The HOT QUESTION about SAFE PLAY: I've heard that playing your mod is a big risk for my STEAM account. The playing PARANOIA online can make my STEAM account banned by VAC. Is that true?

Answer: The anticheating services WILL NOT BAN YOUR ACCOUNT IF YOU PLAYING OUR MOD ONLINE. The VAC will detect opengl32.dll as a cheat in case if you will try to play another HL1 mod (CS1.6 for example) online on the server with VAC protection. We have NO PRECEDENT that some account was banned, because VAC just prevent you from playing on the server with anticheating protection. If you want to play online with other HL1 mods, just delete opengl32.dll file (or replace it to other detectory), but don't forget to put it back when you want to play PARANOIA. Without opengl32.dll in the Half-Life folder, the new graphic effects in PARANOIA will not be available.

Regarding the stand-alone v1.2.3, during all my gameplay I had a circle of red light around me that followed my movement and coated everything around me from ~2 meters forward. I had no other visible problems. Is there a solution for this?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

I don't know, but could you try go to PARANOIA - The Game Edition/paranoia/Userconfig.cfg and open it with notepad

and see this line
"Gl_modelrenderer 0" and turn it to "Gl_modelrenderer 1"

Hope it helps.

If the problem still exist, try to use Latest Xash3D Build, or use old Build of xash3d (Build 2664)

The rendering tweak didn't fully work, just made it cover a bit less surface, I tried to change the build to 3366 (stable), which made it worse, I don't know if I installed it correctly. I can send you a picture of the red light if you leave contact info.

ok then send it to me, never seen anything like this before

and 1 question, is this also happens to v1.2.2 ?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I would like to see in a future, a complete remake as Black Mesa Source.

I wonder why this great mod is not yet on steam, it would be great :)

Firstly, it has licensed music and some third party content.

Secondly, releasing mod on Steam will require some work of a programmer I don't have.

Thirdly, why not to enjoy it as it is? Classics never age! :)

Crashes when changing settings in the options menu, crashes when loading areas, crashes during gameplay...this has to be the most unstable mod I've ever played!

Judging from the comments, the mod-makers aren't going to fix it. That makes it even worse, imo.
