Synergy is a Half-Life 2 co-opertive multiplayer modification.

We have evolved from multiple mods (DC Co-op 2, Dev Co-op and Tim-Coop). This modification strives to give Half-Life players a true Half-Life 2 cooperative experience.

The mod features our own levels and the ability to play the Half-Life 2, Episode One and Episode Two campaigns cooperatively.

In addition, you can add more content by installing third-party mods, such as ROCK 24 and MINERVA: Metastasis, then playing them in Synergy!

Hello everyone, it's been a while!I have some good news! We have some new development team members to introduce you to. Please officially welcome Travis (Krazy Kasrkin), Edfake and Patrick! They will be working on the various things with Synergy, including the code and maps.
What this means for you is: more updates and more development.We have a changelog ready for you all, which you can see here: Change Log - 44.We do have 2 screenshots to show you as well. We've added another vehicle type, which Fury_161 has created based on the original Buggy. Edfake has updated the scoreboard, with more changes planned. We're looking at figuring out a scoring system as well. Anyway, take a look below:

Also, we've finally returned some of the favourite Synergy content from before the 'OrangeBox' version! Please welcome back kilgore's maps, the Gargantua, the Combine Pulse Rifle and the MP5K weapons!
The following maps have been put back where they belong: syn_Apprehension, syn_DeadSimple, syn_FogIsland and syn_Forgotten_EvilsWe have some interesting things planned for next year, so stay tuned!
Happy Holidays from the entire Synergy Team!

Hey, dev guys. Will we see some major updates in future? Or you already stopped working on mod?

Working on moving to a newer version of the SDK to fix many recent issues, as well as expand our development. This mod is still very much active. More news to come soon.

How would you define "soon"? ;) I mean it's been a year since that comment.

hl2, episodes and some other mods like Minerva, Riot Act and Dangerous World... Black Mesa has been included into GameList, but it's not playable. :(

These issues will be fixed in our next version! Valve is shifting many of the games/mods over to the new file format.

I remember having asked Ruca about why the SL8 got removed, he said it was because the models was bad.

Synergy was once the best Coop mod out there. Before it went to steamworks.

Before it went to steamworks it had awesome maps, badass new guns, custom player models, lots of other things, but then they went to steamworks and it unfortunately got bad. They ripped everything off it and left the custom player models just to donators.

The only thing I still like in this game is the "Trials" pack of maps. Only good thing left in it.
