Sven Co-op? Want to ensure that it keeps going, and give the people who make it happen something for their
trouble? Well, why not use our donation system.
idea is that we continue our toil to supply the game at no cost, and you
have the ability to give a couple of dollars or so to the Sven Co-op team
if you like what you get. This will primarily be used to pay for the web
site's hosting fees, domain name, development servers, etc. Anything left over will partly be
used as rewards for team members, giving us a lot more reason to make the
game better, faster... and partly on things that directly benefit the game and
community (our vBulletin forums,
for example, exist due to support from the community).
To reward donors for supporting the game, we've created a few bonuses
for them. If you donate $4 you'll get the Electrified Crowbar, and if
you donate $6 or more you'll get both the Electric Crowbar and the Gilded
Uzi/s. There's even a not-so-secret bonus feature in Sven Co-op v4.0 and above! None of these are available to non-donators, except in offline games. (Note: All amounts are in US dollars) (Note 2: The weapon models shown below are outdated and look much better now).
With the Electrified Crowbar, the player character figures out a way of connecting the crowbar to the
HEV suit's battery power (alt-fire toggles the connection), causing arcs of electricity to pulse around its surface. The crowbar then does
double damage, but takes a bit of battery power per hit. Sparks fly when the crowbar hits a wall, and all-new sounds are used. It even works
with custom models (e.g. swords).
The Gilded Uzi/s are slightly more powerful than normal and replace the normal Uzis.
However, there's an option to switch to the normal, black skin, if you'd like a change (without losing the extra
How this works: Once you send your donation, you will be given
instructions on checking your unique
Steam ID (not
your CD key. Steam IDs are used for identification purposes on servers). Send this back, and we'll hardcode your ID into Sven Co-op itself.
Then you'll automatically get the bonus features in the next released version of the game, and all future versions.
The game can actually connect to an online server to retrieve the latest donator list, so you will most likely get the features before the next game release.
The normal players will
see you running about with blue lightning zapping about your crowbar, and turn green with envy (their player models actually turn green - we
coded it in! ---- just kidding) ;)
How to donate: If you have
a credit card or PayPal account, you
go to PayPal's page, fill in your information and the amount to donate, and PayPal arranges things straight away. It's
secure and encrypted, and only PayPal (a company owned by eBay) ever gets hold of your credit card information.
If you'd prefer to donate via post, contact me
telling me what country you're in, and I'll give you the address to send your donation to. Last time we checked, postage cost 80c from the US, and should be similar from most
other countries. This method is cash only... unfortunately, no cheques or postal orders can be accepted :/.
To donate, use one of the links below, or E-mail me and ask about sending a cash donation. Many thanks to
everyone who supports the game!! We seriously would never have come this far
Kids, if you borrowed your parents' credit cards
without asking: Naughty naughty! But Sven forgives you.
(This is a joke. Kids,
ask your parents first!!)
