    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl is a great game, but the developers missed bugs in the initial version and had to rush out a patch. This patch did some good, and some bad, because one could not use the old saved games to carry on the adventures of "The Marked One". For all those people who feared to start all over again there is a solution, in form of a tool, on the horizon that will convert older saved games to make them playable with patched game versions. Though such a converter sounds very promising it remains to be seen if this converter applies for the initial version's saved games, or to already patched ones as details of this tool are really sparse.

    i hate games that do this

    i am glad i moved to console gaming because i would have been caught by this for sure and it would have pissed me off so much i probably would have stopped playing the game

    I havent played Stalker yet, but I have never had a problem with save games working with patched games. I did have problems with Star Wars Knight of the Old Republic II. That would crash at certain points and only a few workarounds existed. I got to one point late in the game ( I was into the game big time ) and the workaround wasnt fixing the problem. After 2 weeks and roughly 124 hours total, I got tired of trying to mess with it.

    Surely this isn't such a big deal. Either you've got close to the end of the SP game... in which case you don't need the patch, or, you are near the start... in which case restarting from the beginning isn't such a big deal... and you now know the map so can complete it much quicker... or PERHAPS PUT THE GAME ON NORMAL not NOOB difficulty level. LOL
