    Explosive Crate Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    [DOWNLOAD HERE]

    [CHANGELOG] [GAME MANUAL] [COMMUNITY HUB]


    If you've donated to the mod at any time, you should automatically receive the in-game bonus features in the Steam version of Sven Co-op. If you don't see them after trying on a couple of different servers, please send me your Steam ID (e.g. STEAM_0:1:23456) together with the real name and e-mail address you used when donating so we can identify the donation.

    After installing the game, Sven Co-op's SDK and Dedicated Server will be available under Tools in your Steam Library (use the dropdown at the right of the Search box). For information on how to set up your own dedicated server, check the "Running a Server" section of the game manual. You will need to forward port 27015 (TCP/UDP) to run any server.

    To disable Survival Mode, add the following line to your server.cfg and/or listenserver.cfg file:
    as_command survival_enabled 0

    Known issues:

    • If your mouse isn't working correctly in the main menu, or the game window is too big and extends off the edge of the screen:
      • Navigate to your \Steam\steamapps\common\Sven Co-op\ folder
      • Right-click svencoop.exe and choose Properties
      • Switch to the Compatibility tab
      • Enable the checkbox for "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"
      • Click OK
      Hopefully this won't be necessary in future versions.
    • With the massive influx of players following the release, a few servers have been somewhat overloaded. It appears Windows servers are currently more stable than Linux servers. We'll investigate this further.
    • Metamod is currently not compatible with Sven Co-op 5.0 servers. We're working on updating it, but for now do not attempt to use it.
    • Apparently the Install_OpFor_Support and Install_bshift_Support scripts in the Steam\steamapps\common\Sven Co-op\svencoop folder aren't working for some people. Make sure you have Opposing Force or Blue Shift fully installed and working on Steam before running the scripts. If they still don't work, let us know the details on the forums.
    • Do not change the Renderer to "Software" in Video settings. Leave it set to "OpenGL". If you change it accidentally, try closing and loading the game once or twice and you should see a popup allowing you to click OK to reset your video settings.

    Thank you. Thank you all, developers and players. Never expected to see so many players on release day. I am overwhelmed.

    Re: Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    8th. After installing the game, Sven Co-op's SDK and Dedicated Server will be available under Tools in your Steam Library (use the dropdown at the right of the Search box). For information on how to set up your own dedicated server, check the "Running a Server" section of the game manual. You will need to forward port 27015 (TCP/UDP) to run any server.

    With the massive influx of players following the release, some servers are having stability issues largely due to extremely high player counts. Huge 32-player servers can certainly be fun, but Sven Co-op is commonly best with smaller groups anyway. Consider creating more games with Max Players set to somewhere around 8-12 for dedicated servers and 6-10 for Listen servers. ("Listen" servers are games created with the 'Start Game' button from the main menu.) It also appears that Windows servers are currently quite a bit more stable than the Linux ones. We'll investigate this further.


    Known issues:

    • If, after Sven Co-op finishes loading (this can take a while the first time), your mouse isn't working properly (e.g. you can't easily click menu items) or the game window extends off the edge of the screen, try disabling any Windows display scaling settings. In Windows 10, go to Settings > System > Display and set "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" to 100%.

    • Do not change the Renderer to "Software" in Video settings. Leave it set to "OpenGL". If you change it accidentally, try closing and loading the game once or twice and you should see a popup allowing you to click OK to reset your video settings.

    Re: Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    This is excellent! I've downloaded this already.

    There's one problem though, no servers are appearing. Give that Google tells me there is at least one 5.0 server actually running (88.97.144.81:27015, which I can't join because it's apparently "not responding"), can anyone tell me what might be going wrong?

    Re: Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    3,993 active players right now according to steam stats. When I went to bed it was 3500, so it's probably rising as europeans are waking up. At some point in the next few days it will probably reach a peak and then become stable around a lower number

    Even when Sven Co-op was at its highest popularity, it never even came close to this amount of players...

    Ps. Make a new map Hezus

    Congratulations on the release Sven Co-op team!

    It was so nice to see so much servers with that much active players shortly after release. To be honest I didn't expect so many people in such a short time. Life is flowing through the veins of the game again it seems, nice work! ^^

    Re: Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    Gratz to the team for making this release happen! I feel kinda bad for not having helped with this one, but it seems I'll stick around here forever anyway, so we'll see what's to come.

    Re: Sven Co-op 5.0 Released!

    Congratulations on releasing before Half-Life 3! hopped on a sever last night and had a blast, now I need to see if I can get some of my buddies and set up a sever.

    Also the new models, especially the HGrunts, are absolutely sexy! and I was supersized to see my crappy Romka's hassassin edit being used, If you guys want I have a better version of it I made that looks nicer and has a textured head set.

    My old account is linked to a dead email account so I had to make a new one.

    It has not been completed yet. Our main focus now is fixing various bugs in 5.0 that popped up.

    It's insane that SvenCoop is alive and well, I will force my old friends to downtank this from the InterSteams so we can have some fun yet again! SvenCoop was what we did late at night when I was sick of the competitiveness of Counter-Strike and what-not else Co-op for life! Very much GZ on the new release!

    Congratulations on the Steam Release. So far so good, the survival mode is great, I look forword to the next updates.
    Sven Co-op has been my favourite mod since I can remember, glad to see it's alive and well.
