If you have a bright sky or dark ground, these are the settings you want to edit:
'r2_sun_lumscale_amb' and 'r2_sun_lumscale_hemi' (both work in tandem to brighten or darken ambient lighting, I use 1 and 1.1 respectively)
'r2_ls_bloom_threshold' (threshold for what light sources can be affected by bloom, such as the sky, I use 0.3)
'r2_ls_bloom_kernel_scale' (general bloom intensity, I use 0.7)
these settings can be found easily and adjusted with the console ingame (` key). just start typing and the settings should show up in the dropdown list. (without quotes)

I have 60GB of storage on the drive that i installed it, with a 4GB GPU and 8GB RAM. I have installed it like it was said, but i get this CTD. I tried to launch it with it's original launcher, and it said the same thing.

Hi, what renderer are you using? Are you running as admin?
This is a very weird bug, because it has happened to me ONCE before and I couldn't figure out why, it just left on its own. The mod seems to work perfectly for many but this crash creeps up from time to time, it might have something to do with that no_staging command.

I need to run a resource monitor to confirm that, but perhaps for now try running it as admin without the no_staging command (if you haven't removed that already) but let me know about the renderer - the engine COTZ uses is very finicky about stuff like that.

I ran it as admin, same result. Ran that command by putting it in the batch file shortcut properties, same result. Tried to change renders, since i ran it on Direct X 9 (Enhanced). Here is the list of renderers i tried:

DirectX 8 (Basic) = Works
Direct X 9 (Basic) = Dosen't work
Direct X 9 (Normal) = Dosent't work
Direct X 9 (Enhanced) = Dosen't work
Direct X 10 (Enhanced) = Works, but longer loading screen and reduced performance.
Direct X 10.1 = Works, but even longer loading screens and more fps plumeting.
Direct X 11 (Enhanced) (Disabled 10.1 Option in Advanced options) = Works, but same longer loading screen problem, and introduced micro-stutters in game, and a smol fps drop.

It seems it's a DX9 problem. All of the ones that didn't work gave the same error message. I ran all of these with the command, and as administrator.

What are your exact specs? The problem really isn't the addon, its the terrible game engine that COTZ uses. It's running an outdated version of Xray used in base CoC, and if it just was able to run on the anomaly engine or something else, we wouldn't have this issue...

There are some very high resolution textures at play here. The renderer thing - thats due to the engine unfortunately. No_staging offloads some RAM use to your GPU to bypass the 32 bit RAM limit, but if your GPU is old then it might struggle.

I see.
My specs are AMD RX 550, and Core i5 4440s. It's not the greatest, but it's not the worst. I wasn't suprised when DX10-11 stuttered for me. That's why i always play on Direct X 9 (Enchanced), because that's the most stable for me, while not losing major graphical quality.

Ah - there should not be an issue with your rig here. Should be running everything perfectly. I'm going to release a new version soon with some less taxing textures and balance updates, I'd say try the addon again then :)

Hi.
Tried few times, changing basic/advanced graphic settings. Then tried
running as admin "COTZ no staging high processor affinity.bat" file.
XML node not found???

What resolution do you play at? The autumn aurora hud only works on widescreen I think - that might be the problem.

Will try it again, and post if that worked.

How do I enable the debug menu? Since I can only start the game using the .bat file. I just want to test things out and mess around for a while before actually playing the game.

You can edit the bat file and just put -dbg at the end of the line next to no_staging and smap2048 :)

Is there any way to bring back the minimap?

Also came across a CTD when I press the companion move-to-point button that I binded, here's whats in the crash log saying something about particles:
Pastebin.com

Please fix that, I use that command very often when I have companions around and I also believe it's something related to Hollywood FX.

test this little fix: Mediafire.com

It removes any references to the companion particle in the axr_companions.script since HollyWood FX's particles.xr lacks references to the companion particle, but there will be no visible green/red flash when ordering companions to move.

A new massive update just came out for AO3, will you be updating your mod up to that version anytime soon?

I would recommend playing without this mod for now - My computer isn't working so I cannot update it.

hi, this version is outdated, there will be a different version of the overhaul later. I had too much trouble with arsenal overhaul.

This overhaul makes the mod complete. I'm playing it through the ,,COTZ no staging high processor affinity.bat,, and it's a blast :). Not too hard nor too easy and that's on the Master difficulty... Just an awesome collection indeed; keep it up;)

Getting constant ctds for a while now; when i load the last savegame, it happens always after the same time (ca. 3 mins ingame):

! VERIFY_FAILED: e:\stalker\x-ray source\x-ray_callofchernobyl\src\xrgame\level_graph_inline.h[34] {CLevelGraph::vertex} valid_vertex_id(vertex_id)

When checking the file path, the folder "weapons" does not contain any subfolder called explo ?! i did not install any weapon mods recently (playing with your addon for 175 savegames now, had no issues with that so far)..

DocX suggested that it has to be connected to addon files, not to "vanilla" cotz....you have any ideas what i could check? didnt find any similar problems in other forums...

Might be an issue with AO3, it shouldn't happen so often however
