Ey

Can someone please tell me the patches I need to install for stalker?

And also, Is it true that theres going to be some huge update soon for the game? Because I dont want to start the game and get to a good point, and restart my whole game again when a new patch comes out..

Thanks

Hey...

I have been playing the game without patches and it works fine.

I did though install some mods that make it more realistic.

I have on:

- Realistic Weapons Mod

- Realistic STALKER Skies

- Realistic Shadows

No way, the game became stable with patch 1.0003, before it was problematic. The only mod I use is the repair mod...

im waiting for 1.004 to come out before i play thru it a 2nd time, i tried playing it a 2nd time thru with mods, and always crashes, then reinstalled without mod and always crashes at certain parts.

when is 1.004 coming out?

they said months ago, 1.004 would be out over the summer, and 1.005 would be out soon with new maps and stuff

I played it through without any patches(didn't want to loose saves), and it worked buttery smooth, not a single crash and I can only remember a single serious bug which was fixed by quickload. And I played the first half of the game with a 6600GT and the second half with a X1950Pro, no problems with either. But I'm gonna patch and mod it and play it again sometime in the near future.

Yap, man, the huge update is coming - patch 1.1 where there'll be free play and stuff. I'm following it and I'm pretty sure that the saves made in 1.0001-1.0004 versions will work in 1.1, as before.

It's certainly far from perfect, but at least it's better than previous patches. Still though, the game is buggy.

Bioshock is better than StalkerBaron_14

Yeah because that has alot to do with the topic, I installed 1.004 and the performance got alot better, and it seems like some of the weapons are a little more accurate to me.

Really? I haven't noticed anything like that. Instead I cannot help complaining that the buggy job system hasn't been fixed. And enemies sometimes shoot me through the wall.

Bullets do go through some of the weaker walls, that is intentional. I patched up to 1.004 and didn't notice many bugs except for some NPC blocking my path and being unable to complete certain side quests.

Works fine here without patches but added the latest float32 mod, runs a bit smoother, havent had much problems besides my saves not saving and checking to see if they actually save, Ai brain farts and shooting through walls, only major thing is it froze on me yesterdayat the Freedom base whenyou gotta get the grenade launcher for Duty from freedom
