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!

20 minutes is way too much, should be well under 1 minute IMO. Direct X 10 has a bit longer loading times than DX9 on my PC, try DX9 and some lower settings if it helps (esp textures). Also what is your PC setup? RAM etc? You running latest patch 1.3003? Any mods? What windows? Sry I cant help u too much right now :/ Maybe reinstall is worth a try too. Good luck

doubleclick the ammo in your inventory to place it on your belt, than reload the gun. (or right click the ammo and press "add to belt" or smthng like that)

Please help me out and point me to the fix for the CTD right at the end of the Agroprom stalkers vs military battle flyover view when arriving there first. Thank you very much. (I am running S.L.A.M. Pack v4.8 and already tried updating xvid, switching to static lighting, etc.).

There should be more enemies scattered across the map just like in Stalker SC. In Shadow Chernobyl Wild territory you fight bandit, merc and monsters. In Army warehouse there Merc, Freedom, Loner and Duty. And enemy repsawn when you come back to an area but in Lost Alpha, once you clear an area the place stayed empty. Which makes the game boring sometimes. I know Lost Alpha is still one of the best stalker mod but i think it can be improved more. There should be more enemies and quests, and improved AI like in Call of priptyat. I also can't see the reason why zombies and fracture were included as part of the monsters in the game. Also monsters should be made difficult to fight like in Call of Priptyat. Just compare burer or bloodsucker in call of priptyat to the ones in Lost Alpha.

They are planning on adding some more life to the zone If I got it right.

+ Try Oblivion Lost Remake when its released in english lang. Its not like LA but it has same atmosphere + there is much less people around. But you can get *** wacked by a pack of dogs :P. Once 20 wild dogs with a Pseudodog attacked me at Garbage location. That was a surprise.

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

Full Review Here - Pastebin.com 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…
