Persistence between maps

A Forum Thread for Sven Coop

How to patch that hole in your pocket.

Don't know if this has been asked before, don't know what keywords to search for exactly.

Is there a server cvar or something like that that enables player consistency across maps? I've poked around the console and found one labelled mp_consistency that is 1 by default but that seems to have nothing to do with it.
Particularly for listen/LAN servers. For example, the half life campaign. You have a pistol, and 35 extra bullets. Next map you'll have a pistol and 0 extra bullets, because it treats it as if you just joined.

Kinda frustrating on consecutive maps like They Hunger, Half Life, and other sequential maps.

    I remember seeing that question a few days ago on a Sven Coop's forum somewhere else... Apparently, it's not possible, according to the answers given there...
