The first patch to Cry of Fear is now finally released! It should make the mod more stable and fix a lot of annoying bugs that we sadly didn't have time to fix because of our promise to release the mod in time.


We've got a lot nice feedback from all of you, and most of it is so awesome! We are really glad that most of you enjoyed our mod! Even though there are a few people giving the mod unserious reviews like rating it 1, but oh well, that's what haters and trolls are for, isn't it?


On the other hand, we've been interviewed by Podcast 17. So if you want to hear an awesome interview and chit chat about Cry of Fear, please head over to this link!

Instructions for installing Cry of Fear v1.0

2. Download Cry of Fear here:

3. When you have installed it, launch the mod through the shortcut that automatically gets generated on your desktop.

  • Fixed num_edicts crash in the sewers
  • Fixed save/load bug
  • Fixed coop "server is full" when empty error
  • Potentially fixed crash when shooting hammer monsters stuck to the wall by the tentacles

  • Fixed picking up a new syringe while using your last one removing them both
  • Fixed dual wielding while in ironsights leaving you in ironsights
  • Fixed large icon in Steam
  • Slightly reduced monster attack distance
  • Fixed sprinting when underwater to make you move faster
  • Fixed being able to fall off the roof when given the yes/no prompt on the roofboss
  • Fixed level changes playing CD music if you have an audio CD in the drive.
  • Added missing voice chat key bind in options

Instructions for installing Patch v1.1

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\yourusername\half-life\CryOfFear\CoFLaunchApp.exe

2. Once your launch program is up, simply click "CHECK FOR UPDATES", and it will download it and install it for you automatically. Once the install is done, restart Steam.


That's all I have to say to you now. I hope you enjoy the mod!

Ah, love how you can dual wield the vp70, but I found a bug with that:

If dual weilding with glock and glock runs out of ammo before vp70, the vp70 will not fire even with bullets still in the magazine, and the glock will play the normal idle(non-empty) if you try to dry fire it while this glitch happens

People saying the mod deserves a 1/10 aren't trolls, their opiinions differs from yours and if that is how they feel, so be it. Calling them haters isn't any better either, you either like something or you don't. You can't call someone a name because they are impartial to something you like or have made.

But that's just me and id give the mod an almost perfect score- basing that only on an hour of gameplay. I am happy about the patch and can't wait to beat the game. Good work my good sir.

1/10 is a troll.

5/10 is base score. Basically, any game that works, and functions as intended, is a 5/10.

jo291 Feb 28 2012 replied:

Except for the one guy who gave it a 5/10 but then said stuff like

"People who are giving this a 10/10 are probably children who have no idea how to review a game. This game is not a 10/10, nor is it 9/10."


" I have beaten the game now, and my rating will not change, people who are down-rating this post are idiot fanboys who don't want to admit this game is sub-par."

Hey jerk!

Has it ever occurred to you that some people might just legit like the game more then you?

I voted 1 at first simply bec. I was in an outcast mood but after playing the game bug free so far I changed my vote haha can't believe that was possible at moddb and gave it a 10. awesome work indeed on an old engine that just won't die LoL! You guys made it look a little bit more better.

SabreXT Feb 29 2012 replied:

No. 5/10 means a game is average, run of the mill, nothing special or awful. Even so, some people couldn't launch the mod when it was first released, so that justification fails.

I've not played enough to review the game. I plan to do a video review of it.

It's hard to bash a game that is basicly free, but at the same time, it was super hyped. So most reviews are going to worthless fanboys vs trolls. At the same time, I'd imagine there are going to be some people who are disappointed, and some who love it. I'm with vcc2cc in that saying ANYONE who didn't give it a perfect score is automatically a troll is just as bad as the trolls saying anyone who gives a positive review is a fanboy.

People who rate this mod below 7/10 don't understand the game or are just too scared/hate it because of the bugs/are trolls.

An objective view is enough for an intelligent person, to see how much CoF continues to expand GoldSrc's assumed limitations.

Its not that they are giving the mod low ratings, its the reasons. Most of them are because of bugs and issues they faced or a certain feature they didn't like.

if you played on d3d try to switch over to opengl, maybe that helps.

[FH]Gorgutz Feb 29 2012 replied:

I can't really play the mod, playing on D3D, the game works just fine, but the lights on my phone won't work, and I need light for some pitch black rooms.

Using OpenGL gives me ugly textures and the game is very laggy, I read it had to do with my Nvidia Graphics card? D:

Anyways, for the possible time I could play the mod, its great!

Nah, I've played it on opengl. I don't know why it doesn't work anymore. Even the phone lost it's glow. (And no, it should still work at the point which I am at)

Can you add a manual download for the patch? The launch app isnt working for me even though I have microsoft whatever 4.0. It has never worked on my computer, so.... it would be great if you could post a manual download.

No manual patches, ever, only makes it easier for the Non-Steam ijits to play.

Of course someone will probably post one eventually. Also, you can't get the launch App to work? That's very odd man...

The launch app seems to be a problem for alot of people. I don't see why it's required.

Mkilbride Feb 29 2012 replied:

The Launch App has special fixes in it to make the mod not crash and run better on certain levels.

Hence why, some people launch it directly from Steam, and it crashes, most developers tell them to run the launcher, as it contains special fixes.
