This OP posts are well done. Thank you for not pastbining the repos.
I have the same with one friend about everything but STALKER. Pretty annoying. And how am I supposed to response? "Heh, that's funny"?
Is it only me, that it takes forever to post here?
They get used all the time. I've even seen them linked in fucking gsc threads. Also it's the only place i know where to get old mods that will never get updated, mods like legendary and such.

I know taht feel bro. I've done the samething and merged a build i was working on with the backup deleteing all my improvements.

Where does one acquire a Vintorez in AA2? Voronin gives an SV-98 for the "find the advanced rifle" mission, and I can't seem to find one in Pripyat either.

I'm not seeing anything wrong here. This guy obviously knows his shit and is a good resource for anything Stalker.
Does MSO mess up the Morgan's PDA/Duty stash mission?
I gave the PDA to Shulga and it immediately gives me the quest to take anything from the stash and when I get there, there is this one guy without a squad leader that starts shooting me when I get close.
Could someone do me a favor and upload SoC's fxgame.ltx for me?
My disk drive won't read my SoC disk so I've spent the past three hours downloading the repack but the archive is reporting that the fsgame.ltx file is corrupt so it just extracts a blank file.

AS "val" Sniper or SVD ?
I cant make my mind up.
Also are there any better shotguns available ?
Is there some easy way to edit Misery so I don't lose stamina from just walking around? I'm under my optimal carry weight and I still lose stamina from just a casual jog. Yes it's realistic, no it's not fun.
Not him but can anyone else confirm? I've been thinking of replaying with ZoA since I finished the game with AMK1.4 a few days ago. Is 1.07.2 from the moddb page still the newest release?
Clear Sky started crashing on me recently... I haven't played it in awhile, but I did just install the Sky Reclamation Project mod. When I go to load my save, it crashes to desktop, and gives me an xRay engine error. What should I do?
Jesus, Preacher, you need to do something about Traders dropping their inventories on death, don't get me wrong. It is helpful when one or two die and you get your choice of gear. But it is extremely overpowered.
Currently playing as Assault in Misery but I have to stop every minute to catch my breath. I'm a fucking slug. Navigating any sizable distance is a pain in the ass.
Should I restart as Recon or Sniper?
>tfw no one has added more missions or at least interesting ones to DMM.
Every time I start playing I just play for an hour before getting bored. I really wish there were some interesting original missions outside of the main story missions and the generic ones. Even more types of generic missions would be okay.

Jesus Christ DMM needs more missions, I wish I knew how to add them. I'd add escort missions and likely faction defence/attack stuff. Like get a mission from the duty leader to help a squad attack the freedom base.
no you get people popping up on your map if they get close enough.
only useful if you're fighting the bandits at their checkpoint without cheesing them or you're functionally retarded
>lovely robocop arms
This fucking loner man...
I gave him a medkit after I found him laying around the car park and he immediately run off to beat a dog. So I just gave him a sawn-off I had just looted. We did the whole car park- DV exit-bridge-farm-car park-village tour, shooting everything on sight.
Yes, get 1.0 if you only want to hear them when they're bleeding out on the ground, or 1.1 if you want to hear them when they die as well
Some people didn't like them so I decided to just keep it separate
>Some will bash Complete for having altered some difficulty settings and making the game "easier" which is subjective and I don't have an issue with.
They're attacking a bloodsucker
Good fucking god
Making the guns more accurate does not necessarily make it easier. less frustrating, yes, but not necessarily easier. Hence why we always recommend playing on master. Do you consider LURK or Misery easy? Rather, they are renowned/maligned for their difficulty, which is due in part to the much improved accuracy of the weapons.

I've searched the Internet, most common solution is that the game isnt patched to the correct number, which would be 1.5.
Anyone know any large gun mods? I just got the game and downloaded Auroua, I was fucking flabbergasted with how cool the envoirment is. I want to enhance it even farther with more weapons this time. Any good ones?
I havent applied the newest translation, most of the translations are bulk translated meaning not very specific
Half of your conversations feel like Russians are having some of the deepest conversations ever without being able to speak English past a third-grade level

"was going and then all were dead for I was only one alive stalker, was very scare"
That being said it
s pretty fuckin hard since most objectives don't have the waypoints and Bloodsuckers are insane to deal with
They're also fucking everywhere
Psydogs are worse than fucking Controllers because they're fast as shit and still attack you while creating mini blow outs
While 90% of items have descriptions
Only like 20% have anything meaningful
And 15% have no stats on them so picking weapons is guess and check
But yeah it's fun as hell
Read the OP, don't post the wrong info.
Also, don't the instructions say start a new game?
>Expression : Ran out of memory
This is all you need to know. Reduce your texture quality or use static lighting.
I could argue that Complete punishes you far less for getting hit than Misery but I just remembered I played Complete on Stalker difficulty, so my opinion is flawed. Good points.
No wonder nothing worked. Even removing the gamdata, ur mod, and running vanilla wont work because you actually didn't downgrade then. Read carefully
What the fuck is this
OH GOD WHAT THE FUCK JESUS H CHRIST HELP ME WHY
I'm already fucking running low on ammo and on the first floor good lord help me
>Please put /sg/ in the op so it can be easily found pretty please.
You could just search for stalker.
>Is anyone interested in a stream of AA 2.1 with muh bloody screen removed and the gorgeous gnomous scopes?
Sure, even though it's kinda a bit too vanilla.
Huh, I'm playing DMM:PE and I'm not noticing any difference with the Ukrainian localization that I included with it. They sound like the vanilla voices to me. Was it the Russian localization that I was thinking of that has the spooky mutant zombie voices?
>Get to X18
>try not to die
>die a lot
Also for some reason I can't throw my grenades or turn on my flashlight
Even though I have like 4 grenades and a flashlight
I just re-downloaded the Ukrainian voices and it seems that it doesn't include the voices for the mutant zombies, only the stalkers and zombified stalkers. Guess I'd have to take it from AMK: Arsenal Repo Edition if I really wanted them, which is where I originally heard it.
I see, thanks.
I haven't played SoC in 2.5 years or so and got the itch to play today.
Getting this error though. "Xr_ini.cpp" is what's cut off on the File line.
Should I just reinstall and play vanilla?
If I can get them working, I'll just upload a v1.03 of Preacher Edition. The voices I included with v1.02 seem to be the same as the vanilla ones, and I included the wrong user.ltx with it as well. And I'll change a setting so that traders don't have tons of items in their inventory when they die.
>uploading a new version without changing a lot of things
Just upload the new voices and user.ltx as some sort of hotfix with a warning that the user.ltx will reset controls and such if used.
It is stupid to up the version number if nothing was necessarily changed to warrant said version change.
I thought STALKER enemies weren't supposed to be bullet sponges? This guy took two shots from a shotgun point blank and didn't die. And yes i'm on Master difficulty.
Why is the Stalker modding community so autistic about version numbers ? You don't need to wait a year for a full version nor do you need to have a very important reason for every version change (what the fuck is up with the AA team on that matter?) .
It isn't exclusive to this community, a lot of people do not change the version number unless there is an important reason or a huge changelog. Changing the version number just for some audio files or a single .ltx is completely fucking stupid.
Actually it would be easier and less confusing to upload it like I said, as some sort of hotfix or something. There is literally no reason to change the version number if it does not do anything significant.
Also anyone else having huge problems with posting?

I forgot how fun the games are, especially STALKER's the only vidya series which actually manages to spook me whenever I play it. That uneasy feeling that never goes away when I'm playing is so damn good.
" Big patch coming up..
Patch will post by Friday evening."
Just wait a bit before starting a new game.
>Changing the version number just for some audio files or a single .ltx is completely fucking stupid.
Why ? I think the point is to make sure dumb people download the correct version.
Read the downgrading guide in the OP to fill in the needed registry values. Don't forget to change "Suggesting" to "Viewing" in the google doc.
Alternatively, you can download one of the standalones.
Alright STALKERS, I've got a bit of a problem, upon getting to Yanov, Topol's group is dead and a few other important group are just gone.... Is there a way to respawn them or am I fucked?
>Can't turn on flashlight
>Can't throw grenades
For what purpose
Rats completely uninterested in that enormous heap of free protein once end-of-life-event happens
So after playing Autumn Aurora for a while it seems to end up running out of memory to process commands and crashes.
This happened before when quicksaving so that must be the problem.
Anyone have any hints as to what I can do to fix this?
Should I just turn the settings down and lower the grass renderer?

Does anyone know why I get crazy shadows like in the bottom left of my pic?
Whenever I turn around, shadows drastically change, especially near the edges of the screen.
I have the starter pack installed, with every at full settings.
Just figured that out as you replied, really helps out. Thanks anyway though.
I'm on the fence if it's too dark or not now
>" Big patch coming up..
I had an eerily strong feeling that I've felt this very same deja vu before when I saw this.
Look at config\creatures\actor.ltx in your mod or extract it.

The interwebs say nothing, is it from a mod or something?
So I've played vanilla Clear Sky and Shadow of Chernobyl about four times each.
But when Pripyat came out I never got a chance to play it. So how I do continue with these games now? Do I ply pripyat or download some superior mods. I plan on spending a lot of time with the games again I guess
I've been in the same situation before. I recommend buying CoP and playing through with either shoker weapon mod or arsenal overhaul since they keep the game mostly vanilla with improved weapons and such.
After that I recommend misery even though most of /sg/ is bitter towards it.
CoP is great even without mods. It took everything CS introduced and improved upon them, and it's all on 3 entirely new maps that are much larger and open than anything in the previous two games.
>Stalker will never get MGS:V treatment
>no Xray v2.
So didn't someone put a mega link to a whole stalker game that had that soup mod installed? Last I played it I had a lot of problems and I think it was partly my fault and I'm lazy so thats why I'm asking.
>tfw you give up on finishing a mod playthrough
I'm done with AO+MSO, it seems I lose interest in every CoP mod as soon as I arrive in Yanov.
Maybe I'll try OLR 2.5 next, seems like it might be exciting.
I've given up on AO+MSO because my vision turns black whenever I go do the mission where you investigate the lost squad or whatever in Pripyat. It's not even black screen, my HUD's still there and I can walk around but I can't see shit.
Was having a lot of fun with it too
hi anon, I'm getting to feel like do some mods like before but OLR 2.5 was not my cup of tea. Tell me your suggestion.
I just did the breekiest thing I've ever done.

Now I'm chilling around a fire in the rain, waiting for morning to come.
I haven't played STALKER quite a while.
Should I play SoC or CoP? What mods should I use when I want a lot of weapons and realistic guns/gunplay?
not a mockup, although still a shitty static texture
upcoming NLC 7 feature - handheld gps you'll have to look at
CoP with Arsenal Overhaul. Download also includes optional Atmosfear 3 and Absolute nature 3, for better weather effects and nature. Install those too unless you're playing on a potato or something.
What's wrong with faction quests that tell a story. Why give missions that give a different amout of rep based on your leve? Why make rep RNG generic daily tier quests? Why have faction reputation instead of faction storyline?
So I just installed OLR2.5 and the audio seems a little fucky (e.g. when I sidestep I can hear my footsteps from only one side). Is this intended or is it being caused by something else like modified FoV? Also out of the options in the configurator only "full hardware" seems to work (as in, I don't get any sound at all with "new+dsound fixx (recommended)" or "based on sound car driver"). I do have a soundcard.
Has anyone experienced the same?
yeah I really want to read a wall of text each time I mouse over a weapon, redux is misery tier.
> western modders
That's why I only ever use FoV 75 and nothing higher. Whenever I go higher, I can't stop noticing the weapon clipping and also standing anywhere near a wall makes you look through it.
>Some weapons dont even show the fucking history or ammo type used
>Go full autistic
Is thanatos touch better to see the AI that can see through the bushes in Classic?
Fuck you. I love reading about each firearm's history, stats etc. Adds to personality.
>Shoker seems higher quality to me and also supports atmosfear and AN.
So does AO ?
And Shoker is the only engine modifying mod I've seen that requires all that extra hassle. Is it even using the source at all ?
If you're using AA2 copy the Absolute Nature green files
If you want to shorten the grass then go into levels/build_details.dds
Scale the grass boxes down.
Or you could use winter
Yup, I agree. Which is why in v2.0, we're cutting the inventory descriptions down to a more readable size, and putting the wall of text into the PDA encyclopedia so you've got something to read while you wait out the emissions.
Absolute Nature Lite works just fine.
I hadn't installed Structure but it should work as it's just textures and is not modifying anything.
As for the rest, weren't those ShoC mods ? They might work but I wouldn't bother.
Ah I see it was a leak. I thought the Stalker team were just being cool and released it. Still at least this means we can continue Stalkan until the end of time, rather than when a newer version of Windows eventually breaks it like most games.
are there any mods other than Lost Alpha that modifies the engine?
>are there any mods other than Lost Alpha that modifies the engine?
You realize one has already been mentioned in this reply chain, right. Russians have been putting out modified bins for years.
Latest OGSE, AO 2.4 used to, I think Stalkersoup does a few things as well.
There's also OLR 2.5 (and "soon" 3).
In the soon category there's also CoC, Redux, Gunslinger and a few others I'm forgetting
