Mods | ---> ELITE mod (for STALKER ShOC wwv v.10006) www.moddb.com/mods/elite-mod-stalker | ---> BLOODLINES EXTREME (for VTMB + UP.. plus) www.moddb.com/mods/bloodlines-hard-difficulty
Obviously no. Read manual for requirements and more.
I hope they develop the VTM Bloodlines 2, but for the truth I see only confusion and no specific plan about. Just "sensational" announcements... but seeming more fakes than real projects.
Maybe money and copyright and different opinions by possible programmers continue to break that (and obviously they dont say that in "public"). Otherwise... I dont see any reason because they dont (or didnt) create that, after 14 years from first release. And none doubts that VTMB was (and is) a very great success.
Well.. ok.. continue to hope
Ok... all solved :) Remember always the right installation folder. If you have any other problem about Steam, contact me.
And about Elite... first times.. start with Novice. Have fun
If need help and/or all works with STEAM let me know. In private too, np.
And if first time you play ELITE, I suggest you Novice/Stalker difficulty... and Manual.
Updated answer: actually Steam, as said a my friend, seems work. Added some info about in download Description.
Too generic and not enough datas. Need a lot of detailed infos about to undestand the reasons.
And by log sent to me, ELITE has not been loaded. Btw I answered you in private too, trying to help. Being you new to STALKER and mods it is almost normal...
Well... np and thanks to you for those infos. But now I have some (real) doubt that mod ll work on STEAM :) ..mmmhh...
NP... but let me say this for first and generically (because many players seems dont understand that): ELITE doesnt touch the XRay engine and neither the BIN directory. That means, in few words, that any problem regarding some rare issues or limitation are NOT depending by ELITE but by those ones (However, in my win 8.1 system, ALL runs perfectly, though my video card is, honestly, a bit crap). About Win10 I didnt test it on that OS; so.. I guess... if something doesnt work, you can try: Admin mode and compatibility mode with Win7, XP sp2 or sp3 (and/or also win 8/8.1?)
The most important thing is: DONT change or add anything UNTIL it doesnt work normally and eventually with its optional packs.
And avoid initially, more than any other thing, any "shader" (they terribly slow the game and all if PC is not "high") add on.
If all works... you can add/replace what you want, knowing what you are doing, obviously.
Let me know.
So you did need be careful before killing those. Use bino to see where soldiers are and regulate yourself.
For the rest, if you dont hurry and avoid the eventual fire of many enemies vs you, at same time, you can do it... You usually can afford 2/3 max.
(And as I say always... to know ELITE need play it many times)
Anyway Master is very hard, but having more money you can get also more medkits and you really need use them fast. If Master is hard.. go to Veteran and all 'll be better. Stalker.. no! :)
Yes...but in that way you ll have much more money than any "normal" player and as mod requires.
About the escape south mil. post, you have to avoid those. But I guess you provoke them to assault the village and, at the end, you get the items from dead bodies .. so more money always :) . Not good! (at least, for me).
Btw the important thing...if you find it fun, though heavily unbalanced., np.
For a better balance there is anyway a solution: you have to play, at this point and with those changes, only at Master level.
Well... happy you dont find them "impossible". What difficulty? for curiosity .
Later.. try to use continue single shots from medium/far distance. And when need or you can ... headshots.
In manual you find many infos about.
And DONT HURRY. Elite requires cold calm (and except when you need fast lethal action) or you die many times.
About US, no relative US file is in (maybe you mean Eng?). .. so cannot say anything about. About Esp, the file appears perfect and identical to Italian, except the code obviously. It is "esp" and for italian is "ita", example. At least, I know that.
But no.... cannot be regular, because default file (that you are using) miss some necessary strings about language, and then can cause some problem So. I guess.. you have changed some stalker/mod file or "something" has done that or some your confusion in your original stalker about "its" original language.
Anyway and in few words, the Elite "localization.ltx" files need these specific strings in:
stable_repair_dialogs, string_table_s, ui_elite_honor_rank
I can understand, but think... the default weapons (shotguns, heavy guns, rifles, snipers) were about 19, in ELITE 28. And NPCs types dont go over 20 (and effectively they are less than 15 about). The big/enourmous "quantity" of weapons availabale has a sense in a Multiplayer game, where any real player is an enemy and anyone is obviously different. But in single player has no sense have an "arsenal". Btw (future) I could add max another 1 weapon and maybe just for fun. For me... and logically... weapons are also now too much (programmers were perfect also in that).
PS: to finish, let me say this.. It's really "sad" if you play (or consider) a game, just counting the number of weapons in it.
If some russian want translate it, why no...But, anyway, I guess russian version is different from wwv version (yes? no? and patches?). Also, I dont know the folders (and files), same or different, comparate to wwv and their "tree" in the game.
Just to add it, I love russian language (and russian culture) and I can write/read also some word, but not more.
ps: or you mean... adding (example) that lang. pack to wwv version?
Mmmmhh.... it can (can?) work adding all translated files and adding/changing the unique file string_table_includes.xml, I guess; but not having that complete translation I never tried or tested it. Anyway the "voices" in game ll be only those in native installed language. So... need replace also all relative sounds/voices files.
It should be more simple, as I wrote, if i knew the complete folder tree of russian version.
Updated answer: effectively there is nothing in common with misery (or other mod).. no scripts, events, values, UI, AI, spawn, unique features and the rest... etc etc. Maybe difficulty... as some player have referred, but I am almost sure BE is more hard and also with less money, though that is not so significant by itself.
In next version 9.3 some new weapon model 'll be added.
ps_1: dont stay as guest. Ty.
ps_2: anyway it's pratically impossible for me translate, eventually, in all languages... the infos about the new weapons, being ELITE a multilingual mod. On the contrary, with one only language (usually Eng.) it's very easy.
Obviously is not compatible with any other mod, as any other mod is not compatible with this.
Read manual for further infos
Very probably they 'll be more than 4 as announced in a momentary preview (...could be 6 about...). Obviously more they 'll be, more tests 'll need. Because they 'll be fully integrated into ELITE and perfectly balanced, basing values (plus or minus) on current used weapons and your position in game progress. In few words they 'll be not "random".
Plus... files 'll be also cleaned and fixed (just some error) and some weapon texture 'll be improved too. So the next version 'll be really great and always fast and detailed as its style.
To GUEST: Well..my previous comment and Elite manual always explained lot of things about and more.
To CHEEKI: agree with you. Anyway for low/medium enemies the headshots are just an option, if you move fast and good anyway.
Main problem is: most of players are (bad) accustomed (and from too much years, I guess) by Vanilla or by most of other mods, so they meet difficulties in ELITE.
For me (and lot of players, I am sure) ELITE is not so difficult, if strategy is not just shot around, killing soon all. To finish, many stalker players speak about "realism" and blablabla... Well, how much is realistic for only one man kill (easily or almost) 10, 100, 1000 enemies without die? Dont need add anything anymore.
The "low damage" is just an opinion. You have to know that elite NPCs also are more hard. And if you rise the damage, the whole mod 'll be unbalanced... by money too. Fight better and/or read tips in Manual. And I dont understand what you mean.. about crash of the mod if you change the damage.
It is not true. Surely you wrong in some change about. And anyway we recommend.. dont change anything.
To finish, you need play many times ELITE to know it, because it is hard (mainly for the new players) and also and maybe.. changing your usual fighting strategy. And ye... forget any other mod. Elite is Elite. And not just (or only?) a weapons shop, with some "hero" around.
Try (to start) with Novice. I think all 'll be better for you.
You need use your key for "Use discipline" to activate it. Only by that the right effect 'll be on.
Servers are by MODDB. Just try later and/or check your downloading program about and/or your used browser.
The download by itself works.
I guess yes. And just re-tested again it in mine. All works. Maybe you have changed/added some file or a random glitch.
Yes.. it does and without restart the game. Just load a previous save in the relative previous map... then enter in those maps (if you are there about).
note: it is not full tested (whole version mod) so, for any big problem, post or contact. ty
Naaaa... :) Playing it's more fun than mod it, when mod is good or enough. I am for first thing a "player", and I love fight, also with some difficoult. And after... and eventually... a "modder".
Cheater! :) ..though in that way you dont get real fun. But I did smile reading "the most sleepy player since..."...ahahaah.
Ty for your appreciation about textures and note on Prince the "micro" precision work about his "symbol" (dont know the exact english word).
About your add, post a screenshot, if you want, where you can... so I can see it, just for curiosity.
Never played UP + BE? Well... I guess 'll be hard first times :)
Oh ok.. Btw you dont need apologies.. np. Not your fault.
Think I am not eng/usa, so this is not my native language and often i confuse or dont understand all.
From 8.1 to 9.1 many changes (and improvements, under all points of view) have been done in Elite, but dont play it, eventually... Wait for 9.2.
I all add some mutant (probably the chimera) and try to solve, by some workaround, some big (though rare) STALKER default glitch and other...
I know you should like more events and fights and other... after the classic "end", but what I can say...
my time is very short (few?) and I work also on another mod. And to be honest the "real" game is before that end,
or just a bit after (for me...eh?) having the PKM.
Ty for your nice and detailed comments.
ps: the 9.2 approximately can be on in 1 month if all goes good.
Mmmmhhh... complete doesnt mean ultimated, but referred to its (many) features.
And surely I ll work on it (and when for me possible). Anyway I ll prefer always quality to quantity. Always.
Also, I dont understand what you mean for "end".... You can continue, in this mod, after the classic default "end" and do what you want. You have played it or...?
Thanks to you.. also for the very good info.
I'll write about GOG 184.108.40.206 compatibility in a next version, so other players having that 'll know.
Anyway..if you find any error/problem post or contact.
And in BE... be careful fledgling :)
Mmmhh... I am not sure about because I have not that, but if with UP only game starts, then very probably also with BE 'll work.
Try and if want let me know about (also about specific GOG ver. used). Ty
