BEFORE YOU ASK A QUESTION!

Got a LOST ALPHA Game problem?
Don't post it here or anywhere else on Facebook. Why? The ModDB and FB formats make posts descend to the bottom with each new one and your concerns can easily be lost. Too many pages and posts can make your problems disappear.
Where to go?
The GSC Forums LOST ALPHA section is designed to post Game problems and to provide answers. In addition the format makes it easy to find previous problems posted where you may not have to ask.

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". Big respect to: Glory, Karma, Lex, Prof, Rainbow, Frodo, Dach, Koan, Mike, Jip, Jim, Jon, Yuriy, Terazoid, Tuz, Haron, Stohe, alexmx, chugai, Oles, Zmey, Iov, Sidorovich, CyLLlKA, dandy, Descruo, dima, Olga, LeSTAT, MadMax, Man0waR, Chapaev, Cy27-dw, Shyshkin, Narrator, Rolik, Atem, Yava, and many many more :)

Hi all,

Happy Holidays! This news post is to be used more as a resource for LA updates from the RU team/modders. As some of you know who are on this page often: I help to maintain, moderate and post files when applicable. There are a few others that post occasionally, but I plan on continuing to help with the moddb page until the zone takes me :)

The most up to date info is always posted on the RU VK page. If using google chrome, allow it to auto translate the page. If using another browser, use what ever translator that is available or just copy and paste the URL here:

Translate.google.com

General news about LA and other projects on the main page below:

Vk.com

Download section on the VK page:

Vk.com


Another good resource is AP Pro, two links below.

AP Pro main page:

Ap-pro.ru

Forum directly to the LA thread:

Ap-pro.ru


For instance, on the VK download page, you will see a really cool mod “STALKER Lost Alpha - Mod Update: Item Use Animations” that adds animations for eating/drinking/playing instruments, etc… it is really well done and immersive! If you allow google to auto translate, you can easily understand the release notes and how to download, etc...

I do not have any answers as to why some mods are not using the launcher, that is why I am posting this info here.


**Knowledge of manually adding mods/gamedata folders and or merging will be needed!

I check the above pages daily for up to date info. I will continue to post any info about core LA updates here as well, but not about addons.

LB


Putting this here as well, ty to MorbidSniper, his post reminded me some people still have this issue :)

** If you have launcher issues, here is an updated launcher from a while ago:

Drive.google.com

Download, then place in main LA dir and overwrite when asked.

Tried that,still nothing, it doesn't respond even on desktop. It's strange. Thanks tho
EDIT: Can i run it without configurator? When i use the exe. in bin folder it says i dont have system.itx, can someone upload it and then i run it from exe?

Uninstall , do a new install , install everything that comes along with the installer .
When you want to run the game try it without activating any mod first
On page 3 of comments a similar problem was solved bu doing a fresh install, this tells you that it should work .

Did you get any error reports when installing ?
What are your system specs ?

It works , no doubt about that , so something with your system or during install isn't right .

After install the configurator screen is what you see , from there you launch the game WITHOUT activating ANY mod .

Just a quick remark : if you have "russian spoken language "checked when installing that MIGHT be your culprit .
Uncheck it and see what happens

i really want to play this mod so i downloaded,redownloaded,installed and reinstalled and no install errors whatsoever. I also have no crash logs in app data folder, it's as if i don't even try to open the configurator. Tried with the language and still. Tried with no mods on install also, still nothing.
OS: Windows 10
Proc: i5 6400 2.40ghz
Graphic: GeForce 1050 Ti
Ram: 8 gb
Also, only this mod faults, every other mods (including anomaly, which also has a launcher) are working like charm and i really want to try this one:(

Ok , so system specs are better than mine lol
You did get the game from this site , right ? ( just to make sure , heard of people getting it from somewhere else and having all sorts of issues becasue of getting somewhere else )

If you did , and install goes without a problem then it should work .
No error logs even after starting the game ( and shutting itself down ) says it should work .
Have you tried , before starting the game , lowering the videosettings ( DX 9 , Static lighting , and everything else to low ) ?

yes, first i tried torrent, and then to be sure i got the part version md always came true.
I mean, i cant even start it, so i cant change anything whatsoever. When i run configurator literally nothing happens, only blue circle at my clicker for about a second, and if i run the exe file in bin folder im getting an error that i dont have system.ltx in my appdata folder, thats why i was asking for it. So no, i cant change anything because i cant even acces the configurator in the first hand

Tested it myself : running it from a shortcut ( D:\Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha DC\bins for me ) turns up the "system.itx " warning .
Launching the game through the configurator works like a charm .

But since you mention it isn't even opening the launcher i'm assuming things like MS Visual , MS Net are not (properly) installed ( and the game needs these ) just like the DirectX checking .

Without error-logs it is freaking impossible to say where this is going limp .

But for sure this game works .

checked all net frameworks and similar programs and all reinstalled, still nothing. Well, unfortunately i dont think i'll be playing this mod :( Thanks for helping though! :)

Ok here is your solution: go to your bins folder and remove : FSGAME.itx

then from your desktop shortcut XR_3DA.exe you should be able to start the game

My post about this from way back.

"Delete fs.ltx and fsgame.ltx from the bins folder, but not the two that sit in the main root directory. Doing this will allow you to use the games exe directly bypassing the launcher. I only use that thing for mod update. "

It's Lost Alpha. Should it be rated any less?
