Post news RSS Good News And Bad News About Sven Co-op 4.1

A Sven Co-op 4.1 status update and feature announcement, with screenshots and bad news(?)

Posted by on

The bad news is that it's taking longer than expected, and won't be ready until -- at the earliest -- Christmas, 2011 :(.

The good news is that so much is being added, we've decided to call it Sven Co-op 6.0!


Just kidding. We're actually in the process of putting together a release candidate at the moment, and looking to release before the end of August. (2010!). Here are some of the things you can expect:

  • No more sound-related (fmodex) crashes, and other major stability improvements
  • Full compatibility with non-English language settings
  • No more endless reconnect/retry loops when joining servers
  • All ambient sounds working correctly
  • Advanced new mapping features allowing for impressive gameplay customization
  • Two new weapons
  • Many new and improved maps
  • Beta Opposing Force storyline support
  • A secret monster ability
  • Literally hundreds of smaller additions, tweaks, and bugfixes

-- More to be announced, in more detail, over the next couple of weeks.

Speaking of which: If you were planning to donate, please make sure to get your donation (and Steam ID) in before the 14th of August to ensure that you receive your bonus features in version 4.1. If you already donated but never received a reply saying your ID had been added, please send me a message with your Steam ID (not username) plus the name and e-mail address used when donating. Donors and server admins now get special scoreboard icons, by the way. :)

In the meantime -- SMB Crossover, Harmony Harmony, NS2 Alpha if you pre-ordered, and of course Alien Swarm.


Update: In other news, Silencer released version 3.9 of SHLT with bugfixes from vluzacn. Most major change is a fix that stops holes and invisible walls from appearing in solid geometry which remained from ZHLT 3.4. Check it out here!

I dont know if this is still a one man opertation, or if theres more ppl involved making sven co-op...but I absolutely LOVE IT!! Glad to see those new additions implemented...looks like its becoming almost ints own game!

Aaw...not this christmas but the next one? *sad face*
Maybe you can get some help with it from the community or have more ppl work on it? It would be great if it would come out in some form for this christmas...or just after new year's!

And the 6.0/delay was only a joke, if anyone missed that :).
