I recently discovered the STALKER games, amazing stuff. However, I have an annoying issue with Clear Sky. If I enable dx10 mode, then the game crashes when I'm in the game (start) menu (after a few seconds), and save games won't load. I just get a black screen, and I have to restart the game. This is an xrengine.exe crash. I have a late 2012 iMac model with Windows 7/Bootcamp, 3.4ghz i7 CPU, Geforce 680mx, 16gb ram, SSD 768gb. Windows 7 is up to date. This crash happened without using any mods.
I purchased the game on Steam.
I would greatly appreciate any help. It's a big letdown being forced to play this game in dx9..
Thanks for reading.
Can you run in DX11 mode? DX10 in Clear Sky is a known problem with some systems.
My bad...no DX11 in Clear Sky. Make sure to set resolution and then shut down the game completely. A full restart is needed to change Resolution.
Clear Sky seems to be picky about the setup for DX10.
I'm checking some other things. I've seen some problems if your game resolution is not the same as your desktop resolution.
I gotta agree, In maxed out dx 9 I find CS and COP look great and the difference you get is miniscule. My last pc struggled a bit dx11 maxed if it was a big mod, So I used dx9 maxed and unless I stand and stare at a puddle in the rain I'd say there's very little in it.
There's been posts all over the place about Nvidia issues lately, Maybe it needs a driver tweak then it will all be good again.

Fullscreen mode AND "Enhanced Dynamic Lighting of Objects" = black screen
Fullscreen mode AND "Dynamic Lighting of Objects" = no crash
Windowed mode AND "Enhanced Dynamic Lighting of Objects" =no crash
It worked months ago, I am 100% sure because I didn't change my settings since I have played the game months ago. I can imagine that something in the Windows software has been changed by updates, maybe DirectX or something like that, I don't know.
