Don't get me wrong, just because I've never suffered from the CTD or the a like doesn't mean it never happened.

SoC v1.00 did have some issues - but none (for any of the titles) have been as bad as some other major titles . . . anyhow, by SoC v1.005/06 nearly everything had been fixed.

But, mark my words, CoP is extremelly stable - even before the two patches. The US version is supposed to already be update to v1.6.02 (the most recent RUS update). The devs have also pretty much stated that version will be final. There might possibly be a US patch, if there are issues with localization - but I doubt it, as no other localized version (read: non RUS) has had problems (that I know of).

When they started the game, I found a big glitch. It says a lone dude goes into the Zone with an assault rifle. You are that guy. So when I started, all I had was a Makarov, and 180 rifle ammo. I was pissed, as it never gave me my assault rifle!

I am also quite pissed that damaged weapons cannot be sold. I have to repair, then see if selling is worth it, and then revert to save if repairing then selling yields no cash.

Yeah I must admit that's an annoyance. On a positive note, I'm enjoying this game far more than I did Clear Sky.

clear skies was terribly buggy. 3 out of four times i played the game, i was late to getting somewhere to join a scripted fight, and they'd die. skip a few hours on when leaving the swamp, and the guide to let me out of the swap was one of the dead ones...

I never really had that many problems with Clear Sky. It was the first one i had alot of problems with pre 1.005. Those 2 where better though considering i cant even play this one.

I am enjoying the game just by running around doing missions, shooting random people, taking their guns, stashing guns all around the wasteland, upgrading weapons, betraying people, using a silenced pistol to "infiltrate" the enemies base. The game is very good.

Your screenshots dont do justice for the game! :D

Here are some screenies from a friend of mine with a healthy amount of AA.






EDIT: And unfortunately, the bandwidth does not do justice for me :D

When they started the game, I found a big glitch. It says a lone dude goes into the Zone with an assault rifle. You are that guy. So when I started, all I had was a Makarov, and 180 rifle ammo. I was pissed, as it never gave me my assault rifle!

That's odd - haven't gotten a copy of the NA version yet, but I'm planning to this weekend.

In the RUS version, you start the game with a Makharov and some ammo, plus an AK-74u, some meds and food, and a stalker suit . . . that'd be a little effed up if they changed the loadout . . .

And if they did, it simply means we modders will have to "fix" that :p


I am also quite pissed that damaged weapons cannot be sold. I have to repair, then see if selling is worth it, and then revert to save if repairing then selling yields no cash.

Yeah, it is a bit of an annoyance at first - but, from countless testing of the repair/trade system by myself and other players of the RUS version, we found that it's not cost effective to repair most weapons just to sell them. It's easier just to pass over worn out weapons, and keep only those in good shape - there's still more than enough available to make money.

If the condition bar is lower than two or three blocks, it won't sell.

game-play mechanic spoilers

Some weapons it's worth to repair, and then stash them for additional money later on - i.e. the NATO weapons (LR300, IL85, GP36, FN2000, SIG220) especially bring a high value.

Some pointers for making money - sell grenades! They're liteweight, you can find a ton of them, and they're worth a decent amount each. Sell un-needed meds and food/drink . . . healthkits fetch a decent price for their weight, too . . . and artifacts are always a good means to make money, and artifacts DO respawn in this game. Ammo is not cost effective to loot for sale, save it for your own use . . . ammo is generally one of the heavier inventory items, especially in large quantities, and the ammount you receive for ammo in trade does not make it worth your while to lug it around. Detectors are another good item to trade . . .

Sell your items to the right traders - food/drink should be sold to an NPC like Beard; meds and health related items should be sold to the medics (a medkit is worth more to one of the medics, than it is to a general trader); science items, like detectors and some meds should be sold back to the scientists (whenever possible) . . .

Other cost-saving ideas - upgrade only pre-upgraded weapons (when found). Although they're generally rare, it saves some money in the long run . . . same goes for armor suits . . .

I really wish the stalker games used higher resolution textures.

Some of the effects are really good but the shitty textures let it down.

some look 256x256 D:

I'm actually having difficulty finding graphics mods for Stalker XD

Know any dedicated sites?

Example of shitty textures


Left hand image is dx11 by the way, as you can see things are more rounded lol



I thought the first stalker game had been out for quite a while now, no mod sites for it yet?

not a clue - the games new, but all RPG games tend to get heavily modded sooner or later, graphics textures being popular.

Check out FileFront - good resource for ENG mods for the STALKER games

For visuals, look up the Clear Sky Graphics Pack by NMC (IIRC), it works perfectly fine with CoP. Actually, here: http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Graphics_Pack_Clear_Sky;95317

Cheers for the link and the tip, but looking at screen shots it doesn't look like any difference at all to me.

If your using it any chance of a non chopped up screen shot of something nice
?


*edit* downloading stalker complete 2009, not sure if its better but I could at-least see a difference in the screen shots : ]
