I think I should wait for an official press release to punch a hole in my wall and/or computer.
They mentioned on their twitter feed that they're done for. That's the second time my favorite game series got canceled and the devs went under (first time was with Turok, 1 and 2 were so awesome).

If it is true, then it is a proof of how consoles can bring things into ruin. No console version, little profit. If a company is unfortunate than it means too little profit. Only indie games can do PC only, because they are the result of projects that are "cheap" by design. Those projects don't require millions to get done.

If it is true, I'd like to see the Metro studio pick up the rights to continue developing.

Yeah, especially since their team has some of the developers from Shadow of Chernobyl if I'm not mistaken. GSC will give us an official update on Monday.

Just curious, what settings should I be able to play this game at?

I tried DX11 with medium settings and it did not like it one bit :O

Isn't there an option to check settings and it'll configure for you? if not turn them all to medium and just turn on high what you want to look good. If it still doesn't play right. Turn 1 of the high settings to medium at a time as you go through to see how it plays till you get it tweaked just right for you.

This is what I'm currently doing, sadly I have to exit to Windows each time I change something.

I suggest putting it on DirectX 10 with all maxed out. Works for my PC, so it should work for you too.

On a sidenote: I recently started replaying Shadow of Chernobyl (including the Complete mod) on "Stalker" difficulty (one step harder than the easiest difficulty level). If it weren't for those Snorks and Mercs I had upped it even a little more (FYI, Mercs hold extremely good positions in the first game).

Snorks drive me nuts... Making another round thru borderlands before BL2 this fall, but I think I'll hit this after July. Loaded up the Complete mod, but hadn't started back up because of Skyrim :)

Anyone looked at the MISERY mod for COP? I'm a big fan of the Complete mod series, but I'm downloading misery right now. Just finished COP with Complete about 2 months ago, but looking thru the descriptions and info on this are pulling me back in... looks tough...

I loved the stalker series, especially with the complete mod. Chernobyl was the best out of the three in my opinion. Misery mod looks interesting.

Dead Thread and all that, but if you're like me and own one or more of the Stalker line, you would hate to see those disks get lost or eaten. Worry no more!! Pop over to GOG Connect, and Reclaim your Games!! Not sure how long the option is available, but with torchlight, you've got about 3 days, so don't wait, Act Now!! You simply setup a GOG account (and come on: who here doesn't have a GOG account ??!!), login, and enter your license key. Then, the title you've entered shows up on your gaming shelf, and you can download to you heart's content :) Good hunting, Stalker!!

r2_steep_parallax_h, r2_steep_parallax_distance, r2_steep_parallax_samples, r2_steep_parallax_samples_min.
Tweaked fading from steep parallax to parallax(depends from r2_steep_parallax_distance)
- Multithread optimizations - loading time reduced dramatically (MT for c-form loading and texture loading)
- Temporary compromise for sun rays on r4 (Due to complicated code, we had to restrict r4 to only use sun_quality = ultra or maximum)
- Fast aproximate anti-aliasing (FXAA) added (r3, r4 only) (Thanks to MrSwartz)
- Backbuffer count option added (single, double or triplebuffering)

- New weapon params: rpm_semi (for separate semi fire rate control), rpm_no_disp (for AN-94), fire_direction_offset (for ballistics), shot_max_delay (for smoother semi-auto shooting), zoom_inertion_factor (camera sway multiplier)
- Buckshot spread is not affected by shooter's dispersion (PDM_*), only barrel dispersion (fire_dispersion_*)
- Fixed weapon param: condition_queue_shot_dec
- Ability to upgrade launch_speed for RPG-7 and RG-6 and rocket_class for RPG-7

- Fixed weapons with different set of upgrades installed being stacked together
- Fixed crash when an item does not have upgrades for every single slot in XML upgrade scheme
- Fixed task objective icons not disappearing sometimes after task/objective is completed
- Fixed broken randomness in mutant parts drops (when groups of mutants are spawned at the same time, i.e. on starting new game)
- Fixed bug in CAnimatorCamLerpEffector that caused all cam effectors to ignore factor parameter and always play at 100% amplitude
- Adjusted set_ammo_elapsed scripting function to work with ammo packs as well as weapons
- Added alternative XML-based way to define character supply spawns using extended spawn settings (like type of ammo in mag, etc.) and supply templates
- Stopped NPC's from deleting ammo packs on death (scripts should take care of this instead)
- Improved handling of physical impulse to ragdolls on death of creatures
- Prevented bullets from damaging the same object twice (as result, the whole damage balance needs to be adjusted)

- Rewritten logic for showing and hiding detector to make it more logical and work more like normal items
- Call of Pripyat helmets (engine work done)
- Allowed *.xdb* archives to be loaded from any folder, just like normal *.db* archives. Unlike normal archives, those are always read relative to the "gamedata" folder, so you can pack a mod, name it how you want and place in the convenient place (fsgame.ltx was also updated to add special "mods" folder that has higher priority than all normal archives, but lower than unpacked files - so you can modify the game as you expect to but still have the convenience of *.xdb packages).
- Added scripting function "alife():eek:bjects()" that allows to iterate (using simple for .. in loop) over all alife objects.
- Added scripting function "installed_scope_name" to get the section of currently installed scope.
- Partially fixed incorrect price calculation for half-empty ammo packs and non-empty weapons
- Added buy_item_condition_factor and discounts from CoP, show message explaining why item cannot be sold
- Added overloads for scripting functions "buy_supplies", "buy_condition", "sell_condition", "show_condition" that accept a Lua table instead of IniFile. This allows to dynamically customize prices and ability to trade items without changing the vanilla trading logic.
- Added overloads for "npc:buy_condition" and "npc:sell_condition" that accept boolean value and allow to change if items can be traded by default or not for this NPC (in vanilla, default behavior was to always allow trade, even when you forgot to add it in the price lists).
- Added parameters "buy_allowed" and "sell_allowed" into [trade] section of system.ltx, which allows to configure if items are allowed to be sold or bought when they are not in the price lists.
- Added new params for all items: "trade_ignore_condition", "condition_cost_koef", "condition_cost_curve" to tweak how item is traded in the game
- Added console command "reload_system_ltx" for better modding experience.
- Fixed console commands "run_string" and "run_script" to respect uppercase letters in code.

- Outfit info now shows real outfit params after all upgrades, instead of base values all the time
- Fixed item info not being updated in the upgrade window after installing upgrade

- Restored r2_sun_lumscale console variable without removing sun_lumscale from weather, now both values will be multiplied
- Restored r2_tonemap_middlegray limits to their original values [0.000, 2.000]
- Improved EffectorZoomInertion: better configuration, smooth movement between points, smooth fade-out after stopped zooming

- Fixed crash when using pda_skills or pda_downloads before PDA UI was initialized
- Fixed crash when using effect.finish script function
- Added optional outfit/helmet params to present bullet protection as a string (eg. armor class) instead of a number, due to complicated damage calculation for bullets that players can't easily understand

- Added param "inv_draw_behind" for addons to be drawn behind weapon icon (eg. when scope is attached on the left side)
- Added params "scope_force_icon", "silencer_force_icon", "grenade_launcher_force_icon" to weapons to force engine to draw addon icon when status is not 2
- Outfit info and actor protection info panels now show actual armor values from bones_koef_protection, instead of a fake "fire_wound_immunity"
- Replaced "range_min" with "range_curve" for torches for more realistic range changes
- Added console commands "quick_save_counter" and "max_quick_saves" to control quick-save indexing
