S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Patches

New patches are now available for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, updating GSC Game World's just-released first-person shooter to version 1.0001. There are separate patches for the U.S., Russian, and International editions, with mirrors and change-notes listed in the VALUE5games Forum (thanks Matt). Numerous bugs are addressed by this update, which is accompanied by a warning that saved games from the old version cannot be loaded after patching. The U.S. edition can also be found on ActionTrip, FileFront, Gameguru Mania, Gamer's Hell, Internode Games Network, The Patches Scrolls, and Strategy Informer. The international version can be found on ActionTrip, FileFront, Gameguru Mania, Gamer's Hell, Internode Games Network, The Patches Scrolls, and Strategy Informer. Finally, the Russian version can be found on the Russian S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Website and mirrored on Gamer's Hell and The Patches Scrolls.

Yeah, it's both a great game and frustrating at times. Weirdest thing is how sometimes it runs like shit and crashes to desktop when trying to save a game other times it runs perfect. You got to give them kudos for doing something so different from all the other games out in recent years.

That being said I am very disappointed the saved games won't be compatible with the patch. I am about thirty hours into the game. I could restart and just focus on the main quest or story-line but even then it would most likely take me ten or more hours to get back to where I am.

Not to mention ammo is scarce and as you progress you build up funds, ammo, and most importantly better weapons. Since you character doesn't improve like a traditional RPG the weapons serve as the improvement or increase in your abilities. I'm not sure I want to restart.

Most likely I will create another install and patch it and begin another game that way. After installing there is no need for the CD in the tray so that should help.

I hope they make a second one and I pray they are half way into the development already so we only have about three years to wait for the sequel.

EDIT: You have to pick your artifacts wisely. If you don't have a better suit which it sounds like you don't then you are not going to be able to progress into certain areas of radiation or use those artifacts that decrease you radiation protection provided by your current suit. I too have loads of money and nothing to spend it on. But then I am a scavenging fiend. I found better suits as I explored areas, same as the weapons. Hope you can put aside the RPG Lite features and focus on the real meat of the game.

Oh, another wired thing I found out. As you begin you have crap weapons and it's hard as hell at times to win a fire-fight, so I began the game in Novice or Noob mode. As I got better and found better weapons it seems the game changed the setting because I am in Master mode now and I am still finding it a bit to easy at times to take out an entire base/factory/camp. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.
