Yes, youll have to, but you will easily finish LA till the DC comes out. Changes log is always on the same link: Dezowave.com

Not all light sources should have light in LA. I added non working lamps to many places, no need to make a full light-show on a 20-30yr old abandoned place.

unfortunately

Back in 2008-9, the ai compiler made the game to crash on level load, if we used hanging lamp r2 option on lights, so I recreated lights on all la levels using r1 baked lights only. Later, in 2011 we got proper ai compilers, except for forest, prip ug, country, outskirts the levels were finished, and no one wanted to spend some weeks (or more) on recreating those thingies. So we kept that setup.

Anyway the task would be to spawn a hanging lamp in sdk to all light sources on all levels (maybe ca. 1k lamps or more on all 30 maps), and set proper position, bones, range, anim, ambient range etc. Still, we have no HR for that, unfortunately.

send us a savegame + log + dump file and more info (how to reproduce the crash, which version youre playing, if its modded or not etc)

Probably due to a modified user.ltx file? by default the r2_allow_r1_lights should be "on".

Have to disappoint you, but you are trying to unpack the setup files. Gamedata content is stored in separate *.db files after the game is installed. If you aren't new to modding, you can unpack those with the db unpackers (available since 2007).

I guess with the 3rd patch installed? Seems like you enabled r2_aa, which can cause such double vision, thus it was removed from the options. There are still many unused stuff in engine, which can be edited via user.ltx, so if you change something, its better to keep a backup, or just delete it, and the game will make another one.

Which is that little magic dwarf? Also, which version of LA are you playing? Is it official release, or a modded/repacked version? Did you edit the user.ltx to enable some hidden features?

Yes, we got it with NDA back in 2009. Thats how LA was born.

Hey, we need a new member (or more), who could give support to new users regarding to how to install the game + the patches. If you are calm, and have enough patience, let us know!

Probably, as we barely have the freetime to be able to work on it for the time being. Need to move on. We will also need new members if we want to resurrect the 2nd project we have been working on silently in the last 2 years as well.

Unfortunately I have no idea what that "serious la mods" is. Since LA is standalone, it will always crash for you, if you try to migrate it with SoC, or other stalker games. Also, if you have a corrupted download, or an unfinished install, that will also cause a crash while loading.

The storyline of LA is based on the main events of SoC, but its not exactly the same. Every scene and story related quest was re-dubbed. The rest remained as it was before. You should try it! :) (with the 3rd patch ofc)

Basically so-so, except for the levels, we aren't using anything from the other games, only SoC + remade old + own made ones. Also we aren't using anything from CS, only some features from CoP, like weapon upgrading, hud system, and renders (enhanced fdl, dx10, dx10.1, and dx11). Ah and everything is built on an old SoC 1.0007 unreleased patch source code which we used as a base for LA. Probably could have been better if we use CoP engine, but back then, we only had access to SoC engine.

It was ported from CoP, so it's the same featurewise. Actually, it's unfinished, and we might remove it later, or keep it in for testing purposes only.

Your game was installed incorrectly. After you download the 4 parts of LA 1.3000, you need to use 7z zip or the latest winrar, open the 1st archive, and press extract. It will extract all. After its done, install it, wait till the end (sometimes 10+ minutes), install all the 3rd party tools it offers. Then install the latest 1.3003, and you're ready to go.

Check the log file created. But it seems like you are low on ram, and youre using 32bit OS. In this case, as the level is too big for 32bit systems, you can still load the autosave file, which was generated when you entered that level. That should load fine.

It's not your pc, its the engine itself. Although it uses more cores during game (when its active) its not the same as if it would be full multicore supported game. We did everything we could, but if you compare the levels, the size, decoration and quality with the other stalker levels, you will probably see why its slower. Probably it would run faster on CoP engine, but we only had access to soc sources back in 2009, so we built LA on that. As we kept the old design plan on many levels (just remade objects to be more detailed -> more poly -> slower) we used all available optimization methods xray can handle, like HOM, and portals-sectors. Since most of the playable areas are flat, its hard to optimize, we did everything we could do. Also plz don't compare us to rockstar games :D (we feel honored) but we are beginners, and amateurs compared to these studios you listed. LA DC will run much better, if you would like to try, you can become one of our testers.

Currently, we are using those AN4 textures for the DC version. The tree models are still the same in AN4 as well, which we have since 2012 in LA.

LA is a standalone game, and it requires the base LA files (properly unpacked, and properly installed) + latest 1.3003 patch. If you have problems loading-saving, its because you failed to install the game properly. Try to redownload the files from official source, unpack the installer properly, and wait that 10-12 minutes till the game installs itself, in the end accept and install all the 3rd party tools it wants to install. Then install the 3rd patch over it and you are ready to go.

Can't say more what I already said some months ago. A few scenes were cut, others were tweaked, but they won't be entirely disabled. Majority likes them, we like them too. They in fact add a lot to the game, as they explain what happened in the labs before the accident, before the zone was created. We worked a lot on these, people can't even imagine how complicated was to create such scenes with this engine, and find proper voice actors (with proper equipment and proper tone + mastering) for the job. We are proud to our voice actors, because they did a real good job.

Cromm created a custom version of Atmosfear 3 for LA back in 2012. Since then LA has those skyboxes, weather cycles and tree meshes with hq textures.
