Patch for 64 bit users question
« on: 11 April, 2014, 10:39:00 AM »
Good day!
So i really want to finish the game on nightmare difficulty so i'm thinking on installing this patch.

I just really want to know if this is completely safe, is there any way of getting VAC banned because of this ?

Sorry for being a moron.

I'm pretty sure that the patch does result in a VAC ban on Co-op servers. I'm not completely sure because I didn't need to download it myself, but when looking up to see if it would fix my friends game, people said that it does result in a VAC ban.

Two spots above this thread is a stickied thread about CoF and VAC.

Cry of Fear has never, and will never cause a VAC ban.

That's true for the Vanilla CoF that we have shipped. But the third party stuff that was added to it by our community, such as the 64 bit patch, is not guaranteed VAC safety. So it's on your own risk, and is not under our responsibillity.

A proper report of playing online with that patch is appriciated though, as I don't like hearing rumours. They tend to spread bad propaganda.

Yeah if someone played with this patch online or offline please post here.

I'm only going to play single player, but in games like Dead Island VAC works when you play alone too, so does VAC work in singleplayer in this game too ?

or does this work :
"-insecure"

and then check with :

"status"

I played this game a lot of times and i love it but i'm not sure if you need VAC for this , i mean CO-OP is not something huge or difficult.
Back when this was a mod a lot of people did not play this game because of that false rumor that you get banned because of COF, glad thats over but now this patch is a big question mark.
