Ok first off i wanted to say i really dig the first game. i have been playing it since it came out. REALLY pumped about this one, could not wait.
here we go; the start of the game was SO slow, died all the time tripping into radioactive junk.
can not run for CRAP!
can not carry hardly and weight.
in Dark Valley the damn Freedom guards at the entrances SHOOT ME for no reason. I am on friendly status with them. I have NEVER shot at them. i have to go around and come in thru Cordon to get in and outa there.
Now game is UNPLAYABLE! i am REALLY pissed now. After going underground near the research institute the game crashes to desktop with NO ERROR, got outa the tunnles and it STILL CRASHES!
this is really pissing me off.
PATCH! WE NEED A PATCH!
Patches are on their way. I hope... Anyways start from here, DL some mods: Stalker Download Files, Download Stalker Patches - FileFront.com I would recommend this one, it is good one, but it mods only slightly: EasyStart - DetectorMod 1.5.04, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Singleplayer When you get close to someones base, at least first, i would recommend to put your guns away, as they get agro if you run around their base with your arsenal in your hands. Wouldn't you too?

Well, he can carry more than enough for being able to sprint all the time - carrying a load to match the most hardy of special forces guys at speeds that would threaten Olympic sprinters! It just feels slow. If there was a realism mod then weight would probably effect stamina more than it does and you wouldn't run as fast by far. Still, I think a jetpack would be most useful for reaching all the reinforcement missions in time - especially in the swamp at the beginning!
As for the Freedom guys - Listen to them when you enter the map. When he tells you to stand still and holster your weapon, he means it.
I agree. I'm not any kind of "physical" guy and i tried same as 10 years ago in army. Backpack and other stuff around 20kg and then you'll have to march 25kms in 4 hours. Not a big deal, but nowadays i'm in too poor fit. And running with that shitload on back? Yeah, maybe jogging some 100m... Back on my armytimes it was bit different... Well i have shot accidentally some folks, especially Duty, and then there's full war after that. Duty guys don't know words accident and sorry :)
I've got the guy sprinting at roughly 12m/s (as accurately as can be determined). That means he makes the new Jamaican superstar 100m sprinter look really slow - Scar can do 100m in 8.3 seconds or so, and keep going for marathon like distances if he carries a measly 49.9kg! (As in, double the amount for a single person to lift in UK health and safety laws)
Closure: Scar is probably kin of some Marvel Super Hero, just without neat flames in his hands or something :)
I didn't make it!

Too late for that, I'm on my 3rd run through, and playing with some custom scripts... Next up is to bring back freeplay (and import the Bar/Wild Territory??) Don't hold your breath for a release. I'm not sure what I'm doing. :D
Anything is always better nothing :) Wish you luck!!
well i am NOT restarting the game. i just went back a few saves, lost bout a day and half in game time, but thats better than a total restart.
as buggy as the first one was i keep saves OFTEN! make hard saves when everything is going well, game is behaving, so when shit happens i can go back. game is running smooth now. i will make more saves when and IF i go under ground again.
guess i need to ease off those Freedom goons. wonder if that was my prb, but still they were GREEN to me, friendly status and they still smoked me.
kinda sad, game JUST came out... well before it came out there was a patch and now a second, and there needs to be more. to bad they didnt fix it better before the release.
