Clear Sky Complete is a part of the Complete mod collection, which is a series of modifications created by professional artists dedicated to enhancing the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games. The Complete mods focus on improving the original game’s graphics, sound, and atmosphere, while preserving its core elements. Built upon the success of STALKER Complete 2009 (which was downloaded well over 200,000 times), this entry in the Complete collection continues the tradition of aesthetically updating the game without changing the original story or gameplay. Fans can expect a polished and pure Zone experience designed around the most graphically demanding title of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R series - S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky.

I am releasing this application as I have found that it may help with crashing and performance issues just like"out of ram" with Stalker-CS, particularly when using the larger MOD some like the complete,Faction Fronts,Reloaded and so on .The utility was originally programmed and released by MadBoris, for the game Supreme Commander. I just have simply tweaked the program to work with Stalker-CS(for all versions). It is a good practice to specify large-address-aware for 32-bit applications (such as Stalker-CS), by using the linker flag /LARGEADDRESSAWARE, *even if the application is not intended for a 64-bit platform*, because of the advantages that are gained at no cost. (Info From Microsoft) That is what this utility does; it adds makes Stalker-CS 'large-address-aware'. However. you also need to enable the '3gb switch' (except in Vista or win7 64 bit).

Background info: Regardless of the amount of physical memory in your system, Windows uses a virtual address space of 4 GB, with 2 GB allocated to user-mode processes (for example, applications) and 2 GB allocated to kernel-mode processes (for example, the operating system and kernel-mode drivers). On systems that have 1 GB or more of physical memory, these two startup switches (see below), can be used to allocate more memory to applications (3 GB) and less memory to the operating system (1 GB). This additional virtual address space helps reduce the amount of memory fragmentation in the virtual address space of the Exchange information store process.

Credits: The genius of MadBoris, for programming this utility.

Me, just for tweaking it for use with Stalker-CS!

Thanks for uploading this. I've just come back to Stalker-CS on a 64bit system and I'm sure this is going help make best use of mods like Clear Sky Complete.

Any plans to make a utility for Stalker-SOC or Stalker-COP

Thanks for the link, I'll grab those as I work my way through the series (again). How about Fallout 3 or New Vegas? Are there similar applications for those games?

Stalker-CS (xrEngine.exe) already has the IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE bit set in the image header; this "Stalker-clear sky 3GB RAM for all versions" mod is just as pointless as your SOC mod, sorry.

I noticed you put this up for all three versions now, Why? When it first appeared for Cop I went and asked on the gsc forum about it and all three games are already large address aware Starting from patch 1.004 for Shoc and on. So the only part of this that might be of use is the hardware part for 32 bit systems.The changes made for the games are pointless.They change nothing.

You can also apply this change, or view/change the file headers for any file for that matter- with CFF explorer. I think it's easier... plus it's a free app.

My xrengine.exe already had > 2gb addressing enabled(default i think) - so this download didn't do anything.
