This is a small, lightweight mod with one purpose: To fix the absolutely terrible, unreadable English text for AMK. I am in the process of going through all the AMK-specific dialogue and rewriting it, replacing the awful, barely translated broken English with something easily readable and (hopefully) entertaining. I'm no professional writer, but it's not hard to do a better job than what's already there, so hopefully playing with this mod will be a pleasurable experience.


  • Completely redone AMK text. The dialogue, various stories, quests, and PDA diary entries the mod adds to the game are now much more readable and grammatically correct.
  • Broken (missing) text now displays properly. The infamous "dialog_amk_##_recipt" conversation is fixed and now displays properly, as well as various PDA diary entries.
  • Compatibility with most, if not all, other AMK addons.

Installation and Compatibility

  • This mod should only be used with AMK 1.4, English version 2.0.94 FINAL.
  • It is fully compatible with the AMK for 1.0005 hotfix.
  • It should be compatible with most, if not all, graphical overhauls. STALKER Weather Overhaul, Absolute Nature/Structures, STALKER Shaders MAX, and the "AMK Complete" method of combining AMK with Complete 2009's textures, shaders, and meshes are all confirmed compatible and fully supported.
  • This mod is included in the "Zone of Alienation" adaptation of AMK.
  • This mod is 100% compatible with existing game saves, starting a new game is not required.
  • This mod is NOT compatible with the Narodnaya Soljanka ("People's Soup") mod, even though it contains AMK. A compatibility patch may be coming in the future.
  • This mod should generally be copied over last, after AMK and any patches have been installed. Otherwise the dialogue changes may be overwritten.
  • If you believe that a mod you downloaded or created is conflicting with this addon, please don't hesitate to contact me with the name of the mod and a working download link. Compatibility patches are easy to make, and I would be more than happy to add support for any mod that is not working properly with AMK Retranslated.

I just finished up work on version 0.3 of AMK Retranslated, and am currently waiting for Moddb to authorize the download link so you all can download it. Version 0.3 is a sizable improvement over v0.2 and a a huge improvement over v0.1, so I would recommend that everyone download this update. Version 0.3 will be the last content update between v0.1 and v1.0.

Starting tomorrow I'll be working on the remaining unfixed AMK text, and upon completing it I will be uploading version 1.0 of the mod. Version 1.0 will the first version of the mod to fulfill my original goals for the project: It will be an entirely comprehensive overhaul of AMK's English text and dialogue. After that full-time development of the mod will come to close, although I'll still be supporting the mod with bug fix patches. I also still have plans to make a Narodnaya Soljanka compatibility patch after v1.0 is released.

Again, I would like to thank everyone who downloaded this mod for your support and encouragement. The original promise of a completely overhauled English AMK is close to being fulfilled, and I'm extremely happy with the way the mod is turning out. Thanks again for reading, and good hunting, stalkers.

I haven't used Autumn Aurora so I can't say for sure, but looking at its moddb page it seems to be only a graphics/audio overhaul, so the two mods should be compatible. AMK Retranslated is compatible with any mod that does not alter the localization.lxt file located in gamedata\config, but is incompatible with any mod that does (unless you want to merge them manually).

Hey, just jumping in to say that your mod is a god-send, and that I hope you keep working on it since it makes AMK actually playable for me.

Thank you for your effort, can't wait for version 1.0!

I'm still working on it. With hindsight, saying that 1.0 would be released "soon after" 0.3 was a little unwise, I had forgotten how crazy this time of year can be. I haven't been able to work on it much recently because finals are soon, but I'll be able to start working heavily on it again in a few weeks. In the meantime, 0.3 works fine and has most of the text fixed, so I'm not in a rush to finish it at the expense of work or schoolwork.

I will give it a try. I liked AMK for what changes it made but terrible translation pushed me back. Is it true that 1-5 compatibility pacht disables NPC granades throwing? If so... i will love it. It kinda iritated me how i died by being blown up wy three granades thrown in a row.

that sounds more like a Clear Sky problem than AMK issue. I barely ever had a grenade thrown at me in AMK.
Also 1.0005 compatibility patch does NOT remove the grenadier script, you need to manually remove it if you use 1.0005 or Steam version.

1.0004 patch is recommended for AMK, as it´s much more stable and does not require any extra tweaks or patches that way.

I use AMK on the Steam version of SoC and I've never had problems with crashes or instability. Honestly I don't know where that perception comes from, although admittedly I might just be lucky. I use the compatibility patch, but have never needed to do any tweaking beyond that.

Regarding the grenades, AMK doesn't "remove" xrgrenade.script per say, but I'm pretty sure it disables it. I've had NPCs throw grenades at me in SoC before (I'm visualizing the grenade proximity indicator right now), but I don't think I've ever had one thrown at me in AMK. I don't know if that's a product of AMK itself or the compatibility patch.

Tried this up earlier today, the text is very fluent and easy to read. Excellent job!
Did spot couple not-yet-fixed dialogs as well, like the Duty's HQ guard, but I guess those don't really matter in the end.

To put it short: even this "0.1" is a big improvement!
