The envisionment of TK is to bring you what was promised by GSC for STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl, instead of the gutted retail release we were left with. TK aims to cover every aspect imaginable from gameplay intended to genuinely scare the player, to graphics for the absolute best visual experience, cut mutants, absolute realism, optimisations, stability, and a complete game mechanics overhaul, all without breaking the story. The idea is to present the player with a complete retail experience for the purist that liked SoC but wished it was far more fleshed out. In no way what so ever does TK try to be like old beta or alpha builds of SoC, TK aims to enhance everything SoC already has - nothing more, nothing less.
Part 1/3. Be sure to check the readmes and user manual. For SoC v1.0005. Download broken into 3 parts to make it easier on those who are bandwidth challenged :)
The dreams are coming faster now... everything is different but somehow the same. The Zone is inexplicably expanding as scientists struggle and fail to find explanations and answers to these mysterious phenomena. Most Stalkers think their worst nightmare is a well armed and armoured human... they are wrong. If only they knew what you do.
This is The Zone, and it will find a way to kill you.
How to install:
Extract Gamedata and bin folder along with fsgame to Stalker - Shadow of Chernobyl directory. For parts 2 and 3 extract the Gamedata folder to Stalker - Shadow of Chernobyl.
This file is required (but optional) to see TK2.Zero in all its graphical goodness. If you choose to use this file be aware that you will need to redo your key bindings, and if you game at any other resolution than 1680*1050 you will need to open user.ltx with notepad, scroll to the very bottom and change vid_mode to whatever resolution you game at.
This patcher will allow XR3DA.exe to address more than 2GB of system memory. You can also use this patcher if you are using a 32bit OS, allowing XR3DA to address and use close to 4GB.
Enabled by default in user.ltx. If you are experiencing poor performance you will need to disable GI. Open user.ltx and change r2_gi to off.
