guys download the part 2 its updated.
I've been playing this mod for the last week and highly recommend it - see my previous comments for issues i encountered.
I've got loads of screens to post from Zaton, but think only the mod author can post them. PM me Dante if they would be useful?
As above, this is my first playthrough of Pripyat and this mod runs great. I had thought of the Complete mod but was put off by gameplay changes and bugs causing CTDs in later levels.
I plan to play Misery 2.0 after this but i recommend it to everyone looking to play Pripyat 'Vanilla' apart from the textures/graphics!
10/10 (despite my initial issues!)
Further to the above, i was getting persistent CTDs when first travelling from zaton -> yanov. Looking in the log file it was put down to "cant find wpn_ak74u_snag" - simply deleting the ak74 file in gamedata/configs.... fixed it.
My advice to anyone getting CTDs "Xray engine has stopped responding" - find the log file on your system - in Win 7 it was in Libraries. Find the fatal error bit at the bottom and post it here so we can try to solve it togeter :)
Installed CoP today (vanilla) loaded up - started game. Graphics sucked & changed eveything to max, still sucked so came looking for mods.
Loaded HD Part 1 (all folders) and changed user.ltx - ctd on startup.
Uninstalled CoP and started again without changing any vanilla settings nor starting a new game, dropped in mod gamedata only. Started no problems.
Long load time initially ~10-15 seconds for startup vids then 30-75 seconds before loading screen switches to photo/pic background (depending of Ssao level maybe?)
Now playing around with settings and contemplating part 2
Thought the above might help those with ctds.
Added user folder - no issues.
Added bin folder - ctd.
Added SweetFx & other main dir loose files - ctd.
Fresh install - gamedata & user folder - no issues.
Added Increased grass draw distance - 801m - massive slowdowns, swtiched to 201m version - ok.
All settings maxed, fps 60. Long load times as above remain.
Installed Part 2 - 5GB of textures - trying to reduced settings to run at present.
Part 2 is big....Couple of hours later and here's my findings:
DX10 works for me - DX11 results in many black lines everywhere.
SSAO /HDAO etc - heavy impact on the game's loading & fps.
The slider to change with Part 2 is the Texture details if you're getting CTDs.
Loading times are raised significantly with Part 2 - whereas it was about 1 minute to load, i'd now say its 2-3. However they are massive maps - and i only hope i'm not changing them all the time.
I've got it all maxed out apart from the Texture details (1 less), HBAO - as i'm nVidia and that's what was recommended - although i cant see much difference tbh between it an HDAO and i'm getting 50+ fps..
The game seems to load the entire map and keep it in memory as it is only the initial load that is long (2-3) mins - loading or quickloading thereafter takes seconds.
I will try to post a picture when i can.
Looking very nice,
If you have above 2gb vram then you can play on mid-high texture settings.
if you have sli-ed gpus with around 4 gb video then you can max the textures out.
CTD caused by out of memory by gpu.
Make sure you deleted shader cache and shaders folder.
use vanilla user.ltx and only gamedata folder if you dont need sweetfx
Can you confirm which user.ltx file is being used?
The one in the mod's user folder is not the same as the one in my C:\Libraries\Documents\S.T.A.L.K.E.R..... (Win 7) folder.
Edit... it's the one not in the main game folder.
