I didn't make it!
whenever i put actor.ltx and system.ltx in the correct sub folders 'config' and 'creatures' i get no spwans at all when i start a new game. only Sido the trader sits in his bunker. HELP.
i unpacked the files from my own db running stalker v 1.0004
Probably you unpacked the wrong ones? You will have more than one version, if you have downloaded a patch. Look for them in the later db files, like .dba etc
