Lost Alpha is a new episode of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series made by dezowave group for free!
The most important question of them all:
Is the performance better?
for me, its the same good as before. I guess its very much hw dependant. We have revised presets, if people will use presets only, the game will surely run better. We also decided to remove the 8k shadowmap, the biggest now is 4k, which is extreme, the high is only 2.5k, which is more than enough imho.
I am only concerned if my 1080 could run it.. Max preset currently pumps out around 50ish FPS
I have gtx1060 (6gb ram variant) with i5, and 16gb ddr3, and I'm playing on max preset, with grass shadows off, and shadowmap on 2.5k. I get a pretty decent fps, maybe not 60, just 40, but for me its still nice, as with my previous rig I worked on LA with 15-20 fps on high, for years :D
This game is about single core perf, doesnt matter if you have GTX 10milions or not. I have GTX 970 and its enough to play it at 1600p 60fps, if your CPU can pump enough frames that is. My FX8300@4ghz can do 40-60 fps all the time with almost maxed settings within reasonable limits. Anyway.. thanks for update dez :))
