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!

We're looking at re-incorporating them once we find someone who's able to do it. There hasn't been an official announcement, but we're looking for level designers, modellers, animators and more to revive some of the older things, and make create new features. Right now it's a bit hard to get work done without the proper artists.

On the other hand, I'm currently working on a new map with several more textures coming up.
I'm hoping that someone will be able to put the custom textures to good use.

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.
