    So today I was playing Sven Coop, it has been several years since I last played it (early 08) and I completely forgot about the 4.0 update. So I got 4.6, launched a game on Opposing Force and what do I see? The new weapons are f**ked up,the majority of the players were shooting the Gene Worm just for XP and leveling (the server I was playing on had that XP mod) and I said, "Why aren't you activating the valve and the gearbox?" and they responded like "We're doing it for the XP, not the campaign." I know this is a useless thread so rate me dumb all you want but what happened to all the good players and things about Sven Coop? It's like the SC team took the best part of Sven and made it horrible on purpose.

    EDIT: I did use the Low-Def model pack for Sven-Coop 4.6, but the players are the main issue here.

    I think the problem is that you are playing on a server with an xp mod, not Sven Coop itself

    I'm more annoyed by the tacticool guns, sounds, etc. from the newest version.

    As a former dire sven lover, I don't like how they pretty much killed the "half-life" part of their mod after 3.0

    You may tell me to use low-def model packs and such, but it's not just that. The new AI is incredibly unstable, random and unfun. Even the weapon behavior themselves were made terrible (mp5 grenades, random bullet spread, unfitting new particles)



    more like wannabe-cod with aliens.

    This has been going on since the dawn of xp mods, but sadly the only populated server is like Snark cafe which is packed with mic spamming idiots, xp farmers and- well that's it actually.

    The thing is, almost EVERY Sven-Coop server has to have the XP mod.

    I don't usually play sven. I do understand why most of the community died. I think even 3.0 I felt was just run and gun and thats why I always liked it. I met a lot of my friends in sven and I usually only play with friends on sven since there are really no servers that aren't XP mod/have players.

    Side note: What happened to turrican and slidje? Do they still map? I always loved the fun maps.

    Edited:

    I hope cry of fear could be ported over. That would be so much fun with friends (I know theres coop in it already, I want to play the sp campaign.)

    Personally, I kind of wish the Sven team would just lay GoldSrc to rest finally and move on to Source, or some other engine/mod.

    I'd like to see Sven Co-op 2 someday.

    Good old days of 3.0 and half-life goodness are gone.Stopped playing after 4 because the svencoop I loved and grew up playing was gone.I just can't get used to it because not only it's easy as fuck but I miss the old half-life feeling.

    I know, I remember seeing those way back when. I do kind of enjoy and appreciate having mods like Obsidian Conflict and Synergy, but it just doesn't feel the same to me. It feels like something is missing for me.

    Tried restarting Steam, or deleting ClientRegistry.blob and all that shit.

       Synergy is quite disappointing anyway

    I'd pick OC over Synergy anyday for a more sven-coop like experience. If you just want Half-Life 2 co-op, though, Synergy is the way to go.

    The problem with many co-op mods is that everybody tries to rush to the finish. The only thing I loved about Synergy was the vans and the custom weapons, too bad they won't bring the fists back for "copyright reasons" when many mods like SMOD use them to this day.

    Synergy was way better before they partnered with Steamworks.

    I just want to play half-life in co-op, not dick around with tactic00l spas 12s with burst fire and assault rifles with burst fire and reloadable grenades and bullshit.

    Also having the AI run and shoot at the same time significantly alters the flow of gameplay.

    Alien Grunts were so fucking annoying because of that, combined with meleeing you too.

    Entmod does work, but requires a LOT more configuration to get it working correctly. Also, Sven-Coop sucks now mainly because of the lack of players and shitty servers. I would play OC, but it's not updated often enough a lost a lot of players.

    Oh god I remember that too. Sven Coop 3.0 was the ultimate "chill out" mod where you could fuck around, listen to HLSS music, and play weird levels that involved you doing things like going through obstacle cources where the goal was to survive as long as possible, turn yourself into a human basketball, play classic arcade games like Donkey Kong in first person, dick around in a Resident evil-themed level, and run for dear life after activating a self-destruct sequence in a highrise building.

    Did 4.0 get rid of that feeling in favor of tacticlol shit? :(

    I've done this in 4.0 and above for a while, as long as the community is still active this will still keep happening.

    This thread made me nostalgia hard, havn't played it in a while. But ive seen some vids of 4.0 and yeah the feeling of half life isn't there. Those were some gooood times, back in the days of Team Fortress Classic, Sven Coop, speculating about Half-life 2. Daily nostalgia dose complete.

    I've been playing Sven Co-op since before the Source engine existed, when there were more servers, more players, more fun, and it was more alive. I'm a regular on the Snark Cafe servers, I mic spam, yeah, but it's mostly music, but it doesn't change anything for me, I still have fun, but I still miss the old days when I was an ent mod admin on some server, those were good days.
