Need assistane with something small.

Hi there. I recently decided to get back into S.T.A.L.K.E.R. For a while, it was pretty much my whole life. I have a lot of experience with modding in general, but I modded the hell out of this game.

My problem is, I'm having a fatal crash to desktop, but no log file is being generated, so I can't find out whats causing it. Any ideas on how to force the game to create a log file?

this can often happen when using a cracked NoDVD exe.


---QUOTATION---
Reconstructed NoDVD's, listed on site, have a lots of flaws - first
of all engine threads sync is broken so sometimes game crashes in situations where
original exe working normally, second problem is that game bug-tracking system
just can't be reconstructed from VM data, so there is none of it. As result any game
engine-related crash haven't any log at all.
Third thing - if npc have broken logic, on original exe is just stuck with error
message passed in log. On NoDVD game is crashing on desktop immediately without any
log, which leads to "broken" saves (in fact they are working - they just contains a npc
with broken logic in Alife radius) in many mods.

I see. Well I find that very interesting, because I always used a cracked exe, and I was always able to just CTRL-V the log data into a notepad file as soon as the game crashed.

So it is possible to get a cracked exe to produce log data?

It's a toss up as to whether or not the cracked exe produces a log file.

Are you using files from here?

I wasn't. But I just tried using one from that site, and the crash still produced no log. Any ideas?

Additional Info

Perhaps with some more information someone will be able to help me figure out exactly what's causing the crash.

The game starts up fine, and even loads fine. I'm in the Trader's bunker, and he's talking (bla bla bla), when I talk to him, the conversation progresses normally. BUT, the second I click the "Ok I'll try" button. (to end the conversation) it crashes.

Any idea what this triggers? Because it makes sense to me, that at that moment, something is triggered, and I have a problem with whatever file that is.

Cracked exe dosn't always cause crash with no error log, but it does cause it more times than with the retail exe. Easiest thing to do, is swap back to your retail exe and test again, more than likely you will get an error log then.

Also, for your interest, here are some of my experiences with blank error logs, and the advice people had as to the reasons why and the steps I took to figure it out:

[???] Crash with no Error Log - WTF???
