This is what i get when i try adding ANY mod,skin, or other file to my game. WinZip tells me "Error...Access Denied,problem encountered". If someone can read this and figure this out, and please tell me where the STALKER DIRECTORY is so i can add these in. Below is the text i get for ALL my files:
Extracting to "C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\" Use Path: yes Overlay Files: no Error: Access is denied. Cannot create C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\Readmeh.txt
Are you sure its in the right folder? Like weapons go in C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\Gamedata\Weapons. It also sounds like you winzip is MAKING a folder instead of putting a file in it.
gamedata folder should be created automatically though on the unzip...it did for mine...lame question but are you trying to unZIP a RAR file?
And if all else fails unzip the files to a temp folder somewhere on your desktop and just manually put the files into your stalker/gamedata folder(s)
