Got a LOST ALPHA Game problem?
Don't post it here or anywhere else on Facebook. Why? The ModDB and FB formats make posts descend to the bottom with each new one and your concerns can easily be lost. Too many pages and posts can make your problems disappear.
Where to go?
The GSC Forums LOST ALPHA section is designed to post Game problems and to provide answers. In addition the format makes it easy to find previous problems posted where you may not have to ask.

Have you ever dreamt about playing the old, forgotten S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ?

We were amazed by GSC's work when they released the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. screenshots in 2002. The old design, and atmosphere was stunning and we couldn't believe our eyes. Later in 2005 things has changed. They redesigned almost all old levels. Some of them became smaller, simpler (still nice, but different), and some levels were removed. After the release in 2007 we played the game a lot, and quickly noticed that some areas are missing. We opened forums, and talked countless nights about those for almost a year. Nowdays we could say, we have a full vision about GSC's old levels, due to the collected materials, videos and forgotten screenshots. We decided to remake those stunning areas, maybe they won't be the same, but we will try everything to make them look really nice, as we always wanted to see them. In early 2009, GSC released a build from 2004, which contained many old materials. We used some of the sdk objects for the level remakes, but adjusted (and bugfixed) them for our liking, also we didn't throw out our own levels. So expect to see our own Darkscape, Dead City, Rostok Factory and some more in Lost Alpha :)

Also need to say, Lost Alpha addon is not just about levels and levels. We will try to make a somewhat, but not fully restricted alife, and deliver a lot of new, never seen features, among with some old ones, which many people wanted to see for long. If you are interested in, check the Features menu for FAQ, Interview, Features List, and many more. Also do not forget to check the gallery, and the movies. All comments are welcome, also we are glad to see suggestions too, however at this stage those won't be considered.
Thanks for your understanding!

Finally, we would like to thank to the old Stalker Team this wonderful game. Without them, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. wouldn't be a "dream-game". Big respect to: Glory, Karma, Lex, Prof, Rainbow, Frodo, Dach, Koan, Mike, Jip, Jim, Jon, Yuriy, Terazoid, Tuz, Haron, Stohe, alexmx, chugai, Oles, Zmey, Iov, Sidorovich, CyLLlKA, dandy, Descruo, dima, Olga, LeSTAT, MadMax, Man0waR, Chapaev, Cy27-dw, Shyshkin, Narrator, Rolik, Atem, Yava, and many many more :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
from Dezowave

Christmas is knocking on our doors again, chestnuts roasting on open fires and Jack Frost nipping at our nose. Another year has passed by, which brought us many good things and some not so good. At this time of the year we all should celebrate and concentrate on all the good that happened to us in 2014! First of all, thanks to your votes, we are in the TOP100 again on MOTY Awards, there are still 3 days left, and then the finals will begin. We are pretty excited about the results, even though we weren't really advertising it, but a little news post can't hurt. We were the first for at least 4 months in a row, and in the top 5 for almost 6 months this year from April till September, which was amazing. We are really glad for the given support from you and the Moddb Staff! The launch wasn't smooth, Lost Alpha killed the moddb servers due to the heavy visits and downloads, and we even beat Black Mesa in downloads and view counts when Moddb Staff compared the statistics of the 'day of release' of these projects. It was unexpected, and we felt honored. Later things calmed down, and we think we are on a good path now to finish the game. Those who regularly visit our site already know of the changes through patches, etc... so if they -you- think we have earned it, to be in the top 5 again, we will be there! Everything depends on your choice.

And a little status update of the upcoming developers cut. Our programmers updated the audio/sound engine of the game, now you can select all your sound cards from the list, and eax finally works, mainly on sound blaster cards, even the integrated sound chipsets which supports eax 2.0 will benefit from the changes. They also started remaking the weapon upgrade system, this time based more on the system in Call of Pripyat. The game designers are filling the empty parts of the levels with more "life" as well. Currently, we are testing the 2nd edited level of the 10 we plan to change. It's a long sequence, since we need to test run the levels individually, and in story mode as well, to see how the triggers work. When these are finished, we will check the keypoints in the storyline, and try to make the duller parts a bit better without destroying the "jenga tower" :).

Christmas and New Years is coming, with greetings of peace and prosperity, the whole dezowave group wishes the very best for you during this special time. May You enjoy all the best now and throughout the coming year. 2015 will be a cool year, it's not a secret we are working on our next project as well, which will be announced in a few months!

If anyone could help me in the following matter, I would greatly appreciate.

Patch 1.0003 works great and makes my game much more stable than the original release.

But at the same time, the patch vipes my gamedata folder out, what is a problem, becouse I use to edit some settings to my taste (like actor.ltx etc.).

Does this mean, that I can not edit any of the ltx content of the game anyhow after installing patch 1.0003?

1.3003 is great, few bugs here & there but nothing gamebreaking. But everybody is awaiting the Developers Cut now, its being made since the 1.3003 basicaly, but nobody really knows when its being finished, my guess is at least 2 months from now... Im basicaly silently dying here, cant wait and I dont want to re-play 1.3003 before Dev cut, I know patience is the key... I repeat it to myself everyday.

I am very anxious to see the next patch.
I'm thinking here out, what will have in the next patch.
I look forward to walk again in the area, to find more mutants in maps, to have more npc's in the village of beginners, to see the modifications to the arms will be successfully made and look forward to seeing the dark night and find different mutants in the evening, eager to see new items, eager to see conrrigidos, eager errors to see new missions and sub-missions, eager to see the different missions PDA Stalkers (missions we can do for Stalkers), eager to see the sun rise in Lost Alpha , eager to pick a place at night, take a vodka by the fire and take a nap with my sleeping bag.
I am very eager to play Lost Alpha again, this beautiful work done by Dezowave, eager to can contribute some money to them: D.

Hey everyone, I am in real truble, I have found a crash in the game and no matter what I do I cant get it fixet but I have googled it and found someone who had the same problem and managed to fix it but the MODdb shows only his comment and I cant take a look at what is the reply what he had for his question so I could fix the problem myself. This is the guy his name is UnatcoTroop and this is what he wrote, and it's my problem as well.

I have a big problem, I am always have crash in the Dark Valley at the bandint base, after I take the document from Borovs safe then the game stops working and I get the following message everytime: Engine error. Last line in stack trace:
CDialogHolder::operator=()+2506537 byte(s) C:\Users\Sylar\Stalker Lost Alpha\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha\bins\xrGame.dll

Thank you for the answer in advance!

I would copy the link of the moddb profile page here but Moddb doesnt allow it, so maybe some could tell me how to find a reply for a comment because I am looking at his comments on his profile but those are only what he wrote and the solution is missing from the person who he was talking to.

Thanks for the help

Please send us a savegame + crash log so we can investigate. till then I'd suggest to reload an earlier save, or try to run far away from that base, looking to the darkscape level entrance direction. We are aware of this bug, but it happens rarely, and we would need a savegame to be able to debug it.

It's Lost Alpha. Should it be rated any less?

Full Review Here - This mod is a great example of what not to do when trying to recreate a game in your own image, due to it being worse than the SoC in almost every way. +Fantastic Map Design +Good Environments +Great Lighting +Textures better than vanilla +Upgrading System =Gunplay unchanged from Vanilla =Weapon textures + Models unchanged from Vanilla -Maps lack things to do in them -Sounds are subpar -Voice acting is bad and immersion breaking -Constant poorly animated…
