A group of stalkers, for the first time, reaches the very heart of the Zone-the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant-and triggers a cataclysm on the brink of a catastrophe. An immense blast of anomalous energy transforms the Zone: the once reliable and relatively safe roads are no longer so, the landscape is wiped clean by outbursts of anomalies, and previously unknown areas appear on the Zone map. Stalkers and expeditions perish or end up isolated within the lost territories.

Old Story | The very Anarchy Cell Winter in Clear Sky Hybrid

Time has built up between the last update I shared about this project, many things have changed and many things will keep up changing.

I have been making changes on the software, and it is now fully open for new possibilities. Although this tool was initially designed for S.T.A.L.K.E.R., I made recent changes in its core libraries to make it both attractive and flexible. What does this mean? Well, let me show you:

- New GUI

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Optimizer brand new GUI

The Optimizer will feature a brand new GUI, far more attractive than the previous interface. Each item will have its info box to let the user know what does each button do, things will be kept in the simplest way possible both to provide a harass-free experience and to keep the resources consumption to the minimum, while providing rich features and good-looking forms.

- Added flexibility

Optimizer console

While the main purpose of this tool was reducing the chances to get memory leaks and related CTDs with X-Ray Engine (S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games), I had another idea... a console to make this tool work for any process. With this full-flexible console, the tool will work for any process with three defined actions: DIRECT OPTIMIZATION, MONITORING, and TERMINATING. These integrated functions will allow the tool to optimize a process once, monitor a process and optimize it each interval of time, or force the termination of a process. BUT, as you may have noticed, this flexibility brings downsides. Many malicious users might use this tool to cause memory related malware like worms, or CPU hogging malware, and that is why I intend to keep the tool hard-coded.

What I mean is, while the tool will be able to assist ANY game in memory duties, I will NOT let the user access directly to the console to avoid issues. So if you want your favorite game in the next version's (not 1.0, but 2.0) list then just leave a comment with the name of the game or PM me about it and I will add it.

That said, I will include that from the next version (not 1.0, but 2.0) and on, the tool will be called "Memo Creeper" and will be fully flexible to support any process without issues.

List of new features -> S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Optimizer 1.0:

- Brand new interface.

- Internal code fully optimized

- Console based tasks for optimizing, monitoring or terminating processes

- Full integration with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Engine (X-Ray) (via scripting)

Coming features -> Memo Creeper 2.0:

- Multi-purpose optimizer, with support for variety of games/engines

- Memory leaks recognition for internally listed games

- Automatic detection and termination of hanged games

- MAYBE a restricted version of the console to allow the user use it on other processes (with restricted I mean locked for certain processes and cut off from certain aspects)

- Detection of virtual memory addressed by process (and automatic optimization, if possible)

- Memory lock for unstable engines (good ol' X-Ray cited again, but also others like Source...if you played Vampires - The Masquerade Bloodlines you'll understand what I'm talking 'bout)

Don't forget to leave your opinion in the comments, and feel free to speak any suggestions out loud, Stalkers.

Regards, YeiZoneX @ CreepDev -> a group led by giant rabbits and brown unicorns with no horns.

not sure if this is the right place to be asking, but I recently wanted to play Clear Sky, Ive only ever playeed SoC and wanted to see if Clear Sky was just as good. Problem is, theres nowhere near me that sells it and I dont want to order offline because htat would take forever. I dont want to get it off of Steam either because that means that mods wont be compatible. So my only option left is to torrent it and all that, I dont know much about torrenting, I managed to instal the game with Daemon Tools but I cant play because I dont have the CD. I know that there is a kind of file used to trick my disk drive into thinking that the CD is in there. Im pretty sure it an MDS file I need. The only problem is, I cant find one anywhere. Do any of you think you could link me to one? I ONLY want the mds file not a torrent of the game with the mds, because for some reason the torrent i used didnt come with one and I dont want to sit through another painfully long download.

what you need to look for is called: clear sky nodvd
it replaces xrcpu, xrpipe and xrengine so that the game runs without a disk check. always check anything you download for virus' kiddies.
I can't believe people don't know this ...

I don't know why people think that games sold on steam will not be compatible with mods. The version of the games you are getting through steam are exactly the same as retail except for the executable to start them. Which is only slightly changed and mods do not require this file to be the same regardless.

I suspect people who are inexperienced with torrents comes to websites like this for assistance, but at the same time want to avoid the awkwardness of having essentially stolen a game. If you notice, anytime someone posts a comment asking how to install a torrent on a non-torrent related site, they always have an explanation of why they got it from a torrent client and not a legit source.

DO NOT play SPARTAN mod if you don't want insane difficulties. It was hard enough for me until I got to the Red Forrest. It was there that I was attacked by what can only be described as "a thousand psy-dogs"...I literally COULD NOT MOVE, there was so many of these mutants attacking me at once! It may have been a bug, but I had to quit the mod and un-install it.
Hope this helps.

I kind of liked this prequal and the overall look was a improvement from the 1st SOC, but it wasn't spooky or scary enough.

Too bad the company is in the process of closing and moving the game properties over to their publisher. I hate to see any developer go out of business.

If it wasn't for missing locations from the first one it would be perfect.
