News / Play Resident Evil: Cold Blood!
« on: 20 March, 2014, 09:14:27 AM »
Do you want more of us? Why not play our other mod called Resident Evil: Cold Blood. It's another mod developed by us, Team Psykskallar, and was released back in 2007. The mod is co-op, and is set in the Resident Evil universe.

Be aware though, since the mod is using features that Windows Vista/7/8 is not supporting, the mod can get a little buggy. But there is ways around it! Follow this guide on how to get it to work:

What you need installed:

  • Steam
  • Half-Life 1

1. Download RE:CB here:

2. Install it.

3. Restart Steam.

4. Launch RE:CB from the Steam Games Library.

5. Set your settings in Options. It is important you do this, as you need to configure your settings before you do step 6.

6. Go to your Half-Life folder, located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life. From there, right-click hl.exe, and go to Properties. In the tab Comtatibility, check the box "Run this program in compatibility mode for:", and choose "Windows 98 / Windows Me".

7. Now you can play the mod properly. However, if you try to change the options settings, the game will crash. In order to set the options, you need to uncheck the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box in the hl.exe properties.

8. In order to play with your friends in a server, someone needs to host one. There are different ways of doing this. Either you have to port forward your router (which there are several tutorials on), or you need to use a program called Hamachi. There are many tutorials on how to do this. The steps are the same as Counter-Strike, Sven Co-op or any other Half-Life mod.

Campaign Competition Results

The 9 months old Campaign Competition has finally reached it's end! The results are here, and we have a winner! The reason it was delayed was due to some conflicts and the work with Cry of fear stand alone.

Watch the video below to find out the scores and the winner of the competition.

64 Bit Patch

Earlier this week, we released a patch that was made by the community. This patch is meant to make Cry of Fear more stable, and fix a couple of memory crashes.

You can download it here, but keep in mind that you need to be a 64 bit user and have at least 4 GB of RAM:

News / Co-op Server browser
« on: 19 May, 2013, 12:17:41 AM »
So it seems like the server browser problem we have in Cry of Fear is caused by the fact that we don't have any master server. There are tons of servers for CoF, but they are not displayed in the server browser. Here you can find a list of the servers:

We have tried to resolve this problem with no success. So I'm going to try and reach out to you, the community, to help out with setting this up! So please leave a comment in this thread, and let's try and figure this out together!

So far, you need a master server:

And we also found out that you need these files from Half-Life/valve folder:


Comment guys!


What should you do first of all?
  - Search the forum for threads that may have already issued a solution to the problem you are experiencing. Often a bug has already been fixed! Scroll down at the end of this page to see the known issues.
  - If the bug or problem occurs only once, it might not be that important to report. However does it occur several times or in certain locations, please give us a good description as mentioned below.

What should your report include?
  - Proper grammar, you most likely have a functional keyboard, don't write things like "y u no fx tis" when using this forum
  - System specifications
  - What does it say and where does the problem occur (error window, crash to desktop etc)
  - What you have tried to fix the issue yourself

When will you get help?
  - As soon as we can! Please understand that we are a small team, and like most of you have a life outside the internet as well!

Remember that more details will increase the chance for us being able to help you!

Here is a list of the current known issues that have shipped with Cry of Fear. Most of those bugs are being worked on and we will try to patch it up as soon as we can.

First map transition, crashes and complaining about v_mobile
Solution: We have no idea why this is happening that early, since it has not happened to any of us developers.
Read more here about the issue:
Read this thread that have helped some people:
If you are a 64 bit user, you can try this patch:
Status: This bug is being looked at

Co-op doesn't work / No servers available
Solution: Co-op does work. It's just that it doesn't show any servers in the server browser. Read this thread:
You can also find servers for Cry of Fear on this website:

UPDATE: This website doesn't seem to display the servers up to date anymore, which means they might not work.
Status: This bug is being looked at

Music and gun sounds doesn't play
Solution: Launch Cry of Fear by heading over to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cry of Fear\CoFLaunchApp.exe"
Status: This bug is being looked at

Rarely your screen will become white
Solution: Restart the game, or turn off the water effects in Advanced options
Status: This bug is being looked at

Screen resolution gets messed up when tabbing out to Windows
Solution: Make sure your PC (WINDOWS) has the same screen resolution as the game, or play in window mode
Status: No plans on fixing it.

Reliable channel overflow
Solution: You can fix this yourself by configuring some settings. Head to this thread to learn more:
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

Offset is donator
[Solution: Happens when you try and launch CoF in Software mode and not OpenGL mode
Status: Fixed

Steam Validation Reject
Solution: 1.) Try and restart CoF. 2.) Try and restart Steam. 3.) Tell the host to restart the server.
Status: Nothing we can fix. It's a Steam bug.

Monsters going through objects
Solution: Happens from the new AI update. No solution for that
Status: This bug is being looked at

Game crashes on "parsing information" stage when loading
Solution: Read this thread
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

Game is stuttering/tearing with sound, very low FPS
Solution: Turn off any lights sources (such as the phone) when you don't need them. Turn off any driver enforced renderings (such as anti-aliasing). Experiment with the video advanced options.
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

Game textures look very lowly detailed
Solution: Turn your driver enforced texture filtering quality to medium/quality mode and off of low/performance mode.
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

Sometimes the textures will look weird and bugged if you're playing for a long time (2h+)
Solution: Restart the game
Status: This bug is being looked at

Cry of Fear still crashes when I launch it
Solution: Make sure your video drivers are up to date
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

"CLR error 80004005, The program will now terminate."
Solution: Your .NET Framework was installed incorrectly. Read more here:
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

"Failed to initialize authentication interface. Exiting..."
Solution: Try turning Steam off, then deleting the clientregistry.blob file in your Steam folder. Then start Steam again
Status: We cannot fix this since this is caused by your bad settings

"Crashes when I die in the subway tunnels"
Solution: Make sure to not die when holding a lit flare
Status: We're working on fixing this

« on: 07 May, 2013, 05:37:09 AM »
As the title says, I'm eager to see how you all look like, as it feels like we are all friends. Instead of meeting up in real life, why not post a picture of yourself. :yow:

All of you probably already know how I look like, but I'll start anyway. :joebiden:

News / Cry of Fear Release Date
« on: 18 April, 2013, 01:16:23 AM »
Release Date
As shown on Facebook and our main website, we have set the release date of the Stand Alone release for April 24th, which is in a week.
Cry of Fear will be re-released for free on Steam, where you won't need Half-Life to play it. It will be completely stand alone.

As you may have noticed, we have now switched over to IndieDB, or rather, the games section.
What this means, is that Cry of Fear is no longer a mod, but a game. This means that other people can create mods for Cry of Fear as in Custom Campaigns. Some examples of that are:

See you the 24th of April
But until then, follow us on our website

Cry of Fear Customisation / Create ModDB pages for your campaigns!
« on: 16 April, 2013, 07:12:07 PM »
As Cry of Fear have now switched over to the games section in IndieDB, you are now able to create mods for Cry of Fear on ModDB. IamBulletProof did this first with his campaign Lost Echo. I'd love if you could create ModDB pages for your own custom campaigns as well. Wether they are released or not. It's a good way to keep track of your stuff, rather than a forum thread. We should still keep your forum threads though. :)

Here's his mod page:
