If you haven’t played 2007’s most immersive and atmospheric shooter, or you’re back for replay, this mod is for you. This is the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. like you’ve never seen before, with updated graphics and added functionality that don’t change the original story or gameplay. The game hasn’t been changed beyond recognition, but rather enhanced while preserving the core elements that made it the unique experience it is.

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

Downloaded the .exe like a whim - in a mere 30 minutes - and then installed it and was able to play it right away. I have windows 7 64 bit and a steam version of the game.

I love stalker, played it through many times and was just looking for something that makes it different. Thank you again!
