According to the ModDB page it has to do with Sweet FX.

There might be a problem with compatibility of Steam version of the game and Sweet FX add-on.
To disable SFX, please delete (or rename) bin\D3d9.dll after installation of the mod.
Sweet FX has only a slight sharpening effect so you can delete it without regret.

The steam version was patched to 1.0006

There's an official 1.0006 EXE that is floating around that was released by GSC as one of the last things they did before they closed shop. It's basically the original 1.0006 with no copy protection. Seeing as how GSC is no more, and this was officially released by them, I guess this is kosher to link to:

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u...per_exe_FOV.zip

This particular version has several crashes fixed, most notably the "(bytes_need<=mSize) && vl_Count" error, and actually properly changes the flag to allow low-memory systems to play the game better.

Thanks bro, that worked out perfectly for me.

The game does look CoP levels of nice. The new ambient sounds are super cool and make things feel all foresty, but I'm kinda bummed they felt the need to import Misery's ambient music. I was hoping they'd furnish their own. It's fitting, I can't bash it in that regard. But it sounds too much like it.

Yeah, it's just weird that launching the game directly via steam would cause that to happen. You wouldn't believe the amount of trouble I went to to figure out how to get it to work. I installed a DVD version, patched it to 1.0006 then reinstalled the steam version and compared the files to see what was different (the retail version doesn't have "testapp.exe").

Turns out it was literally as easy as just opening the stalker executable directly, skipping Steam. I can only imagine this is the x-ray engine doing its thing again because I've never seen anything like that

So in Misery 2.0.2 with the Hotfix patch, the Evolution-9 silencers don't work for my GSh-18, even though it is 9x19 mm and I have upgraded it to have a silencer affinity, what gives?

The version of the Hotfix I made includes a weapon overhaul. I believe silencers were changed during this.

To be honest, I've pretty much given up on that little project due to a few bad experiences with the Misery team in general. Well, one person in particular, really. All my time is focused on my SoC mod now. Misery was a fun little distraction but some stuff is just

Right now I've got the SoC keylogger working which finally allows me to do some pretty neat stuff in SoC, like having dedicated keys for various things, like helmet nightvision, car radios and such so you don't have to rely on Tab doing everything.

Now I can do rather neat things like certain weapons having a "nightvision" toggle which will allow you to switch on nightvision when zoomed in with certain rifles etc.


^^^ I realized I probably screwed up a few things with the "Hotfix". The traders in particular were quite annoying. The Unofficial Call of Pripyat patch decided to disable trade with medics for various reasons, which is at odds with Misery which has a "two traders in every base" thing and they shoehorned the medic in Jupiter into that role. You can basically delete the "medic" script files, as the only changes that were made were setting the trade things to false. I don't believe any other behaviours were changed at all. It will then revert back to the normal CoP style.

Also, the main file that controls what the medic sells is "trade_jup_b202_stalker_medic.ltx" in configs\misc\trade

There is a metric ton of conditions they've added to change the stuff traders sell. I think it's needlessly complex, but that's Misery down to its core. Basically the medic, in theory, starts out with a small supply of goods then depending on your actions (info portions you earn) he sells more stuff. I believe the trade files in the latest version of the Hotfix are basically stock Misery with the new drug added in, so any weirdness in supplies is down to Misery itself.

e2: hosed up with the medic script files again

This is the final version. Medics should now trade properly. Can't guarantee that they'll do so in existing save games, but new ones will work normally.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u...ery%20Hotfix.7z

If you don't want to download the entire thing again, here's the two files that have been changed. Just drop this into your configs folder, and overwrite. Alternatively you can delete those two files and it will revert to normal.

I tested it with an existing savegame and it worked.

I played a bunch of hours of SoC, got sidetracked, when I came back to it I had no idea how to play it and didn't really want to restart, so I skipped it and I'm planning on starting CoP.

What's the consensus for a first run? Mod-free? I think I have Complete around here, but AtmosFEAR 3 is supposed to be really good? Any minor mod/tweak I should look out for?

Cheers.

CoP is completely fine to play mod free. I'd recommend it, actually, if it's your first time playing it. Atmosfear 3 is amazing, but it can change the gameplay slightly as it adds in a few extra features like psi-storms/fallout.

Then again it's not THAT different from CoP so the transition back should be fairly painless

I beg to differ, CoP is a ton different than SoC. One of the things I love about CS is how it bridged some proto-CoP mechanics to SoC's world. A fitting step in the evolution to CoP.

I did play quite a bit of SoC, I got to the bar, did a whole lot of quests after that, including something about a... military base? plans? I ended up getting into some sewers where something attacked me

Then I went back to the bar, went to look for a scientist, and my quest marker glitched and kept pointing at the entrance to the trainyard area, got kinda fed up and never came back to it. :I

Ah, so you got to I'm assuming the agroprom underground, then were given the quest to go to the wild territory and save Kruglov from the merc ambush to get to Yantar and lab x-16. I'd really suggest giving SoC another go round with something like the Zone Reclamation Project installed. None of the other games really touched just how fantastic the first game was in my opinion. Don't get me wrong I love CoP and to a lesser extent CS, but the level of exploration available in SoC is just amazing.

Aye, sounds about right; I googled a bit and agroprom looks like that underground bit I mentioned. I probably played an hour or 2 after that.

I may go back to it eventually, but I don't even know if I still have my save files and starting from the beginning again seems a bit... daunting.

/edit: Since we're on the topic, is The Zone Reclamation Project the go-to mod for a re-run of SoC? (I think I played it with Complete the first time).

And, second question: I got AtmosFEAR for CoP for the pretty factor, but I want to leave the game intact gameplay-wise; which are the extra storms, the psi ones and fallout?

I've had to run to the Agroprom centre about 10000 times in the process of testing out my mod. If I never see another controller I will die a happy man.

I've redone the night vision system a bit. Night vision is no longer an integrated part of your suit. The only way to get it is to wear a helmet with a night vision module attached or find/buy a device you strap on to your belt. This means you no longer have to use a specific suit for a specific type of night vision but it does come with a few compromises, like emissions either shutting it down completely or even frying your night vision if you get the full force of one in the face.

Same here. I really really want to love CS and SoC but I keep on playing CoP instead. SoC and CS (with the Complete mod, at least) are both good games, but CoP was my introduction to the series and as such the one I feel most comfortable playing. As a bonus, it's also the most bug-free of the series. I say go check it out if you get the chance, it's guaranteed to give you at least a couple hours of entertainment.

Clearly the best option is just Sid with "MARKED ONE, WHAT THE HEEEELL!?" on loop

e: From what I can tell, it's sort of of supposed to be a romance. A girl is in the Zone because she's run away from home, Sid got a message from her father to find her, and you end up saving her life and falling madly in love. Other highlights include: Giving her a bar of chocolate in exchange for a kiss, and going for a moonlit walk.

The sex scene itself seems to be a texture overlay (like a helmet) that just cycles between two textures along with some camera movement. I've only seen it in the game files, I can't imagine what it looks like in motion

I do think the idea of women in the Zone is quite interesting and it's actually mentioned quite a few times in the books, but virtually all of the female models for stalkers I've seen have been universally terrible, completely out of place (Zoey from L4D, Alyx from HL2 etc.) or both (the most popular one is some sort of leotarded woman - no joke)

This mod does have some cheesy porno music, though.
