Thanks for including my mod! :)
I couldn't not, It's the best in it's category that I know of.
Hi david, you said that it included dynamic helmet mod but when i wear a helmet, i didn't see any additional helmet hud?
hi does this mod include dynamic helmet hud cause i dont see any helmet hud when wearing different helmet
It's not a hud mod guys it's the dynamic helmet mod. It means that all third person views and cut scenes will show the correct helmet with the correct outfit so if your wearing the tactical helmet with a novice outfit it shows it and if your not wearing a helmet with the duty suit it'll show that.

Fixed it and it wasn't a weight issue it was a download fault some files missing or corrupted so i downloaded again this time all ok but still want to sort out the movement though they are a little slow other than that great mod.
I tweaked the run speed slightly because I think he runs around too fast, ie dog's etc shouldn't be out run so easily, However I only reduced it a tiny bit and I increased the jump speed a tiny bit to make sure you can reach the same places (I used my Devolution settings for that as it was thoroughly tested).
I presume that's what you mean by slow or is it something else.
Does this include new weapons? Increased spawns?
It uses the COP Original Weapons Renewal, I haven't added spawns but I've tweaked them very slightly so you also come across Izloms, Zombies, Cats and the odd Rat, I didn't want to add lots of spawns as it tends to break quests if your not careful, There is a slight increase in numbers but it's more about a little extra variety rather than loads of monsters everywhere, The zone can still feel lonely at times especially Pripyat.
thanks for reply
firstly its definitely was not the weight limit on looking at other specs from different mod i found that some files didn't download like the system file this i think effected the weight hence exhaustion.
secondly as for movement i understand about the speed against dogs even the bores but still needs a tweak its more the walking and crouching to me the walking seams a little slow and sounds like stomping/plodding and walking backwards should be about the same as forwards i know i can walk just as quick either way and as for crouching that to seams to slow specially when going for cover etc this goes for all mods.
ideally the game could do with a crawl/prone movements in our dreams LOL!
as for the rest of the mod its very good and top marks for the weapons and items etc. the graphics/designs are outstanding.
Is this using COP Original Weapons Renewal?
Thank you for this! I have been looking for something like this. I was actually going to start doing something like this for me, but it always caused crashes! Thanks! The new OWR weapons are amazing, love that AKM 74/2.
Do you know how to merge it with GOTZ? While I don't like cheating, I take my time in playing the game, this causes quest-related stuff to disappear.
I never use GOTZ so I haven't done a merge, What is it that disappears, The only thing I can think of is the Pripyat body with the explosives and thats easily avoidable by not taking the task from the Colonel until your going to do it. I've got another version of this aswell which has MSO in with it. I never used Af3 this time though just AF1 and AN 3 full, I'm currently checking for bugs.
Is there a chance to get MSO in this as well? I heard that AF1 is quite buggy.
Oh, and, I always get the task from the Colonel. Because to avoid Sokolov and Vano dying, I kill everyone in the bookstore first, so he always give it via radio.
Different task, I mean the one after you see him when coming out of the Pripyat lab, When you come up from the lab you get a message to go and see him. Once you see him a body in spawns in Pripyat with explosives that you need to blow the kindergarden door, if you don't go get them and leave the map the body disappears. So don't go see him until your ready to do that task. When you get his radio message to go see him just ignore it and travel the maps as you wish until your ready to do that stage.
Where did you read that Af1 was buggy?
Several forums, I didn't try it. I just stick to AF3, but I don't use separate mods anymore, just modpacks/all in ones.
Yeah, checked the wiki, different task, sorry.
I've got some minor problem with scope texture resolution (https://i.imgur.com/lYFDmDk.jpg?1).How can I fix it?
I forgot to mention that in the read me, You need to switch a file over based on the settings you use IE: DX9 or DX10/11, To switch files go into the following folder:
in this ui folder you see a file named ui_ingame.ltx and a folder called scopes. The scopes folder contains 2 versions of that file, one of them is the same as the one in the actual ui folder and one isn't, Switch to the other one in the gamedata/configs/ui folder.
Many thanks for the help.
The mod is awesome for the beginner Stalkers like my sister.
Also very stable.No crashes or bugs so far.
So thanks again.
And ...Good hunting Stalker!
I've downloaded this mod and when I tried to start it up, got this CTD:
[error]Expression : xml_doc.NavigateToNode(path,index)
[error]Function : CUIXmlInit::InitWindow
[error]File : D:\prog_repository\sources\trunk\xrGame \ui\UIXmlInit.cpp
[error]Line : 80
[error]Description : XML node not found
[error]Argument 0 : wpn_crosshair_fn2000
[error]Argument 1 : ui\scopes.xml
I'm running on the STEAM version of COP, but when I looked at the gamedata>config>ui found that I only have "scopes_16.xml", should I also have "scopes.xml" as well. David, you can e-mail to me if that is OKay, Thanx...gunso
I got that exact error once when I was doing some testing. I wanted to have faster load times for the test so I decided to quickly revert back to default settings by deleting my user.ltx file. I opened the game and loaded a save without changing anything and it would crash.
Managed to fix it by opening the game, configuring video settings and then closing the game to create a fresh new user.ltx and then loading the save after that, so I'd say try creating a new user.ltx file.
Make a second copy of the scopes_16.xml and rename it scopes.xml
Thanks for pointing that out, I imagine everyone on a non widescreen monitor will have this issue. So I'll add a copy for the final version.
download link is corrupted pls update soon as you can
The download is fine, Try again from a different mirror if need be.
it says the files are corrupted and cant be accessed
Unpack with win-rar.
needs an update to the one you use now, the version posted on public does not include, crow fix, burer fix, rucksack is name field kit with the bagpack description
I was wondering how you added the anomalies and radiated water? Is this from SGM? I am trying to add radiated water and anomalies to Misery 2 but I don't know which files to look for or if it would even work?
The water is an easy one, just add the gamedata/gamemtl.xr file from this to Misery, presumably Misery does not have this file in it. The anomalies around the map require adding to the all.spawn. If you know how to work on it I could send you a read me with the additions that you'll need to copy paste into each maps file for them. I'm pretty sure Misery has it's own all.spawn so you can't just switch them you'll need to make the additions into it's own one. I don't mind giving you a copy pastable set of anomalies for it though. The water file came from either SGM or Smrter 0.41, I can't remember which. I transferred some of the anomalies from a small Russian mod I can't remember the name of and used those as a template to travel around adding others.
I've heard this word from time to time which appears in capitals above so I will also use them as they may be initials: GOTZ.
Please can you tell me what it is or means?
I look forward to hearing from you
A similar one is the Voron mod
Dear David, i know that this might sound silly to ask this question but i hope that you might help me with my problem .. in stalker COP, i have an issue with some mods while some other mods works flawlessly. for example i am able run complete mod, i work alone mod, arsenal overhaul mod, pripyat reborn mod, redux mod ..But i am unable to run SGM 2.2, misery 1 mod, swartz mod and Merge mod 2013, the issue regarding these mods that it runs, then crashes when loading (on the screen of 100 zone tips, it always does this with all the above 4 mods).
CPU : core2duo e8400 3 ghz cash 6
memory : 4 giga ddr3
grapics: sapphire hd 6770 1 GB ddr5
deeply sorry to bother you but i thought that you would be the only persons to help me with this issue
Tnx for uploading this mod,it's really good mod..Is it compatible with others mods like MSO,Armory mod,Pripyat rebourn etc.
Hi..i have problem with some weapons ironsight zoom..so far i saw on mp5 and martha..on mp5 the crosshair is about 1 cm below ironsight and on martha is few milimeters above..plz fix
I'll upload some pics with those bugs..and can you tell me how to remove crosshair in both ironsight zoom and no ironsight zoom?
All the weapon settings are how they come with OWR, There is different files for the lightning setting your using so make sure your on the correct set and you shouldn't have any problems.
Game crashes upon attempting to start a new game.

Can I ask for a little help on this one? I dragged the gamedata folder into the appropriate area, set it to "true", and ran the 3GB RAM fix.
Hi, If your trying to use a non-widescreen monitor there is a file missing to fix this goto
Make a second copy of the scopes_16.xml and rename it scopes.xml
Hey David, I was wondering how would I go about merging the latest version of OWR with this mod? Thanks in advance.
It would include loads of little additions in each file for the extra ammo types and extra gun versions, also it will need you to rename some mesh files.
Perfect fix for me. New issue with the GP37 though: When I zoom in I get this screen: Imgur.com
Any idea what's offsetting the ironsights in this case? haven't been able to check any other scopes yet, too early in the game.
If you look in the configs/ui/textures_descr folder there is a scopes folder. It has a selection of ui_ingame files for use depending on which graphic settings your using, ie DX9 or DX10/11. hopefully that is the file you need to switch , having not tried it with a non widescreen monitor it may not be that but hopefully it is, let us know.
Checked my computer uses dx 11. Not sure how to check if stalker is using a different version due to steam though. Currently it only has dx 10/11 folder
That's because the one already in place is for DX 8/9 so move it to the scopes folder so you don't lose it and move the one in the DX 10/11 folder out to the main folder. The scopes folder is just a storage folder the files need to be in the ui/textures_descr folder to actually work, you'll see that the dx 8/9 one is in there now so move it to the scopes folder and move the one in the dx10/11 folder out to replace it.
moved the ui_ingame from inside scopes to replace the one which was in ui/textures_descr in gamedata folder. Then moved old ui_ingame back to old DX 10/11 folder. no dice sadly
disregard that I needed to place the file under the DX 10/11 folder in its parent folder. Got it working. Thanks for putting up with me these past few days.
Dear David.m.e, please help me, i have been trying to play your fantastic mod, but it always crash,my system specs are fairly decent, and can play vanilla stalker on maximum settings (resolution : 1366 * 768), i have tried every thing that can be tried but with no success and i noticed that all crash are somewhat related to memory although i have 4 GB of ram DDR3, but i found out the reason of the crash as i am using windows7 ultimate 32 bit. So i though why don't i try to upgrade to a 64 bit, and i did.. and viola .. it worked flawlessly. However, it seemed that my computer couldn't handle the 64 bit system and began crashing a lot which forced me to sadly return to the 32bit version. And like before i can't play your mod because it seems that it is compatible only with 64 bit systems. Can you please do anything to make your mod compatible with 32 bit systems or to make it use less memory than it uses now because - as i told you before - the crash nature is because of memory handling in 32 bit systems. Sorry for annoying you with my long message but i desperately want to play your mod. Thanks mate in advance.
hi, This mod is a 3gb fix patch, It has two parts, One part is for the main game and one part is for the Operating system. DO NOT use the game part. DO USE the operating system part as it allows 32 bit operating systems to use more ram, You need a minimum of 4gb's of system ram which you have so use the OS part of the patch and it should help you.
There may be some other underlying issue though, It would be better if you could find out what the problem is with using a 64 bit OS, especially if you now have one to use. See if any of your components like the motherboard have such a limitation, My other PC is a HP model and it came with a dual core Athlon II and 3gb's of ram, It turned out my motherboard would only allow a 4 core Phenom II and not the 6 core I wanted to use with it and it only allowed a max of 4gb's of ram, maybe your's has an OS limit in place, If not it may just be some other incompatible software you can update. Anyway here's the link, remember to only use the OS part.
i really don't know how to thank u David.. this patch really worked .. u r the best :)
