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!

Here is the link: Sites.google.com

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!

Please help me solve this problem real quick because I am sitting on my *** 5 hours trying how to set up this brain twister. I posted it here because noone responded and i can't register to the sven coop forums. Every goddamn map just crash with the error message "ED_ALLOC: No free edicts". I can't even play it! And no, the -num_edicts 4096 command doesn't work! I tried even higher, but to no awail! I looked everywhere on the internet but there's no solution for this! I just give up... but I want to play this mod so much!! Please respond quick!

This worked for me (Non-steam, cracked, 62MB): Download Half-Life from here http://www.pyro-zone.com/downloads/ (it doesn't include singleplayer), install it and then install sven co-op to the half-life folder. After that, right-click on hl.exe and create a shortcut. After "...\Half-Life\hl.exe" in the target box, type: -nomaster -game svencoop -num_edicts 3072 Now run the shortcut and it should work fine :)

Same here, also 3,5-5h already. The afrikakorps, hldemo maps work, but the one that's supposed to launch the full original "campaign" crashes with ED_ALLOC, as if the commandline parameter -num_edicts doesn't work at all.

We can only wait for the Standalone. Nothing can fix the non-steam crashes.

Cracked Steam might work. But I don't bother.

Once you finish 5.0 will you be planning to port Sven Co-op to Black Mesa Multiplayer?

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?
