This is complete nonsense: If it is implemented properly and the game itself is optimised well, the difference in performance will be negligible. All versions should run smoothly, the Windows version very marginally better.

If Valve's experience in porting L4D2 to Linux is anything to go on, the OpenGL version might even run faster under Windows.

Interesting. Would it be possible to use this to swap out the songs in the game's radio? Wouldn't mind picking my own music for the game (I felt as though much of the official set-list was pretty weak).

This is interesting. I love how the whole team are putting their own individual mark on this; it's still STALKER, but conceptually, it's also its own thing, in terms of scale, depth, and (I feel) an artistry that wasn't present in the original. I've often heard Far Cry 2 referred to as "Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl, only not broken", which is a little unfair to both Far Cry 2 and STALKER, but yeah, what you're making here feels more like a Far Cry 2 than a STALKER: Redux, and that's cool.

Anyway, awesome work as always. Really excited to play this.

This is great: Helps to unify the feel of the game, since previously the clean edges and perspective actually took the player out of the action a little (in my opinion).

Hopefully this will have the added bonus of counteracting Blender automatically interpolating textures on IntelHD/Linux, haha.

Awesome. It works now, but a lot of the textures are distorted, or display at a very low resolution. It might be to do with my laptop (intel hd 4000) but I can't change the graphics options to check.

Great graphics for Source. Nice to see where the project has gone since the original source-mod. I guess this fills a niche for a game that's partway between CS and COD, but I don't know if it appeals to me personally.

Now that I think of it, wouldn't it make more sense to use the "!" to communicate a special, perhaps objective-related interaction?

If people are always going to be using the terminals for saving and stuff, then they'll already be aware they can interact with them, assuming it's explained the first time.

Maybe this feature could be used whenever you want to signify a special/important interaction, something that they should go and do immediately, rather than just letting them know that a terminal is interactive when they walk past it, since that might be a little redundant otherwise.

If I may, I'd like to reiterate somewhat more gently what the guys are saying. The game looks under-polished. As a developer I know that it takes a lot of time and effort to get everything to look nice, but that doesn't make it any less important, or necessary. In particular the various explosion, fire and muzzle-flash effects need some work.

Make the right thing or make the thing right.
