Easy .exe automatic installer, compatible with XP, Vista, Windows 7, 32 and 64 bit. Works with Steam.

Version 1.4.4

This installer will install the entire mod compilation, enable gamedata folder support in the fsgame.ltx file, and make various changes in your user.ltx file. In short, it automates the core installation steps you would normally have to do manually. However, it will reset your in-game settings to their default values.


  • Retail DVD versions of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl game with 1.0005 (or 1.0006) patch
  • Direct2Drive digital copy with Digital Distribution 1.0005 patch
  • Steam (launch & exit the game at least once, check for version 1.0005 and install the mod, start a new game after)

Make sure to patch the game before installing a mod, otherwise you will see a black screen on startup. To check if your game is patched, see lower left corner of the main menu screen, it should say ver. 1.0005 (or 1.0006). If nothing is there, that means it's version 1.000. If you have a Steam version, wait for it to get updated automatically.

A special note for Vista/Windows 7 users:
It is recommended to run this installer as Administrator (right click the installer file and select 'Run as Administrator'). This is suggested due to issues with UAC and Rights Management, making it possible to have an incomplete installation and/or “leftovers” after uninstalling. Running this installer as Administrator avoids such issues.
It's also recommened to temporary disable Microsoft Security Essentials (this can be done under Settings inside the program), as it will try to unpack and scan the installer resulting in unresponsive system.

Starting a new game is required!
(giving up on your progress is hard but many agree restarting the game is worth the appreciation of the difference a modded game makes).

For languages: Czech, Hispanic, French, German, Italian, Polish and Russian, please download an International patch, otherwise your game won't start: Moddb.com

Hey art,

Great mod, but I've having trouble with your 1.4.4 executable file.

It basically crashes Windows Explorer every time I try to do something with it (whether its left or right click), even when I try to delete the file into Recycle Bin it just hangs Windows Explorer. Good thing there's that other manual install option.

I'm running Windows 7 Premium x64 btw.

Does anyone have an ETA on the release of the next update? I know this one only came out a few months ago, but I am itching to use some new weapons. Also I hope that the weapon realism and balance patch will be extended to all new weapons included in the next update.

I have installed STALKER: SOC with patch 1.0006 installed.
Also, I have installed STALKER Complete version 1.4.4.
Running an Intel i7 920 with Win 7 (64-bit).
ATI Radeon HD 5770, @ standard clocking, with Catalyst 10.4 latest version installed.

My issue is a freezing situation heading to Angroprom, from the Bandit attack at the rail road station, near the tunnel. I am leaving The Garbage, and before I can make it to the entrance for Angroprom, the game freezes.

I have run the game on 1 CPU, and this does not help. Is there anything else I can do?

Also, I love the way this mod sounds and looks! I went from shabby graphics, to awesome graphics. Thanks!

Can i change the scopes back to normal, having trouble seeing enemies through your version (by the way the scope thing is the ONLY thing that you guys did that i didn't like, every thing else is AMAZING, great job!). Also i cant access freeplay, i can jump to different parts to the story, but not freeroam after i finish the game.

Same problem as some of the others, I can´t save a game(it says it saved but when i want to load there is nothing to load) and i can´t leave the first map. WHat do I have to do to fix it. I had no other mods and i got the 1.005 patch just before i started to install your mod. I did start the game once before installing like ordered. Need another patch or what? Everything else seems to work, great graphix and noises are more realistic! Seems good, more so I would really like to play it aswell.

ArtistPavel, could you please improve npc & mutant textures? You've done an exellent work but the face textures have remained ugly. On an outdated game like Half-Life 2 they retextured the faces. And now they look real alive.

So i had Stalker SoC installed perfectly for Steam, then i installed the mod. Now whether the mod is installed or not i am not hearing any sound in game or even in the startup menu. The game looks great though all revamped and works fine, but just 0 sound.

Any fixes/suggestions would be appreciated as now neither stalker has sound!!!

cicchis0 Jun 21 2012 replied:

I had a similar problem (mine is not a Steam version) despite having the latest drivers for my Sound Blaster X-Fi and the latest versions of DirectX and OpenAl. I was able to fix it by forcing the program to use DirectSound instead of OpenAl using the "-dsound" command line switch. I got the idea from Koroush Ghazi's Tweak Guide (http://www.tweakguides.com/STALKER_6.html) and he explains how to implement command line switches on Page 9 of his guide (http://www.tweakguides.com/STALKER_9.html). It is worth checking out his site as there is a lot of good info there.

@ArtistPavel you have not answered the question about people that have 1.4.3 and why you have not just made a 1.4.3 to 1.4.4. patch or at least telling what changes have been made to 1.4.4. versus 1.4.3.

I have a fully working game with 1.4.3 I am not going to download over 700mb and install 1.4.4. without knowing the answers to the above.

PaulDolgov Aug 23 2010 replied:

1.4.4 contains patch + all new weapon skins and a few improved night sky textures from Clear Sky Complete, so technically if you are ok with weapon textures and night sky, you should be fine with, this is the patch itself (change-log is included): Paveldolgov.com

I've had a bad experience with users not knowing how to apply patches manually, so I ended up releasing full version instead, I apologize for the inconvenience.

I have a strange bug (not necessarily bad, but its annoying and confusing) that causes my ammo count in the HUD for any gun to be ballooned to an exaggerated amount that isn't what I have in my inventory. EX: I have 96 AK A.P rounds, I have out my Ak-74, and on the HUD it reads that I have 364 rounds of ammo, exluding my clip. Weird no?
Any advice?

this mod extremely slow mod ever designed..
I have a video card with 1gb of memory,4gb main system memory but still game runs too slow,takes long time to load or start new game than while playing game stocks on one spot and freezes..
Another slightest mistake weapons sucks more than in original,vss is nolonger capable to hit targets from one shot this is totaly retardet..
Who will make guns like this in reality??
VSS from one shot penetrate armour vest but in your mode to hit military or bandits takes whole 6 shots,so where is realism there??

I have been playing this mod and have noticed something, when i change armors it will keep the default hands and gloves? also when I auto-load a last save game sometimes it will show default leather jacket when the stalker armor is equipped. I will have to change the armor for it to show again 3rd person view.

I am running Stalker us version with patch 1.006 with 1.44 and realistic weapons mod.

Any ideas an what could be causing this?
