When I try to change the $game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\ to $game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\ it won't allow me to save it. How can I fix that?

That's a really odd error... Try maybe manually changing the specified keys from false to true. If it still doesn't work then I can upload an fsgame.ltx for you...

I have decided to complete the original game first, but know, when I try to open it, it crashes, much like it did when I tried to open up Faction Fronts

Two other possible explenations, you for some reason don't have admin rights over the file or the atribut ''read only'' is enabled in the file properties.

Can you specify what version of stalker you are using, and whether it is the steam, US or worldwide release?

Refer to this guide for reporting crashes.

Send the crash_log data that is copied to the clipboard to and I will see what can be done about this issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

What does changing the $game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\ to $game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\ matter?

If you don't change it any mods wont be loaded. Which means you will always play original Stalker w/o mods. But if you installed FF using installer and did not encounter any errors, then this change is made automatically. If you got error obut installer not being able to modify "fsgame.ltx" you have to do it manually but fir check if it does not have Read only attribute enabled.
