So they haven't managed to fix the problems with the Half-Life engine yet that Cry of Fear and other mods had. Our back up plan is to finish off the Stand alone version instead (Steam version), where we are using the Half-Life engine before they added the Linux update.

Small update

As you may have noticed, Cry of Fear does no longer work due to the Half-Life engine update Valve released to give support to Linux users. We got in contact with Valve, and they tried to fix the issues.

So they haven't managed to fix the problems with the Half-Life engine yet that Cry of Fear and other mods had. Our back up plan is to finish off the Stand alone version instead (Steam version), where we are using the Half-Life engine before they added the Linux update.

We will try and focus all we can now in order to get the stand alone version up and running. It will basically be a better version than the original Cry of Fear, and it will contain the biggest change list ever. It will be known as v1.6.

We have most set already, we're just focusing on fixing up the remaining bugs and polish it a bit before we release it. It will be free, and it will not require Half-Life to play it. It will be completely stand alone, and it will no longer be a mod. It will be a game.

Thanks for your patience.

Anniversary

Today it's been one year since Cry of Fear got released. We've seen awesome feedback from the community and players, and it's been a huge success. Our goal with the anniversary was to reach a half million downloads (on ModDB), and indeed we did reach that with currently 506,344 downloads.

Thank you all who have played Cry of Fear and shared it around. It's really nice to see as a developer.

Problems

As you may have noticed, Cry of Fear is not in a good shape anymore, since Valve have released an engine update to Half-Life, which have broken many Half-Life mods, including Cry of Fear. It's up to Valve to fix these issues. I've made a list in our forums that we send to Valve ourselves. So far they have fixed one issue. Please help us report bugs here: Cry-of-fear.com

Steam Release

Many people are waiting on the Steam release (Cry of Fear Stand Alone), which indeed is cool, BUT! The release will take a little bit longer. As I said before, we wanted to release it today, but due to the engine update that Valve have released, it's made us focus on the mod rather than the game, since we want people to be able to play CoF while they wait. After Valve have fixed the engine, we will then take their changes, which will make the process take a little longer. James (Minuit) is the guy responsible for the release. If you have any questions, ask him.

Can we expect the stand alone release next week or so? I've been itching to play it badly for...over a month now.

Can't wait to see the improvements, too, especially the inventory screen.

**** yea I almost thought Cry of fear was dead for a few days now :/ As usual best of luck you guys are better off without Valve ... they break just about everything these days with no regard for the modding community.

It's a real shame that they have fallen so far tho ... you know seeing as they were one of the few companies that used to support mods.

RIP Valve you were the **** back in the day :_(

Ah come on they aren't that bad, EA offered Gabe Newel 1 billion $ for Valve, Gave gave them the middle finger :P and just imagine if he accepted, they would turn Ep 3 into Carl of Dunky with day 1 DLC, oh and to see the real ending you would have to buy a 9.99% DLC for the last chapter of the game, who knows what else? My point is is that not every video game company rejects 1 billion $ :P

Someone should have suit them already rather then waiting worthless time for it. Because, they're nothing more like Google only wanted to earning more money by ruling our life. Anyway, It is just sad, that this such wonderful project being dead all because of those morons have did it to you. Hopefully, you can announced something in the future. Good Luck.

How could anyone possibly sue them for this?

Makes no sense.

Wasn't there a comic or something that was announced a few weeks before the mod itself came out? What happen to that?

This mod should have been stand-alone right at the very beginning.

But I glad finally you guys are on to it, since Valve cannot fix the modding else that changed HL forever.

Why are people still blaming Valve for this? The only mods that are broken are the ones that use heavily modified versions of the engine.

Someone please explain why Valve should have to do anything about that? Fix your own broken *** engine!

I'm really psyched for a stand-alone version of Cry of Fear.
I've been wanting to play it forever and now when I finally have the chance, it doesn't work anymore!
Hope the stand alone comes out soon!
