Greetings Svencoopers! We have been been silent on the news front for a while, but I can assure you that a lot has been going on behind the scenes. Releasing a game is a lot harder than you’d think, I swear! In fact, we had been hoping Santa Garg would be bringing a big present this Christmas - as he often does - but out of the blue his leg got broken, and well… Christmas had to be cancelled. Luckily, Santa Garg’s leg has now fully healed! Too bad he only delivers presents on Christmas. That’s just how it is, we hope you can understand. Thankfully, there are other occasions for gift-giving.

Today we’ll be talking about a couple of things. First off, there is a really important thing that we would like to mention here. It’s mostly of interest for level designers. A while back on our forums, banan2288 posted a new entity guide he had been working on. This entity guide covers all current entities in the game; information that could sometimes be hard to find before. But now we finally have a fully comprehensive guide, which should be very useful for all mappers. Thanks a lot banan2288!

Now, here’s some really cool news which we hope you will all like: Our trailer for Sven Co-op 5.0!

We hope you will enjoy this 2 minute introduction to our game, which also includes footage of some new maps and features. Also featured: Our new main menu theme by Pavel_Perepelitsa! The video itself was created by Mr. Mazur.

Since we still get a lot of questions about this: Remember, Sven Co-op 5.0 will be available for free on Steam, even if you don't own Half-Life 1. And this includes our Half-Life Singleplayer conversion.

That is all for now. Expect more media and information about 5.0 in the near future!

As a side note, the first version of Sven Co-op was released on January 19th, 1999… That means SC’s 17th birthday is in just 7 days! Wow! Who knew Sven Co-op was so old, huh? I don’t know about all of you guys, but here on the Sven Co-op team we will be celebrating that day!

Who cares about your computer size, Sven coop is just 1.2 GB! Steam has the same download speed torrents have. And don't even ask more questions about downloading games w/o steam, you pathietic pirater.

Can you guys explain why you made armor absorb more damage?
It totally messed up the damage balance, I'd rather see original HL damage proportions with health/armor.
I believe some older 4.X mod versions had it different than latest 4.X and 5.0, and I liked it a lot more.

Does that mean that SvenCoop will now get moved to the "games" section of Moddb rather than the "mods" section?

For some reason every time I change the view bobbing or any other setting in the advanced section of the settings, my settings or changes don't get saved. It is like it goes back to default. Any ideas?

Also, is there any chance that we can expect the Blue Shift part of the game to be any different? It feels inconsistent due to the fact that all the old weapon models and stuff are being used, while all the other maps have the newer content and enemies. What I'd like to have is this fixed, with the addition of more enemies and access to OpFor weapons in Blue Shift. At this moment Blue Shift feels half completed in a way.

Other than that, the game is great! I've been a fan for many years and I congratulate all of the devs for making this release!

Half-Life was one of a kind. Other than the extraordinary story, it had great gameplay and amazing graphics (for the late 1990's).
Now, you can play it with a friend.
Can you ask for more?
