Sven Co-op 4.8 released! Massive change log, and includes the Half-Life: Blue Shift co-op conversion.

Posted by on

Tell your siblings! Tell your friends! Tell your beloved llama! Sven Co-op 4.8 is complete!

In this release we've made the game more stable, fixed countless bugs, added several new features for mappers, and added a new co-op campaign!



Some of the more notable changes include:

  • Added Half-Life: Blue Shift co-op campaign support!
  • Added breakable functionality to all door types.
  • Added RIPENT for Linux with campaign installation scripts, along with uninstallation scripts.
  • Improved compatibility with the SteamPipe update for Half-Life:
    • Added missing VGUI language lines.
    • Campaign installation scripts will now search the common account folder for official BSP's.
    • File system updates include reading files from various mod extension folders (like addon, downloads, and hd).
    • Fixed borderless window mode vastly shrinking the game window.
    • Linux server binary renamed to hl.so.

and much more! Check out the Full Changelog, here!

(If you're able to provide permanent mirroring for the files, please e-mail the links to mirrors@svencoop.com. Thanks!)

While downloading, why not check out the Manual?
Server ops: When running a 4.8 dedicated server, you must add "-num_edicts 3072 -heapsize 131072" to your HLDS commandline or Launch Options.
The HL and OpFor campaigns can be installed under Linux using the .sh scripts in the /svencoop/ directory. To use Blue Shift on a Linux server, you must install it under Windows then copy the appropriate files across.

Remember, to play Sven Co-op you need to own the original Half-Life (NOT HL:Source). To play the Opposing Force and Blue Shift maps in SC, you need to own Opposing Force and Blue Shift.



Version 4.8 will most likely be the final SC mod release, but this is by no means the end of Sven Co-op. We have a major announcement to make soon, so keep an eye on SvenCoop.com over the next couple of weeks!

P.S. - If you missed out on donating for the bonus features in v4.8, you needen't worry, as our new automatic updating system allows us to provide donors with the bonuses at any time -- almost instantly.

What ever the project entails, I hope it won't be a source engine game. It's an outdated engine, and by the time you come out with that project, source 2 will be released.

Source 2 has indeedd been hinted at, but the Source 2013 SDK throws that into question.

Happy & Sad in the same moment, because 4.8 FINALLY came & Sven Coop 2 is now coming, but very sad also because Sven Coop 1 will now be thrown away from development ;C (Also cuz Sven Coop 2 won't be Standalone mod like BM:S or GE:S [Maybe])

My guess, SV2 would be an indie game made in Unity or UDK.

It wouldn't be able to have anything to do with the Half-Life world then. I don't think valve is crazy about half-life stuff in non half-life engines.

True, but who says it has to be Half Life? Sven Co-op is so different now with alot of things being changed, and even it's own characters, weapons and enemies. I can easily picture them doing their own thing.

If they wanted to go down that path, they could easy have a "Half life style" world that is technically different, but still very similar. Or maybe they could get picked up by Valve Counter Strike or Portal style.

That assumes the announcement has anything to do with Sven Co-op 2.
