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!

Well, let STALKER 2 be a monument to the GSC Game World if it is released, as every Stalker will miss them.

About soundtrack... On old 1935 Cordon were ambient tracks from SoC's Garbage and Radar and those tracks are awesome... You will place ambient tracks to levels according to your vision or you will use some stuff from old builds? (Or will you use both those 2 ways?)
Just OST means very much to me - i can say about every SoC ambient track on which level it is (except unusual levels like ChNPP2 or few night tracks which are on night in Darkvalley or Bar).
Hopefuly guy which was invited to write OST for LA will place music tracks on levels because he is good in music and he feel which track fits better to atmosphere.
P.S.: And i hear 18+ KHZ (it means i can hear very good, too good), so if in LA will be problems with music i'll recognize them in few minutes :D

Taken from Southern Comfort's FB page:

"Update - for now, about our own business.
1) One way or another, we will team up with Lost Alpha for mutual promotion - it seems the book and their mega-mod (which will be a completely new game, actually) are the last semi-official, GSC-approved S.T.A.L.K.E.R. products still standing.
2) Chris Howell is about finishing the soundtrack, inspired partly by the Zone itself, partly by "Southern Comfort".
3) "Consuelo Austral", the Spanish version of the book, is in the final stage of proofreading and I want to bring it out ASAP.

As to GSC and STALKER 2 - it's all depending on Grigorovich now and all we know for certain is that GSC is still trying to find a way forward."

I thought it was interesting.

Sorry to ask here but can any of you help me out? I'm looking for a mod that was made for SoC, basically just a concept mod,(I think it was made by someone from AMK) but it could change the texture of the players arms based on what armor you wore, like in CS and CoP. I can't find any links to it, any one know what I mean?

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…
