Hello
I seem to have quite a heavy problem.
I install the game, 1.0004 patch, do everything that has to be done.
Adjust the options.
Select new game, master, and start it.
But! The game gets stuck at prefetching, it just stands there for 5 minutes and then crashes.
No crash log is given.

I'm going to start posting crashes here with a short description of how they occurred. 
ZoA 1.07 on patch 1.0004 (Steam)
I shot a military stalker at the Cordon railway checkpoint after completing X18.  The game crashed after I hit in in the chest/back area.  The weapon was a silenced AK-74 M with a night vision scope.

ZoA 1.07 on patch 1.0004 (Steam)
Similar to the last crash I posted but in Wild Territory.  I shot at a merc and missed. The merc was fighting an electro-chimera which may have triggered the wound crash.

ZoA 1.07 on patch 1.0004 (Steam)
Yet another bad argument #2 to 'format'.  I was looting some bodies in Wild Territory.  I was pretty close to the weight limit but not over it.  AMKs 'too many items' message popped up when I tried to loot a rifle and a bunch of misc items fell on the ground out of my backpack.  When I tried to pick them up I was hit with 'too many items' message (I don't know the exact message since it's in Russian).  When I went to a nearby rucksack to deposit some items the game crashed when I put a rifle in the rucksack.

ZoA 1.07 on patch 1.0004 (Steam)
I put a 16 round magazine on my belt after looting the bandit stash in Cordon (the one in the attic of the Car Park).  I had just dropped some loose bullets and a 13 round magazine then attached the 16 round 9x19 caliber mag to my belt when the game crashed.

Reloading a 100 round drum with boxed regular 5.56x45 ammo during a blowout in the bar.  
- I reloaded and tried again.  The crash occurred a second time.  Boxed ammo, 100 round drum.  No blowout this time.

After refusing to join C-Consciousness this CTD occurred while loading the next level.  Here is a link to the save right before the crash http://www.sendspace.com/file/z5pqrd .  I cannot progress further in the game because of it.

When I try loading a single player game, it says Loading Server, but then proceeds to loading the save until it hits Client: Synchronizing, and then crashes.

I'm traveling southbound in the Cordon and I'm at the sawmill just south of the military checkpoint. When I start up my save the game runs fine for a few seconds, but after traveling a few feet the frame rate stutters for a second and crashes. Here's the error report.

 XR_3DA.exe caused ACCESS_VIOLATION in module "C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\bin\xrGame.dll" at 0023:05639454

I'm a few hours into the game and I've traveled in and out of this area plenty of times so it's strange that it just started happening now.

Another crash, whenever I enter Duty base, and it;'s under attack, the game crashes.

Again, to display all of my problems, this time in one post.
First, what is happening is that when i try loading a saved game, it tries connecting to a server, that doesn't even exist. After that, he starts loading the game, but the game crashes. No crashlog displayed.
After finally somehow (with luck) fixing that damn bug, he finally loads the game, but the game crashes after two minutes.
I reinstall the whole Zone of Alienation, and then it won't load any saves.
No crashlogs EVER get displayed,

Getting a crash whenever I click on the Mosin Nagant (I presume it's the Mosin because it looks like it, but I can never see its full name because I crash when I try to) when it's in an inventory. Happens both when just trying to look at the description and actually trying to equip it.

edit: this also seems to happen with the SKS type rifle

If you switch from Binoculars while zoomed in (using them) to your bolt the game will crash 100% of the time.

I am using ZoA 1.07.1 v5
First of all, here is the error: XR_3DA.exe caused ACCESS_VIOLATION in module "C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. -Shadow of Chernobyl\bin\XR_3DA.exe" at 0023:00452606, CKinematicsAnimated::PlayCycle()+38byte(s)

Sorry, I couldn't give you a proper error report. The fancy BugTrap crashes when I tell it to save the reason as to why the game crashed.
I noticed that the crash occurs when ever a stalker reloads a Obrez or Nagant. They will get stuck in the reload animation, causing the game to crash after a while. This has not happened in any of the previous versions of ZoA (for me).

Ctrl+V into notepad after it crashes, or open the log file in Documents/STALKER-SHOC/logs/

Jul 27 2013, 5:33pm Anchor

I loaded up a save that is trapped because of the error since there is a bandit or stalker nearby with a Obrez. Pasting only gave me "stack trace:". I did, however, find the log file, which seems to large to slap onto a post. The most recent thing relating to "stack trace:" on it is:

stack trace:

I couldn't find stuff about my previous error other than a "! Cannot find saved game ~~~ unknown_weapon_type_[wpn_obrez]_wpn_obrez18015 " I'm not sure of what I should specifically send from the log file, but I made a copy of both it and the save files.

I get a CTD the second I hand over the x-18 documents to barkeep. I've tried loading an older save, from the cordon, I've tried exiting and re-entering the bar. One of the times Gharik, hunter, brome and one more NPC became hostile. May be related that I joined freedom but then quickloaded. I don't get a crash log just a "stopped working" note.

Is your game version 1.0004? If it's anything else the game will crash when you accept a mission, so that could be it.

Ahh yes, forgive my double posting but i was very tired when i came up with the crash and didnt look trough the whole thread.I downgraded to 1.0004 and it works now...well...mostly it does. Now i get a crash if i try to talk to a stalker next to the train bridge in Cordon.As soon as i hit enter the game crashes.

Keep getting this error whenever I try to start a new game or load a save with the lastest Alpha version.

(From the Log)

FATAL ERROR [error]Expression    : fatal error[error]Function      : CScriptEngine::lua_error[error]File          : E:\stalker\sources\trunk\xr_3da\xrGame\script_engine.cpp[error]Line          : 73[error]Description   : [error]Arguments     : LUA error: ...alker shadow of chernobyl\gamedata\scripts\_g.script:1367: attempt to index global 'amk' (a nil value) 

Okay I figured out why my game was crashing I hadn't installed all of the ZOA mod and it was messing it up, but once I had installed all of it I still CTDed whenever I talked to people in game. I figured out that this was because of my game was at the wrong version so I downgraded to 1.0004, but once I had done that my game still didn't work and crashed as soon as the intro splashes finished.

Directly linked to the instability of 1.004?

Get a CTD everytime i take the mission from Wolf at the very beginning. No crash log is issued.

Tried to remove the task_manager and it worked fine. Looks like threres a problem with that file which makes the game cras heverytime a new task is given. After removing it though , messages from stalkers disappeared and who knows how many other things went wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

You're using a version that isn't 1.0004, probably Steam (patched to 1.0005 by default). Need to downgrade first.

Happens whenever i try to go to the garbage from cordon after getting the documents from X18.
Looked up the file it can't find and it is definitely there. Any suggestions ?
