I don't see how this fits in lore wise, I just can't dig it, cool option though. If it does fit in, in any way, can someone explain to me?

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...

Will there be any way to obtain the specialist weapons later on? I rather liked the sniper...

This is optional, you can still start with all the specialist gear if you want. If you do start like this, i'm pretty sure you will still be able to find everything you will need, even the sniper. (In 1.1 i found a mosin nagant under a tree when playing assaulter.)

Is it also possible to change the time of day when you start, so choosing this option starts you in the middle of the night? That would be so scary, getting to the skadovsk would feel so relieving.

Slightly unrelated question, will the knife require repairs? In 1.1 it had a damage bar indicator, but it was always full.

Hi, I have a couple questions related to this feature:

- Can you still pick up free food/meds in Skadovsk?
- Do the changes in NPC-AI allow you to loot bodies of a group while some of their comrades are still alive? Vulturing guns from groups who are fighting is an easy way to get a gun and money(perhaps too easy). It would be cool if they started shooting at you for trying to loot their fallen comrades.
- Are the stash locations still the same as in the previous installment of misery?

I’m asking because I hope these issues get tackled. “Chorna Doroha” looks awesome and very challenging, but can be (relatively) easy overcome with what I stated above.

Anyways, cheers and thanks for creating this awesome mod!

Regarding your points:

1 & 3. All stashes and 'loose items' are recreated from scratch in a way which has a good chance of suprising all of you (in positive way).

2. Yes - body and item looting by NPCs is one of essential features of updated AI. Please expect skirmishes and fights to be fought over dead bodies with valuable loot in them.

However neutral enemies NPCs will not become hostile cause of 'stealing of their loot' attempt (maybe in future) - so you can loot any body as long as you're fast enough (and there is noone hostile around wanting to do the same). Note thou that NPCs are very efficient with 'cleaning' of bodies from loot - so you're rarely find anything to take on body which you haven't 'produced' yourself a minute ago.

I love how this mod is kinda going back to the roots of gaming. One where we had no checkpoints, no autoregen life and where you couldn't sprey and pray. hahaha

This is going to be so awesome, I am deffinitelly going to take up this challange. Have you moved around most of the secret stash locations from the original misery 1? If you havent, you should. I still remember some secrets. :P

I can't really explain my position well enough, so I'll just say that this kind of feature isn't for me, but a nice enough inclusion (and as always you've done nice work with the concept art and narrative to give it that 'Misery' look and feel).

Im looking forward to this this will be exactly how I imagine Stalker.
Also Im soooo glad you change whole economy. When I play 1.1 have to manualy triple upgrade prices and make 1/3 artifact selling prices, make slower movement nad use only not OP weapons to make it chalenging.
And I success I finnish game with 2700 RU :P

This is exactly what i want, a complete new challange and you will love the first weapon you will find, although it will be the shitties weapon in the game.

But I am afraid that some things from the specialist equipment cant be found or too late, so that you have found better things and don't use the new found specialist equipment.

Another question: What is meant with "No Andvantageous point of entry"?

I thought every class spawns at the same spot, or am I wrong?

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.
