Hi When it comes to modding - how is Windows Vista behaving compared to Windows XP? I'm having some troubles on my new machine unpacking files into gamedata. Maybe it is a Vista thing? My old XP was very straight forward to use. But sadly, it dosn't seem to be the case anymore. Enjoy gaming - Exile

There is a special forum for modding. Please post this kind of questions there.

Real stalkers don't cheat on the game. They wait for the next patch, as this will give them an excuse to start yet another game from the beginning. :)

This is not true. Real Stalkers take an interest in the game no matter what is asked, I think your wrong in the way, your answering people's questions. I've been playing SOC for over a year. Without mods how many times can you really play it thru and be fun. I'm now playing CS and have been playing since the USA release. Mods make the game more interesting and longer lasting. You can see by my join date that i've been here a while. You just joined. Stalkers are people interested in extending game play and helping other Stalkers. Not telling them to go else where to post. Just my opinion. Not trying to start a post fight. Just think before posting one of your "go elsewhere to post" answers. :mad::mad:

Get Windows Server Datacenter edition 2008. Trust me. All the GOOD (yes good) features of Vista (such as DX10 rendering) without all the unnecessary background services. In addition Datacenter supports up to a Terabyte of RAM :P. Not sure how you can get a terabyte of RAM, but hey you can gloat to all your friends that your OS supports one Terabyte of RAM. Additionally you can support up to 256 CPU cores. Again more gloating rights :P.

I can play CS just fine on a duel core amd cpu and 2gbs of ram using XP Pro. But on my son's computer using vista. I'm using a Quad Core intell cpu and 4gbs of ram to play with the same FPS. Just my info on this matter. I think Vista is a power HOG. Love XP.

The "real stalker" was kind'a joke, as you can see from the smiley, but it is quite important to keep discussion about modded games to the forum where they belong. It is very confusing with questions if you don't know if the difficulty being asked about is because of a mod or because of a difficulty in the vanilla game. That is precisely the reason why allmost all game forums have separate forums for modded games.

(I played first ShoC and the CS since the day these games were available, and I still do in periods, but life must go on. For forums I mainly stick to the GSC forum.)

My apologies, Sun Zi. i was wrong in my reply to your post. I didn't know you were joking. I do understand the separation of modding and general threads. I enjoy reading your posts and hope ya keep coming back. Good Hunting Stalker. :cya::bows:

Hmm.. About XP or vista.. XP is great.. But it lacks DX10 and eye-candy :D

While vista has DX10 and eye-candy, It lacks the smoothness of XP..

Bottom line.. I'm getting windows 7.. XD Already got a pre-Beta one on my laptop.. It runs smoother than vista.. And it's still pre-Beta.. Can't wait to beta test it (if I can).. Waiting for RC1..

I have Vista Home Premium 32bit SP1, 320GB SATA, Intel Core 2 duo, 2GB rams and a 9800GT.. Run vista for a year without any problems or virus yet.. Small problems has been dealt with (COM Surrogate stopped working etc.).. Just google for it..
