I can´t open my bloody gamedata with notepad, wordpad, or anything else, ideas people? Or maybe at least some ice cream?

Are you talking about a gamedata folder from a mod or the gamedata.db files? The latter have to be extracted first.
The db. files. I managed to get into the db9 folder and change bunch of things, but i can´t find the actor.ltx

well if you do that way, you will kill the game. unpack the db files, and search for the actor.ltx at the config\creatures folder.
Well, screenshots? How do i do that? I´m actually so stupid that i need step by step... :bawl:
I didn't make it!
Hope this helps...use dbex_rel_en to extract your db files...extract them to a different folder!! Since you modified the existing db, I would advise you to start from scratch and re-install the game, then unpack the db files (again...to a different folder). After re-installing it, modify the file fsgame.ltx file found in the "programfiles/thq/Stalker" directory. Open this file with a text editor and find the following line: $game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata Change the false to true, i.e.: $game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
This will make the game look for your modified files first. At this point, you need to create a folder called gamedata" in the programfiles/thq/Stalker" directory and then copy the files you wish to modify to that directory...make sure you keep them in the proper folders.For instance your actor.ltx would look like this: C\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata\config\creatures\actor.ltx You may want to download an existing mod and just look at how it should be. Here is a link for the db extractor. Good luck! Fatrap dbex_rel_en.rar - FileFront.com
Thanks, i´ll get on to modding this game for added realism and ruder people right away... And of course your friends will actually have a purpose after i´m through with it.
