Hi, I've got a question, I loaded it all for dx10 and the screen goes black and it says not responding so I'm gonna try the dx9. I notice that your read me says to interchange just delete the shaders file, But what about the bin file changes and sweet fx etc that were added by DX10, There's no equivalent in your dx9 files so do they need removing too? If I start in DX9 there never added.

It may be something my end as i use a lot of mods like Reborn which may not fully uninstall so I've deleted the game and the folders left behind and I'll try again once the games back on the PC.

If you still had mods on the game after you placed in this mod's contents, then it may cause crashes and alike. So that would be best and if it still does not work, then I'll hand it to predator to solve it.

Hi david.m.e, I am not sure what would cause the black screen issue, it could be anything from drivers to lack of video memory. You can try commenting out some of the non essential texture folders, such as detail, crete, mtl, briks, floor, prop, roof, sign and wall. These can be found in gamedata/textures

What hardware setup are you running?

I just did a deletion of the game and the folders left behind in both the main Deep silver place and wgere the user ltx etc are. I did a fresh install of CS (retail), Patched it to 10 and did an exact read me set up for DX9 and I get the same shader issue. My hardware's a 3570k, 16gb of ram and a MSI 7950 boost.

End of log say's:

* Texture memory: 2741 M
* DDI-level: 9.0

Dammit. Clear Sky or any STALKER game never got a reduction in the Steam sale. Argh.

But I'm pretty sure even if they did place a sale on it, Metro:Last Light would still sell more.

Of course it would. It's a new game and a great one at that. Completely different gamplay to STALKER but with a similar atmosphere.

Anybody got a fix for the inventory icons being completely messed up? Most items either don't have an icon at all and are completely invisible in your inventory, or the icon is corrupted and using a partial icon of a different item. For example, I accidentally picked up a red barrel and instead of a pic of a red barrel it shows a pic of 3 artifacts stuck together.

Also, the shaders in the "Normal ( 9 & 8)" folder are completely borked and game will not load with them installed. Game will load without shaders at all or with using the "Extreme (DX10 Only)" shaders. As david.m.e said, you get an error about the dumb shader in the log file. Tried replacing just the dumb.ps and dumb.vs files with the ones from the DX10 folder, but that didn't work, still same error, so it's more than those files or something else entirely.

To be thorough in my report, I will include my install method.
The game is Steam version, fresh install.
Copied all files from "BASE" folder. I have loaded the config file settings.ltx as suggested.

Only using shaders from DX10 folder since DX9 and 8 doesn't work.

I have not bothered using any of the sweetfx and bin files stuff.

Yeah, it is a common bug that some people have been getting.
Even I'm "suffering" from it.
Unfortunately we do not have a way to fix it as of yet.
But we're all working hard on making sure that the bug will be wiped away.

When i try to start the game it says I dont meet the requirement of Pizel Shader v1.1
Does the normal game run on v1.1, because I can run it on high with no lag, so I find it hard to believe that this mod requires that much more power to run.

Hi Stwalpurgis, the DX9 and 8 shaders that are included don't seem to work right and give that popup error message, along with an entry about the "dumb shader" in the log file. My advice is delete the shaders folder and install the DX10 shaders or no shaders at all. Either way, should fix the problem. The game will of course look better with the shaders at a cost of performance. If your inventory icons are all messed up, try running the game with render set to Enhan. full dyn. lighting (DX10). It fixed that issue for me but I had to lower some settings to get a decent frame rate.

Apparently they work without a hitch. I had some problems with crashing at first, thought that they weren't compatible but apparently they work well enough to be played.

Hej!

I got two problems:

1. Even though i did "cfg_load settings" the light points on faces or in the cone of the flashlight are overly bright like a thousand suns - can can i decrease the amount of bloom/sun reflections on things?

2. Rather easy one: The UI seems to be bugged for me - like ammunition and such got no picture in the inventory.

And one last question - which Interface mod could be compatible speaking of the HUD etc.?

Thanks for your help! :)
