iv downloaded the 1.0004 patch and am trying the game for the first time. i played "oblivion" extensively and when i found stalker was being modded i wanted to try them out. iv uploaded ABC mod and Basix mod along with a few others but none seem to be working. iv changed the fsgame.ltx file from:$game_data$ =false true $fs_root$, to: $game_data$ =true true $fs_root$ any helpful info?
are the mods extracted correctly to the STALKER directory? There should a folder named gamedata there now
hi um..if using patch 1004 us version.. neither abc or proper free play mod will work right and its no support for them..basix for 1004 is a good mod.. do the kruglov fix and normal scope fix if you want..faiakes has a new mod out 2.4..i have not tried the last 2.4 faiakes mod..from what i read.. i will stay with basix mod..and basix has alternate starts.. different suits and weapons to start the game.. um anything that natasha or faiakes put out has great support.. they are more simple type mods..trader guns skin changes and tweak graphics etc..abc and proper free play are more complicated or more like a total conversion mod and they do not work..well not for my us patch game anyway i just cant play anymore with simple type mods..unless gsc or thq puts out some real patches and add freeplay..and fix multiplayer..i will never play stalker again..seems gsc and thq track record is.. they can care less and want us to pay 2x for stalker and id bet money clear sky will be just as bugged and will be garbage..and same bull chit support and monkeys working for them for free..if they pay professionals and give them the tools to work with..well we would have a great game [stalker soc]..but they suck and go for the cheap out and you get what you get..gsc and thq and stalker fan boys have an on going con bait and switch lie and cheat policy to get more of our money..but be careful what info you read on stalker soc cause they run any and all info together with clear sky to confuse folks and make folks think they are going to get something for soc and not have so much complaining on its site..but fan boys are not attacking people as much now..they finally see gsc and thq do not care for them either..they just use them to help perpetuate the on going con...only a complete and utter idiot will buy clear sky.. sorry so long..unless you want tons of crashes and no support..stay with simple type mods basix and faiakes 2.4 mod.. seems gsc and thq are never going to put out sdk's for stalker either.. only true die hard fan boys who got a few free copies of stalker to attack folks who posted legit bug problems..might stay with and buy clear sky..maybe the gods will give them its just rewards and his system and house blow up and burn to the ground.. only a complete and utter idot will buy clear sky period... see ya
um as the moderator said..you should on have 1 game data folder with the mod folders inside of it..it will not work if you have a game data folder inside a game data folder..delete saved games..and as you said set to true true..start a new game it should work.. some folks make the mistake and have a game data inside another game data folder..the game can not see it and will not work..id think normal vanilla would work but maybe not..i never had these problems in the 22 games i played with different patches and mods..[simple type] mods that is.. basix and faiakes mods..
ha ha what ever.. others can post as many times as they like..im not a fan boy so they put all my posts together and before i can finish an edit on my last post.. but thats the point to try and make me look more stupid then i am filefront is another site that only cares about the money it gets to run ads for game companies..and will give high ratings to junk games and support fan boys to perpetuate the cons to get our money..if you are not a fan boy and play along with the con..you are not liked and dogged out.. ha ha just what ever.. i do not just speak for my self..i speak for all good and honest folks who spend his money..we are sick of being cheated by everything of the pc world..nothing works as advertized..then they have tude too..its funny really.. i will never post here again.. file front sucks.. this is a forum..no 1 can say what he has to say with only 1 word or line..im not trying to blow wind up folks butts trying to perpetuate a con..so they dog me out..its funny really cause if im not posting.well few others are posting..its just a dead thread or site unless folks care to post..
Its my job to merge double/triple posts. If you can use the edit button, then use it. That is why it is there.
If you have any questions regarding these rules, feel free to PM either myself, another moderator, or read the FAQ/Forum Rules.
what ever dude..you put the crap together be for my 30 minutes to edit time runs out..i can not edit it then.. its funny really cause.. i really try to help other folks if i can..just im not a stupid kiss butt fan boy..and i see no place in any of the other threads where you folks put peoples post all together like you do mine.. fact is if other folks was posting..well it would be posts between my posts..and my posts would not be back to back as some are..ya a fault of mine might be to talk to much..well nothing about me is short..nothing.. im sorry i even bother and im sorry i cause the site problems..
If you need something edited after the 30 minute edit time, send me the edited text in a PM and I will update it for you.
i'v extracted the files into the stalker file under THQ. i didnt extract them into a separate folder inside the stalker folder, am i supposed to create one speacially for mods? and is my problem perhaps stemming from the fact iv got 1.0004 patch? should i reinstall with patch 1.0003?
responding to EZEHT, basix mod is not functioning either. i wish it did. oh how i wish i had longer mission times and more firearms to choose from...and less encumbrance....and more gore....and lower respawn rate.."sniff"...woe is me.
Most mods (if extracted correctly) will set up the hierarchy in the folder.
You have to make sure that the mod is compatible with 1.0004 though
hemlock i will try to help ya.. um the mods basix gfx-mv 2.0 and faiakes 2.4 works with patch 1004.. Basix GFX-MV, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Singleplayer Faiakes Mod, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Singleplayer you down load the mod.they are in 7zip i do think..extract them to your desk top..open the folder [file etc.] look for a file called gamedata..double click game data..you should see like 8 sub folders inside of it..close and then move only the game data folder the whole gamedata folder to C:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl.. all you move into stalker main game .is the mod gamedate folder thats it..none of the other junk[from the mod zip] goes into the game folder-you can save or delete the other junk if you want..make sure you empty out your saved games folder and then start a new game..it should work..this is simple stuff..as said be for..check to see that the other folders are in game data folder..you do not want a game data inside a game data..it will not work.. ignore the folder that says mods..i do not know why gsc added that folder to 1004 patch? read through the thread links to download the mods etc.look at bottom for comments read and get and install any fixes..it will be instructions how to do so..the mods install the same for any patch.. for a different mod change out the game data folders empty save games and start a new game..or you can change back to any mod and saved games for it anytime if you like.. good luck see ya it should look like this..> in the same stalker main game folder look for fsgame file and edit with note pad..it should look like this..[line #2]>
hey, thanks! now when i want to upload another mod should i choose to overwrite gamedata folder or just add to it?
