S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha Mod

Mod DB now features the first release version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha, a modification that attempts to bring to life a version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. more closely aligned with the vision of the game first presented by developer GSC Game World during the game's development. As they explain, at some point this took on a life of its own: "We started to develop Lost Alpha in the summer of 2008. The project first started out as a modification to add back the cut levels which all Stalker fans knew of. After a while, it became more than just a modification, it became our dream game, how we saw S.T.A.L.K.E.R. We hope to give you the same feeling when you first played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. A new chapter with familiar elements without which S.T.A.L.K.E.R. would not be the game we all grew to love. Lost Alpha was a labour of love. We are passionate about it and we hope you all will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it!" This old trailer offers a look. Thanks Rhialto.

So my question besides graphically how is the gameplay different? Also how is it different from the "complete" mods?

Who has seen the Russian movie of the same name, that the game is based on? I have to admit I watched it recently and found it to be too slow. But the premise and some of the scenes are fucking awesome.

Isn't it based on a series of books?

Yes, Roadside picnic. I havent read the book but Ive watched the film:

Wow, I was expecting just another mod with new textures and the like but this is a completely different game. If your machine has the stones, go full retard on all options and it looks pretty good. I'm still only in Cordon but there's got to be some levels that are unchanged from the alpha to the, er, omega?

I remember watching the first trailers for STALKER and being very excited. It was the game that I'd always wanted to play.

Didn't quite turn out as expected, but the mod community have done a lot for it.
Will try out this mod when time permits.

Hmm, lots of new content... but it doesn't seem as good as Complete for the rest.

oops I gave the link to the announcement but forgot to give the link to the lastest video as well, which is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjh8sjkKR40

You may want to replace the older video with that newer one.

Another one but showing more gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDgE5l367ls

I installed it but skipped the C redistribuable thing and such at the end of installation and the game refused to run. I will have to install again and see, time was missing.

I believe it's a short story called "Roadside Picnic" (or something along those line, I've never read it).

edit: Yeah, this is the one:

Yup, I read it, it is one of the earliest books on what we see as a post apocalyptic World. It was written behind the iron curtain and the story of how the book was published is just as entertaining as the book itself. Worth the read. The author was well ahead of his time in regards to this genre.

I think you're thinking of Metro for the one based on books.

Most crashes I read about in the forum this morning where from people using the static lighting setting, so if you do risk it (I saw a number of very positive comments) make sure you're not using that.. which is the DirectX8 renderer if I remember correctly.

Reading it's a crash-prone mess at the moment, even for people familiar with the X-Ray engine. I'd hold off a month or two for patching.
