Half-Life again
    7. Run Half-Life and follow the steps above to check if you've received the SteamPipe update


    If you still don't have the SteamPipe update:

    1. Run Half-Life then close it (if you haven't already)
    2. Right click Half-Life in your Steam games
    3. Select Properties
    4. Select Betas
    5. Choose Beta - Beta from the dropdown list
    6. Select Local Files
    7. Select Verify Integrity
    8. Wait for this to finish then run Half-Life again
    9. Run Half-Life and follow the steps above to check if you've received the SteamPipe update


    Here is what a good version command response should look like:
    Code:
    Protocol version 48
    Exe version 1.1.2.2/Stdio (valve)
    Exe build: 17:47:17 Apr 25 2013 (6027)

    It is possible if you haven't played Half Life in a while it will want to change the way it does things, this should also upgrade the copy HL on your machine.
