I realise this is a known problem, but I also see other open threads on it so I thought, why not?

Stalker won't open, at all. I have the legit collector's edition steel tin version. Installation ran fine, and now my stalker folder is 5.49GB, as other people have noted.

I have tried several different exe versions:

Original, Vitality nodvd, hatred nodvd, Original patched,

and none of them work. I realise we aren't meant to discuss nodvd exes here, so please don't, just note that I have tried them :D.

With the first 3 attempts, the splash screen comes up, XR_3DA.exe appears in my proccess list, then it finishes and disappears. With the patched exe, the same happens but an error report appears on exit.

The report reveals a txt file, which I will quote here:

stack trace:

I have no idea what this means, obviously. I do notice however that there are tons of unknown commands, including what look like cheats. Heh, what's up with that?

My specs: Windows XP SP2 AMD Athlon 2700+ (2.16ghz) 1.5GB Ram GeForce 6800 Ultra Up to date drivers, although this really looks like a coding error rather than hardware failure.

So yeah, any ideas?

It says the error is on the D: drive, which by the looks of it is you DVD drive (the game is installed to the C: drive)

You may have a bad copy

Indeed, but why would that continue to affect me even with nocd patches?

Have you tried a re-install of the game?

*Removed URL*

Please read our FAQ policy on Warez and No-CD Websites. Also check your Pm's. While you are at it, read the Stickies also, they are there for a reason.

Rather than link to whatever it is, either PM me or note that I already tried two no-cd patches.

Or we could end all discussion of No-CD/DVD cracks before I am forced to close this thread.

We are trying to help you fix the problem with the game, but we have to do so within the boundaries of the forum rules. Any further mention of said cracks will result in thread closure.

Yeah, it must suck for the mods that they actually fix this ridiculous problem 90% of the time :D. Ah well, like I said they didn't work for me anyway, and browsing all other threads of this type on this forum I see the answers are always "try this crack" or "no cracks locked" so I doubt I'll get any help here.

I'll just have to wait for the official forums to come back up.

Thanks for.. trying.. though, I supposed. Although "probably a bad dvd" isn't that great an answer :D.

Have you tried reinstalling your sound drivers? It looks like the error happens right after the OpenAL loads
