Pretty great so far.
Couple of crashes in the last 40min or so I played which isn't too good but this is an early release.
Running pretty smoothly on an i5, 8GB RAM and 7970Ghz with everything maxed at 1080p.

But whatever you do don't max out the grass density, the amount of grass is absolutely insane and is probably going to slow down even the most powerful of setups. You don't need to turn it down too much to get a lot of frames back.

But yeah, really great. I mean, I guess it goes without saying it's the best mod for the game in my opinion considering the sheer amount of new content.
I look forward to playing this game for a looooong time.

No crashes yet so far. Can't believe how taxing the graphics are. But then again I'm not using the latest and greatest (ati 7850) I'm getting 30-40 FPS in DX 9 mode with lower grass shadow and sunshafts.

Not good, honestly.

The game runs pretty meh for me, even on gimped medium settings. Any attempt to run lighting any higher than static results in a white skybox, everything overly bright, and terrible FPS. Right now my FPS is not doing great either, aiming feels very sluggish and "drunk" The game crashes for me, getting a lot of shadow pop in too for graphics.

I'd love to play the game but simply cannot yet. I'll try to play on absolutely lowest settings to see if i get a performance boost (even though my computer should be able to handle this game no problem on very high/max).

Will probably go back to vanilla stalker for a while until the game has patches to make it stable for me.

So far, no problems. Install smooth, LA started right up. No crashes so far, but only on 3rd mission. 60 fps on i7 2600 K @ 4.4 Ghz, Geforce 780i maxed out, unlike StalkerSoup, which doesn't ramp up the Turbo all the way. BEAUTIFUL graphics.

Is there a walkthrough yet?

Great to see LA is here, and it arrives with the promise of more to come (fixes & even mod tools).

Started up fine on an old virtualized test rig, Win7 x64 8G DDR3 Phenom II x2 @4 GHz. Must move the install to one of the better rigs, as the NVidia 8600 GT is just too weak.

I've played an hour or so on cordon. The voice acting is good, the map is expansive, detailed & atmospheric. It is a little buggy and the installer is janky, but i understand that this is a rushed, unplanned release.

It was worth the wait and i wonder what else team dezowave was planning to do before sending out the game to us. This unplanned build is better than some full releases.

I haven't enjoyed stalker like this in years.

It's good to be back in the zone.

The game is amazing, the cinematics at the start look very professional and in a cool style represented. Graphics are stunning even if i turned them down to medium. Gameplay is cool, already finished a couple of quests in Cordon. No bugs found yet. No CTD's.

Great work dez's team!
