Description

Easy .exe automatic installer, compatible with XP, Vista, Windows 7, 32 and 64 bit. Works with Steam.



Version 1.4.4

This installer will install the entire mod compilation, enable gamedata folder support in the fsgame.ltx file, and make various changes in your user.ltx file. In short, it automates the core installation steps you would normally have to do manually. However, it will reset your in-game settings to their default values.

Compatibility:

  • Retail DVD versions of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl game with 1.0005 (or 1.0006) patch
  • Direct2Drive digital copy with Digital Distribution 1.0005 patch
  • Steam (launch & exit the game at least once, check for version 1.0005 and install the mod, start a new game after)

Make sure to patch the game before installing a mod, otherwise you will see a black screen on startup. To check if your game is patched, see lower left corner of the main menu screen, it should say ver. 1.0005 (or 1.0006). If nothing is there, that means it's version 1.000. If you have a Steam version, wait for it to get updated automatically.

A special note for Vista/Windows 7 users:
It is recommended to run this installer as Administrator (right click the installer file and select 'Run as Administrator'). This is suggested due to issues with UAC and Rights Management, making it possible to have an incomplete installation and/or “leftovers” after uninstalling. Running this installer as Administrator avoids such issues.
It's also recommened to temporary disable Microsoft Security Essentials (this can be done under Settings inside the program), as it will try to unpack and scan the installer resulting in unresponsive system.

Starting a new game is required!
(giving up on your progress is hard but many agree restarting the game is worth the appreciation of the difference a modded game makes).

For languages: Czech, Hispanic, French, German, Italian, Polish and Russian, please download an International patch, otherwise your game won't start: Moddb.com

It only affects humans, animals will keep getting caught in anomalies, to disable you would have to go to gamedata\scripts\_z.script (with notepad), find the 5th line that says 'sanb_enabled = true' and change it to 'false'.

Great mod! Cannot thank you enough for all the hard work. One thing...the night vision is green, and extremely hard to see anything with at night, it also flickers allot. I really cannot use it much at all as the whole screen is washed out with green and white...Anything I can do to change this? Cheers! -Dudeman

Yes, the first night vision you get is like that, and then you get a better armor with the "elite" night vision, and appreciate the difference (same way in original game).

Sorry, scratch the above question. I experimented and got it to work. Only problem I'm having now is a strange one, I can't hear certain sound effects. For instance, I can't hear my gun fire or reload, although I can hear the enemies guns just fine. Also, I can't hear Sidorovich either. I imagine there are probably many more sounds I can't hear, but these are the ones I noticed after 5 minutes of play.

What do you suppose could be causing this? Thanks again Pavel, I'm a great admirer of your work.

Hey man, Nice Mod. I just ran the .exe and set it up properly, However when I run XR_3DA.exe (Or the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.) Shortcut, I end up with a error message that says "Cannot open 'fsgame.ltx', Check your working folder" I installed it correctly, did I miss anything? My S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Version is 1.0005 US and I bought the game from Wal-Mart so it was installed with a disc.

It's hard to tell from here, there are a few fixes for "Cannot open 'fsgame.ltx'" on Google.
Try running as admin if you are on Vista or 7.
If else fails, do you want to try manual install? It's the same, just requires placing files manually: Moddb.com

"Maybe change sample rate in properties (48000 Hz)"

I'll try it, but if this was the issue, wouldn't it prevent all the sound effects from being heard? As it is now, I can hear some sound effects, for instance the environment, or the sound of enemy gunfire. But I can't hear my own gun fire, or Sidorovich's voice. Is it possible the sample rate would be one rate for some sound effects, and a different rate for others?

Though to make installer work with Steam, you have to run the game once before installation. Otherwise you'll get 'can't detect file path' error.

Make sure to start a new game after installation.
