I played a few hours of NS Joint Pak PLO K MA and it is a blast - the most intense hours of Cordon I've had so far. I had finally exhausted what Cordon had to offer (I think!) when I sadly lost my saves. Should I first play DMX before coming back to Joint Pak 1 or does the latter capture all the good in DMX? I tried OP-2 but its google translation is too much for me, even better though it seems in every other way.

Which version of DMX is best from a translation and gameplay perspective? DMX DKZ 1.3.2 or DMX 1.3.5 ENGMOD v1.0 Beta by boutch71? Does the latter include all of the former? Thanks for your experience, fellow stalkers.

Edit: Does anyone have a link to or a copy of dkz available for download?

DMX/Stalkersoup has had a bit of a troubled past. I probably wouldn't recommend Stalkersoup anymore, based on what I've learned of Technobacon and the design process for Stalkersoup.

DMX is, basically, Stalkersoup as it is supposed to be. It's developed by Shadows/Charsi and it is a really well thought-out and made. The dev team are very experienced, including many of the original members of AMK on it.

Stalkersoup is... well, I don't know what the gently caress it's supposed to be. It's never going to be finished, primarily because TB is an rear end (allegedly) and is trying to reinvent the wheel. I guess he's taken the original DMX, meshed together several versions that are not inherently compatible, repackaged it, and tried to pass it off as the 'ultimate' experience, when in reality it's the most unstable, buggy, terrible product that has ever graced the stalker community. Misery tried to supplant it, but TB has been at it a lot longer and has taken fuckery to an entirely new level.

DMX is an incredible mod. It's a huge addon to NS, designed and made by an actual competent team, is very stable, well put together and highly regarded in the Russian community. The only other mod that probably has as much respect is OGSE.

The latest version is 1.3.5 which you can get from the official site here: http://ap-pro.ru/forum/35-893-1

I'd recommend you get that version, and use the english translation from 1.3.5 ENG (I'd assume it's added a few extra things, possibly? I'm not familiar with the mod)

Yeah, I downloaded that DMX 1.3.5 version not SS. dkz-02 looks like it had a lot of work put in to atmosphere and translation that was not carried over to 1.3.5 (or SS). For eg: I came across this history of dkz and SS when trying to find the mod: https://www.reddit.com/r/stalker/co...or_shoc/cqeob2u

The only remaining 1.3.5 is a fully installed and merged gamedata version that has some idiosyncratic choices in it. Would be great to find the original mod package. Likewise for dkz-02. If anyone here has them, I'd like to throw them up on a mega to preserve them.

It's sad to see so many great mods disappear. Megauploads demise is part of the problem here.

Of course, Joint Pak has DMX in it so it's not lost in that sense. It too seems a far superior option to stalkersoup.

Great. 469 seeders too - not bad. Will archive it on a Mega share. Thanks much!

Edit: Plenty of folks seeding it. Where did you find the torrent? I tried 3 others that had no remaining seeders. Is this off a Russian site? Would like to dig around some more for someone seeding the dkz-02 version.

Edit 2: Rutracker.org and I see 1.3.2, but not dkz-02.

Link in 2nd last post here. It's an already installed gamedata with translation applied. The 1st page of that thread has details on the mods that were merged in.

Edit: The NS Joint Paks seem to be the next step in the evolution of DMX/NS and include all of/are built on DMX . They show all the same detail and quality in construction that Ddraig points out for DMX. The first one has a decent hand translation - NS Joint Pak PLO K MA. Definitely check it out alongside DMX.

Yeah. I still don't know what the PLO in NS Joint Pak PLO K MA means. I think K is for collector and MA is Master Addon (whatever that is), but am not sure. Doesn't matter though, drat fine mod.

That's some excellent damage control there with Lost Alpha.

I'd assume they're using "strays far afield from the old story" as a euphemism for "They hosed up everything that made the Zone cool by turning it into a literal Illuminati conspiracy"

Play Oblivion Lost Remake instead. It's what Lost Alpha should have been.

Yes but unless they noticed, the install instructions for les mis are out of order. You want to start with the general folder, then the class-specific one.

On paper les mis doesn't do a lot but its little changes like removing npc's grenades and making their aim less bullshit accurate goes a long way toward making the mod become vaguely enjoyable.

Finally decided to play through OL with the descision I would join the Monolith (so tried to avoid killing the ones I didn't have to). Been rather interesting since. The packs of dogs still roam the Red Forest and your "friends" do fuckall to help unless you've recruited them to follow you. After clearing the Bar out, Duty respawns in their little hole and bandits keep trying to take over the rest. Finally said gently caress it, recruited as many monolith guys as I could find (32)* And headed back to the bar and posted them around the place with most in Duty's area. So far we still hold the bar

*To anyone that tries this, lesson learned, take them in small squads as a huge group is like trying to herd cats as some decide to stand around and bullshit, others will stare at you like mute retards, some will engage anything they find no matter how far off....

Well, if you edit the scripts you can start off with tons of medkits/artifacts/weapons/armor to help you with that. You need to find out what the names are of the stuff you want as it is in the scripts, dig up the escape_dialogue script and under this line "function give_weapon_to_actor (trader, actor)" you can add a bunch of stuff to start the game with that you'll get after talking to Wolf

Yea, I believe I used to know how to do that. The issue now is that I am decently into the game and I dont want to start over. What I would love is to be able to just tweek my stats now, or failing that, be able to spawn medkits and artifacts when I need them.
