Ok... It has been a month... a month that I spent $35 to get STALKER and I can't play through the first 2 minutes of the game without horrible BSOD.
Where is the patch for the ATI high end video cards?
It is getting pretty upset... I can't return the game and can't play it either.
I realize mine is no longer high end (x800pro) but first time i played with dynamic lighting i got a BSOD, then i downloaded latest drivers and lowered the game detail, aint had a problem with it since. Have you checked the ATI site in the troubleshooting? As with graphics problems the fixes could come from either game developer or in this case those make the drivers.
it would be nice to have system specs...
SYSTEM SPECS: DELL XPS / Gen 4 / 3.8 ghz processor / ATI x1950 512mb video card / SoundBlaster Audigy X2 / Windows XPsp2 / 4gb ram
Another thread referencing my issues :
dont blame it on ati or gsc... sysspec here: c2d, 2 gb ram, ati 1950xt 1280*768, everything on over-max (tweaked user.ltx), full-dyn. no lags and no framedrops below 25fps nowhere. no bosd ever too. sometimes (verry rarely) game become verry slow, but a vid_restart fixes it within 10 sec.
Can you email me your files and tweaks? (and instructions)
wat is BSOD?? lol personally i dont have problems playin the game even thou my graphics is Radeon Geforce X300 if thats wat i remember and i can only play at low settings :( only lag when lots of flame anomalies come out or jus loaded a map
Check your log at x:\documents and settings\All users\Documents\STALKER-SHOC\logs\
It should show an error at the end of your log, and my guess it says something like "[error][ 1450] : Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.".
This is a known bug with ATI cards, there is as far as I know no fix for it yet.
TweakGuides.com - STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl Tweak Guide tweakguides.com is a real good site to find out how to tweak games... i included my user.ltx as an attachment non the less, but as i my settings will proberbly not help you. better try to customise your game to your own needs. have fun mb
