Installed the 1.0001 patch.
The game won't start. Nothing happens. When I check the processes the xr_3da.exe is still there.:bawl:
Its a legitimate copy of stalker too.

Also, did you patch with mods installed?
Athlon64 X2 3800+ 2Ghz 3GB Ram Radeon X1800 XP (Currently running 7-4 drivers)
The Game worked before without a patch (had the same problem). however I had to apply the hatred patch if you know what I mean.:naughty: and it worked fine
I reinstalled, updated to 1.0001. Nothing Happens (xr_3da.exe hangs in processes). Install a new hatred patch gives the following error: ""The procedure entry point ?_intialize@xrDebug@@QAEXAB_N@Z could not be located in the dynamic library xrCore.dll"
I have no mods installed. Checked the log but there is only the old info from previous startups of 1.0
Here's the log

Could be the radeon drivers. However I doubt it

mad2100;3654745Install a new hatred patch
Whats that? It could be causing the problem...
well it seems to me that it's the old config scripts conflicting with the update (thats what drops the unknown command). I'm not sure yet but will try and change them a bit. But the biggest problem is the shaders conflicting and I dont know what they are conflicting with. Could either be the drivers (doubt it) or the actual stalker config scripts.
Please reply if there is anything else you think may be wrong. I hate siving through scripts and the developers are useless. I wrote them emails both in english and ukrainian. The lazy sods still wont reply.:mad:
I see that this is a rather old post but I'm haveing the same problem when I patch my game. It runs fine if I don't patch it, but when I install the patch, the xray engine or bug trap pops up. It seems like it's tryin to access my windows 32 files and it's a access violation so the game crashes. The report also generates a bunch of info. about my computer and it's state at the crash along with some scripts that looked almost exactly like the ones above. I sent an e-mail to THQ but no response, bastards...So wondering if there was ever a resolution to the problem....Would hate to play with the known bugs when it's only a click away from fixing...well a couple clicks. I have a pretty powerful computer so should have no problems runnin this game. It ran great prior to the installation of the patch Hardrive: Wester Digital Raptor 120 gb Graphics: Nvidia 8800 GTX 768 mb CPU:AMD Athlon X2 5200+ Motherboard:Abit Fatality Sound:Sound Blaster x-fi fatality RAM:2 gb Corsair XMS-2 dual channel PC-4500 Case:Well..it's a pretty strongly ventilated case with a rather huge CPU heatsink so overheating and voltage highs are not a factor.
Just bouncing about!

Ah someone else who has the same problem as me! And i'm the same i also have a pretty powerful PC so it should be able to run it with no problems but when you try to start the game you click the link to launch it and nothing happens it just sits there :confused: & contacting THQ well it's a useless venture as no one ever got back to me too! :mad:
Yeah, THQ and GSC hasn't responded back to me yet so I went and did a little looking around as to what was causing my game not to start up when I patched it up. The Xray engine was doing an Access Violation in a C:\Windows blah blah 32 file that was ultimately a ctdproxy.dll file in the win32 files. I basically just removed that ctdproxy.dll file since it seemed link to my sound card and hoped to god I won't have to format and re-install windows because of this game. It worked! Buttttt...after playing all night last night, I wake up ready to go on in the game...it won't load my saved games nor will it start a new game for me... the game is not the only thing that crashes, my computer goes with it. It was working fine last night...but something got corrupted or messed up or it's just one of the buggiest games to ever graced the shelves. So i'm attempting a re-install at the moment.... anyways, gl w/ urs.
