I am running STALKER on Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and it is running like a charm with everything maxed out atm, I was expecting 100 problems and crashes straight away but to my surprise not even a glitch yet. Much better than Oblivion, I have a crash like every 15 minutes with Oblivion with my current rig.

Not to rain on your Vista-happy parade, but this is just ONE person's experience. Overall, few people [especially 'game review' site people] have achieved STALKER working with Vista flawlessly. This is just a simple fact because STALKER was not build around Vista, like perhaps Crysis or COD 4, etc games are. It sucks, I know. I would upgrade to Vista tomorrow save for the problems it has with older games like STALKER. I love STALKER but it doesn't play well with Vista so I'm not upgrading [at least until I get tired of STALKER.]

I'm using Vista Ultimate, I can run Stalker on full settings with no problems but can't get multiplayer to work and I've tried everything!

try working on those new vista security upgrades, such as the firewall. your computer could very well be blocking all incoming and outgoing internet traffic to STALKER. find that block, and get rid of it so I can frag you!!
