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!

I installed lost alpha last night and after i made some changes to the keys and graphics i had to restart the game for the changes to take effect. After that the game wouldn't load at all giving me an error every time.

Just found out in a youtube video i should not change any keys or i will get what exactly happened to me last night lol.
Back to redownloading and reinstalling to give it another try.

you should download at least the 1st, but the 3rd patch is highly recommended. The base game had this problem only. Still if you don't have admin rights on your pc, and have uac enabled you can try to install the game outside of program files.

How is it possible that Lost Alpha is stand alone? This is a mod, right?

MorbidSniper 7hours 8mins ago replied:

Yes and no , it is standalone , but a mod because it consists of parts of SoC , CS and CoP .This all with a twist by the devs .

You don't call Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat a mod either, even though it uses 60% of SoC materials and older unreleased ones.

Here the key word is, if it was made by the official developers, or by 'outsiders'. As LA was to be released as official addon, we got lots of contribution from official developers of the game, but we had no right to use any 3rd party mods in it, thus we don't have tons of wpns, or other features from mods, but after the circumstances have changed, GSC no longer focused on it, and it remained in the mod cathegory. The rest of the story is under NDA unfortunately.

Actually we learned that during the years, that calling something a mod is not a degrading word, even if the 6yrs of work moved it to an other level. It just shows the world, what modders can do, if they have deeper access to the game. And to sum it up, its a good thing, as many A+++ devs started as modders. Developing needs lots of experience, and modding is the best place to start with it.

I noticed long ago "strelok" to be a clever anagram of "stalker/stolker=strelok" and found it to be pretty cool. And for that reason alone i think strelok should be in every stalker game that is if stalker 2 ever gets made apart that he is an amazing character too.

I thought the stalker fans here should know that's why i made this post.

Actually strelok is the romanization of the Russian word cтрелок which translates to gunslinger. In earlier builds of the game, Strelok was actually named Gunslinger.

Should i play the lost alpha or wait for the DC?
If it's better to wait for the DC does anyone know how many more moths will it take to release?

you can try 1.3003, as it works fine, there are some mods for it as well, however I don't know how stable they are. The development of DC is slow, as even LA development was slow too, especially during summer, when most of our members are spending holidays with their family, friends etc. We hope to release DC this year, proably around xmas, but its not an official fixed date, as we cant not predict the future... however it would be a nice xmas gift.

Don't know where this top100 mods came from, but unless you ask for help, no one will help you. Seeing you have tons of crashes you either playing on a computer which is too outdated to run the game, or youre playing an older version, or not an official release, but a repack which we can not support as it wasnt made by us. As a developer of this game, I feel bad when I read such comments, because we can not help. If you want to play the game, send us some crash logs you got, and we can easily tell you what the problem is. Cheers :)

I second the "older version etc " option seeing i got this game to run on a P4D @ 3,2 Ghz ( so singlecore ) , 3 gig RAM ( 4 installed but WinXP only recognizes 3) and an ATI 3850 (AGP :P ) . Yes , the owner misses out on a lot of graphic eyecandy , fps isn't much but it does run !!

download sgm 2.2 English all one download atmosfear 3 merge atmosfear 3 bin folder w/ COP bin. Add SGM 2.2 gamedata folder to COP directory. Open fsgame.ltx file, change gamedata line from "false" to true, save and close. You should be good to go then.

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…
