Sven Co-op 5.0 has been released as a standalone game on Steam!

Posted by on









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.

HELLO! Sure there's new features, but is any excuse for the plethora of now broken maps let alone lack of custom maps from before? Not to mention the over-kill amount of lag every player receive in map they23 EVERYTIME. This is coming from a 4.0 player who donated I might add. Have to say I don't always agree with the changes in monster difficulty. But not making the whole half of the entire custom map database from previous versions available to play on most servers right now is kinda a fail.

To AdamBeam, it's so very broken, able to crash servers and run around with a name that makes everyone disconnect with error.

PS: Wish I found that one in the release_candidate. :p

Any chance of a Linux client (Not Server) in the future?
Half-Life and Half-Life Source both run GREAT in Linux
Thanks for all of the teams hard work!

Nope, they won't release Sven Co-op on Linux (at least they don't plan to).

Hi, I have a problem
When I open Sven Coop 5.0.1 it's showing me a error:

"Video mode change failure: The game has detected that the previous attempt to start in openGL video mode failed. The game will now run in software mode".

When I press ok it will appear a window with a white screen and if I click the window it will freeze.

If I press cancel button on that error, it will not open the game.

I used those methods:

"Verify integrity of game cache".
Reinstalled sven coop, deleted sven coop and steam, video card drivers, reinstalled both windows 8.1 and windows 7.. same thing :(

My laptop specifications:
CPU: Intel T2130 1.86GHz
My GPU: ATI x200m 128mb..
Ram: 2gb ddr2
