Sorry if this is a repeat, but I simply cannot find the answer using the search feature. I'll keep this short. The normal text (i.e. NPC conversations, button names, PDA page titles, hover-help, etc) have all been replaced with what looks like XML IDs. It's as though the game has decided to display the name of the text field instead of the text itself. Instead of "New Game," I get "ui_mm_start_new_game." Or I get "ui_mm_last_save" instead of "Last Save." This happened after I unpacked the database files. I made some changes to the actor.ltx file to increase damage immunities, nothing more. The game plays just fine, but there's nothing to read. No item descriptions, no NPC conversation text, nothing. Anyone have the simple answer for a lost modding noob? Thanks :)
Help! Im getting the same exact F___ing thing! its all in russian gibblegarg what du hell
@flynnt77: If you unpack the gamedata files, put them into a different folder. Not into your Stalker directory gamedata. Only put files you have edited there. That reduces the possibility to use wrong file versions and you can remove the edited files easily, if something goes wrong like in this case.
So move the whole gamedata folder, just put the actor.ltx back and see if it works.
@SGDirka: That's not the same problem, if you see Russian text. Post more info. What did you edit? Do you use mods? Etc.
You can do that? oh lol ill try that / yeah i meen it does the same thing only some is russian some english and some looks like "intro sequence 1" or something
