    Sven Co-op Update Released [Build 1213242]

    An update for Sven Co-op has been released. If you are running a dedicated server please use SteamCmd to update your servers. Those of you that were using the public release candidate can remain to do so, as this branch now matches the standard branch.

    Please be aware that your FOV may be more zoomed out than normal. This is because of an aspect ratio fix particularly for wide screen users. We advise you change your FOV setting to the new default value in your game console as follows:

    default_fov 70

    Changes are as follows:

    Notable changes

    • All components now compile successfully in Linux allowing us to provide an alpha state of the game client.
      • The Linux client is provided literally as is. (We know there will be plenty of bugs.)
      • No official presence on the Steam store will be indicated yet.
      • No official support will be mainstream as this is not considered a finished product at all.
    • Fixed a severe stability issue when the entity count exceeds 2048.
    • Fixed three causes of svc_bad drops.
    • Map Robination is back with a major revise.
    • Map Sector E has been removed by author request.
    • Removed software rendering mode.

    Code: Game library

    • Added animation support for env_glow entities.
    • Clamped CVAR default_fov from 50 to 110, with a new default of 70 (not 90) to account for an engine fix.
    • Clamped CVAR sv_zmax (and subsequently gl_zmax) to 4096-16000 to prevent rendering artefacts (with the sky) and performance issues at greater distances.
    • Fixed a crash if a func_tank is removed while being used by a player or NPC.
    • Fixed a crash if a player tries to use func_tankcontrols that points to removed tank.
    • Fixed a crash if too many forced player models are in the list.
    • Fixed a crash when monsters try to calculate the last known position of a breakable door for attack.
    • Fixed a rare crash when a player is killed by the world, or by another player.
    • Fixed a rare crash when looking up an entity reference in utility functions.
    • Fixed a rare infinite loop case when searching through the node graph.
    • Fixed ambient_generic not stopping its sound when killed.
    • Fixed CVAR plugin_list_file being ignored by the server configuration because it was being looked at too soon.
    • Fixed CVAR sv_zmax not being initialised.
    • Fixed exploit with observers entering cheat codes that cause the player's solid to reset, enabling observers to touch objects again.
    • Fixed forced player model not being reverted after a map change.
    • Fixed forced player models list being carried over to next map, and still taking affect.
    • Fixed incorrect box position check for brush entities.
    • Fixed inventory UI not being cleared after a map change.
    • Fixed satchels for disconnected players being left on the ground. (Always attempt to remove satchel charges owned by the player, even if the player doesn't have satchel charges equipped.)
    • Fixed severe lag while dead due to HUD messages being sent every frame.
    • Fixed sky light colour and angle being incorrect due to some server CVARs not being initialised after a map change.
    • Fixed spore effects not being removed, causing a random floating spore to sometimes appear.
    • Fixed stats for disconnected players still being logged.
    • Fixed the view port storing map names in an array that is too small, now matches the engine size.
    • Fixed trigger_random being unable to set the same target index multiple times.
    • Fixed weapons showing their zoomed crosshair when you haven't zoomed in. (Any FOV below 50 is now considered zoomed in.)
    • On-line donor lookups for each player are now throttled to one query every 15 seconds to prevent excessive CPU usage (and thread count) whenever a donor feature is attempted to be used and the query had failed.
    • Removed a ton of redundant code and libraries.
    • Unregistered various CVARs from the game library as they are already registered by the game engine. (Fixes those "already registered" messages in the server console when a map starts.)

    Code: Engine

    • All required components now compile successfully for a Linux client to work.
    • CVAR brightness is now 1 by default. (In case you delete your configuration file and it resets to 0.)
    • CVAR crosshair is now enabled by default.
    • CVARs bottomcolor and topcolor are now clamped to range to 0-255.
    • Fixed a crash on the Linux server if a player connects before a map is running.
    • Fixed a crash when gibs are produced due to CVAR r_decals being 0.
    • Fixed a crash when looking at an entity with no model and solid SOLID_BBOX.
    • Fixed a crash when opening the game options due to a null variable.
    • Fixed a crash when passing an invalid game to the game parameter.
    • Fixed a possible crash when checking light styles.
    • Fixed a severe stability issue when the entity count exceeds 2048.
    • Fixed FOV scaling in the incorrect direction, so wide screen users don't get some of their view chopped vertically.
    • Fixed issues parsing the hash '#' character in console commands.
    • Fixed particle effects not always working on Linux servers.
    • Fixed performance issues to due checking CVAR cl_lw constantly.
    • Fixed server UI not showing the map list if its longer than 4074 bytes.
    • Fixed server-side temporary beams (i.e. those produced by the Shock Trooper) having incorrect positions.
    • Fixed three causes of svc_bad drops.
    • Removed a temporary workaround for the client game library being loaded twice. (Proper fix is now in place.)
    • Removed a ton of redundant code and libraries.
    • Removed obsolete CVAR sv_voicequality.
    • Removed software rendering mode.
    • Removed spectator proxy.

    Code: Sound

    • Fixed a memory leak when adding a sentence.
    • Fixed global replacement pitch being ignored by monsters if they had a hard-coded pitch.
    • Fixed sound origin not updating correctly when being heard via a camera.
    • Fixed an integer overflow when processing custom materials for footsteps.

    Code: Non-playable characters

    • Alien Grunt: Added melee engage distance skill CVAR. (sk_agrunt_melee_engage_distance)
    • Alien Grunt: Added weapon options.
    • Alien Grunt: Berserkers deal 30 damage. (sk_agrunt_berserker_dmg_punch)
    • Alien Grunt: Reduced default alien grunt melee damage to 20. (sk_agrunt_dmg_punch)
    • Voltigore: Increased blast radius warning for NPCs.

    Code: Equipment

    • Crowbar: Added unused primary attack animation.
    • Crowbar: Changed animation for throwing the crowbar.
    • Crowbar: Idle animation implemented.
    • Inventory: Fixed a crash when dying with an item selected.
    • Inventory: Fixed item not being destroyed if the collection limit has been reached. (No point in having an item on the floor that can never be collected!)
    • Inventory: Fixed item not being thrown forwards when return time is set to -1 (never).

    Code: AngelScript

    • Added a catch-all for ammo entities, so that AngelScript ammo entities can be given to players.
    • Added capability to detect if a map is forcing player models.
    • Added IgnoreConditions() for monsters.
    • Exposed StartTask() for NPCs.
    • Fixed the CVAR as_script_log_max not being taken into account by the AngelScript log.
    • Regular expression functionality now available.
    • Removed a workaround for a crash when trying to create custom entities with CreateNamedEntity. (Proper fix in place.)
    • Removed unnecessary console output regarding player models having a ./ in the path.

    Maps

    • Increased credits on easy to 10000 from 8000.

    • Adjusted timing in winning cut-scene.

    Really happy about all the great changes made to Hammer.

    But when I start the game and try to go open the Option, this happens, crashing the game:

    No more Software mode? My computer can't run OpenGL mode very stably!

    What version of windows are you using? That somewhat looks like Windows 10. If there is a compatibility mode try running svencoop.exe as Windows 7.

    Aren't assertions debug only code? Would that mean you released debug libraries?

    It just keeps re-opening the window. Both other buttons just kill the game process completely.

    @Duggles: Doesn't do nothing.

    Verified game cache, etc. all the usual mumbo-jumbo. I try to reinstall the game and see if that helps anything.
    Update: Reinstalling fixed it. Now to find out if it was the playermodels I had installed (tho the active one was robo), the custom spray or custom maps.)

    mapcycle.txt along with mapvote.cfg have probably been modified (Sector E removed) so that makes sense, but I got nothing for motd.txt
    I've made it a habit to copy out all config files I have made modifications to before updating, just to be on the safe side.

    No problems with options here on Windows 8.1. While trying to break it I discovered the "Mute sound when window inactive" setting which I can't believe I missed from an earlier update (thanks for adding that!). Can't wait to try out the Linux client when I get a chance.

    ^ You can't. Bye-bye now. Say hi to WAR_nuker for us (a D3D casualty).

    Seriously though, there are good reasons for it's removal. You probably wouldn't be able to play much longer once the renderer upgrades start. Though I am a bit curious why it would be removed now instead of when the upgrades actually happen. Was this part of SK's mass removal of code?

    I get this on Windows 7 when I have the uber player model pack (I have a total of 4596 player models in svencoop_addon) and open the options menu. :[
    It was fine before, there was just a bit of a delay.

    I can confirm that my model pack doesn't work on windows 10 either.

    Yes.. My modelpack.

    Judging from the error message, the problem is that you guys just have too many player models. Until the limit is raised, you should be able to get around the error by removing some of your models.

    First of all: Awesome, a new patch! Thank you guys

    Quick question / potential bug report: Is it possible that there's something wrong with the new donor lookup thing? I'm not a donor yet (shame on me) but a few friends of mine who are report that they can't get their donor icon to show (regardless of their cl_hidextra setting), nor get any of the perks to work.

    Edit: After a mapchange, the icons of (as far as I know) all in-game donators suddenly reappeared. Strange.

    Are there seriously more than 4096 player models with compatible animations..? A choice of 1000 is just excessive.

    We did notice this internally a couple of times but usually sorted itself out magically after a short while. Didn't seem to affect all of us.

    Yeee, I'd like to eventually write a script to get the most commonly used player models, gotta wait for write to file though~

    Most just used it to prevent seeing dozens of helmets running around constantly. Sad it's crashing the game now tho.
    EDIT: Friend of mine who also uses that gigantic modelpack just said his option menu is working just fine. Weird.

    And yeah, if you can't run OpenGL...maybe seriously consider upgrading your machine.

    Three causes of svc_bad were addressed. That doesn't imply it has been completely removed. If people are still getting discpnnected due to svc_bad then we're going to need more information about why it's happening. What map are they playing on, is the server using any AS/Metamod plugins, etc.?
