What is the HL: PARANOIA?

Paranoia - it is a our single-player modification for Half-life. You will play the role of a russian officer of the secret service. Your first impressions are that this mission will be just like any other, but you really have no idea what nightmares future events have in store for you...

- New visual effects (bump mapping, gloss, detail textures, 3D sky etc).
- Improved AI of the enemy and friendly NPC.

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.

It's been five years since Paranoia has been released! I just can't believe it, the time flies so fast! I want to thank everyone for all your support through all these years!

You might be wondering, is there a sequel, or another project in development? Unfortunately we are not planning any sequel for Paranoia, but right now we are working on a small multiplayer project. You can find some info about it right here.

Today I have something special for those, who asked me to show some old footage from the early development stage. I quickly put together some ancient videos. Have fun! :)

"But perhaps it is smart to try to make this mod with the HL2-engine....don't get me wrong...the work you guys are doing looks really great...but imagition how it would look with the HL2 engine... "

I definatly agree there..but if they were to do that..they might as well finish it for this first.Pick up feedback about it, then transfer the game to hl2 and tweek it to their liking

Highest Rated (10 agree) 9/10

+ Awesome level design
+ First level is pure gold (bonus points if you are ex-USSR resident)
+ Quality custom content
- Somewhat average gameplay

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 1/10

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.
