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 need help with this mod. Im playing it on the new build of half life which is known to be problematic with some mods. with this mod it used to delete the OpenGL32.dll when i launched the any half life mod until i used the read only option for that file. but issues keep persisting in the mod. most notably that it does not want to render the flashlight correctly and renders a part of the game much harder to play. I N33D HEELP!

open the console and enter this command: gl_dynlight 1.
If that dont work, right click Paranoia's shortcut, properties and add this parameters in the target line:
-OpenGL -steam -appid 70

Hope it works

wait wait. false alarm. i know what is causing the issue now. Ok let me explain. so when i did what you told me it worked just fine but it was dropping some frames which was happening because i updated my graphics drivers recently (today) and it reset the settings in the control panel to run the game with my integrated graphics. when i switched to the dedicated card im having the same problem again. when i open the console right after loading my game it says Warining: no stencilbits! help.

Cskiller1337 Jul 3 2013, 12:20am replied:

man I really dont know what to do now. This solution worked for me at the cost of some fps drop (cuz its a natural issue of OpenGL becaus it requires too much strenght of the graphic card). But I had to take paranoia ou this computer to a computer with more space cuz I have a lot of half life mods, cs 1.6 standalone, Unreal tournament 99 and a lot of other games. In the other computer the error never happened again and the game is running normally with the "natural" fps drop when I start/load the game and even during the gameplay but it does not bother me that much. I'm going to install paranoia in this computer and try to see if the same thing happens cuz I found nothing about stencilbits on the internet, it is probably a particular error in the game, if I fail to help you, you should probably contact the developers.

NPCs or monsters can be stupid, but it's not a problem of the mod. It's an original problem of Half-Life. What about crashes - this mod and HL engine were created for a long time ago. So the mod was created for and tested with old versions of Half-Life, Windows and PC hardware. Moreover, latest Valve's updates of engine made many HL mods bugged or unstable.

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.
