The long awaited 3rd patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:Lost Alpha has been finally released.

Posted by on

Third patch for
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha
has been released!


Here is long awaited 3rd patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha. Here are some
very important facts about it:

• Due to the changes in storyline and engine, it's required to start a new game after you installed this update.
• Your previous saves will not work.
• This patch is cumulative, so you don't need to install the previous (1.3002) patch at all.
• The patch installer will wipe out your gamedata directory so backup whatever mods you've installed
• Beware, mods made for previous patches will not work with this 3rd patch until mod makers make them compatible. We can not give support in this case.

There is no way to convert the old saves to the new patch ?
I am very far into the game :(

Nope, they way the X-Ray Engine is made it's rather impossible for the update to be compatible with the old saves without crashes.

Dunno if it will work, but using "all.spawn" file from the old patch can probably make it possible to load 1.3002 saves while using 1.3003 patch.
You won't get extra A-Life stuff though and the game may become unstable.

Just don't apply the patch. The game can be finished just fine with 1.3002. All game breaking issues of 1.3002 should be covered by these workarounds:

Yeah, I decided to wait to pick up the game again, after getting to bar, when I first heard the 1.3002 patch would require a new game. dezowave said no more newgames should be required.

I came back to the mod after 1.3002 was released but couldn't get back into the mod. I had lost all interest in playing it. And now that I see a newgame is required again? I understand why, but man, now I'm probably just gonna put the entire thing off for a year, just for stability's sake.

That's perfectly reasonable. The way I look at it, this is an open developed game. It's not finished. It's possible to play it to the end but be ready to deal with various issues and it gets more stable with each upcoming patch. Dezodor's promise about no restarts required after 1.3002 (I'm surprised he did that) was wrong, I'm expecting a lot more in the future as more of the A-Life will be changed (which is a great thing, one of the biggest problems this game has now that it's reasonably stable is the static NPCs/monsters, ie nothing happening in the Zone to keep your interested other than doing quests).

Why is the DirectSound software driver still being forced? Not enough people owning compatible soundcards? Unified experience? Something I'm missing?...

The new vehicle physics or weight (What-ever the case may be) have worsen, I can easily tip over with any driveable vehicle.

That goes for (What I presume) all the driveable vehicles. (The white escape car and the military jeep are the only ones I've been able to test so far)

I'm asking if with this last patch the weather changes. With 1.3002 always cloudy after first day

It changes for me in 1.3003,
(Which is quite appreciated)
The added 'blowout' might crash
the game when npc's are spawned
outside (Not in safety, that's my
guess to why I'm crashing)
A possible heads-up.

I'm like a die hard stalker fan. I've had multiple game breaking bugs that ive either started over or manipulated game files to overcome this far. I have written down alot of feedback for what i think are bugs, balance issues and suggestions to make the game better. how do i get this to you? can u guys email me vorpal77 (at) hotmail Im going to just beat it all the ways i can in 1.3002 and then id like to leave feedback. if you guys want it. thanks for an awesome effort. This is one of the top ten shooters in gaming history I dont understand why you guys had to develop this for free instead of gsc making millions dont understand but thank you. where do i donate btw. email me.
