Not that this will help anyone here, but I thought that somebody might be in the same situation that I am in. Currently the only internal hdd that I am running is rather small. Seeing that the extracted db files take up almost 6 gigs, I found a way to use them off of another drive (in my case an external 500Gb sataII drive) if you edit the $game_data$ line in your fsgame.ltx file to look like this, you will be able to change the "gamedata\" to anything of your choosing, in my case d:\stalker\gamedata. Hopefully this will help somebody besides me. Also, thanks for all of the hard work that you guys have put into your mods, they are greatly appreciated.

Here is what the aforementioned line in your fsgame.ltx file should look like:

$game_data$ = true| true| | x:\x\x\x

Relpace the x's with whatever path you wish. The important thing here is that you delete the "$fs_root$" in your original file. That basically makes the game look wherever you have pointed it to look.

Cheers.

Why? Why is it a good idea to open the DB files? Is it because the game was written in an old dbf format and the server system is the newer format? In other words, ...would it be best to convert the old DB files to a newer format to make it work better and faster with the newer format server system?
