What engine version?
So my friend just bought half-life 2, any I want to play with him. I have recently watched a lot of speed runs an thought, hey why not try it myself. My friend also seemed interested but when I tested Synergy while he was downloading it, I couldn't ABH (accelerated back hopping) which you can in half-life 2 (+ episodes + portal) because they are running the orange box engine, so I was wondering, which engine is Synergy running? And is there some way to make ABH possible again?

Synergy is running the Half Life 2 Deathmatch version of the Source engine.

And I think ABH and normal bunny hopping is able to be ressurected using console commands, namely one that I can remember being sv_airaccellerate, but I think that cvar is broken in Synergy and the devs don't want to fix it.

Synergy is using the latest Source 2013 version out by Valve. Even though the build is 0, you can tell it's on the latest because "status" outputs the new SteamID formats.

Thank you two! if anyone is sure of a way to make ABH avalible again then it would be appreaciated if you post it here :P

They've re-enabled sv_airaccellerate in the "beta_public" branch.

If you dont have or want the beta sv_air.. can be used/set if you use sourcemod (for servers) using sv_cvar

If your not in the beta and have SourceMod installed you can use "sm_cvar sv_airaccelerate #" to set the value. The cvar still exists it's just blocked from use without plugins.

I've tried changing the sv_airaccelerate value in the command console. Hasn't enabled ABH or ASH like in HL2. Values of 100, 300, 1000, 9999 didn't create the exploit. Is there a real value that will make this play like Half Life 2, or is there a different command/mod that needs to be used?
My friends and I would love fooling around like we do in singleplayer HL2. Any suggestions will be awesome.

sv_airaccelerate is how sharp you can strafe, i dont think they know what they're talking about, that or i didnt understand them clearly.

Tried a lot of things, didnt get anything to work :c
Don't remember what i tried, but it was a long time ago so you might have more luck now than i did c:
I found out the engine version at some point but i dont remember it, it's probably been updated since anyway.
Rereading comments its prolly HL2: DM engine but didnt get it to work with the commands

Probably that it's not possible to get abh back

abh was a fixed glitch, this is how it worked and why no amount of cvars will get it back...

abh worked because the system (engine) applied backward thrust if you move forward too fast, keeping you at the max forward speed allowed. If you moved forward fast, jump and turn around in mid-air the slowdown force was applied to your movement direction which is now backward, so it speeds you up instead.
