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...

Hello.
Is it a major difference between an enb and non enb version in terms of the visual appearance, colors for example?
I can't find any enb on/off picture comparison to see.

Major? Not. ENB is a little more saturated.
Try for yourself, it takes just couple of minutes to reinstall with different option.

My pc isn't much but it runs the non-enb version quite smooth. I was just wondering if I'm missing something without enb. Your answer is more than enough. Thank you.

FWIW, I would drop ENB. The game looks just as good without ENB in my opinion. In fact I like the non-ENB version slightly better, which has a more natural look IMO. I've never been a fan of exaggerated DoF effects either. I would however use the default SweetFX Configurator setting for the SweetFX SMAA and added texture detail at very low FPS cost.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about it. The Sweet FX option seems nice. I already downloaded the configurator but I don't know how it works exactly. I added the XR_3DA.exe to the game list in the program and after that two ''configurator'' tekst files appeared in the program's folder. I suppose that's it?

You choose game directory in Configurator, but make sure all SweetFx files are copied to the game's bin-subfolder too (not just the main directory of the game. I would also recommend RadeonPro for triple buffered vsync, if you have a 60hz monitor.

Okay, I will make sure it's in both folders.
I use D3DOverrider for v-sync.

Thanks for all the help.

D3DOverrider doesn't work with SweetFX. Btw., if you want to play CoP, you have to start RadeonPro after starting CoP (ie. tabbing out of the game, and then launching RadeonPro). The hassle is very much worth it though! :)

Oh crap, you're right. I didn't notice it in CoP because my pc is too weak at the moment to run it on more than 30fps on average, so I didn't see the image tearing. But after turning on Fraps and seeing the fps go over 100 in the menu, I knew it's not okay.
Fortunately RadeonPro solved it, as you said.

For SoC I have applied the v-sync patch not a while ago and it runs without exceeding 60fps. However, in Cop the XR.render files, which the patch fixes, are modified by Atmosfear and the v-sync hasn't worked because of that until now.

Again, thanks for your help :D

I've been playing since AA2 first release and love the mod very much. 10/10 imo.

I've reverted a couple things back to AA2 style but I really miss the 'HUMAN HAND' menu cursor!! :)

Thought it was in 'gamedata/textures/ui' but I don't know which one it is and I tried several with no luck. Any ideas which file it is?
Thank you!!!!!!!

Anyway, gamedata/textures/ui/ui_ani_cursor_01.dds to _08

I get an ACCESS_VIOLATION error when I try to run the game every time. Running in compatibility mode does't work. I'm running Windows 8.1

I had to reinstall Windows 7, as Win 8.1 doesn't work well with STALKER and certain other older games. IMO SweetFX is a must, as you get very good antialiasing at minimal framerate cost. The added sharpening and slight contrast increase (default Configurator preset) also work very well with STALKER games, which have a slightly muted colour pallette. Also use RadeonPro for triple buffered vsync, if you have a 60hz monitor. Huge difference!

ENB and SweetFX tend to cause problems on W8.1. Install non-enb version and delete d3d9.dll from game dir and 'bin' dir.

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…
