Time to start the wandering, stalker...

Autumn Aurora 2 has been released!



The second version of the Autumn Aurora brings the autumnal atmosphere to the Zone and totally overhauls the graphics, sound and gameplay of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl. The mod is built on the newest Zone Reclamation Project's core, it contains official AtmosFear for ShoC which has never been released before. AtmosFear has been extensively redesigned to match the autumn style.
It also holds an official new Absolute Nature for ShoC (never released as standalone as well) with new tree models from AN3 CoP and some new ones.

It is the perfect opportunity for every S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fan to immerse again into Chernobyl universe in completely different style this time.

The Zone calls again...

Hi CrommCruac - I have a wierd issue with the setup.exe. The text in the setup dialog is compressed and I can't really see what options I'm selecting. This is the only .exe that I am seeing this happen. No other programs, games, windows etc. have this compressed text, and the scroll buttons don't work so I can't really see anything besides whats on the screen in the screenshots below.

Here's some screens: Imgur.com

Any idea what's causing this? I've tried just about every resolution between 800x600 to 3840x2160 in windows (including native), tried changing desktop display settings > size of text in apps to 100% - 300%, compatability mode, disable DPI scaling, etc and still the text is smooshed together. It's only this .exe that this happens... so strange. I'm using Win10 64... not sure if that's maybe why?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Frankly, never seen that before.
It may be related to the desktop font size. I don't have Win10 but on Win7 it's set there:
Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display
Make sure it's 100%, not bigger.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah I tried that in Win10 thats what 'display settings' > change size of text in apps' does. But regardless of the value between 50%-300% it's still compressed.

Edit: I fixed it by booting into safe mode and installing, then rebooting as normal.

So it had to be something installed in your system that caused it. Anyway, glad you sorted it out and you can enjoy (I hope) our little mod

Any chance to do it on my own? I'm not an expert modder, but I would like to improve the game as much as I can. Hand textures is quite important to the immersion of the game I think.

First things first, great mod, one of the finest mods available to this game, second thing, I'm trying to replay this mod on another pc, but everytime I put full dynamic light on the options my game crashes on restart everytime, I have selected the R2 ENB option, checked if everything was installed correctly but it still crashes, what to do?

I'm pretty sure that something interferes with ENB wrapper. It tends to have compatibility issues on Windows 8 or 10. Try to install non-ENB version.
Also make sure you've disabled Steam overlay.

Stunning graphics and game design, the autumn environments look crisp and natural. A fantastic mod for Shoc that succesfully introduces an alternative art direction...

While it's a great idea, there are many many flaws that make it a Misery (AKA unfun mod)for SoC. 1) The Grenade Damage and Range, way too high and ridiculous, IRL I could throw a grenade into a room, and stand to the side of the door, and survive with no injuries, in AA2, I can't be within 50m of it or I die. 2) The lack of visibility, yeah I get it "Muh immersion" but the bullshit that stems from being shot from places you can't see, even if you look directly at them, is ridiculous. The enemies…
