Start with Shadow of Chernobyl and get ZRP and Shaders Max. That's it.

ZRP comes with a easy to use modyfier program that allows you to tweak some small things. It can also change the ballistics if you can't stand the vanilla ones.

Good hunting, stalker

People get pissed about Complete 2009 because it's dishonestly advertised as consisting of nothing but graphical improvements and bug fixes, when in reality it alters gameplay a very significant amount from the vanilla game.

I mean, yeah, it's not that big of deal, just don't fucking play it. But it's the dishonesty of the modders and the subsequent parroting of the thing as the "essential beginner mod" that irks STALKER 'purists.'

It was for the best, anon.
The next step was consolization, which Sergei had planned from the beginning. As much as I would jump for joy for STALKER 2, I know deep down that it would only lead to disappointment down the road.

Imagine playing a game, like Stalker, dumbed down so it could work with controller schemes.
Console ports are not good anymore. They're either designed for them in the first place, or their exclusive.
I remember a time where developers would completely change game engines just to get games working on different platforms. It's all about money now. Just look at TW3.

GSC had progression down, but ultimately dropped it in CoP. I've never seen another game that does item, level, and difficulty progression as well as Stalker.

It really is the biggest issue in The Witcher series for me, plus the awful combat.

Contrary to popular belief, AKs are not elder gods that never jam. They're as reliable as the average modern AR platform when under stress like being dropped into mud and sand.

They were just more average than early AR models back in the 50's~60's, and were since then surpassed. That's literally it.

Consult this Starting Guide,
then see the /vg/'s huge Stalker General for more tips and links: >>>/vg/stalker

Play in the release order. Start with no mods - only latest patch, OR get the full "Starter Pack" first; these contain bug-fixers and light visual mods that can help performance as well.
Leave big overhauls for later playthrougs. Avoid the "Complete" -mods. Always play on MASTER difficulty for best realism and atmosphere, and disable crosshair.

Don't give up in the beginning! The starting gear sucks ass and first area is quite boring.

>It's blows total dick without a small graphics mod and some bug fixes


Also, there's definately going to be a STALKER 2 now that GSC Game World is back in business. It was their most popular franchise by far, was it not? Cossacks was big too and I think it was their first game, which is why they're currently making a new one.
>>
>>324187141
Is that still around? I remember halfway through the beta; it was right around the time they introduced melee weapons that the game had completely been flooded with assholes and the mechanics were so easy to abuse that the only real threat was getting shot to death by 12 year olds who want your baked beans.

I tried to play SoC without savescumming, but everything past red forest is fucking bullshit. Why does the difficulty takes such a huge jump there?
>>
So it's been quite a while since I played the Stalker games. I played SoC vanilla and with some mod that adds all kinds of shit to it. I played CoP vanilla and one of the very first Misery versions. It wasn't even called Misery then. Can't remember. Anyway I waited for Misery and then everyone said it turned out to be shit. Then I waited for Gunslinger and then that never came.
So what should I play?!
Any major mod release for SoC?

What I Played: Misery 2.0

What I Expected: Base game + more weapons + difficulty boost to spice up the otherwise easy and predictable game

>Game starts you off with virtually no essentials, no money, no binoculars, the most trivial repair/medical tools for the apparent million ways you can get fucked from anything, and just enough firepower to make it to a neutral zone
>Even when moving as slow and silent as possible, The Zone's creatures can sense you from outside your draw distance and even the weakshit fleshpounds will rip your shit open if you don't watch your ass 24/7
>Your mint-condition starting weapons may as well be pea shooters compared to what the enemies are packing, as their cheap-shit 5x45 weapons easily out-range your weapons, meaning that even the Sniper class can get out-sniped
>God forbid you get spotted by an enemy STALKER out in the open, they now have DarkSim reflexes and can one-shot you in your artery before you can even search to find them first, let alone retreat and recover to figure out what the fuck just happened
>On top of all of this, a blowout is scheduled to happen 5 minutes into the game, so right out of the gate you're trying to move fast enough to reach Beard but also not make any noise to broadcast your location to every monster in the area

What I Got: Brutal 10-inch sandpaper rape with no lube and they don't call the next morning. And I haven't even made it past the first fucking DAY. Heed the warnings, they are not fucking bluffing when they call this mod "Misery".

Grigorovich ran the company and dev team right into the ground due to obsessing over making STALKER a mainstream franchise/IP while greedily chasing the dollar. Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat were pushed out too quickly, the team not given time to breath after the lengthy development nightmare Shadow of Chernobyl was, while he wanked off books, tshirts, TV series deal, comics, and other junk that he figured would make him a fortune. When the time came for STALKER 2 Grigorovichwas fixated on making it a big console game alongside PC, and production and dev team crumbled under the financing and development pressure.

I don't doubt a modern STALKER with expected modern production values (let's be real, /v/ has a tendency to shit on "ugly" games just as much as normies, even if many don't like to admit it) would cost a small fortune compared to the original, which would probably require a console port. But even so, the handling of this IP and the dev team is one of the biggest fuck-ups in the industry. STALKER was a miracle that almost didn't happen several times over the multi-years it took to churn through development and design problems. It didn't even match the original promise, was buggy and janky as fuck, but still a gem of a game and unlike anything out there. The fact it finally got made, and was good, is amazing. And at the very least was a great starting point to build the series. Say what you will about CDPR, they at least had the smarts to take their team with each of the three Witcher games. They let each one cook and never rushed into thinks (port/remake of the original for consoles aside). Grigorovich on the other hand ran the entire fucking franchise into the ground, effectively ruining its future forever.

Actually that was really impressive, it fires manually even after the entire chamber has been compromised. I mean you watch the AR15 one and he's right, it's designed to not allow itself to be compromised, but that doesn't really answer the question "will it fire when compromised?" which is the point.
>>
>>324192567
Even in the first Misery, I spent a couple of weeks (in-game time) barely making enough money to eat and heal myself day-to-day. As a sniper, I had to choose between buying ammo or buying tuna cans many times. Once you get your bearings, though, the game gets real good.
Misery 2, though, fuck that piece of shit. They added so much unnecessary complexity to it, fucked the economy, and gave the enemies godly aim, that it went from being "enjoyably painful in a masochistic way" to "STOP I FORGOT THE SAFE WORD I FORGOT THE SAFE WORD STOP PLEASE".

So? The company exists because of russian customers mostly.

90% of all mods for the games are made by russians.

The main-voice is russian, there wasn't even an ukrainian voice till a year ago patched in.


Your argument is stupid, since these ukrainians are making games for russians about guys who use russian weapons, talk russian and try to be badass - all in russian.
