hi guys, im really having problem with my computer compatibility. Here it goes

Im playing STALKER since SoC and from that first series, my computer video card is not really up to it i think. The major problems are the low FPS and the sky is too bad(i will post a screenshot later let you see how "my" sky is) even if i put the config to the lowest. But those problem solved when i installed Oblivion Lost ULTIMATE mod. I have higher FPS and great sky (after that only i know just why people say the game is really atmospheric) even with high video config.

So i was thinking, will the same problem solved if i install graphic mod to the other 2 series ? (CS and CoP), I dont know.

SO my question is ? any1 of u can help me for that ?? many thanks

EDIT : ok so i dont know how to get a screenshot...another help pls ??

Well, first off: The information we are about to give is for PC. So, if you are not using a Windows OS, then ignore the rest of this post. Otherwise, please continue...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't know how a person can not know how to get a screenshot... On your keyboard is a key called "PRT SCRN" or "PRT SCR." It's short for "Print Screen." You push that, then go to a program like MS Paint and hit ctrl+V. Boom... There's your screenshot.

STALKER: SoC also has its own key for taking screenshots. Just look at the key config under "Options" for such. Don't know about Clear Sky or Call of Pripyat, but it should be the same deal.

All of this is either basic knowledge, common sense, or both. That's why we don't get how you could not know all this... But there are novices even amongst us "regular computer users." So it's not *that* unexpected, or even that unusual. :)

The default key for screenshots is F12. The screenshots go into the screenshots folder in the STALKER-SHOC, STALKER-STCS, and the other stalker (for me cop is S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Çîâ Ïðèïÿòè) folder. Use windows to search for it. The folder will appear after you take your first screenshot. To get rid of the sky problem in cs and shoc try making a desktop shortcut and add the line XR_3DA.exe -gpu_nopure to the target. You really only need the -gpu_nopure though. Call of pripyat doesn't seem to support dx8 so you may be in trouble. And apparently the command lines don't work in it. http://i456.photobucket.com/albums/qq282/burger/xr3da.jpg

Uuhhh... Yeah... You don't need the "XR_3DA.exe" thing because that's the file SoC loads from. So, unless the other S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games use the same name for their .exe, you definitely don't need that. >_>

Sicoy: Did you read the rest of our post where we talked about SoC having its OWN screenshot key? Because your post suggests you didn't... If you read that, along with what eeeeddd37 said, you should be able to take screenshots.

Yeah, we didn't know where it was ourself till eeeeddd37 said it. XD But we also have never taken screenshots before. ^^; Though, even if we did, because we have XFire, we can use that for screenshots if we want to. We thought of suggesting that, but only after we made sure about the F12 thing. After all, it would require signing up for XFire and downloading it if you don't already have it. ;x And we like to avoid suggesting to people to get extra programs that aren't really necessary if at all possible... :3

Anyways, thanks eeeeddd37. :D You helped the both of us out. XD
