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.

I have no idea about reliase date, because we are not game company. We just guys who likes experiments for HL1 engine. :) We are working on project, but only at free time. It is the general reason of delay. Don't worry, it will be done as soon as we can.

the team said they're going to release it in 2007 so to everyone asking the very latest should be december 31st 2007, and to everyone asking whether or not its for hl or hl: source, hl: source is NOT listed as a game on moddb, if you want a copy of hl then get one off of amazon or something, that should clear things up

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.
