17 comments by JPolito on Mar 22nd, 2015

Greetings Svencoopers and other Interested-In-Sven-People!

Today we would like to announce that we have reached a new stage in the development of version 5.0. A short time ago we ceased adding new features to the game and are instead focusing on sorting out a handful of issues that are preventing the game from being as good as we want it to be. Henceforth, we'll be putting the last bit of polish on the game. Nih tried to write this as a run-on sentence but I would not let him.

We would also like to take this opportunity to reveal a bit more about what’s in store for version 5.0 (The first version of Sven Co-op on Steam, available at no cost!):

One of the things we have been hard at work on is a complete rework of the Half-Life 1 co-op conversion. The new conversion will be much closer to the original Half-Life experience, with fewer Sven Co-op specific additions that ruined the original atmosphere of Half-Life. Many of the levels have also been merged, which allows for far less frequent map loading sequences, and player health and loadouts will be carried over between levels. The Half-Life co-op campaign has also been chosen to showcase a new major addition to the game: Survival Mode. When Survival mode is active, players who die will be respawned as 'observers', who observe the game in progress and will only be able to return once the living players have reached a checkpoint or until someone revives them. The result is an experience much more similar to Half-Life Singleplayer, where players can lose the level and must reload to try again. A video demonstrating Survival Mode and the checkpoint system can be see below.

Survival Mode has been scripted using AngelScript and the new 'Observer Mode' feature, and can be added easily to any level by loading the HLSP map script and adding the necessary checkpoint entities to the level. Alongside HLSP, several other official levels in the game have also been chosen to showcase Survival mode. Server operators are able to disable or enable the feature at will using a CVAR, allowing players to continue playing HLSP and other Survival Mode maps with the classic 'infinite respawn' mode typical of levels in our previous game versions.

We are seriously looking forward to seeing what kinds of creative game modes level designers will come up with using AngelScript and the long-awaited Observer Mode feature. And we'll try to keep you all updated as much as we can while we work ceaselessly to finally push this version out onto your doorsteps.

Nevermind my last comment, I fixed the problem (Forgot to turn off steam during installation.) Though any information on how close you are to releasing SC 3.5? Im really looking forward to seeing Tor in it. => But damn, This game is the best I've played period. Goodluck on the future mods you make.

This mod is one of my favorites, I've played this on LAN and internet. The gameplay is out of this world! Though I have one question, I installed the patch though the Half-Life maps don't show up on the Create server map menu. I installed everything correctly, right into the SvenCoop subdirectory. Though tell me if I didn't do something right.
