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.

If you want to save your settings - change them and quit the game normally. Then they will be saved and restored on next launch. If you got a crash, your recently changed settings will not be saved.

Certain unstability - it's initial problem of the mod and it don't depend on used engine. So yes, sometimes you will have crashes. I hope that upcoming PARANOIA 2 will be more stable and most of potential problems will be fixed.

What about graphics settings, you can check config.cfg or opengl.cfg files in the mod's folder. They contains different cvars, which can affect various parameters. But the mod doesn't have something like special menu for graphics settings.

If you have any problem with display settings, delete video.cfg file inside "paranoia" folder (which contains all mod's resources). Then you will start the game with default settings (800x600 windowed mode). To avoid problems do not set ingame resolution higher, then your monitor can normally display.

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.
