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.

Maybe he grabbed an unofficial repack, without logs, no one can help him.

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.

No need to use compatiblity mode, because the game will be slow as hell. Im playing on win10 x64, I have the game in program files, and it works fine.

that site never had any working link for LA. use moddb or the torrent listed here on the top. you can also try the free dl.oblivionlost.pl ftp.. this 3 source surely contains official release :)

We will set it to "normal" (with minimal hdr and minimal sky-whitening) by default in the release version, and we will try to create an official tweak guide and update the manual with that.

There were/are so many issues with copyright, even though LA remained a free, non commercial product, we always cared about such. Releasing licensed musics in packs are not really for us. Also, it would be hard to match people's preferences, everyone would want different tracks, and more and more. We would get lost in creating music addons :D I think its easier if you run a winamp in the background with your favorite music. The old music player on pda can be checked in some leaked LA builds dating back to 2010-12.

There are several unique npc-s in the zone, most of them were our donators/supporters, with their own name, bio, and equipment as they requested. They randomly pop up here-and-there.

its just my own preference, because i like it. anyone can change that in user.ltx or in console, there were several guides for that since the release :)

Don't worry, it won't work like a cheat. Even if you max the sharpshooter skill, that will only minimize the hand movement during aiming, and the misfire probability will be reduced as well. The same for the endurance, the max carry limit was set to 80kg, the and the default was reduced to 35, so people will definitely use it. However you won't be able to max all skills during the game, as the available skill points till the end of the game are around 20 at the moment (on the screen it was 100, but its only for testing purposes). On top of that, this feature, like the download will need a module to be bought from the traders... which means, if someone don't want to use it, they don't have to.

We kept the games for pc-s only. The music player had to go, because it was way too unconvenient to import files which the game would play. (converting, editing in sdk, converting again, importing... a casual player couldn't do that).

yes, it will need a deep testing, especially the new features we added since last year.

This was solved with either the 1st or the 2nd patch. How about installing the 3rd which would solve other problems too? You can also install the game outside of program files, if you dont have uac disabled.

try some native screen resolutions, probably not all of them are supported, but its just a wild guess.

install any of the 3 patches, preferably the 3rd (1.3003), which is the latest public one and contains fixes and other stuff.

There are some other stuff to be finished, and I don't think we can solve that 2 which still remained in the todo section (but hope dies last). And ofc, we need to fix the upgrades and weapon configs, because after moving the cop han d hud system, many stuff had to be changed. The guys are still adding some quests and alife to certain levels... which need to be tested once complete.

Hi. You mean the ones in the end of installing LA? Well, any game you install usually updates your direct-x, and other runtime libs, but most of them do that with silent-install. The visual c runtime libs are needed for the game engine to run, because its custom made. The xvid codec is not needed, if you will install the 3rd patch (1.3003) because we took out the avi files from the game (avi files were played in labs on the monitors etc, but we made ogg movies instead which the game engine also supports and does not need extra codecs). The openal driver is needed for the game audio, because it uses OpenAL and most of the players would like to use eax and other features, so it's needed.

There are some bugs, which arent listed, because they werent there previously. Also, the skills module is not an easy task, but all I can say, it will be fun, when its done! We will show how it looks soon :)

you hear that noise due to radiation. it was the same in all stalker games. we added radiation to many buildings, scrap vehicles, or anywhere, where we thought its realistic. there are several presets for this animaly, weak, average, strong, killing. Your device will alert even if radiation is weak, which means you can stand there for minutes before you get ill.

the spawn menu only works if you are already in game, and press esc to access main menu. If you havent loaded a save yet, or havent started new game, it wont work.

If youre really playing 1.3003, and not mixed it up with an old 1.30013, then you can access the spawn menus as written above (F2 and F3 in main menu, during game) (seeing that you had problems with borov's seif, it means youre definitely not playing with the latest patch)
