You wake up in a dark alley, not knowing anything. What has happened anyway? You struggle after the truth and answers. Answers you want to know in the darkness and fear, which makes your heartbeat race like violent blows against your head. Where do "they" come from? What has happened? Are you just turning insane? The time is up; you can't stay there reading your smses forever. It's time to head out and find the answers. Cry of Fear is a singleplayer modification of Half-Life 1 which brings you the horror you've always been afraid of. It's a total conversion of Half-Life 1, which means it uses NO Half-Life 1 content or other peoples' files. It's all made exclusively by the developers. It also uses new gaming styles that you will rarely find in Half-Life mods, such as advanced cutscenes and other stuff that will be revealed at a later date.

We've got a lot nice feedback from all of you, and most of it is so awesome! We are really glad that most of you enjoyed our mod! Even though there are a few people giving the mod unserious reviews like rating it 1, but oh well, that's what haters and trolls are for, isn't it?


On the other hand, we've been interviewed by Podcast 17. So if you want to hear an awesome interview and chit chat about Cry of Fear, please head over to this link!

Instructions for installing Cry of Fear v1.0

2. Download Cry of Fear here:

3. When you have installed it, launch the mod through the shortcut that automatically gets generated on your desktop.

  • Fixed num_edicts crash in the sewers
  • Fixed save/load bug
  • Fixed coop "server is full" when empty error
  • Potentially fixed crash when shooting hammer monsters stuck to the wall by the tentacles

  • Fixed picking up a new syringe while using your last one removing them both
  • Fixed dual wielding while in ironsights leaving you in ironsights
  • Fixed large icon in Steam
  • Slightly reduced monster attack distance
  • Fixed sprinting when underwater to make you move faster
  • Fixed being able to fall off the roof when given the yes/no prompt on the roofboss
  • Fixed level changes playing CD music if you have an audio CD in the drive.
  • Added missing voice chat key bind in options

Instructions for installing Patch v1.1

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\yourusername\half-life\CryOfFear\CoFLaunchApp.exe

2. Once your launch program is up, simply click "CHECK FOR UPDATES", and it will download it and install it for you automatically. Once the install is done, restart Steam.


That's all I have to say to you now. I hope you enjoy the mod!

Can you add a manual download for the patch? The launch app isnt working for me even though I have microsoft whatever 4.0. It has never worked on my computer, so.... it would be great if you could post a manual download.

No manual patches, ever, only makes it easier for the Non-Steam ijits to play.

Of course someone will probably post one eventually. Also, you can't get the launch App to work? That's very odd man...

The launch app seems to be a problem for alot of people. I don't see why it's required.

Mkilbride Feb 29 2012 replied:

The Launch App has special fixes in it to make the mod not crash and run better on certain levels.

Hence why, some people launch it directly from Steam, and it crashes, most developers tell them to run the launcher, as it contains special fixes.

You need steam, but if you put the CD key into steam, you get it free.

I was attempting to try that, but it's a complete re-download of the whole HL game into Steam. This goes the same to Opposing Force.

Does it include a fix for when instead of launching, the game just goes to Half-Life 1 rather than loading the mod?

Thanks guys, this mod is really just perfect. I like how it's just like afraid of monsters in its fear factor. The apartments are a lot like the hospital is AOM. Some people don't want to continue after you get to a certain part, I'm even a little freaked out, but I understand that the only thing scary to me is what I'm making up in my insane head. You really know how to use that element of the human thought process to your advantage. Thanks for the Patch, and goodnight!

ice, i assume that you are now talking about steam -04, which sucked balls so hard.

Steam -12 works fine.

I'm still crashing sometimes when shooting window monsters and zombies in the train. Makes it impossible to get trough that part. And even if it didn't crash, I would probably die because there are no syringes.

Otherwise, a great patch, but I hope you will do some fixes to that level.
