Q - How should I patch my game

A - Patch to 1.503 first, then 1.504.

This is incorrect. There is only one patch available from the official site and thats because it includes the earlier one. GSC have never said patches are incremental and they never were with the SSOC patches.
if you're going to sticky stuff - get it right.

Actually he is right. Patching to 1.5.04 directly results in a CTD whenever you try to start the game. Patching to 1.5.03 then to 1.5.04 removes the crashing.
---END QUOTATION---



Through issues unrelated to this game (new hardware and OS installations) I have installed this game afresh repeatedly over the past week on both XP and Vista. Patching from retail version directly to 1.504 caused me no problems or CTDs aas you describe. I stand by my original comments.

The only startup problems I've seen came as a result of creating my own desktop shortcut directly from the xrengine.exe

Install a Carry mod or weight mod & it will be there. The gamedata directory is only used for mods, so it's not automatically created.

Move to Garbage fixed!

I'm damned if I can find this file, let alone \gamedata\configs

Move to Garbage fixed!

For those getting CTDs when tryng to move to Garbage from Cordon or Dark Valley:

I found this on GameFaqs, have tested it & it works! Was able to get into Garbage from Cordon & Dark Valley, no problem:

in your file...

S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky\gamedata\configs\system.ltx

add "script_binding = bind_level_changer.bind" w/o ""

on line #197 or after ...

[level_changer]
GroupControlSection =
$spawn = "ailevel changer"
;$prefetch = 4
class= LVL_CHNG
script_binding = bind_level_changer.bind

problem - many CTD during mission with Leffy`s goup in Yantar

Possible solution - the way it worked for me:

After dozen of try i have decided to abbandon this mission (awaiting patch to fix it), so I start traveling betwean all location, "shooting dogs", collecting artifacts, finnished 2 side quest, done 1 weapon upgrade - no patches, reinstall, fixes. After 3-4 hours of gameplay overall i given it a try and it worked - no CTD.
Possible explanation - something has changed in scenario (after side quest), changes in equipment, upgrade, mayby loot collected - anyhow it works now.

Q

Problem getting to Cordon from Swamps

i had the "cant get to" (Cordon in my case) problem when i started the Swamps quests.

i have no idea if this will be applicable to the other travel problems which i have seen people posting about.

-----

A after starting the game again i made it my only goal to protect the Southern Village which is where the guide will take you to Cordon.

eventually i got the needed offer of "meet the guide to go to Cordon".

when i first played and couldnt leave the Swamps the guide was present but that offer hadnt appeared and there wasnt an arrow showing at Cordon to get _back into_ the Swamps.

my problem seems to only have been that i was running around trying to complete whatever was the nearest quest. the Clear Sky were fine by themselves completing the takeovers of various positions.

so, protect the travel point sucessfully the first time round.

failing the takedown of the travel point is not ok. im guessing that it was a special instance of the guide that you get to travel with to go to the next area.

if he dies, he might be being replaced by a guide that cant take us to the next area.

i could then get into Cordon and back again, which i had to do because the Military at that travel point were killing me instantly. i could also travel without the guide since then.

the Southern Village was invaded twice and i was without backup since they were all fighting the Fishing Hamlet and so on. while i was waiting for the other points to be taken over i also went to the Church.

there is also time to assist with the Renegade base in the Machinery Yard.

im not sure if its vital but i kept my eye on the map for when there were the first Clear Sky in the Southern Village. i hope this works for others having the problem and that i havent just got lucky :\

Moderators please delete the spam to make this thread usefull.

Problem.

Game hangs in the load screen where it says "Client: Synchronizing..." and therefore fails to start a new game, only option is to terminate it using the task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL).

Possible solution.

Step 1: Go into the sound options, if you have "Generic hardware" or your soundcard is selected select "Generic software" instead and disable EAX.

Step 2: Exit the game to save these changes, relaunch the game and it should load successfully, if it still doesnt try to drop the video settings and resolution to the minimum too.
