In 1986, the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at the Chernobyl power station. Soviet authorities established a 30km 'Exclusion Zone' around this nuclear wasteland, but in 2006 a second explosion rocked the stricken reactor, obliterating all living things and causing the Zone's boundaries to ripple outwards. From this epicenter came waves of mutated creatures, deadly radiation, and a strange, anomalous energy. The Zone was cordoned off by the military, who would shoot on sight anyone foolish enough to brave the horrors within.

It is now 2012 - man has ventured further and further into the heart of the Zone driven by reports of strange 'artifacts' imbued with anomalous energy. Mercenaries and bounty hunters compete to recover these artifacts, which command extortionate prices on the black market. Others seek to find the truth behind the Zone, while some merely revel in the desolate lawlessness of the place. Whatever their motivation, over time these individuals - Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killer, Explorers and Robbers - have become known as S.T.A.L.K.E.R.'s.

Although confirmation of what there working on has not been released and they've all but said the first game won't be a STALKER title there re-emergence can only be good news for the franchise's future.

GSC Game World, developers of STALKER, are back in business - PC Gamer

Hello, i need some advice on choosing a mod, that does a complete overhaul, someone recommended complete, but I tried it, made the game a bit to easy, others suggest Autumn Aurora , and AMK, LURK and ZoA. Need some advice please.

If you play Autumn Aurora 2 you'll never use another mod. It's the best looking mod and like the other person said it's pure enhancement. Which to me is a good thing cause it keeps the core gameplay but makes it look up to date.

Try ZoA or LURK, autumn Aurora it's almost pure graphical enhancement for my taste.

Hi guys, i really need some advice.
New to modding, but having followed all the tutorials to the letter, i still cannot get the mod pack 2013, or autumn aurora 2 to run with my version. I have tried them both seperatly only. Mod pack 2013 loads the menu but crashes when i select new game. Starts to load, get "fetching objects" then crash, with a bug report, xr3_da error. Have seen people with the same issue but cannot find a fix. Autumn aurora will not even load stalker. I can run a clean game, but whenever i add the mods, it wont load up. Changed the notebad value like im suopposes to, did a regedit so i could try both with version 1.0004. No Joy. PLEASE CAN ONE OF YOU MORE EXPERIENCED SAINTS HELP ME!!! thankyou xx

I had problems with AA2 too. For me the regedit wasn't enough.

If you dig around on here you should find '1.0006 to 1.0004 downgrader' files and a NoDVD replacement for the engine.

Do you use Steam? Stalker in Steam doesn't work with sweetfx (it's in the FAQ).

You need 1.0006 version only to run those mods. The startup error is most likely sweetfx. If you want sweetfx (which is not necessary imo) copy all sweetfx related files from bin folder to the main folder of stalker so that both folders have the sweetfx folder and files.

daca se tot fac atitea moduri si se doreste un joc realist de ce se mai da optiunea in joc la 4 grade de dificultate? Si n-ar fi mai bine sa se uneasca toti si sa faca un singur mod?

I just wonder why all mods requier patches.Why can't there be a mod for normal version(1.0 or whatever it was).Every time I install this game I have to patch it and then install these mods.
And every time I ask myself why isn't there a mod,like Autumn Aurora 2(which is so awesome congrats to Vanderer),compatible with 1.0?
But in the end this was worth patching the game...

Because in all honesty, STALKER V1.0000 is utter hell. It's really, really buggy and doesn't serve as a good modding platform. Take ZRP as an example, see what NatVac changed to fix the game up. Loads and loads of bugs have been fixed.

It is but I wonder why can't it be fixed for original version(v1.0000).
Sorry I'm not that good in English so I can't exactly explain what I want to say...I hope you understand.

Oh I know what you're trying to say. Well, that's because those changes were also made to the engine and that was updated. The engine update actually determines the patch number, not the gamefiles :)

Very, very few people have version 1.0 anymore; the most common method of getting the game nowadays is Steam, which used to give 1.0005 and now gives 1.0006.
