Hi, im looking to start modding the Stalker files - (totally new to modding so be gentle !!) ive extracted the game data files (db1 into new folder named db1 db2 into new folder db2 etc. etc.) into the main stalker directory C:\Program Files\Games\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl ive tried changing some of the weapons available at the various traders, and tried to update the weapons to the real firearms names im still trying to play on from a previous saved game - but when loading from a save point the mods ive tried to change dont seem to be working !! ive changed the command line in the fsgame.ltx to $game_data$ = false| true| to $game_data$ = true| true| - can anyone shed any light on what im doing wrong ?? - do i have to start a new game to make the changes come into affect ...

im using ver 1.003 Cheers, Steevo

i believe anything that changes even the slightest aspect of the game bar skins needs a restart.

Here's what I've done. I made a new folder on a completely different place on my HD, like my documents, or whatever, and named that folder "gamedata". Any file I modify, I copy and past into a new folder, whatever you'd like to name it, so If I screw up, I don't have to completely re-extract everything.

Also, you've got to have the folder in your STALKER folder called "gamedata" and have all those files in there. =)
