General Info :

How to install :
- Download Black Snow Coop v1.0.0
- Extract or Move the blacksnowcoop folder into your Sourcemods folder
- Download Black Snow Coop v1.2.0 and do the above step again, make sure you overwrite all existing/previous files from v1.0.0! Or v1.1.0 if that's your current version.
- Games needed : SDK Base 2007 and Half-Life 2: Episode 2.
- Finito, have fun ! ;D

Servers :

List ;
- Official Server 24/7 IP
- Dedicated Server 1 + MANY more will be raised!

Controls :
Similar to the Single Player, but some new ones has been added
- Button C opens Character Menu
- Button X opens Radio Command Menu
- Mouse Wheel Forward sets your view to Firstperson
- Mouse Wheel Backwards sets your view to Thirdperson
- Button Q checks objectives / inventory

- Mouse Button 1 Turns Flashlight On
- Mouse Button 2 Turns Flashlight Off

Old Bugs :
- No particle flash on the maglite ;'( I've got it all to work but it can't be deleted and it creates a new particle that adds to the existing one every time you turn off and on the maglite.
- Radio commands don't work but the menu appears, yet no output no matter what button you press.

Bugs in v1.2.0 :
- If everyone dies it will crash the server/game
- You may fall out of the helicopter in the first map but you will be teleported back or if you don't then click C and choose a new class and get re-teleported
- In the second chapter it may crash due to projectedtexture(s)
- Maps without a tasklist will crash (no big deal since there is no other maps tho)
- Some very bright props/surfaces due to buildcubemaps crashes the map so the proper lightmaps didn't get built.
- You may get stuck in the big open field/tunnel in chapter 2 if everyone teleports at once (open console and write kill to get unstuck or click "C" and tele back to spawn by choosing a new class)
- When you transit or re-join a game the Character menu won't show at once, but a little after. Unless you already clicked "C" and choosed a class
- Performance issues may occur, especially on servers. To fix this add "-heapsize 1024000" to the properties on the game in steam or on the SRCDS shortcut as explained in my tutorial!
- Dynamic spawn doesn't work, it sends you to the spawn point entities... :(

Notice :
If you aren't sure which version you have, go to main menu of the mod and look down to the right and it will say "Version 1.X.X".

Credits :
All credits goes to the original creators,
and to Pretador for coding up this to work for coop, fixing the maps and changing it all around, adding new panels, textures, logos, etc... =D

Conclusion :
Have fun and I hope you will enjoy Black Snow Coop just as much or even more than you enjoyed the original Single Player version now as you can shit yourself together with others. Amusing isn't it? :3

Not to mention v1.2.0 is so far the best release! Obviously since now everything works so much better. Four players roaming through Amaluuk Station trying to rescue John Matsuda. Fear you will experience, and shit and stink in your seat as well! ;P

I'm getting some texture errors for the game, even though I started with v 1.0 and updated it to 1.2, and I have HL2, HL2:EP2, and Source SDK Base 2007. Do you know any other reason that I might be getting some errors?

Recent SDK updates really broke the mod, if your ep2 content is on steam pipe...
If you change the gameinfo to:

I am also getting some texture errors, even with the gameinfo changed. I tried reinstalling and now I am receving the error "HL2 has stopped working". This mod looks so awesome and I wanna play it with my friends. But it's just not possible if noone knows a workaround or have a fix for this sucks. :(

Cleaning the registry with CCleaner and reinstalling HL2 + episode 2 and blacksnowcoop solved the crashing problem atleast.

The HL2.exe crash problem came back. Some map loaded ok, but most ones crashed. The client.dll refused to communicate/work with my current nvidia drivers. Very strange. So the only way to solve this was to uninstall my graphic card drivers and reinstall new ones. The game looks good now, but still some of the models does not show up + some textures. It is playable atleast now.

Another comment from me. xD But this time I solved it and all textures/models are showing up! Well with the help of this guy. But I also had this idea, just did not know where the models in HL2 EP2 were located. =)

I actually managed to start up the mod by doing the following:
-Download the mod file, and extract it to the sourcemods folder (be sure to save the file)
-Goto steamapps/common/Half-Life 2/ep2 and open ep2_pak_dir.vpk (Download GCFScape if you dont have it)
-Extract the materials, models, particles, scripts and sound folder into the 1187 folder (overwritten all files it asked for)

-Extract 1187 to the sourcemods folder again (overwrite all files, again)"

This was for the 1187 mod but this works for black snow as well. I just did not do the last part where I have marked with ******.

That error should be caused by lacking memory, try removing some processes from your tasklist (CTRL+ALT+DELETE). Such as Skype, Xfire, etc...

This mod is created by the genius creators of "Battle-Force" and "The Forgotten Ones". These are also the same mods that use up tons of space for no specific reason, such as unused models and textures.

If you want to play BLACK SNOW, don't play it like this. The playermodels are all ripped off of various websites/games, and the game isn't even good with more than 1 person. Experience the original mod, not this.
