Ok before i go indepth into my crash problems, some people experience problems with the Settings! I had it myself. If your stalker is always reseting the settings to High or what ever is defualt. Then Uninstall Stalker - Reinstall it - Do not launch it!! - Install both .04 and .05 Patches - Then run Stalker. This Fixed my problem where when i changed settings they would go back to Defualt and Fuck up the Graphics, so that all i can do is see Binoculars and blurred graphics. If you have saves with .05 patch installed...i found that my Saved Games were not Erased with the Uninstall - but i started a whole new game and it worked [COLOR=blue]fine[/COLOR] just incase. [COLOR=blue]Fine[/COLOR] Being a rather Broad word to be 100% honest. [COLOR=blue]Fine[/COLOR] = [COLOR=red]Yes[/COLOR] i can get into the game, [COLOR=red]yes[/COLOR] i can do things, [COLOR=red]and yes it still Crashes.[/COLOR] Although most people are getting CTD's im actually getting A [COLOR=blue]BSOD [Blue Screen of Death][/COLOR] Now yes i realise im running it on a laptop - but i have a Brand new top of the range [COLOR=lime]Alienware[/COLOR] lappie =p - which can handle Crysis on Very High with a great FPS:naughty:. I believe im having the same problem as everyone else but my Lappie is having its own personal fit and just crashing hardcore....But is anyone else having this [COLOR=blue]problem??[/COLOR] It occurs Randomly most times. Although i was in a swamp at some point and i picked up a mission to help some Stalkers:deal:. Every time i approached the swamp i got the horror of a repeating sound and a [COLOR=blue]wonderful Blue Screen[/COLOR]. Unhappy with seeing this screen around 8times in a row, i ventured East to a Stalker Base, and side tracked a little, and found it to be running far smoother... Until i moved to the next level where i had to save a bunch of scientist's in a base:smokin:. The first time it went well, and i was in the base clearing up the last few bandits when i got the [COLOR=blue]BSOD[/COLOR]:Puzzled:. [COLOR=red]Now its just when ever i get close to it! - I .e. move 5 steps from where i start. [/COLOR] I believe its an [COLOR=red]AI problem[/COLOR], where they are interacting and something Illegal happens. :eek: Since then i have Reinstalled the game to [COLOR=darkorange]fix[/COLOR] the Setting Error, and have Started all over again. But now when im clearing the swamp at the start of the game and i Approach the [COLOR=sienna]watchtower[/COLOR] the AI see me, and freak the game out....which gives me [COLOR=red]*You knew it*[/COLOR] .... [COLOR=blue]A BSOD!!!![/COLOR] :rofl: The Rant: I really wish game testers would actually [COLOR=blue]T[/COLOR][COLOR=red]E[/COLOR][COLOR=yellow]S[/COLOR][COLOR=darkorange]T [/COLOR]the dam game on a range of PC's not just some top of the range comps [COLOR=red]only [/COLOR]the [COLOR=red]king of Saudi could afford![/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]Stalker:Clear Sky is going to be Deep Silvers *Soldner: Secret Wars*[/COLOR] A great game with a huge amount of depth, but it only works when you have downloaded 12+ Updates! and waited 5months! :sleep: :cool:I look forward to the day it works. I would have rather waited until CHristmas:) than have the Piece of crap game i have stowed away in my cupboard collecting dust now! This is the last time i Eagerly look forward to a game and then buy a day or two after its release!! I buy a game to play it! - Not look at the cover whilst i download dam Fixes i shouldnt really need!!! :mad:
I didn't make it!
Hey Brother.. i've got an Alienware Area-51 M15x with Core 2 Extreme, Geforce 8800GTX and 4GB DDR2 and iam having the same problems..i've un-installed and patched upto 1.5 several times and its startin to p*ss me off big time..the game (when it works) is amazing BUT i'am getting a BSOD every other time i use a guide to go anywhere, also started to get them when there is a large firefight..in fact they are very random but annoying!! dont really now what to do i've turned the settings down to basic and turned off EAX but doesnt help me...so is it our Alien's...dont have any problems with any other games (Bioshock, Crysis, SHOC) Gonna give up and wait for Farcry 2 & Fallout 3 i think!!!
Ah its actually good to see someone else with the same problem. With the exact same Laptop too!
I believe we are getting the same problems as everyone else, but its just our hardware is fucking up. I am having the same BSOD as you, when i venture into Fire Fights or a fire fight is happening close by, it crashs. I still think the AI might be shooting Friendly AI or something and the game is freaking out!...It has to be something related to NPC's Firing a gun anyway!!! :confused: I'm also waiting for FarCry 2.... Im hoping the developers there don't give me the same jip! (I doudt it though)
