MDT hiring MISERY 2.1.1 STALKER event April 26
Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Team update

STILL GOING STRONG
Marcin Trojanowski (aka trojanuch), lead gameplay and difficulty balancer for MISERY, now has a son!
This is great news (and perfect timing). With Marcin recently married and now a full fleshed parent one could think that MISERY will face a decrease in updates and patches. Think again!
MDT consists of a bunch of cool and talented modders and even Marcin is working on a cool update as we write this. Arsenal modder _xXxTWiST3DxXx_ has also re-joined MDT, after a hiatus, which is awesome. Rest assured that we have good things coming for you in a very near future.

Here's how we like to spend our weekends:

WILL THERE EVER BE A STALKER 2?
Yeah, that notorious license to make S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 ...
Let's begin by saying that it is honestly quite flattering that we get this huge amount of encouraging and supportive comments. Who wouldn't love to see a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, right?

Several people have asked us if there are any news regarding our interest in acquiring the license from GSC Game World to develop S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. While MDT would love to pursue this passionately and won't deny an honest interest in taking on such task, we simply lack the resources at this point. A commercial license for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise is not something that is simply acquired, not to mention that the brand copyright itself is enshrouded in blurry mist.
Some might claim that BitComposer would be able to give us such license, but even their ownership, and the extend of their copyright, is officially disputed.

While we have little doubt that MDT would be capable of taking on such task as developing a S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 it would require a great amount of resources and investments at this point, if we are to establish the production studio needed for it.

So, while we have a passive approach to the idea of pursuing a license to build the game, the idea itself is something that we will continue to dream about.

If and when new light is shared on the topic of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. copyright we would love to hear about it.

CURRENT STATUS OF MDT
As you probably know MDT has formed an actual company:
Misery Development Ltd (UK)
This company consists of core staff and lead developers from the MISERY mod development team.
This section of MDT is working full time on The Seed.
The remaining section is still spending countless hours on passionately updating and enhancing the MISERY mod in an attempt to polish and tweak the game as we promised you we would.
United we form a large, and international team of creatives.

The courage to actually take this step and form a company was conjured by the immense amount of support and encouragement in this thread. That whole thing sparked a hope in our ideas of constituting something even more solid. Thanks to everyone who placed a vote in that poll, injecting a hope in our passionate hearts.

SOCIAL MEDIA
We recently surpassed 3,000 likes on the MISERY Facebook page.
It is wonderful to feel and experience this amount of interest in our activities and we shall do our best to honor them. Feel free to track our progression on other media as well:

Where did your class used to spawn for black road? You don't pop out in the same place as the non-black road start. It's been a while, but I know I spawned at the waste processing plant before.

Quote:Switching to SSD's and later to a RAM Drive made the difference and now I enjoy the extra graphics features and 5 second reload times.

Damn, I've 16 GB RAM. I gonna need to repack game files (remove all default game ones which are replaced by Misery) and pack everything back to db archives to get everything in suitable volume :D
That would help with non SSD/RAMDISK computers too :D

You could have 12GB ram drive and still have 4GB for windows. I have all steam, game and save games with mod on ramdrive and use just over 10GB. The difference is night and day. I really hate waiting for games to load a save, etc. I have a ridiculous amount of ram, and didn't want to just wear down an SSD with constant save game rewrites. It's not for everybody, but it's actually cheaper than buying a bigger SSD to hold everything and it's several notches faster than a SSD too.

You should also make some small bat file to copy latest savegames from RAM drive to HDD in case of emergency.

Some old DOS tricks can work on Windows too :)

I make a backup of entire ramdrive image every time I complete several quests or whenever I am going to take a break. It takes about 10 minutes to duplicate the whole 16GB drive which has 10GB of data. AMD Ramdrive software has a simple button to push and a confirm button to overwrite.

That's why I suggested bat files, you only need saved games from RAM drive not whole image. It will take far less time then backing up whole image. Installed game with mod is around 9 GB while save game file is 1-2 MB max. Depending on how many saved game points you have, backup should only take around 2 minutes.

Send me PM or e-mail if you need such things.

Survivor horror at it's finest, although slightly flawed. Once all the kinks are ironed out, this will be the definite Stalker: Call Of Pripyat mod.

Lowest Rated (124 agree) 3/10

With the intention of being realistic, it ends up feeling like its "overly" realistic, while some aspects make sense, others do not. The idea that a trained military sniper gets too tired to even move after WALKING about 100 yards, only carrying 10 pounds of equipment, seems silly to me. A normal person might get tired, but military personnel are trained to run for miles with much heavier equipment. The ai could still use work, their detection system is most certainly unrealistic and can be very…

@luizpsc MISERY isn't heavy on the system because of the visuals, but because of the new scripting routines. Light = less features, sadly :(
