Got a request: is it possible to mix the Dark Mode with the vanilla Misery every 3rd or 4th day its radiation free ?
I like the challenge in the Dark Mod but not the entire play of the game

with regards, miker8

don't get me wrong I like the challenge of the black road but hardly seeing the full splendor of the awesome textures is kind of dissapointing......

got a problem, my team together to go to Prypiat, I already have a scientific suit but that seems not to be a proper suit, Zulu keeps reminding me that.

problem is that there is no better suit that can be bought from the traders it a bug

quote-.You should be able to care of the dogs with at least Gonta surviving...-quote

you sound very tough, but I don't care for boasting, dealing with 10 dogs on your own while cornered\surrounded is imposible unless you cheat and changed ammo loading time and set hitpower on 1000+ !!, guess what, you can kill the dogs in one shot only when hitting in their head and in that givin situation thats almost impossible

on the other hand, if gettin rid of the dogs prior to the chimera hunt is the solution, I wil go for that

sorry, this mod is awesome in many ways but the Zaton Chimera Hunt is a fail, c'mon dev's 10 dogs ! attack the gamer , total chaos and while the dogs surround you the other hunters start shootin at you, there is no way out unless you run for the hills which makes the gamer a coward and the job is automaticaly a fail, you might aswell delete the whole scripted side quest cause the chimera disappears,
I'm sorry but I don't see the fun of it

burers in the jupiter plant, got a scientific suit which should
be more than good against psy-attacks, got an artifact with good
psy-protection, I use psy-protect meds, but when I'm in range
of the burers I'm dead within 4 seconds!!! cann't even use my

...last wednesday I was about to rant on this mod,
ctd's,bugs,error logs,misplaced textures/objects'
corrupt saves and loosing hours of gameplay ,was
realy fed up with the Mod ectr...

Then I read a post where someone suggested
to play Misery on a fresh install of CoP.
I'm a diehard stalker gamer so like a lot
of you I use all kinds of tweaks to enhance
the game/engine [bin,user.ltx,XrRender and a
lot more..] so I gave it a try.

Gues what, afther hours of playing I'm in Jupiter
and apart from some minor bugs the mod has no
errors or ctd's at all ! it plays like a dream

I'm not suggesting that the mod is free of errors
but maybe its good to reinstall the game and play
the mod on the fresh install.
It did the trick for me, Good luck

miker8 May 11 2013, 9:02am says: there news about fixing the weather bug? I stopped playing the mod cause its too dark and I realy like the gamplay in this mod.

In the beginning I had crashes because of the wrong SHOC version it needs v1.004,
next to that your bin file should be clean and if it all works than you could make changes into your bin. such as no_CD exe, FoV changing , grass Distance ectr...
Another thing that comes to my mind is that changing from a higher version to v1.004 doesn't garantee a clean bin, remember its an overwrite on existing files while files that don't belong in v1.004 stil remain in your bin

hope that made sense, anyway good luck

max weight is 35kg ,I'm in level garbage and found out that without any equipment the player has an unknown weight of 12.7kg! can you explain that or is he having 10kg boots?!

annoying bug : sometimes I cann't throw or equip a grenade and ai grenades don't explode at all.

realy good mod, gameplay handeling a little slow and too complicated but its like the real world, the invisible anomalies are frustrating ..for the rest until now, good gameplay but whats comming next...

don't know if its a bug but the changing of day and night doesn't work, at 12hr high noon the sun is still at the horizon and it remains dark

also noticed that ai thrown grenades have a long delay before they explode

[TZZP]LoNer1, I read somewhere that you got a high_end pc, I realy like your shaders/particles mods but they always give me some lag, would it be a good advice that you test and tweak your mods on a less high_end pc, or are you already doing that?

{TZP}LoNer1, sorry got too excited and mixed up the particles.xr files, thinking that I was using Build 1639, but it was Build_1509_-_SGM2.2, now I made the mistake , because I got a crash with Build_1509_-_SGM2.2 ,that made me think it was Build 1639, so plz forget my previous post,
Nevertheles, ur particle mods are still the best and I'm looking forward to ur future mods.

WOW, I'm using ur PPx³ Build 1639's [+le pack] in SGM 2.2, no its not entirely compatible with this mod, but when its not crashing these new particles are awesome they are an improvement over the Build_1509, which I thought to be the best but the Build 1639' are even better, I'm in love with it! it brings more and more atmosphere in stalker.

M8 ur a wizard, and was wondering if you could patch the compatability patches to the Build 1639 level, its a must have for us and I thank you for making such good mods. keep going

..yes I can confirm what nosnix64 says, before the patch 001b the mod worked , but now it crashes before the game launches, there is something wrong with the new patch.

.sry but already started with a new mod so I don't have the logs ,

For the DDOF and Motion Blur:

This is a 2 min job, go to your Gamedata\scripts folder. Locate these 2 files:

Remove this one: "shader_control.script\"

And remove a line in this one: "bind_stalker.script\" I need to delete the "shader_control.script\" file, then remove a 'line' in the "bind_stalker.script\" file ,what kind of a line is that?

Wow, have been playing this mod for a while and must agree with most of you that this is an awesome mod.

Sounds, awesome!, for the first time all the guns sound asif theyre fired right in front of you ! silencers included.

Graphics 10+, and thats not only for the ingame environment but also the detail in menu's and info on your mod site aswell,it oozes Quality .somehow have the feeling that in real life youre a professional artist or something related to that.

Difficulty Zaton is realy good! The only flaw I found was that I already could buy a THERMAL SCOPE, think it
should be traded only in Jupiter.

Difficulty in Jupiter...sry should be more difficult than Zaton, because the player already has good\upgraded equipement,
enough food\meds and supply, found myself scrounging and end up with extra 9 medkits in the first 15 minutes, don't
get me wrong I feel good with a lot medkits but the thrilling tension I had in Zaton is missing, the mod doesn't feel that
difficult anymore...

my suggestion would be :less stashes, less Trader content, NPC's harder to kill[ leaders should be masters],a bit
more mutants and maybe anomalies are more radioactive\dangerous in compare with Zaton.

Believe me, I played a lot of difficult mods but in Jupiter they all lacked to proceed the trilling tension of Zaton when
playing the early stages of the game, sofar the only difficult mod that kept that tension troughout the whole game was in my view
"Redux Clear Sky"

pls don't think I'm raiding your mod ,these are just suggestions in an attempt to perfect the mods difficulty, and lets face it.. you decide.
I repeat this mod is awesome and can be placed among the best it gives me realy great pleasure to play it.

THX for your hard work,talents and dedication

with regards miker8

[ btw would love to see new quests in a future add on ]

I realise that when we are talking about realism, then discussion would be endless.
when we are talking about difficulties for the wrong reasons then discussion is also endless,

Example: , when looting a fallin' soldier/enemy in Vietnam war you wil probably find a fare
amount of ammo and stuff but looting a corpse in the time of the gold diggers in America
it would be less plus it would probably be coroded and useles,
So playing a mod is also submitting yourself to the gameplay and difficulties the maker intended,
and I'm not talking about difficulties that are unplayable cos sofar there is always a solution in
this mod but you must be willing to look for that and if it means completely changing tactics, then
When I played this mod for the first time I thought this is insane!no medkits no ammo no decent
protection, W.T.F###k is this mod?!! Beacon youre a peace of #####...then I realised I had to
rethink my tactics/skills and pull myself out of the COMFORT ZONE I was then playin the vanilla game.

So if youre not willing to submit yourself to the mod then you have the choice to delete it and use
a mod that suits you, and believe me m8 there is nothing wrong with that, I do this all the time but
I'm not going to complain about it until I face a difficulty with no solution or crashes.
