I just tried changing it in the console ingame to no avail

I even lowered all the possible graphics settings to low, and I noticed the slider was all the way down, and I STILL have high quality shadows...

In the options screen, choose a lower render setting, such as 'objects dynamic lighting', and the sun shadow and the lighting distance sliders will be active, adjust sliders to where you want them, and then choose to use these setttings.
Then change your render option to what you want mine is the dx10 option, and choose to use this setting. These two settings will be unusable but will be where you previously set them. Enjoy.

Hey that actually worked! Thanks a ton.

Chalk that one up to another bug, which they are probably aware of so fixed the UI so you couldn't adjust it and crash the game.

Go to your Public/My Documents/STALKER-STC/ folder and open the user.ltx files.

Look for the lines relating to shadow quality and edit it as appropriate.

As I said in the OP, I already tried that, but then the game crashes upon loading.

No, it was always stuck as soon as I installed.

Can't change shadow quality.

..,
I believe this to be because of the shadow quality being 'stuck' on the highest setting. There is no way to move the slider.

I even went into the user.ltx file to change r2_ls_squality 1. to r2_ls_squality .5 but then the game keep crashing upon loading.

was it stuck from when you first installed or did you raise it and then it was stuck?

before you start patching or reinstalling to try and get it running again grab a copy of your savegames and put them somewhere safe.

Can't change shadow quality.

I have an issue. When I face a certain direction like open marsh land, I get 100+ fps. As soon as I turn around to face the camp, it goes down to 25-ish.

I believe this to be because of the shadow quality being 'stuck' on the highest setting. There is no way to move the slider.

I even went into the user.ltx file to change r2_ls_squality 1. to r2_ls_squality .5 but then the game keep crashing upon loading.

Is there any way to change the shadow quality?
