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:

  • Realistic ballistics.
  • An expanded arsenal of weapons.
  • Improved AI.
  • An expanded and embellished storyline, from the original Shadow of Chernobyl, while preserving the original core plot.
  • New levels.
  • New characters.
  • New quests.
  • An artifact detection system, and new artifacts, with old artifacts having altered properties
  • A realistic implementation of night vision, weight, sleep, and possibly weather even affecting the actor.
  • Many visual improvements over the standard SoC, and AMK. 
  • Vastly increased difficulty.
  • Optional freeplay with the ability to traverse every level of the game, and join any faction.

Hey ho, first of all, thanks for this mod. Sounds interesting and looks great.

My question: When I try to start a new game, I get a crashlog with:

XR_3DA.exe caused BREAKPOINT in module "C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\bin\xrCore.dll" at 0023:00FB7D15, xrDebug::backend()+165 byte(s)

I have already try to fix this by turning out EAX and switch the graphic settings.
I´ve got the original stalker soc (no steam version) patched to 1.04 with ZoA 1.07 gamedata + 1.07 patch 13 and the fsgame.ltx changed to gamedata=true.

Would be great if anyone know this problem and how to deal with it.

Greetings from germany!

Soo I went to the army warehouses to clear out the bloodsuckers, and I also got the quest from Murk and after having killed like 3-4 of them the quest from Murk was completed but the one from the guy in the bar did not, is there a way I can fix this?

This is a bug with AMK spawning other mutants in the place where that particular bloodsucker spawns.

Probably because you're holding a weapon without a proper rank, but I can't really help if you don't post your crash log.

The Max thing is from vanilla, the ambush thing is something we broke which will hopefully be fixed next version.

Next update will not be save compatible so, you know. No harm doing stuff at AW if you want to. Although try not to save too much in there, they can be corrupt sometimes.

Yes, it will be a new base version. Release is, well, when it's done. There's not really a time frame, but hopefully within the month. As to music I don't really have an opinion, maybe send FF a PM.
