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.

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.

[TZP]LoNer1 Jan 16 2014 replied:

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 :)

UtterHopelessNoob Dec 8 2013 replied:

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.

I'm unsure where to post this question and thought I'd mention it here to other users.

Why has a finished mod like Faction fronts been archived so it is no longer available to the masses (who won't be able to find it) when there are mods on moddb that are un-released and untouched for several years.

Why delete a decent available mod?

Instead delete things like Taint and NLC which aren't showing any progress. not a mod that is ready to use and enjoyable,

If someone else got control of the mod and archived it, then I'll ask you.

Why was it archived?

Gettling Dec 3 2013 replied:

Well, i was asking myself the same question some time ago...

It seems like you can still download the FF mod from moddb (google it, or did this just change?), but i don't know if that will stop eventually as i don't know for how long it has been archived or what that even means if its still availalbe...

So, yeah, why archivie a good, finished mod, that is still beeing downloaded from time to time, while keeping some that look like they will never be finished?

Gettling Dec 3 2013 replied:

Mhm, looks like i was wrong, the one that is still available (even if its archived) is the one for SHOC, not CS...
The one for CS is only available on other mod sites, so maybe the devs deleted it, as their new project ("Clear Skies") is based on FF for CS, but i still dont get why it is gone...
