    Afraid of Monsters barely scared me and this is doing a good job so far.

    Also I need help..I have NO CLUE what to do at the park    There are a bunch of animal statues and ways to move them but I have no clue what to do..I found a large stone compass but that has been of no help..any ideas?   

    Wait I think I found what I needed.

    Yeah, I can't even play it. It's laggy as hell and I only manage to get to that bit with the computer in the cafe before it freezes on me and I have to restart the whole god damn cutscene.

    CoF is bonerific! I'm already at the 4th Chapter.


    Anyone else got that bug? It's basically your point of view projected at a different angle, upside-down in this case.

    Try using the 2D menu and disabling some features under Advanced in the Settings menu.

    Things pop out, I jump. I'm not afraid, it's just annoying after a while. :I
    You see, everyone says the right way to do the horror genre is to play with suspense and avoid jump scares- but you know, I stopped getting scared halfway through Amnesia because by this point I knew they wouldn't dare actually frighten me, just try to keep me unnerved. I got a bit tense during the chase scenes, that's pretty much it.

    For an effective horror game, you have to mix both styles, not adhere to one of them 100%.

    Everything runs smooth. But then I was walking in circles and opening the same doors, this happened:



    Everywhere I looked it was white. I thought it was part of the game, but nothing happened.

    I just completed my first singleplayer run. According to the stats, it took me about 5 hours, and there are still many unlockables left to unlock and different endings to achieve. It was a fantastic experience, but honestly, this wasn't nearly as frightening or unnerving as Afraid of Monsters.

    For anyone who wants to get the most out of singleplayer, I would highly recommend that you do not play co-op first. As has been known for a while, the co-op maps are basically just the singleplayer campaign in reverse. I didn't play co-op first, but I did watch Spike and Barley's pre-release Livestream and it really spoiled much of the ending section of the mod for me.

    But with all that said, I definitely can't deny the fact that Cry of Fear is, without question, the finest row boat simulator on the GoldSource engine.

    So far it's pretty good, dual welding is really useful and the dodging is also really cool, but the game keeps crashing every 30 minutes or so for me. I think I'll have to wait for a fix before playing more.

    Um, the launcher comes standard with the game. It should be on the desktop.

    Well I get a very similiar issue. But instead of it complaining about it being on Direct 3D mode it says it's on software. Yes, I run the game through the custom launcher, it seems like it ALWAYS goes like this:
    1: I set the resolution at the launcher, 1280x720 since I intend to record for youtube, however when inside the actual game, it seems to be 800x600 no matter what I picked for resolution or custom resoltuion.
    2: After it actually launches the game, no matter if it's in 16 bit mode or not, it always says the game doesn't "support the current video mode" and switches it to software automatically.

    3: 2D menu or 3D menu, both work fine. When starting a new game, the game warns me one more time that the game doesn't support software mode and I should switch to openGL.

    4: Now I have two options there, either I just click cancel and it loads the game anyways, with some really odd graphical glitches, presumably from running in software mode anyways. (Notice it's stuck to low resolution)


    Or I tell it to change to openGL, if I do that, it tells me that it's set to openGL and to restart steam. I do it, launch the game, back to step 1.

    tl;dr : Game launches, changes to software mode automatically, then bitches about it not being able to run in that mode, only openGL. Restart game, repeat.

    Video card is an ATI HD 4890 by the way, just updated to latest drivers two days ago D:

    Any help would be appreciated as I have been waiting for this game for way too long, as I'm sure many of you have



    UPDATE!: Ok I seem to have fixed the issue. It's a really dumb thing really. For some reason my monitor refresh rate was at 59 hz and openGL just went weird while doing that, I ran the game through steam forcing my resolution and 60 hz refresh rate (after changing my own to 60 of course) via -w 1280 -h 720 -refresh 60 and it ran perfectly. Now running through the launcher gets it to regular openGL mode like it should. Perfect.

    Now, I need a    ladder to climb back out    but I can't find it. Any ideas?

       It's in the basement. You'll need to do some swimming. The ladder is in the same place you found the video tape.

    I had this error too. Add the following command to the mod's launch options to rectify it:
