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.

Nice stuff as always, I wanted to see more footage rather than chat but I guess you don't want to show too much... Would be nice to see some more of the subway though, without spoilers ofc! Voice acting section was cool anyhow (Sorry Rumpel I know how to make textures :P), was nice to see them both really getting into their roles.

James.. I think I saw you on here but the scene was so brief I can't quite tell if it was you or not... :P

Aina is very very pretty *nerdy blush*

Yeah the sound is out of sync. It happened when we uploaded the video to ModDB, so it's not our fault. Although, I've heard that the sound should fix itself after 10 minutes, which is obviosly untrue, as it has gone 1 hour and 14 min already. We will just wait and see if the ModDB staff can fix it.

It's cool. :)

Maybe it depends on how long the video is?

The longer video, the longer time it takes for the sync to be fixed. I don't know. Next time we will put a download link as well, so people can download it if the sound gets unsynced.

Oh, so THAT'S what DragonNOR looks like. :p

Btw, the out of sync-ness makes it look like DragonNOR has Aina's voice, and vice-versa.

Come on guys, show us more content next time - some levels in editor, maybe step by step creation of single part of the map or model. That's what people always interested to watch. However, very nice video! Looking forward for the new episodes. ;)

p.s. I had problems with audio delay too. :(

ruMpel Mar 11 2010, 4:35pm replied:

The audio is fixed now!

And about the content; I was not sure about what to show, as I already showed how I made my maps in the last videocast, so I thought showing textures and how I make them from the ground could be interesting. I also don't want to spoil much, that's the main reason of why we're not showing much.

And about James part, he had made a nice video about coding, but as his PC kinda died, we could not use his video, so he made something quick with his laptop, where he had nothing to show from CoF.

But we don't want to show more content, we've shown loads already.

Edit: And the reason being, everyone will just complain when the mod is released that they've seen it already.

Yay for new Videocast! >)

It was really cool, I dont need new content that much (spoilers are eviiiiiil), so Im quiet satisfied >)

Im a VA here and there myself, and that part of Stig and Aina was very interesting, the voices are perfect, and the call was really good. Looking forward to the work of these people alot!

Then to ruMpels part, really cool too. Checking out abandomned places for textures is really something. I might not say *great textures* myself alot, but I still look at the walls and details and say *thats cool and realistic looking*. And wow, so many photos and everything, my respect Sir >)

And minuit, nice kind of epic final, not much to show, but nice speech >)

Gonna sign up right now >>>>>>

Conclusion: Very cool videocast, good job team >)

Great video! Very informative. Nice to meet the team! Funny some times. Especially the part where Draggonor realised he was talking Norwegian. My favourite author was Norwegian! I'm half Austrian myself, and several times we see Andrea Reiu preform in Norway (my mom likes to watch it around christmas time).

Now, to talk about the video CONTENT. It was very informative, as I said. But how much did, H4, right? How much did it cost? Looks expensive. How could you afford it? Especially for a free mod.

I like how all the voice actors, and Rumpel from the same country (are they in the same town, too?). It's much easier to work with.

The part with the call looked pretty cool. But it's not that realistic with the subtitles and all. Maybe if you had SOMETHING like the HEV suit.

I'm surprised how you get the textures, Rumpel. Probably because in my mod, HypernovA, i'd never find any textures that way - everything's supposed to be high-tech in mine. So, CG for my mod (made by me). But are you allowed in the hospital? And how far do you live from it?

On your computer, Rumpel, I think you should put everything in one folder in another drive. Easier, and more space-efficient. Also, I think you should use HyperCam or something. It's annoying. You have a lot of glare. But not as much glare as pictures, obviously. That was A LOT.

Also, why'd you pay for a site maker. I would've made it for free for you.

Basically, Good work, looks great, looks risky (in the hospital), please use Hypercam, and snow ROCKS (I don't get any snow because I live in Egypt. But I have been in snow in Austria)

By the way, I noticed you used quicktime to play videos. Why don't you make your own video player. I did. If you want me to make one for you, I can.

Oh, and Rumpel, I called you Norwegian by accident. Sorry. Swedish. OK

TheShadowCookie Mar 12 2010, 9:53am replied:

Im not from the team -obviously- but I still would like to ask >)

What do you mean about the call part? That it would be more realistic with something like the HEV suit? Its a call, so you pick up and listen... the subs are surely optional. So whats not too realistic about it?

Just liked to ask >)

KarimIO Mar 12 2010, 10:09am replied:

Well, the subtitles. Since when do you see floating words? And the HEV suit would make it more realistic - because the HEV suit has a screen, with different elements on it. It'll just be more realistic. But I guess they're not aiming for a total realistic game. But it's still probably the best horror mod ever.

TheShadowCookie Mar 12 2010, 10:57am replied:

Ok, thought that you meant something like that. But its just a minor thing >)

In all games these days you see subtitles. Like D3ads mentioned here, sometimes you cant make out everything in certain scenes. I agree that I always try to play a game without subs because its more realistic. But its still nice to know that you can turn on some subs if you dont got everything that was said.

That other thing sounds like Simon should wear some suit xD Thats abit drifitng away from realistic and into Humans VS Aliens again lol

Of course you could now say *What is a perfect realistic game*? Like, Simon would need to eat, sneeze, take a nap - well, not really nessecary to mention it all ^^ I think the game has enough realistic aspects already like falling down stairs, using drugs as health and so on.

But Im sure Cry of Fear will be the best Half-Life 1 Horror mod ever, I certainly agree on that one >)

But Simon isn't seeing floating words. He's not seeing his health bar, he's not seeing his inventory, he's not seeing the main menu and he's not seeing the loading screens. Nor does he consider the day the mod is installed to be his birthday.

TheShadowCookie Mar 12 2010, 11:09am replied:

You could surely talk about if this is a game for Simon or for us, the audience >)

Of course, if its for Simon, its not a game for him, because its his RL, and we play the mod about Simons life, which is a mod, and he cant see our RL, because we play his life as a mod, so its a game for us and a RL experience for him.... yeah.

but what you said take sit to a new level >) Of course tis all realistic, for Simon, he really cant see anything of those things *laugh

KarimIO Mar 12 2010, 11:42am replied:

I just meant that it'd be good to have subtitles, but please make sure it's optional. Or you could have something to read it with. Just to add to the realism. It doesn't matter. Just an extra idea. And is this the only part of the WHOLE thing I wrote that anyone read? Just kidding :)

It's still an epic game! Still perfectly realistic (Not perfectly, but what is?) Great job, guys!

@Minuit, yeah, lol. Actually that'd be kinda funny...
@D3ads, I know. I agree, I also need subtitles sometimes.

The H4 originally costs around 3k Norwegian crowns (estimate 300£) and comes with QBase sound editing software. In my case the cost doesn't really matter, it was an investment with professional work in mind, not an idle purchase for use in modding only allthough its a nice bonus :)

Usually, the less the hardware costs the worse the quality. I had one recorder that sounded like I was talking under water, and thats a no go when you're recording voice and song :)

Some gamers are deaf, so there's that aspect to think about, plus I often miss bits of dialogue in games like Silent Hill audio wise when there's a lot of natter, so I turn subtitles on whenever possible. Who cares about realism in a game like this? :P

The 3rd installment of the thrilling Cry of Fear videocast series. This episode begins with an extremely interesting discussion with Stig, Simon's voice actor, and introduces the latest member to be added to our acting team. We then go over ruMpel's methods for texture work and end unspectacularly with my segment, where I cover... Not much. However, we've got a new website, so check that out!

A copy of the video can be downloaded here. You know. A version that actually works.
