Absolutely new story modification for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat

In this modification was made a try to combine all of the best elements of every original game of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Here you will find absolutely new plot, pretty large side quests, you will meet the characters which you already saw before in whole trilogy.

Main changes

  • new plot;
  • new locations;
  • some features that were recovered from SoC (stash system, old controller, snork, poltergeist, square minimap, interactive dialog system etc.);
  • thirst of main player (inscriped in the engine);
  • elements of mysticism and horror;
  • reworked system of artifacts;
  • integrated STCoP Weapon Pack 2.9;
  • Atmosfear 3;
  • Abosulte Nature 4.


In fall of 2014 year in the borders of Chernobyl Zone a Strongest Blowout in whole history thundered. After that big disaster the Zone has began to devour all more and more areas of the Earth, threatening the existence of life on the planet. In 2048, a time machine was inveted. And its creater gives birth to plan to save humanity. This plan consists in sending to the past a military specialist who is definitaly able to figure out the main reasons of this massive blowout and eliminate it.

Gaming process

Despite the fact that the main plot begins in the future, there are absolutely no elements of fiction, except for the original world of the Zone (which was founded by developers from GSC Game World). There's no starships, blasters, aliens, wars with space people or something similar. The main action takes place in 2014 and represents the continuation of the original trilogy.
The plot of modification is calm and half-freeplay'able, it does not lead a player on rails. When you complete the basic tasks, new levels open with additional taskts, some of which take players to unique locations.

Optional features

  • fully adopted HD Models Addon (author of original pack is Ninja_Nub[NOR]);
  • fully adopted SWTC (author of original pack is Vincent_Vega);
  • French, German, Italian and Spanish languages pack (big thanks to TKGP!).


Absolute Nature, Atmosfear, Shoker Weapon Mod, Path in the Mist, In Spite of the Death, Valley of the Whistles, Pripyat: Breaking Point, STCoP Weapon Pack, Cubic Mini Mod, Spatial Anomaly, Call of Chernobyl, SWTC, SGM, AMK etc. Big thanks to creaters of these modifications!

Bugs and crashes

Wind of Time 1.3

If you receive an incredible amount of memory crashes, just try to start a game by using this .bat file:


Put it in main folder of modification then run it as adminisrator.


  • Problem: crash when you're being transfered to past to Limansk.
  • How to solve: when you start a new game. after conversation with Yakovlev move to Main menu and click on 'Quit game'. After that again start a new game. If it didn't help you, may be before that you hand't run a game as adminisrator. If you hadn't, please do it :)

  • Problem: crashes with logs "not enough storage", "out of memory".
  • How to solve: this crashes mean that perhaps your system is not very well (but I can make a mistake). Modification requires a lot of your computer's resources. First of all, decrease 'Grass density', transfer 'Sun quality' and 'Sun rays' to minimum. Also you may switch 'Sun shadows', It ought to improve your own FPS. If nothing helps, please put Static lighting and make minimum of 'Textures quality'.

  • Problem: installed language pack but in game everything is in Russian.
  • How to solve: if you didn't download Language pack 1.1, please do it and install, then delete file 'xrussian.db' in folder 'localization'.

  • Problem: crash when you try to change options in Main menu.
  • How to solve: try to change your options until everything will be as it should be. It can happen seldom.

  • Problem: Red Forest bridge to Limansk is not going down.
  • How to solve: perhaps you saved game, when the bridge had been going down. Try to load your last save before you pushed a button of the bridge.

  • Problem: crash with log No available phrase to say, dialog[red_lesnik_meet] or when you start to speak to Forester.
  • How to solve: probably somehow you missed a dialog with Duty member Captain Fursenko on outpost in front of the bridge. If you did. please return to this Duty post and try to talk to this dude! After you may go to speak with Forester.

If you did not find a solution of your problem, please write about your problem here, below the article. I'll try to help you as soon as possible!

Damn this game crashes a lot out of the blue (just walking somewhere or in the middle of a dialogue). This is bad. Please improve the performance or people will be scared off :(

I have another problem: when I went into the North mine I picked up all the stuffs at first time. After I spoke to technician, he gave me the quest to pick up all the stuffs. Now I cannot complete that mission because I have already done it before it was given to me!

Found a bug: in Red Forest mine controller sound doesn't go away after completig the mission and leaving the mine. Saving and reloading doesn't help either. Only quitting and reloading the game helps. Pls fix!

Interesting thing, I unpacked the db files to get to the Configs, intending to do a little tweaking just for giggles. I found that no matter where I loaded those Configs files, no changes I made with any of them had any effect whatsoever on gameplay.
I have tried having them in the Resources folder along with the db files, but no effect. I have tried having them in the main folder one level up from Resources, but again no effect.
Can anyone tell me where to paste the Configs so they can tweak gameplay?

Also, I note that the common " -dbg" addition for the target URL does not function to place the debug COP Spawn menu as with other games. What's up with that, I wonder. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

So. I put 8-core CPU and brand new GPU card into my comp, and finally I manage to finish the game. Not without crashes and some freezing, but still playable.
Now, I found something in the game - bug or whatever, doesn't matter - wich will help you guys, to make free money, so many as you ready to click right-left mouse buttons.
There is two artifacts: "Beads" and "Cross", you can find them in anomalies in Red forrest and Yantar AND in some cashes (you will find at least 4 of them, I found six). After you finish two quests for scientists in Rostok (kill poltergeists and find documents in x19 lab) sell them to German, then rebuy them from him - difference in price is on your side (not big one but significant). Do it as much time as you want: sell 'em them buy 'em from him again. Don't forget to press quicksave from time to time; don't sell them permanently, just keep those artifacts in blue crate across Novikov. And don't forget: sell - buy artifacts to German only AFTER you finnished two quests for Rostok scientists.

Hey guys,

Ok so I have an issue that I might have found a solution for (in which I will edit this post if it worked or not) but I would like to get opinions of other people that might be sitting with the same crap.

Every once in a while my game completely freezes to a point where I have to result in Task Manager to close the game. During this freeze there is no sound loop or .exe error. It's just a random freeze at random times. It's very difficult to close it via Task Manager as the game is blocking my view but with some keyboard play I get it right.

I saw some comments already regarding graphics settings because the game can only go to a maximum of 4GB of RAM due to its engine but that's not the case here as my settings are on Medium for that exact reason.

The solution that I've been talking about at the start worked for 2 people with the exact same issue. And that is to change the settings to DX9 or DX10 instead of DX11 as the engine doesn't really support it.

The other solution is to disable Dynamic Music in the menu. I will edit this post shortly to let everyone know if it worked or not.

It can't be Software or Hardware related because I jump between Wind of Time, Dead Air, MISERY and Last Day with no issues at all except for Wind of Time.
