I've been banging my head against my desk trying to make STALKER work with mods. First FatRap won't work, then BasicGraphix 2.0, now my old standby, Faiakies. I've unloaded ALL custom content, have my system file set to allow custom content, but it either loads for a few seconds then crashes to desktop, just plain won't run, or gives me a bugtrap error. I've unloaded ALL my mods and custom content, and it continually crashes to desktop. I have patched till 1.4. :mad:
I wouldn't doubt there is a software conflict from previous mods being installed. I'd try uninstalling stalker the delete the thq folder and start fresh. Otherwise check for hardware malfunctions or updates. maybe in the process of doing god knows what something else was uninstalled or rolled back. I had a bad PSU cause me some problems a while back.
Yeah, ok. I'll try a re-install right now.
I don't remember, do I need a key for the install?
I have never seen a multiplayer on-line game without key.. even free ones.. The key is on the back of the manual..
I suggest you stick to KnightFox answer : uninstall, delete, install again.. and check hardware if not working..
Just got your pm n88tr! Sent you a reply with some questions... sounds like the first 2 questions are n/a but the 3rd one about the error log might help us figure this out!
Ok great. Modding aside though I'm still having great difficulty playing the game either just plain vanilla or with mods. I keep getting set back to the desktop and I check my log file and it has messages like it has conflicts with the sound files in the gamedata folder, but they're aren't any sounds there! So I added some sounds and it slowly wants all the sounds back. I added them late last night [really didn't want to play then, I just wanted to get the game working] and it seemed to be fine until I completed the first mission wolf gives you and when I ran back to get my reward from him, I got another crash to desktop. I'm wondering if the patch 1.0004 could be hurting me? I never play online...
Hey n88tr... I can't remember... which mods are you trying to use?
Nevermind that question... I went back to PM and found info.... if I remember right you are patched to the 1.0004 patch. And I am fairly sure that Faiakes Mod is not compatible with 1.0004 based on what I have read about it. So far, there are only a few of the big mods like his that have been re-written for 1.0004.
Faiakies 1.2, mostly. I just did a clean install like 12 hours ago.
EDIT: Dandy. Another reinstall and only patch to 1.0003. Thanks Fatrap!
No problem n88tr! You might want to do some research on his mods... the one I looked at had several update patches that you might need.
