Some problems

Hi to all, i hope to be posting in the right thread!
I want to report some problems i found with Particle paradise 2.1.1.9x Particles.

First my problem: CTD when starting new game


---QUOTATION---
FATAL ERROR

[error]Expression : fatal error
[error]Function : CRender::texture_load
[error]File : E:\stalker\patch_1_0004\xr_3da\xrRender\Texture.cpp
[error]Line : 295
[error]Description : <no expression>
[error]Arguments : Can't find texture 'pfx\pfx_bubble_effect1'


stack trace:
---END QUOTATION---

This is with soc 1.0004. I had former tried with soc 1.0005 (then uninistalled and tried with 1.0004).
My specs: win7x64, sapphire 5850 (cata 11.4), core2duo e6300, asus p5b deluxe wifi ap, ram 2*2 gb team elite, samsung spinpoint F3 1 TB. No OC.

I had tested PP3 in COP and no issues found.

Then i report some slowdowns in 2 configurations of some other stalkers. They have tried with PP 2.1.1.9x + Autumn Aurora (i must say that screens posted with this two mods in combination are absolutely awesome! ). I report what they said to me:
The problem is mainly in Pripyat, it seems that sometimes the GPU doesn't work well, in the parking underpass the GPU was at 5% load with 3 fps, and then he should change level to return to 60fps. If he pull out the PP, loading the savegame in the Pripyat parking started @ 60 fps with no slowdowns...

In addition he tested some memory use in the travel from Pypyat to Red Forest:
Aurora+Particles max Vram 700MB, max RAM occupied by game 3GB (starts from 2,5)
Only Aurora max Vram 750MB, max RAM occupied by game 2,5GB (start from 2,25)
This @max details (i think @ 1600*900).

The pc of this test is this: Asus P6T Deluxe, i7 920 step C0 @2,67 Ghz, RAM 3x2gb DDR3 1600 Mhz 8-8-8-24 Corsair Dominator,Seagate 7200.11 2x500gb raid 0, VGA Zotac GTX 570,Vista Ultimate 64bit
dunno which soc version

The other PC that has had similar problems, with soc 1.0004:
asus p7p55d pro, core i5 750, xfx hd 5850, ocz 4GB kit 2*2GB ddr3-1600 obsidian xtc value cas9, ssd:intel X25-M 80 GB, hd:2x western digital sataII 320 GB RE3 16Mb 7200rpm, windows 7 home premium 64 bit

We all have used the version found @ moddb.

I don't know if this is known, and i'm sorry if can't be more precise, hope this helps.
Sorry for the long post!

@L0n3r (nice name )

Its is detailed enough bro

i think your issue is that you downloaded the wrong version, i already fixed that bug, but still the moddb servers did not safe the newer file on their servers. try DLing it again, from the filefront mirror and moddb, one of them needs to be the newer updated version.

And i got the lag issues too yeah, i need to make the particles less strong, they are really extreme on some people their GPU. i will enhance the particles and update the build.

Thanks, also for the moddb friendship!
I have dl it from a american mirror (i don't remember wich one ), the file is different and it works! The fikefornt mirror has the version that caused me the CTD. Anyway i have performance problems even @cordon (the gpu load is considearably lower than vanilla). Well better anyway! I'll look for next release!

Thats the crysis system, my pc is:

Intel Quad Q9550 @3.41GHz
3x2 GB DDR2 1066 corsair mem
ASUS P5q Deluxe
Nvidia GTX260 Black Edition (same specs as a GTX275)

Thats it. The other is:

Intel Quad Q9550 @3.41GHz
2x2 GB DDR2 1066 corsair mem
ASUS P5n-t Deluxe Nvidia 720i SLI chip
Nvidia SLi GTX275 OC Twin Frozr (2x)

But the last one will be upgraded to an i7 950 or 980, with more mem and maybe a DX11 card. Like the GTX590 or HD6950

Is/will this modification be compatible with Complete 2009? I know that Autumn Aurora uses Particles Paradise, but I much prefer the look and feel of Complete 2009 and would rather use Particles Paradise with that. If it's not currently compatible, is it something simple as a merging of the two particle.xr files or does it require way more work than that?
