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.

For everyone got the random crashes problem, try running Paranoia on just one core. To do it, run the launch.bat on the paranoia folder, then Alt+Tab to the desktop. Open Task Manager, look for process named hl.exe, right click, click Set Affinity, and uncheck all cpu except CPU 0. You need to do this everytime you run paranoia.

Will there be any chance of this coming to the Linux platform, since Half-Life is out on this platform too?

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.
