If you find that Black Road game start too challenging I have a simple fix for you to change it back to standard game start.

If you don't start the game like this your not worthy of playing at all in the first place.

This is what it means to be a true s.t.a.l.k.e.r. and I personaly can not wait to start my journey on the black road =D

I may not be worthy but Ill play it anyway! Misery adds enough challenge for me as is. While it's cool to have the option I will be passing on it.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is an acronym and to my knowledge an acronym usually consists of capital letters. I presume to are referring to Stalkers where S.T.A.L.K.E.R. means "Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers and Robbers."

But yea i agree with you/all of you. Will you choose the road less traveled by?

Please tell me there is more to each body than three bullets and a penny now, it will be ridiculously annoying if I finally kill those bandits with the knife and loot them, only to find they have six bullets, a broken pistol and three dollars between them.

This is better than before. Before you start with a specialist weapon that is supposed to be unique to the start and beneficial to use over any old junk you find. What really happens for me is I immediately store the expensive and unique weapon, pick up some old junk and trudge onward. By Yanov I already have primo equipment and at the time rounds become plentiful enough to use the original starting gun, it has long become worse than what I already use.

Three cheers for an improved start!

Well - thx for that of course but you got it a little wrong.

This idea would never work for vanilla economy and progression model as the only thing that it would change would be let's say first ~1h of gameplay before you're able to get on the old tracks again and start to earn money easly - soon after which entire economy gets quite pointless...

Here, it's the other way around: we've first rebuilt the entire economy from scratch and made it important and challenging factor all the way to the end of the game - and only after that we've figured out that 'hey, it would damn cool now to actually start bare-bones'.

I hope you understand what I am trying to say here...

Does this mean it will potentially be released soon? I mean, I know it's in its final stages, but should we expect 2.0 to be released within 6 months? I'm just curious because S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is one of my all time favorite game series, despite discovering it rather recently. Anyway, I'm rather impatient for 2.0 as I have major issues with 1.1 (Won't run on anything but static lighting and frequently has moments when it stops for a bit, and either resumes or faceplants causing load times to be longer than gameplay) though I believe it's my PC. Back on topic, I can't wait for this. I just hope the New Ordnance mod gets in there eventually.

Can we get an estimate? Thanksgiving(for the Americans)? Christmas? New Years? Not asking for a deadline or fixed date, (you guys do too much for me to ask that) but a "prolly 'round here-ish" guesstimate?

Maybe you ran into some sort of psy amomaly, and dropped everything in confusion.
Maybe a controller "psy-mugged" you for its own amusement (they are intelligent after all, not just animals).

The Zone does things to the mind...

Description

The updated MISERY 2.0 exe installer will provide you with a new option:
- Standard game start
- Alternate game start

The alternate game start (referred to as 'the Black Road') generates a more challenging setup which is now revealed here to some extend.

The differences that are displayed here are the only differences from your standard game start.

Credit and props to Cromm Cruac for the creation of a perfect exe installer for MISERY version 2.0.
