Post news Report RSS Sven Co-op: Land of Legends Gameplay Video!

Hezus has posted a gameplay video for DevEd's upcoming Land of Legends fantasy submod! There's also news of an urgent Steam issue, plus SC4.0 progress.

Posted by on

A big update from us today with some good news! As we all know, Sven Co-op's release date has been set back numerous times because of various reasons. Team members came and went and others had to face facts that Sven Co-op development couldn't keep up with their busy lives. Especially in the coding field we had problems to move forward. The good news is that we've found some additional coders who're going to help us out! They'll be working together with the current team members to fix bugs and finish up SC4.0 for a release. More details soon.

While we're at the technical side: a recent Steam update (released 22 Oct) has unfortunately been causing problems for HL1-engine dedicated servers. This includes Sven Co-op, Counter-Strike, TFC and Natural Selection servers among others. We were expecting this to be fixed in a subsequent update, but have not heard anything so far.

Luckily a temporary work-around for the main issue -- servers not showing up in the server browser -- has been found: Those running servers would be wise to check this thread. If you're experiencing other problems such as servers refusing to update (which causes the protocol 47 error for clients), constant crashing, etc., try checking the Steam Forums for possible solutions (particularly the HL DS forums).

Edit by Sven: Some people are reporting that this bug can affect all servers, not just dedicated (so even just when you click Start Game from the Sven Co-op menu). To attempt to fix this, right-click this link, click Save As, and copy the resulting steam_appid.txt file to your Steam\Steamapps\user@name.com\Half-Life\SvenCoop\ folder.

So far, so good. But of course we want to show you something too. Because Sven Co-op is highly customizable, we've had some impressive maps in the past. Think of ToonRun and Resident Evil for instance. Currently, a big project is being developed by DevEd called Land of Legends, of which I am a part myself. The project is so highly customized, that we decided to release it as a sub-mod. Even though the Sven Co-op heart beats within, the game will play differently. It's release date is currently unknown, but most of the work has been finished. We've put together a video to show what it looks like in-game.


In other news: DinamoXP, the winner of our Logo Contest, has put together a rather impressive fan-site for Sven Co-op: svencoop4.com! You can visit it right here. Until the next update!

Don't forget to make a new profile for it if you release it separately!

Big fan of Sven Coop, but this vid had horrible music, and crappy models. Better off playing Master Sword Continued if you want a Half Life RPG mod. I wish the Sven team would work on the actual game and release this after they finish.

Pay them and I'm sure they'd be more than happy to. Until then, let the devs do what the devs want to do. :)

Note that as mentioned, the Land of Legends submod is being developed by DevEd ( Goannasvencoop.com ), not the Sven Co-op team, and so is in no way contributing to the 4.0 delay.

Never mind the player haters Hezus! I like it so far.. Shame on you m82sniper for telling Hezus Master Swords better... This is to show off how flexible the new SvenCoop 4.0 will be not to just show off how ridiculous sounds are... Gosh!

I think you guys are doing a great job on this project!

So what he is saying is he can add stuff where it will keep scores like for a MMORPG style play on certain maps... Master Sword Continued is Dedicated to the MMORPG style of game play where the next version of SvenCoop 4.0 can be for any type game play depending on the mappers ability to code that information into the maps or scripts for the maps... Which I am assuming they are going to be using some sort of API to achieve that...

Very nice. I have a question, will we be able to release new maps, quests, and new content for this sub-mod? What if I want to make my own little quests, forests, maps, and the like with their own goals and monsters?

Gosh, I used to play Sven Co-op so much, and I'm sure I will again once 4.0 comes out, it looks real awesome!
Also, what song is that in the video? It's rather neat.
