Persistence between maps

A Forum Thread for Sven Co-op

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...
