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.

Delayed!We are working on total patching the game, fixing and the same time adding new features to gameplay.
The game must be well-tested and polished, and not be made by "being in hurry" like 26.02.15
That is why we decided to give us few weeks more, just for to be sured that everything works correct.

At the same time 26 April - is symbolic date for everyone of us.

It doesn't work on Half Life WON, it says that there is an error with the OpenGL driver, but it works fine on the Steam version of Half Life. Any solution?

Standalone version doesn't require hl1 and why can't you just repurchase it? It only costs like £5/$10

Does this work on Windows 7 64 bits? I bought a new computer and I've downloaded it, put it in the right folder but it says it can't find hl.exe
I really want to play this again. :(

Maybe you put it in the Half-Life folder, and not the Common folder.

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.
