    I posted that because you said:

    in response to:

    Where he says: In Russia Call of Pripyat plays you

    Which is a Russian Reversal. :toast:

    Here is with Full Dynamic lighting, runs at about 30 FPS, vs 100 without it!

    this is just one of those games that looks good in motion, and terrible in screenshots.

    Cross post them here. IMO the game looks bad, but is amazingly in depth.

    As with all STALKER games, mods are 'needed'.

    Ages ago there was talk of the next STALKER after (CoP) would use the new Crytek engine...

    .... it'd be fucking awesome, but it would also be a shame. I like the X-Ray engine for it's quirky bugs, the bland and bleak GFX just adds to the grey, 'orrible setting. If they could make it more optimised for multi-cored processors I'd be happy. The Affinity fix on the last page doesn't work for me and CoP.

    :(

    I wouldn't be too thrilled with it - but at least we could finally make an awesome winter mod :p




    I'll do it this way:

    This is what i was saying. Adding stuff to a very aged engine just makes it more buggy :shadedshu

    IMHO - I've found all the games to be very stable . . . it's the mods that tend to cause problems . . .

    Either way, CoP is the most stable STALKER game to date. I have yet to run into any CTD or bugs, and have heard very few people complain of issues (even on the RUS forums), and there's been two patches released (for the RUS ver) that have made the game even more stable.

    Honestly, CoP is the most stable PC game I've played in the last 10 years - and that says a lot about the effort such a small, underpaid, overlooked, foreign developer has put into this release.

    and I would say the issues they have had have not been as major as other AAA titles. The Fallout 3 memory leaks, or random CTDs, etc. The only problem I ever had with stalker 1 or 2 was the speed being screwed up by the multi-core cpu. maybe we just lucked out but the STALKER series has run great for me :)

    I've never had any major issues with any of the STALKER games, just the performance issue of Clear Sky that's it.
