Paranoia
« on: 18 June, 2012, 04:22:50 AM »
I think there's quite a few of you who haven't played it, so I'm making this up for those people.

Paranoia is a Half-Life mod single-player mod. You play a member of the Russian Federal Security Service unit spetsgruppa "Alpha". You are called to the Udarnik Industrial Complex after terrorists invade the area. The mod is entirely in Russian with subtitles in English (also in German and Spanish).

The coder for this mod created the custom renderer which was eventually used in CoF.

It's good to make people know that mod, without it CoF wouldn't be what it is ^^

I have to say, I enjoyed Paranoia. I remember I was afraid that Paranoia would become a bigger success than AoM:DC, since they both were being released at the same time, since Paranoias graphics was fucking awesome at that time.

Although, I got a bit disappointed that the Paranoia team had used so much stuff from CSCZ and HL2, and the fact that it's like 1 hour long. But nonetheless, excellent mod.

So, how did the moddb mod of the year awards go on 2007  :yow: ?

Paranoia used the animations and a few props from CZ:DS, the HL2 content used came from the beta.

Depends on the game, beta HL2 content can be used for anything on a non-profit basis, Valve stated this once Missing Information started using it. CZ:DS was made by a now defunct company and it's not clear who owns the copyright, even so.. no one really cares about it anymore since it's a horrible game and it's best to use the models for decent mod efforts imho.

I can't play this mod without it crashing every 15 minutes each time I open a door, whats wrong?

I would really love a fix because I want to play this excellent mod, I haven't even got to the horror part yet :(

I loved this game too when I played it. My only gripe is that it ends just when you think its starting to take off  :stig:

Haven't finished it yet, but its a pretty good mod, thought it'd be scarier though.

There are no VAC issues with any mod unless you use the Bloom mod opengl32 dll...

I can't play this mod without it crashing every 15 minutes each time I open a door, whats wrong?

Are you running Windows 7? The mod came out in 2007 and it didn't exist back then so it was never tested on it, hence issues. Try compatability mode in XP, failing that.. I don't know what to suggest since the devs have all moved onto other things now.
