Thank you! Gonna give it a try.

*EDIT* Dumped Fraps for now, Bandicam seems way more stable and resource friendly.

Nothing. Nada :( Still just outright refuses to "see" what's in the CoC.exe window. Tried everything from resolution changing to window mode and so forth...

Hey there everyone and happy holidays! Can anybody else record the game via FRAPS? It just so happens, that when i turn both on (CoC and subsequently fraps) The fps counter doesn't show up, but the program will still record if i press the hotkey, albeit a black screen with sound only! No such problem in any other game. Ideas?

The sense of independent life itself is lost in that case. You're just playing in a world in which the life of it depends on your actions i.e. wooden and flat.

Yes, you can. But you have to open and exit through the passenger door, seeing as your aim can't reach the driver side door.

That's the reason i never went back to bar to buy one, i thought Veles didn't just give me that flash drive to be useless and then send me to download data - it MUST be just for that. But it's not. It does nothing. It's usable. But does nothing. How awesome *_*

What do i do at the computer at x-18? I understand i need to download some info, but the option is grey. Don't tell me i had to buy the flash drive barman was selling at the beginning of the game (which later dissapeared from his inventory)

open up the console (~) and type in: fov X, where x is the desired value.

You could try disabling grass shadows, gave me a 30 fps increase

Even big companies release impossibly buggy projects, with a serious budget and highly numbered professional coders. Just like vintar said: Lost Alpha is a game made by a bunch of students that worked in their free time. Which - i might add - were only supported by a generous donation at max, along with a community that kept demanding the project to release faster. Under the circumstances - LA is just wonderful.

Вылет связан со статическим освещением. Перейди на динамику и зайди в бар. При переходе на другую локацию - смени на статику (уже по желанию) Известная проблема, может решат патчем?

They're visible alright, it just seems they changed the concept from what we've grown used to know artifacts in ShoC - lying at every step. Here, i've only encountered about 4 artifacts from ~5 hours of gameplay but they also cost more. Less and more rewarding, i like that :P

The crash is due to static lighting, for some reason. Switch to FDL and try again. When you exit the area, switch back static lighting. Hopefully will be fixed in the patch :x

Check the option off. Exit the game and run again. Repeat. See if it got solved.

I've noticed that disabling actor legs doesn't remedy the problem immediately. Instead, try disabling them and restart the game a couple of times (checking that the option stays disabled) Only worked this way for me.

Any workaround for the garbage-bar level changer CTD? Or should i wait for a patch?

"POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT\" So can anybody tell me where do i find the flash drive at agroprom? I've found the book, but the flash drive seems to be missing, searched the whole undeground. I want to be sure it didn't spawn under textures and i'm looking for nothing ^^

It works on 32 bit systems as well, considering other user's input. Try taking the advises given in the upper left box on this page, it might help you a lot.

yep, check all the floors and make sure the site is clear, otherwise it won't trigger the next quest stage.

Damn. Got my first dead save game. Saved exactly near a patch of rats and just when i get hit by them, game crashes with some foot_bone error. When i try to load up the game crashes while precacheing resources with the same error. Bummer >_<. Anybody have a save near garbage?

Turn them on in the options. There should be a lit option "show actor shadow" Turn it off.

I can actually confirm the fact that dx10 flows very good with grass shadows turned off and the rest blasted up at max. Takes a bit away from the visuals, but nothing major. Gameplay is solid, visuals are fantastic and the audio effects are horrifying (in a good way ^_^). This IS the shadow of chernobyl i always expected. I'm happy that LA remains true to it's old school concept but at the same time - is very alike to ShoC, so you're immersed immediately and feel "at home" Thank you, dez0wave! Thank you for everything.

Okay. First bug encounter - can't hear footsteps. Bad performance on dx10 although running i7/780. As for the rest - perfect.

Yesterday we had less than 30.000 hits. Not sure about the record though :X

ETA 5 minutes for the "dream" game.

It almost seems unbelievable, compared to the 7 years development cycle. Surreal even.

Are you ready for another raid to the centre of the zone, Stalkers?
