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!
