Subtitles and Closed Captions mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl
Languages: English, Russian
All NPC phrases which were spoken in English are subtitled and then some. Certain sound effects got closed captions as well. Other changes are:
- added extra entries into PDA's Diary section (optional) - re-enabled entries in PDA's Statistics section - new sounds: stereo FX processed and re-enabled original sounds - player selectable wish at the Monolith (the mystery of the Zone can be revealed without the decoder)
After installing InGameCC you can bravely replace all sounds to Russian with Authenticity Sound Pack or a similar sound mod.
For those who want to use InGameCC and The Zone Reclamation Project at the same time a compatibility pack for ZRP v1.05 will be released soon.
InGameCC mod for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl --------------------------------------------------- Version 1.00 English and Russian Description ----------- InGameCC is a modification of the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl which makes the X-ray engine display subtitles and closed captions when certain events happen (like an NPC says something, a door is opening, etc.) in the game. This method of showing subtitles can be useful for those who want to do a more complete localisation or want to adapt the game for the hearing impaired. Scope ----- All NPC phrases which were spoken in English are subtitled and then some. Certain sound effects got closed captions as well. Other changes are: - added extra entries into PDA's Diary section (optional) - re-enabled entries in PDA's Statistics section - added icons in ui_iconstotal.dds - replaced 2 fonts with their slightly outlined versions - re-enabled 1 Sidorovich sound - replaced 1 sound with its stereo effected version after Brain Scorcher turned off - re-enabled 1 osoznanie sound after opening the secret door with decoder - re-enabled 7 stereo effected English-spoken Monolith call sounds - player selectable wish at the Monolith (the mystery of the Zone can be revealed without the decoder) Install ------- Run the file "Install-InGameCC.bat". or 1. Copy all files and the 'gamedata' folder with all its contents into your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folder. 2. If you have v1.0003 or older game version installed then run 'Set-InGameCC_10000-10003.bat' Preferences ----------- You can pre-set your preferences in a text file named "closecaption.ltx" in the folder "gamedataconfigmisc". Open the file in a plain text editor (Notepad) and set values as you like. Although you can set CC options in Options->Sound while playing a game (values are retrieved from a saved game state), your preferences file will be left unchanged. Warning ------- This mod is not compatible with any other mod which modifies the same files. If you choose to install by simply copying "gamedata" folder into your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. folder then you'll be notified about possible file collisions. Overwriting existing files can (and probably will) stop one or more installed mods working properly, and unfortunately not much can be done to avoid that. However, installer backs up some files before overwriting them, and tries to restore them when you remove InGameCC mod by running 'Remove-InGameCC.bat' file. Since cutscene subtitling functionality of our previous mod VideoCC is built into InGameCC, please note that our method of displaying subtitles in cutscenes (i.e. simultaneously running tutorials) doesn't work on game version 1.0004 or later. To avoid problems with cutscenes the installer tries to detect your game version and copies the right one of the two "ui_movies.xml" files we prepared. Please remember to remove and re-install InGameCC mod in case you update your game to v1.0004 or later, or simply run the batch file according to your game version. Saved games created containing any of the extra PDA entries will cause the game to CTD (crash to desktop) when the PDA is accessed if certain XML files of the InGameCC mod are not available anymore (for example because the mod has been removed). The extra PDA info feature which is causing this is off by default, but you can turn it on by editing preferences (see previous chapter). Other notes ----------- After installing InGameCC you can bravely replace all sounds to Russian with Authenticity Sound Pack or a similar sound mod. For those who want to use InGameCC and The Zone Reclamation Project at the same time a compatibility pack for ZRP v1.05 will be released soon.
