Jeff is a mean boss
28th July 2002
Maybe it just me... but I have had one crash (caused by my anti-virus I believe) and haven't encountered a single game ending or even really annoying bug.
I see lots of people posting about having a lot of bugs and crashes and the game is near unplayable.
Am I the only one who isn't encountering any of this??
I have the North American DVD version BTW patched to 1.5.04, bought at Gamestop.
I haven't had a single crash yet and I went to dark valley 9 times and am currently am in agroprom underground. And I'm using the D2D version of the game too.
Here no problems either :) Only error I got was that 'could not find fsgame.ltx;, but that was my own fault :P Russian 220.127.116.11 version.
Well I had tons of issues with Russian Retail v1.00 But now that I'm using 1.5.04 everything seems fine. I'm past Garbage area now and I've also been to Dark Valley numurous times, circled all around Cordon, Garbage and such going back and forth through levels. Not major issues yet. Also now that I installed XP PRO (SP2) fresh on another drive and am running minimal other things, this game has improved how it plays on my machine, ALOT. So yeah I'm having fun now, finally.
Normally 80% of the crashes and bugs that users report are their own fault. Do you notice exactly why it's their fault?? They mention that they run control panel settings, have a tweaked computer, OCed CPU and graphics card. I am running a normal system and disabled control panel and I'm doing great so far.
They also probably have alot of crap running in the backround too that they may or may not know about. And most people never defrag their HD either. I don't mind helping people but so many of these folks want to just blame it on the game and think their windows setup is perfect.

Yup. All my crashes were my own fault. My first play through I didn't get any. When I started messing around with the files, was when I started getting crashes. And they were just typos or me forgetting to edit a file.
On a normal system, with normal settings, running the retail UK version with 1.504, it plays without a hitch.
On my first playthrough I had A LOT of CTDs and Bugtraps. Then I installed the AI respawn fix and no more problems!
On second playthrough, modded [more accurate pistols, fair trade 1.0b, 200 kg carry load, more powerful artifacts], no problems and i'm close to finishing again but since there aren't any traders in Limansek I'm not going there. I want to find a GP37 and FTM200 before I go further in the ending where there is kind of 'no turning back.'
you know you would have thought that they would run some tests before they would release the game or some thing
I have Gotten both SOC and CS games shortly after the release date ( most likly the will be the v1.0 ) I didn't get much crashes, for SOC I was able to play the game many times, beat it many times with out crashing and other times with it, I look at it as a stalker game thing now.. as for CS I had a few crashes, but the bug trap caught it everytime, so the computer never froze up. and was able to continue. I finished the game I didn't see anymore glitches than SOC really....well the enemy didn't die half in a wall doing the jitterbug anyway like they do in SOC from time to time... I think its more picky than preformance. I mean one will complain about why do we now have cats in the game, I may complain that the AI act like super machines and the list grows..Lack of profection leading to being picky I think..
