##################################
---------- Installation ----------
##################################


1. Double click the file. It self-extract. Extract it anywhere you like (it is NOT an installer).

2. Place: gamedata (folder) + UImod (exe) + uicontainer (folder) in:

...\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl

Do whatever you want with the other files.


======= NOTE =======

1. DO NOT EXPECT that your old saved games will work with this mod. Just to be safe, keep my old gamedata folder somewhere before you try the new one. If the game crashes to the desktop either continue to use the old one or start a new game.

2. The Stalker Faiakes mod is meant for Master level only. Otherwise it makes the game too easy.

3. Requires patch 1.0003 to work and enable all features.

4. Some mods (e.g. Vehicles mod) need some tweaking to be activated. Please read the respecitve ReadMe file of that mod, which is in the 'All Other ReadMe' folder. I get seriously annoyed when asked questions whose answers can be found in the ReadMe.

5. If you can't get this (or any other mod) to work, you just need to modify the file fsgame.ltx, which is in the same folder where you placed the gamedata folder of this mod.

Simply, right-click on fsgame.ltx, choose 'open with', click the bottom option 'Choose Program...', select  Notepad from the list, check the option below to always open that type of file with Notepad and then click 'OK'.

Open the file and the second line will look like this (a bit more spread apart but ignore that):
$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\

Replace the first 'false' with a 'true' and the whole thing should look like:
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata\

Save, close and you'll find that all your mods work fine now.

----- Changing/Using this mod ---------
#######################################


======= Altering load capacity =======

Go to: gamedata\config\

Open file: system.ltx

Find line: max_weight	= 300 

Change to the number you prefer then, go to: gamedata\config\creatures

Open file: Actors.ltx

Find lines:
max_item_mass	= 300 
max_walk_weight	= 300 

and apply the same number as with max_weight.



======= Vehicles =======

Bring up the console (press`)

Then type: bind turn_engine kw

(where w is the keyboard key you'd like to use).

With the Use jey you can go into the vehicle

With [W] you start the engine.



======= Skins =======

- If you don't like Weapon skins, just go to: ...\gamedata\textures\wpn
- If you don't like NPC skins, just go to: ...\gamedata\textures\act

and delete accordingly.



======= Weapon Jamming =======


1. Go to: gamedata\config\weapons

2. Open any weapon file with Notepad

3. Find parameter: misfire_probability = 0.0000

4. Change back to original figure (see list below)

Original misfire data:

abakan		= 0.0050
ak74		= 0.0030
ak74		= 0.0030
beretta		= 0.0050
binoc		= 0.0001

val		= 0.0030
vintorez	= 0.0050
walther		= 0.0050
wincheaster1300	= 0.0050



======= Armour Degrading =======

1. Go to: gamedata\config\misc

2. Open file 'outfit' (for normal armours) or 'unique_items' (for unique armours) with Notepad

3. Find parameters:

[sect_novice_outfit_immunities]
burn_immunity			= 0 ;0.xxx
strike_immunity			= 0 ;0.xxx
shock_immunity			= 0 ;0.xxx
wound_immunity			= 0 ;0.xxx
radiation_immunity		= 0.00

and change the zeros to whatever values follow the ';'



======= Dispersion =======

a) fire_dispersion_base

This is the weapon's bullet spread. Can be found at:

...gamedata\config\weapons\**name of weapon**

and

...gamedata\config\misc\unique_items

Example: fire_dispersion_base = 0.20 (lower is better, 0.0 = 100% accurate)

I have only reduced the dispersion of 3 weapons. Below are their -original- figures:

FN F2000 	(config\weapons\w_fn2000) 	= 0.20
Gauss Rifle 	(config\weaponsw_gauss)		= 0.01
Groza 5.45 	(config\misc\unique_items)	= 0.18

And I have increased the dispersion of 1. Below is its -original- figure:
Silenced Mp5 (config\misc\unique_items)	= 0.15


b) PDM_disp_base 

This is the added spread because of your movement. Can be found at:

...gamedata\config\weapons\**name of weapon**

Example: PDM_disp_base 	= 2.0 (lower is better)
Original value was 1.0 (for almost all weapons).



======= Removing the new menu screen =======

You need to delete ui_mainmenu, which is in: gamedata\textures\ui



======= Removing the new title music =======

Delete gamedata\sounds\music folder



======= Removing all mini weapons =======

You'd need to delete their references in the trader files. 

1) Go into: gamedata\config\misc

Make sure there are NONE left:

======= Removing 100 Rads Bar sign =======

Delete prop_bar_logo from gamedata\textures\prop



======= Removing MP5 scope =======

Go to: config>weapons>w_mp5

open it with notepad

find this section :

;SCOPE
zoom_enabled = true
scope_zoom_factor = 30
scope_texture = wpnwpn_crosshair_MP5
scope_name = wpn_addon_scope
scope_x = 60
scope_y = -2
;End Scope

delete all of it.

And change this (its right above it):

scope_status = 1, to 0



======= Other Mods =======

The best way to do that is for you to download that mod, see the files it has and try to remove them from my mod. I say 'try' because you should only do that after you have read the ReadMe of that mod and you can be certain that they don't use common files which I merged. Otherwise the mod will crash.




##################################
---------- Bugs, Issues ----------
##################################

1. Saved games will not necessarily work. The changes in some versions simply require a new game to be started.

2. There is an issue with the game (not the mod). You have to have Antialiasing all the way to the left (off) otherwise the crosshair disappears.

3. If you have too many things for the trader and your items turn red, quicksave, quickload and you can trade again. Unfortunately, this is one of the disadvantages of making the traders offer so many things.

4. Sometimes when you die and are pressing any button at the same time, the game crashes to the desktop. I have no idea why but the patch reduced this a lot.



****** Stauffenbergs Stalker vista 32 bit "out of memory" fix ***Start***

The problem: Stalker crashes on vista 32 bit when played on high settings as there is not enough memmory available. 
This happens because vista 32bit can't address more than 2 GB of memory unless you use this tweak. 

There's basicly two things that need to be done: 

1) Apply patch 1.0003 

2) Now this is the important part!

a - Go to Start/Accessories/run command prompt (the dos box thingy)
b - Right click on the link, hit "Run as administrator" 
c - Now copy and paste:  BCDEDIT /set increaseuserva 3072
d - Hit enter and restart. 

Now stalker and any other games that have this problem on vista (Gothic3, supreme commander, Vanguard, BF 2142 etc) should run as smooth and stable as you can ask for.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me if necessary.You can also find me on the filefront forums as "21.Pz Stauffenberg"  jhor@hotmail.de

Thanks to Andy77 from the Nzone forums for finding this solution!

****** Stauffenbergs Stalker vista 32 bit "out of memory" fix ***End***


****** "out of memory" fix for XP ******

First you need to tell XP that it can use more than 2GB of RAM for applications.

Manually edit your boot.ini file by adding " /3GB /Userva=2900" to your boot.ini (no quotes).  Your boot.ini is normally read only and you will need to change that temporarily while you edit it.

To Edit it manually you can find it on the root of your system drive or go to system properties/advanced tab, settings under 'startup and recovery' section, then hit edit.

Mine looks like:  multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /3GB /Userva=2900

Yours maybe different, the only thing you should change is add /3GB /Userva=2900.
