Anomaly is a standalone S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod powered by an x64 version of the X-Ray engine. Starting with version 1.5.0 Anomaly uses a custom engine build called the XRay-Monolith engine. After almost one year of development of the Anomaly 1.5.0 update, the mod continues its way on expanding and adding new features while maintaining a high level of quality and replay value.
Improves the sounds of every gun in the game ; reload, trigger, draw, holster, shoot, silenced, grenade launcher... EVERYTHING ! Based on my work on The Armed Zone 2.0, JSRS and some more mods.
My first personnal contribution to Anomaly and to the STALKER community, at least from my very own initiative !
For those who don't know me, I am the one that participated in making "The Armed Zone 2.0" mod for Call Of Pripyat - Misery, especially with the sounds.
This works is the result of a long journey - about 4 years to collect the best samples of firearms being shot on youtube, creating and mixing thousands of sound files to create something pleasant to shoot.
Only when I discovered JSRS for Anomaly I decided I'd try to improve the sounds I made for TAZ 2.0, and it's the best result i've ever had !
I tried it a few times, never had any crash ! If you go for miskerkat as well, put in on top, then reapply Yim's patch for it in Yim's addon.
There is not much more to say. I wrote a full changelog for every gun ltx and a very long readme for installation that also gives every explanation needed.
Perhaps check out my youtube to have samples of some of the improvements made :
PATCHES : are not cumulative ! you need all of them. Will be included in the next version.
V1.01 : fixed missing ogg comments for vz61 and stalker_3 death voices.
V1.02 : fixed some more missing ogg comments.
V1.03 : fixed an issue where famas didn't use proper sound (would cause CTD).
