How the thread works

- Only solutions, or discussions working towards solutions, should be listed here.

- Requests for fixes/solutions, bug reports, complaints, flaming and other topics of conversation raised will likely be deleted by the moderators.

- Bug reports should be posted here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16581&sec_id=19

- This thread is NOT official, nor supported by GSC/Deepsilver. Use any recommendations at your own risk.

- This thread is not monitored, and is probably not even looked at, by GSC/Deepsilver, so posting rants and complaints here is pointless.

- If you are posting solution please keep them as brief as possible. If there's an existing thread that deals with the solution(s) please post it here.

- If possible list as many solutions as you can to one post, to limit the number of pages users need to search through.

Thanks



Questions and solutions


Where can I get the latest patches?

http://stalker.deepsilver.com/patches.php?lang=eng


Whats the latest patch? When is the next coming out? What problems are being addressed?

The latest patch (as of 24/09/2008) is 1.504 which can be found on the link above.

1.505 should be due Friday 26/09/2008. The current list of issues that will be addressed are listed here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16791&sec_id=18


Will my savegames be compatible with 1.505?

No-one knows yet, though its highly unlikely. 1.503 and 1.504 were not compatible with older saves, and given the shear amount of changes proposed in 1.505 many users can see older save games not working this time round.


Are there any unofficial patches or Mods?

There is EyesOfARaven's Unofficial Patch for 1.5.04 . What it fixes and the latest version can be found here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16809&sec_id=19


I get loads of Crash to Desktop (CTD's), can you help?

Though some will hopefully be solved by the next 1.505 patch, you might want to check out EyesOfARaven's Unofficial Patch for 1.5.04 - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16809&sec_id=19


I want to back up my savegames, where are they located?

The default location for savegames is here - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\STALKER-STCS\savedgames


People are talking about 'editting a user.itx file'. Where is it, and how do I edit it?

The user.itx is located here - C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\STALKER-STCS

You can open and edit it in Notepad. Its recommended you backup your user.itx before tweaking it, in case something goes wrong


I'd like to tweak my game so it runs at the best speed possible, but with the best graphics possible. How should I tweak it?

Each PC is different, but if you want to tweak your games performance then it's highly recommended you go here - http://www.tweakguides.com/ClearSky_1.html


How do I reduce stutter? What is the '-noprefetch' command? How does it improve performance?

No prefetching is a command you can do that may help games load faster and reduce in-game stuttering, though it does not work for everyone (and may even increase stuttering for some!). I personally have noticed no difference, but it can help some people.

Read up on it here - http://www.tweakguides.com/ClearSky_9.html


How do I skip the introduction movies?

You can either press 'esc' to skip each time, or remove them entirely. Explained how here - http://www.tweakguides.com/ClearSky_10.html


My card is capable of Pixel Shaders 3.0, yet I get an error message and crash saying 'does not support pixel shaders 1.1'?

Dont turn SSOA to 'High'. You can have it on 'Disabled', 'Low' or 'Medium' and you won't get that crash. Thread is here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=5&thm_id=16790&sec_id=19


I cant see Fences or camoflage

This is a known problem, but as yet is unresolved. Please use this thread to monitor for a solution - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16449&sec_id=19


I get odd Sun Shadow effects. I get a clear shadow/sun divide, and my shadow textures seem distorted.

This is a known problem, but as yet is unresolved. Please use this thread to monitor for a solution - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=16449&sec_id=19


I have severe graphical problems with the sky, especially on 'Static Lighting' settings

Some solutions and workarounds are posted in this useful thread - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=1&thm_id=17037&sec_id=19


I can't find my problem on this thread? How do I search the forum?

There is no search feature on the forum. But this works - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=2&thm_id=16390&sec_id=18


**SPOILERS**


**SPOILER** Just got out of the swamps and into the Cordon. I cant get out of the tunnel without being shot down by the miltary guard tower. There is no way to get past, is this a bug?

Not a bug, but extremely hard to get past . There are two ways to get around this; the hard way, and the easy way.

Both are explained here - https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=16106&sec_id=11


**SPOILER** I was mugged in the Garbage Flea Market, and I lost all my money and equipment. How do I get it back?

It is part of the main quest, though you can get your equipment you can't get your money back. It is not a bug

For discussion, and a workaround, go here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=7&thm_id=16739&sec_id=19

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.

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.

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 :\

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.

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.

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.

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

Another Q&A. Please continue to post your solutions here.

I can't enter the Garbage!

Two solutions to try are here - https://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr2&thm_page=2&thm_id=17388&sec_id=19#241963

I've just left the swamps and i'm no longer part of the Clear Sky Faction. Is that meant to happen?

Its not a bug. The swamps is like a tutorial for the game, learning the ropes. As soon as you leave to the swamps and go to the Cordon your no longer a member of Clear Sky.
Nothing to stop you going back and joining them again though if you wish.

Fence/camo texture fix

This works for me. I posted this in the other thread, but it can't hurt to have it here too. Bear in mind this works for me - it may not help you.

Go to CCC and turn off Support for DXT texture formats in your 3d settings.
Note - other games may need this to be on, so make a profile.


I am using an ATI Radeon hd 3870 on Vista 32

Fails to start.

Despite having worked fine for a week, out of the blue and having made no configuration changes to either my system or the game, Stalker wouldn't start CTD'ing with an x-ray debug message immediately after the CD-check animated pointer.

Fixed it by installing the 1.5.04 patch atop my already patched install. This resets game options, but otherwise leaves everything else intact. Presumably a configuration file had been corrupted.

ed: Happened again. This was after a BSOD on exiting the game (I've had a couple BSODs before, but never while exiting the game). The user.ltx file was messed up--filesize was 6k but opening it shows up blank in notepad. Probably better to just back that up then instead of reinstalling the patch. I imagine this has probably been noticed before. Wish the forum had a search function, or at least one I can see anyways.

Add this command line to your shortcut:

I use that in combination with the -noprefetch command line, and I have a full skybox, and fast load times.

Go to Southern Farmstead. Shoot the guide in the face with shotgun. Kill his 4-5 lackies. (Avoid starting mass battle with now neutral Clear Sky members) Watch as Clear Sky recapture Machine Yard and send new guide to Southern Farmstead. You can now leave the swamps!

CTD poblem

I started getting so many CTD'S the game was unplayable.
So I started deleating all the error logs when I had a lot of them.
This helped the game would run for longer but still CTD.
I then started to overclock my system in BIOS.

FSB 1400mhz pushing the CPU to 3.58 ghz and the 4GB system memoury speed to 1042mhz @ 2.1v.
this seemed to help with the CTD frequency alot but it still crashed now and again.

Next I used a 8GB USB corsair flash drive set at 4GB in ready (Vista only)boost.

This is a extream solution to the problem and overclocking can destroy your computor totaly. so I won't be responsible if you try it, as all systems are different and you may ruin your machine if you do BE WARNED.

And all this may be just a coincidence and I just got lucky but I have
now been able to finnish the game without any problem.
I have also set my system back to a more resonable level before it has it's own meltdown.

The extra memory part of the solution may only help if you are using a 64bit OS as a 32 bit system has problems with using more RAM.

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY STALKING.

If you have mod probs and crashes caused by them, some of these fixes may help.



Oke before i disappoint anyone, i'll just discribe the probs here that i fixed by try and error with mods i used, but might provide insight in how to fix simular problems aswell.
And there are 5 probs which i seemed to have fixed, which are the following:

1) CRASH ON START UP
If your game crashes on startup, this usually means that something aint right with your system.ltx file in the gamedata folder under "configs".
Some changes that were made in the sytem.ltx cannot find back the info or files they need to work.
For example: In my case i was using the "S.H.A.R.P.E.R textures Full version" mod by skeleton in combination with the "Hades real gore" mod.
What happened is that the blood textures used by the system.ltx file from the "Hades real gore" mod were overwritten by the ones from the "S.H.A.R.P.E.R textures" mod, so i needed to implement the original "Hades real gore" blood textures back in the textures folder. This seemed to fix my CTD (crash to desktop) at start up .

2) CRASH IN OPTIONS MENU
If you have a CTD (crash to desktop) when you enter your options menu in the main menu this is due to the combination of some .xml files in your gamedata folder which conflict with eachother.
For example: In my case i was using the "Realism ModPack v1.4 final version", what i found out was that this mod used some .xml files for the no minimap and no red dots on PDA mod in the UI folder, which were "zone_map.xml", "maingame.xml" and another one which i forgot (something with UI_....xml).
As you noticed, each of those has a copy .xml file with "16" in it.
What i found out is that if you combine those .xml files with their copies with the "16" in it, the game crashed when entering the options menu.
Iam not sure which of those three combinations triggered it, but since i didn't need that part of the mod i left them all three out.
P.S: iam not sure if this is fixed in the Realism ModPack v2.0, you'll have to find that out yourself .

3) CRASH WHILE LOADING SAVE GAME
If you have a CTD when you finished loading (client synchronising) any kind of save game you have or when your screen turns black after loading, or your load screen is stuck at client synchronising but you hear the background playing, then this can only mean one thing: You have 2 mods active that are in conflict with eachother.
I have no real fix for this, so you'll have to find out if you have 2 mods that use the same files like system.ltx, weapons.ltx, outfit.ltx,.... in which case you can either manually type in the changes in that file for both mods or you can delete one of both mods.
In my case i couldn't combine the "Nondegrading armor and extra armour features" mod + the "Full upgrades for armors and weapons mod v1.0" since they both did something to my outfit.ltx file and i couldn't give the changes in manually so i had to delete the second mod.
I also had two files called Trader_trader.ltx and Trade_generic.ltx, these seemed to conflict with my Fair trade mod v1.1 so i needed to delete them both.
P.S: make sure you allway's delete old files from mods you aint using nomore when you install new mods, i made that mistake too and it's a common cause for this problem .

4) CHANGES IN SETTINGS DON'T APPLY, EVEN AFTER RESTART
If you have problems with applying changes in settings and they don't apply even after you restart your game, then this is mostly due to a Mod pack that requires to make a new game. I found out that the "Realism ModPack v1.4 Final version" i use requires to make a new game each time you change a setting, this is very strange though.
But i found out if i install the mods in the mod pack seperately that the settings CAN be changed but what you have to do is apply your changes ingame or in your mod files, make a new savegame ingame and then restart the game and load your new savegame.
This is cause else the game will apply the settings used in the last save game, so in some cases the new setting won't load with the old savegame and the old setting get loaded.

5) FACTION WARS BUGS
Last problem is with the "faction wars" mod from Chakky (which is also in the "Realism ModPack v1.4 final version" .
If you experience some bugs with his mod then i simply suggest to go download "Lucian's Clear Sky Modification Medley" mod pack (found in the Mod Download section) and install the faction wars from that mod pack + download his patch for the faction war in his mod pack.
These pretty much fixed it all, allthough some minor issues are still in there, but it's the best working faction wars mod that i got atm .

The last thing S:CS tried to load was something around the openAL region.

Go to C:\Windows\System32
Copy OpenAL32.dll
Paste into C:\Program Files (x86)\Deep Silver\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Clear Sky\bin

ENJOY! YAY!

Only some details are seen in the game, the rest is black when using dynamic lighting (occours mostly with 1.5.05)

If your setup is a SLI system try set SLI to use only one GPU.
It worked fine for me!

Cursor cannot access all areas of the menu after game is launched.

Problem: You launch the game but you cannot access all areas of the starting menu. It seems like something is holding back your mouse from moving the cursor to the borders of the menu. It's so bad that you cannot move your cursor over the "load game" tab to get into the game.

Solution: Make sure your "desktop resolution" matches your "in-game resolution". Quit the game, change your desktop resolution and relaunch Clear Sky.

Hold point until reinforcements arrive glitch at Machine Yard (can't leave swamps)

Go to Southern Farmstead. Shoot the guide in the face with shotgun. Kill his 4-5 lackies. (Avoid starting mass battle with now neutral Clear Sky members) Watch as Clear Sky recapture Machine Yard and send new guide to Southern Farmstead. You can now leave the swamps!
---END QUOTATION---


That didn´t worked for me i tried it not 1 but 2 times,and nothing!!
I only got rid of that problem,starting the game over,wenting to Cordon as soon as it went opened and went back(becoming neutral to Clear Sky).

pixel shader 1.1 error

I had that msg with a SOC mod found that I had to remove mod with SMM, delete the source folder unzip the mod afresh, reinstalled into SMM after 'modifier' changes and just for good measure replaced User.ltx with a clean install before startup copy, though it may not have been necessary afterall.

Possible fix for any performance or ram issues

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

This program is called process explorer, it is an in depth program showing
the background processes, I was able to delete some additional processes that have increased my computer running the game enough to mention here.

Question, where can I download the float 32 mod for soc and cs, the floating point is down, I have read float 32 can improve the performance while making the zone look a lot better.

CTD poblem

I started getting so many CTD'S the game was unplayable.
So I started deleating all the error logs when I had a lot of them.
This helped the game would run for longer but still CTD.
I then started to overclock my system in BIOS.

FSB 1400mhz pushing the CPU to 3.58 ghz and the 4GB system memoury speed to 1042mhz @ 2.1v.
this seemed to help with the CTD frequency alot but it still crashed now and again.

Next I used a 8GB USB corsair flash drive set at 4GB in ready (Vista only)boost.

This is a extream solution to the problem and overclocking can destroy your computor totaly. so I won't be responsible if you try it, as all systems are different and you may ruin your machine if you do BE WARNED.

And all this may be just a coincidence and I just got lucky but I have
now been able to finnish the game without any problem.
I have also set my system back to a more resonable level before it has it's own meltdown.

The extra memory part of the solution may only help if you are using a 64bit OS as a 32 bit system has problems with using more RAM.

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY STALKING.

since this is a _g.script error (which can come up for various reasons), the line of interest is above the fatal error line, unfortunately you didn't post it. Without it the error message is useless.

Clear Sky CTD when loading save game

Hi, this are my setup
Windows 7
QX9650 (non overclock)
HD5970 (non overclock) driver 10.9
SB Audigy 2 ZS Window 7 default driver + OpenAL driver from creative openAL site (http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/Forms/AllItems.aspx)

4 Gb Ram
2T HDD

Been playing clear sky with the latest 1.5.10 patch work well till i reach cordon. All my save games will CTD but starting a new game is ok. And loading the auto_save from the new game is ok too.

Beat me! Really like the game but i can't continue or want to start a new game just to encounter the problem again.

All other games run perfectly.

Problem: I am getting persistent CTDs, hangs or black screens even after installing both the latest official patch v1.5.10 and your community patch. I have Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2670838) installed.

Solution: Uninstall Update for Microsoft Windows (KB2670838).

Problem: I am running Windows 8 and get a black screen if I try to change any settings or start a new game.

Solution: Navigate to your Clear Sky root directory, open the 'bin' folder, right-click xrEngine.exe, and select 'Properties'. In the 'Compatibility' tab, check the box next to 'Run this program as an administrator', then accept the changes.

Hey!
Yes you can run Clear Sky on your system,but only in R1 render mode (Static Lighting) because your on board vga (video card) is too poor for R2 render (Full Dynamic Lighting DX9 ) or R3 render (Full Dynamic Lighting DX10)
To run Clear Sky on maxed settings,you must buy a dedicated video card like Nvidia GTX 660 or better.

So let me detail my problem:

I run the installing on my notebook with a original DVD of the game. Then the setup shows a red bar on the specification of the video card, meaning that the video card is not compatible, but i can go foward and complete the instaling. But when i try to run the game, a window says that the game can't run because my plataform is x64. How can I solve this problem?

The game works on x64 platform,be sure you have installed all 3rd party programs like Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 & 2008 SP1,Net Framework 3.5 (in Windows 8.1 you must install them manually),then update your DirectX 9.0c
