    I got Ending 4 on my first run and I honestly thought I got     a neutral one    at best. Then I watched the other ones. Oh, lord, that must be    depressing to end the game on. The best ending is literally the only way to at least keep him from blowing his brains out   

    Anyway, my thoughts?
    First of all, it's maybe the best single-player GoldSrc mod I've played. The production time and efford put into it really show, RumPel knows the engine back and forth by now. It is all the way up there with Paranoia, when it come to overhauling it. The creature design is messed up, in a good way. Garbage-bagged babies and womb-breaching knife fetuses, It's all there. The level-design is top-notch, especially the psychosis-stages. There is a shitload of backtracking for the fuses, though, but hey, if you're a modder and you model an entire part of your city, you won't just let it go to waste by not making it a reoccuring stage, so I find it justified in that way. Horror-wise, there are a lot of jump-scares, but also a fair share of stages that leave you defenseless, running for your life or simply disturbed by the setting. As far as puzzles go, they don't hinder progress too much to seem forced for the most part, but the inventory suffers from the same problems as in many silent hill, resident evil-type games. Drop a syringe to pick up a shotgun may be a valid gameplay device (health for firepower) but the logical inconcistency is often striking, especially if puzzle-based objects cause you to backtrack for that one thing you had to drop to make room.
    My only major criticism is the storyline and implementation of psychosis.    When Simon is having one of his episodes, little actually represents his subcontious, struggles or trauma. Okay, you have the settings, you re-visit places that had an impact on his life so far, some enemies represent things around him in reality and the 'I want my feet back'-bit, but most of it is just a mish-mash of scary things, like the child molester's apartment from the beginning. It has little to nothing to do with the story and we can only guess it's meaning. Was it a traumatizing event from simons past, did he witness the horrible acts in his neighborhood that scarred him? Possible, but the thing is, it is not integrated into the whole of the story, so you could replace it with anyting basically.    The boss battles are also a bit too easy and thrown together    Most bosses can be defeated by just keeping distance and hitting the weak spot, and they don't make much sense other than being specially big, strong monsters. They could have had a bit more refined attack patterns and strategies, or have some relation to the story.    But that is just nitpicking, since I had an overall enjoyable experience.
    I have yet to try coop, so I haven't seen it all as of now.

    i think something's wrong guys

    at first it started and it froze at "parsing server" or something, i alt-tabbed and there was a window saying Cry of Fear doesn't work with software mode and asked me if I wanted to use open GL or something.
    if i pressed yes the game would just exit and the same thing would happen if i started the game again, if i pressed no the game would continue loading and get to the main menu.

    i looked at the options in the main menu and the letters were distorted so i couldn't read shit, so i just decided to start a new game.
    the cutscene began and i saw some bright red and blue bushes in the background and i don't think they were supposed to be there...

    and also it had this weird black frame like this the whole time, and when the cutscene was over i started spinning around uncontrollably and really fast.

    what is going on help
    Looks like the vignette shader malfunctioning.

    Are your graphics drivers up-to-date, factory settings? (like, you haven't changed any quality settings in there and aren't forcing AA/AF through them?)

    There arent alot of jump scares. But be ready for anything, at any time, some encounters are randomized and you may find a monster behind after lets say interacting with a door.

    This jump scare is kind of cheap, so I'm just going to spoil it... but on the forest levels in co-op, if you got to close to a tree, some random woman would drop down screaming while being hung.

    I'm guessing that's going to be in the singleplayer too.

    Half-Life is set on software mode. Open up half-life and switch to open GL and then start the mod up. Cry of Fear does not work properly on software mode OR D3D (in software mode you already see the problem and in D3D the lighting system doesn't work).
    I had the same problem.

    I tried playing the mod again and had to quit within the first 15 or so seconds because i felt terrified, I think i somehow have a phobia of this game.
    Uh if you felt terrified, big deal keep playing that's the point of the game to feel terrified.

    I have two corrections for that list I originally posted:

       If you beat Nightmare mode, you get the FAMAS G2 with infinite ammo.
    If you unlock the room in heaven, you get the Axe, a reference to the weapon from AoM.
    And this isn't a correction, but I determined that if you get an S rank, you unlock the book laser. 
      

    Also,    unlocking the camera weapon seems to be bugged as you don't have to beat the game in under 2.5 hours to acquire it. You either unlock it from getting any ending or just Ending 4 as someone mentioned earlier.

        You don't get FAMAS by delivering the package, you get the AoM:DC axe, but you don't just deliver the package. You go to the code room (where you would fight the evil David Leatherhoff) and then there's an axe there.

    You get the FAMAS by beating nightmare mode.

    You also get the Simon's book that shoots lasers if you get a rank S.

    The black metal suit isn't obtained by beating co-op, but by getting all other hoodies. 
      

    Damnit ninja'd


       Also I can confirm that the Simon's book doesn't shoot lasers, but spouts FIRE!

    Have to start over again after I loaded the maps when I fucked the cage bit. Goddamnit...
    Did co-op trying to avoid the inevitable of reloading a new game. Ended up being called the "Stick Brigade" and hitting all the enemies with sticks in the woods and even killing Simon by mobbing him as a wild pack of Swedish policemen armed with sticks...

    In launch options for the game put this -num_edicts 2047

    you are talking about the room you go into after you burn that rope and get the item from that room right?
