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.

I'm getting tired of many stupid people on this community, so I will just get down to this and write some stupid news so you cunts can quit whining. Or actually, I'll just put a damn FAQ instead.

I'm getting tired of many stupid people on this community, so I will just get down to this and write some stupid news so you cunts can quit whining. Or actually, I'll just put a damn FAQ instead.

It's been a while since you last put any news/screenshots, why?
Because we're working with the damn mod, and because we don't want to put too much information up because we rather don't want to spoil too much.

The progressbar has been on 95% for a long time now, shouldn't you be done with the mod at this point?
NO, 5% may sound little in a progress bar, but in fact 5% of the total development time is very much. Right now the mod has taken 3,5 years to development, and multiplying that to 0,05, and the estimated time should be 2 months. We are currently very close to release, so stop whining and register on our forums to get news frequently.

You guys are lazy, you never release the mod, are you slacking?
Look, we all have jobs/university and such to take care of in the first place, and we hardly find any time to mod anymore. Like for me, I'm at work from 9am to 6pm, then I have to fix food and shit, so I'm not able to mod until 8pm, and then I have to go to bed at 11pm. Then on the weekends I'm spending my time with my family, girlfriend or friends, because I have a fucking life. So this means I only have 3 hours free to mod every day. But how fun is it to work your ass off every day (including work) and not be able to rest? Well you tell me.

You are very greedy and you force me to donate money so I can watch some media
That is so fucking incorrect. IF you donate, then we show you some extra stuff because of your kindness, mainly as a thanks to your donation. This means that we are NOT selling anything, we just share the donators some more of our work more personally. And if you want to look at screenshots and videos, you have those links:

Now I'm fucking pissed off at many people here, who are posting comments like this:

"By the way, how long as progess been at 95%? Is any work actually being done or is the dev team just sitting around and coming up with ideas to exploit their mild fame so they don't have to get real jobs?"

I mean, just fuck you. And because of shit comments like this, the mod will be delayed, I can tell you. And you know why? Because we loose our motivation to continue working with it.

I can feel where your coming from, but that seems a bit harsh maybe?
There had to be a more polite way to state this.

That aside, hang in there, and Modinformer will surely review Cry of Fear once it's out.

You'd be shocked at how many companies would be more than happy to tell their customers to screw off and be happy with what they get. Most just CAN'T because of the theoretical threat to their business. Here, in a non-commercial publication where there's no business to worry about at all? I'd be mildly envious they can tell ungrateful people how they feel.

A bit harsh? Dude they been working there ***** off on this mod and the "fans" havent been moviating them, just bitching about how the progress bar is at 95% and not showing any content while they should be doing is being patient and wait for the damn mod.

This is Moddb there are thousands of other mods they can play, besides they're acting just as bad as the morons on the black mesa page and that bad.

Goddamn trolls got the best mod of alltime delayed! I advice to ignore the trolls and just take youre time as long as it needs to make the mod perfect, we all know its going to be worth the wait since the quality of this mod is just l33t and devs are awesome. Peace out and as always, keep up the great work!

Xylemon Jul 1 2011 says:

Seems a bit harsh for those of us that haven't done anything, I've been waiting patiently for your mod not making any type of rude comment, and giving my best advice when something seems off. When I do see any type of comment that's a bit rude or seems a bit on the 'troll' side, I just simply ignore it or try to be nice with my reply. I can understand how you feel. I mean you've put years and hard work into your mod, but don't punish the ones who haven't done anything wrong.

He's saying that since the trolls keep posting negative comments, they lose morale and motivation. The devs aren't specifically punishing the community because of those comments.

We as mod developers don't get paid for our work. In fact we have to pay in order to get this stuff out (SVN repositories, websites, etc etc). We do it because we love it. When stupid kids with entitlement issues come screaming to us about how we ****** everything up or are taking too long it really makes you say "Wow **** this I'm going to do something else."

Out of 10 comments, 9 are usually praise and admiration for the the mod, while 1 is the typical "de progres bars has been stucked on 95 percent for a longcat time naow, u guys sucks!".

Why focus so much on what the trolls and whiners say? Almost everything I read about CoF is good, focus on this instead! Theres no reason to punish all your fans just because of some stupid minority!

I kinda understand that feeling by working 8 hours per day. I've been working in a computer workshop for awhile now and seriusly theres not alot of time for anything.
But I dont mod or do any kind of hardwork after working so it must be painfull :\

BUT 1 thing these 12 year old kid trolls need to learn is to wait, its better to wait for a long and well done mod then a rushed 1.

But agreeing with some comments above its not really fair delaying the mod for those who kindly been patient.

People need to realize that these projects are great undertakings for the sake of the fans. You don't build up a fan base only to poop on it. The work that has been put in to this mod is basically free entertainment for everyone that owns Half-Life, so stop bitching, have a cookie and shut up.

goirdin Jul 1 2011 says:

Hah, I love how this was so harsh on them. I don't know if any of those people posting comments have actually tried making a mod (let alone, one that's this good) but it takes a looong time and a lot of commitment. And when people are constantly asking "why are you slacking" or "it's never coming out" I can see why somebody would get ******. Just leave him alone while he works guys, like the saying goes, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't upset these mod developers or I'll kill you myself."

"so you ***** can quit whining.", Its funny that you never said that this message is to those whiners and trolls, who just sit in front of their comps eat like fatasses and tend to **** all over hard working people, who are getting something done for them. I am a composer myuself and now that if you dont feel that its done it needs polishing. BUT you did get this to hear like its a message to everyone? why is that? I know the feeling that you just get **** all over for working hard as ****. But dont express it to everybody, they even might get a little bit offended by it.

Some young gamer's just treat mod teams has if they were professional teams being payed to make this or that game. In their eyes the quality of some mods are so professional that the line between mod teams and professional teams is blurred, they just can't see the difference, to top that the majority never ever did any modding in their life, so they don't realize how hard it is to make a TC or a big mod in our spare time.

I agree with Rumpel. Like I said on the CoF facebook page, harassing the good artists isn't going to make anything happen faster, except for a prospective burnout. I have no modding experience, but on other topics I know very well that hurrying up creative work is very likely to mess things up.

Good luck with the mod and take your time!

Sadly some people are just idiots but as far as I'm, and I hope and imagine the majority of the modding community and people tracking Cry of Fear are concerned, take as long as you want and need to make what will most likely be one of the best if not the best single player half life mods ever created and a beacon of what can be achieved in this day and age when modding an older engine.

You just said the first sentence, and stated completely opposite thing after that... Money IS made from donations, but I think they deserve it...

But anyways, can you people stop this crap? I'll I'm seeing is 2 sides swearing at each other and arguing, this will go nowhere... It's just another pointless drama.
