Have you ever dreamt about playing the old, forgotten S.T.A.L.K.E.R. ?

We were amazed by GSC's work when they released the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. screenshots in 2002. The old design, and atmosphere was stunning and we couldn't believe our eyes. Later in 2005 things has changed. They redesigned almost all old levels. Some of them became smaller, simpler (still nice, but different), and some levels were removed. After the release in 2007 we played the game a lot, and quickly noticed that some areas are missing. We opened forums, and talked countless nights about those for almost a year. Nowdays we could say, we have a full vision about GSC's old levels, due to the collected materials, videos and forgotten screenshots. We decided to remake those stunning areas, maybe they won't be the same, but we will try everything to make them look really nice, as we always wanted to see them. In early 2009, GSC released a build from 2004, which contained many old materials. We used some of the sdk objects for the level remakes, but adjusted (and bugfixed) them for our liking, also we didn't throw out our own levels. So expect to see our own Darkscape, Dead City, Rostok Factory and some more in Lost Alpha :)

Also need to say, Lost Alpha addon is not just about levels and levels. We will try to make a somewhat, but not fully restricted alife, and deliver a lot of new, never seen features, among with some old ones, which many people wanted to see for long. If you are interested in, check the Features menu for FAQ, Interview, Features List, and many more. Also do not forget to check the gallery, and the movies. All comments are welcome, also we are glad to see suggestions too, however at this stage those won't be considered.
Thanks for your understanding!


Finally, we would like to thank to the old Stalker Team this wonderful game. Without them, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. wouldn't be a "dream-game".

Hi all,

There is a new version of LA out (DC Extended), link below. Again, I had no involvement in this. This was made by the RU Dev, all credit goes to them. I wont be able to offer much support, if you follow the instructions it will work.

Drive.google.com

Install instructions (google translated):

1) Install the 1.4007 version of the game.
2) Delete the appdata and mods folders.
3) Inside the gamedata folder: delete the spawns folder (if there is one) the spawns.db0, textures.db6 archives. Then in the levels folder delete la21_generators2.db0
4) Unpack the downloaded archive into the folder with the installed game confirming the replacement of the files.
5) Launch the launcher and in the mod section, install LADC Extended. (YOU MUST ENABLE THIS MOD TO GET UPDATES FOR IT)
6) After installing LADC Extended, you can install mods from the launcher to taste.

*I did a fresh install of 1.4007, then installed this. I recommend others do the same. DO NOT INSTALL ANY MODS IF DOING A FRESH INSTALL, WILL MAKE IT EASIER.

**1.4007 save games ARE NOT COMPATIBLE AND DO NOT USE ANY OLD MODS OR YOUR GAMEDATA FOLDER. YOU WILL NEED TO MANUALLY CHECK AGAINST THE NEW FILES IF YOU WANT TO MOD.

Patch notes located below, let it auto translate, there is so much fixed/changed! This update includes all previous storyline fixes and misc. updates like the engine update etc...

Vk.com

Some things to note after loading it up and playing/testing for a bit:

-The save system has been changed and is a bit odd. It will auto save upon moving in and out of camps. It seems like you can no longer quicksave (probably so there arent save file corruptions anymore) all the time, EXCEPT you can in designated "safe" areas. You can manually save in those same areas as well. I am guessing there are a number of those areas on each map.

-There are some included mods, like PRM weapon pack. I am playing with it now, because there are so many other good changes.

-The HUD has been changed to just a simple line for your health. I personally am not a fan of that, so you can revert back to the old HUD if you know how to in the files, or I just play with it totally off now anyway.

We will all have to help each other if there are issues. So try to contain discussion under this post, so its only about the extended edition.

Works for me... just start the game up yourself and check.

And you wont get any update notes here. You would have to go to the VK page to check for any patch notes, but the dev typically does not post them.

Can international part of team port fixes from Extended to DC?
I don't like EX, but there are engine and script updates etc.
I hope for 1.4008.

As for LADC , you will have no luck , for now LADC has been abandonded.
LADCE on the other hand might turn 1.4008 and have changes made to gameplay .

Getting a Lost Alpha Configuration error:
"An unexpected error has occurred, and the program's state is unstable. You may be able to continue working, but it's highly recommended to save all changes and restart the program immediately. Details are in the log file."

After I get that popup the launcher just closes. I tried copying over an older version of the launcher but it just closes randomly without even giving an error.

I downloaded the torrent of this mod and downloaded it that way. So I'm not too sure if it's the extended version or not.. Problem is, I can't even update the launcher.. It closes by itself before I can do anything :/

I also did redownload it a few times with no help..

You have the LADC version
Check above the "Resources for LA updates " section .
In it you will find how to update to a working version of the Launcher .

Thanks for the info but I tried that before I decided to make the first comment.. And it didn't work.. I also just downloaded all the parts one by one (instead of the torrent), and it does the same thing.

The DC version has a problem with the launcher right now, the RU dev is working on fixing it, no ETA.

The DCE launcher however is working.
