I'm stuck in the Dark Valley - no matter where I go, after about 3 minutes, the game crashes to desktop. I'm only trying to do some faction wars - it's really not much to ask!

Looks like I have to start again...

I had a similar problem, try some of the community fixes.

i crashed to desktop alot, no error. my fix, open you PC up and let it cool better. took my side panel off and had no more crashes to desktop. had a few bugs still but those are far between.

make sure you are not runing any other programs in the back ground as well.

good luck

I play on a Geforce 6150 SE on very very low, and it crashes more often, even if the RAM is sufficient. You are more likely to have problems running Stalker on a computer with a weaker video card... I'm looking into upgrading the video since the CPU and RAM is already high.

The only thing that puzzles me is when you go and buy a pc from a retail store. Regardless of how powerful the computer is, they purposely put weaker video cards in to save budget and use their old stock... >.

I can run the game on high quality - but I chose to run it on low with all features turned off. I checked my temperature, and it's barely shifting from when I'm not playing the game compared to idling. I doubt it's a heat issue... Especially considering it's only happening in the Dark Valley level. :/

I got a 3500+, 3 gigs of OCZ ram and a 512mg 8800GT and i was very surprise that i can run it on maximum with everything (except AA) turned way up. Most none game related errors occur either due to system negligence, heat, or drivers.
