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 :)

LOST ALPHA - DEVELOPER'S CUT


Hey, hey hey! We are here, as we promised a month ago. It was a long road up until now, but there is finally a sun shining over us brightly. After almost three years, we can finally present you Lost Alpha Developer's Cut. We decided to release it as a patch for now, but after some hotfixes, we will create a full release of Lost Alpha containing all patches and DC as well! The files will be uploaded soon, and they will need to be authorized by ModDB crew, so be patient, and in the end... Have Fun!
EMPTY LINE
Here is a little tutorial: After you download the DC patch, which is quite big (around 2.3gb packed) you need to unpack the zip file (with winrar or any archiving tool) to a clean directory, or to your desktop. But before you would do anything with those files, don't forget, that you need to have Lost Alpha patched up to the 3rd public patch (1.3003) first! If you don't have that installed, DC won't work at all. So if you have LA installed and patched up till 1.3003, run the DC patch installer and wait until it finishes. You can now run the game with the well known icon on your desktop. You will quickly notice the version number in bottom left corner, saying: "Lost Alpha ver. 1.4000 Developer's Cut". If you see that, then you are ready to play the game. Have fun, and if you have questions or something to report, send email to info@dezowave.com or post here on the chat window, and be patient, someone will surely respond.EMPTY LINE
Here is the final changes log of LA DC 1.4000: click here to open it!

Hi, I installed Developers Cut the other day and only get light/whitish skies in dynamic lighting (dx9,10,11).

If i change it to static i get detailed skies but the grass does not light up (with flashlight), or the grass does light up but I also get blinding sun rays.

Is there any solution to this, I remember hearing about similar issues in the past.

I am using windows 10 if that helps.

Thanks.

I found this and tried some of it for myself , just mess arround with those commands in console until you find something wich you like .

Just in case you mess it all up you can easy just delete the user.ltx wich is located in your Appdata folder inside your MainGame folder.

r2_tonemap_middlegray 0.50 - Fix overly bright sky r2_gloss_factor - messing with this one should fix overly dark/bright objects, haven't found perfect setting yet r2_sun_lumscale 0.8 - adjust sun r2_sun_lumscale_amb 0.8 - adjust sun r2_sun_lumscale_hemi 1 - adjust sun r2_ls_bloom_threshold 1 - adjust sun First try this, if one of these doesn't work that's ok. Just copy paste it into the console under ~. If it's too bright then adjust the middlegray setting, lowering it. If it's the other way around - raise it. For me about 0.15-0.20 is just right.

Grab this dll file and put it to LA's bins directory, with overwriting the other one: Dezowave.com

Do you have any plans on improving the gunplay? Eg. weapons doing more damage, Stalkers and Yourself dying faster/taking more damage from various source, aswell improvement to gun functions or adding some of the famous weapon mods?

I don't know about mods like that, check the addons menu, maybe someone made one already. But actually jumping higher is not necessary in LA, as we haven't hidden anything out of the level boundaries.

The bandit suit needed for the task can be bought in bar, or you can find one in the old x18 entrance, which should be marked on your map. Its north of the monolit base, and east of the bandit base in the woody area. You can access it via a muddy tunnel filled with corpses.

This mission is a little hard to get it right even if you're doing it right. There's a video showing the path you should walk, watch it and do exactly the same, you'll get it eventually
