The Zone of Alienation mod is an adaptation of the renowned AMK mod. It is built on top of a specialized variant of AMK that uses a magazine system. From this premise, it has expanded to aim to include the following:

Thread for non-engine breaking bugs, unfortunately this still contains game-breaking bugs.

Okay, was asked to post here; will hopefully help others in search of an answer with the same problem.

Issues: Magazines 

-Can't reload empty magazines
-Completely loaded magazines are treated as magazines with only one cartridge in them; once a fully loaded magazine is loaded into the firearm (my examples are the M16A3, HK 416 and unique 9x39mm AK-74; using the STANAG and AS VAL magazines, respectively) and the gun is fired, it will immediately go to the reload animation and the magazine will disappear from my inventory.

I was advised to load an earlier save, but since XR_3DA is also crashing I'll have to find an autosave to play with, will repost or edit this post tomorrow once I've gotten the chance. I'll also look in the magazine.ltx, just to get familiar with it.

Also, FF, this is the guy in the stalker general who was talking with you and Peter about firearms in general and before that Peter and I had a lengthy Freedom vs. Duty discussion.

Solution: Load an autosave, fixed the magazine issue completely; was able to load empty magazines and fire the entire magazine without firing the first round and the weapon going into the reload animation and losing the magazine from my inventory.
Just remember to hardsave as much as you can and don't get upset if this happens to you; making you have to load an autosave.
I will be looking into the magazine.ltx and try to figure out why this happened and how it can be solved, if it can.

So did you try what I told you, last night yet? The part about loading an earlier save.

I have rarely gotten this bug myself, it's quite annoying, since it is basically the magazine system bugging out, and treating the magazine as one round. (effectively making them useless,) but so far I haven't had repeats after loading an earlier save.

It's happened more often to me than it used to, since adding the GPS, before then I've only really had 1 or 2 instances of this bug, and those were in the very early builds where the bind_stalker.script and _g.script weren't properly configured.

For this reason it's a good idea to make many manual saves in your game, and to of course save before sleeping.

There are probably some other problems caused by the bind_stalker.script glitching out, like the disappearing sleeping bag or backpacks when used.

Well, I had tried loading an earlier save but XR_3DA was crashing on every hardsave before my autosave. Also, this is the first time it has ever happened. At the time of that video and when this bug happened I was just playing 1.05, after it started to bug and XR_3DA crashing I updated to 1.06a, 1.06b then the 1.07 patch, in the hopes something was fixed. So far it hasn't happened again, I made sure to hardsave a lot more often than what I was. 

Also, I had never hardsaved before sleeping but now I will. Haven't had any instances where I had a sleeping bag or rucksack disappear on me (knock on wood). 

Thank you for the advice, it really helped. I mostly didn't try the autosave before because I had never had a bug in any mod or vanilla version where I had to, guess it is just luck. Now that I know, I suspect I won't run into any problem where I'd have to start an entire new play-through like someone else had suggested.

Seems like Mosin Nagant is broken, sometimes my aim gets all wavy (as if I ride a bike) after shooting. And A.I. are shooting in the air with it.

I've had this happen, lost my binocs before. The magazine anim takes up the same slot as binocs, usually they return after you've loaded every magazine, one usually doesn't show in the slot, so load every one, during that time the binocs stay in the inventory and return after all mags are loaded, but rarely this will bug out leaving no binocs.

I've run into a weird issue.  I returned to the cordon from the dark valley and slept in the tunnel you spawn next to, as it was pitch black and around 22:00.  I rose and it was 6:30. yet it was still pitch black.  I saved and then loaded the save as this sometimes happened in a few shoc mods I've played and reloading a save would usually fix the day/night cycle.  It was still pitch black so i tried to navigate to sid.  I kept crashing and relized I was encountering a controller I couldn't see, due to the darkness.  I used the controller kill command, turns out there were 3 of them attacking me at once, which would explain the crashes.  I finally navigated all around the cordon did a couple of jobs and no matter what time of day it is it is still pitch black outside.  The only reason I've been able to play was to crank up the gamma and brightness. Any advice?

Interesting that you got this even before I changed weather, I've gotten this problem once with the weather cycles too, and this is with the new version. I think it's a bug with the sleeping bag where it doesn't "reset" the weather like it's supposed to on game load. So that means I didn't screw up anything with the new weather at all.

Try changing levels and see if that works.

Soooooooo, I have a problem.
Some quest markers remain where they are after completetion and some quest just doesn't seem to work for me.
(bloodsucker village)
But my main problem is the magazines, I encountered a problem where as I unload my weapon I get around 20 (new) full magazines, and after a while this started acting out even more. After I use one of these new magazines to reload my carried weight goes through the roof, I think it goes to 50kg and after I drop the magazines and pick em up it reverts back to 33kg but as soon as I reload again i'm back to 50kg.
Should I just restart my whole game or is there some way to solve this? don't really want to restart the game.

Nice mod dude, but there are too many blur... it really makes me puke T_T. How can i reduce blur ?

Magazines won't reload from boxed(vanilla style) ammo.  They load, then immediately empty themselves in the inventory.  I'd really like to knock noggins with the SVD I found, but I can't reload the mags I got with it with the boxed 7N14 ammo it came with.  Same issue goes for all ammo/magazine types it seems.

Apr 27 2013, 10:41pm Anchor

I think I might have had this same bug that time I tried to make new magazines for the SIG 550.

If it eats your binocs try loading an earlier save before then. Sometimes I had my binocs disappear, then re-appear later on, because I still had a magazine in the slot that wasn't displayed on my belt.

Ok ok thanks you FatalFunnel, after staring a new game and delete the old save game, all my problems have been fixed, now i can reload magazine.
But i wonder, i dont see any Artifact Detector, did you remove it ? And when i give the mekit to the NPC they still lie on the Ground, they cant stand up and they cant fight, how can i fix it ?

Saiga Tactics repair cost is borked

-Amending this, it is only with Barkeep.  Sakharov repairs it for a few thousand RU as expected.  So it seems to be a Barkeep only problem.

What happened when I loaded a savegame.
After quicksaving, quickloading, and then loading the save again, it got fixed.


AAnother one, starts happening after you die in the Arena, at the bar.

The MR-444 Bagira has a very conflicting item description.  It says it uses 20rd 9x19 pistol magazines when its title is 9x18 caliber.  Meanwhile, it loads 15rd 9x18 magazines!

I having the same problem as the guy above where the time of day is not updating when you sleep, but whenever I change levels the weather doesn't reset.
I'm currently trying to sleep it back round to where the time should be.
Any better ideas?

Whenever I open a chat window with someone, I get a strange looking window as well as my inventory being completely screwed. I'm not sure what's going on here. 

Screwy chat box.
 

Screwy Inventory

I'm running the steam downgraded version. Followed the instructions on that image for the downgrade, and installed the mod and hotfix as instructed.

I ran into a bandit that had his inventory FULL of guns he looted. It is bugging me way more than it should. I saw him walking around and running even though if I had that much gear I wouldn't even be able to walk with. I couldn't attach a image I can send you it if you really want to see it.
