Hi everyone.

Does anyone know where i can find closed captions for the new stalker game. Its fun so far but obviously was not created with the needs of the hearing impaired in mind. Its totally killing the experience.

Download "Call of Pripyat English v1.0", but only install the following files:

gamedata\configs\localization.ltx
gamedata\configs\misc\closecaption.ltx
gamedata\configs\text\eng\st_closecaption.xml
gamedata\configs\ui\(entire folder)
gamedata\scripts\(entire folder)
gamedata\textures\(entirefolder)

Hope this helped! It will add an option to the sound menu that will let you choose "voices only" or "all sounds". I'm not sure if this extends to things like gunshots and the like, unfortunately, as it was only fan made! It was originally made with the intention of letting users player with Russian voices but still understanding what was going on (the official English translation and, bro, voice acting, bro, are absolutely, bro, terrible, bro!).

More developers should take Valve's lead and develop games with full closed captioning for the hearing impaired and options for colourblindness either through an option or the actual game design (TF2's team colours ensure that they're easy to see for the majority of people with colourblindness, and on top of that I believe there are further options to help this).

is that real closed captions? or just subtitles?

There's captions for some things like doors opening/closing, but not a lot else, I'm afraid.

What other things would you like to see with closed captions? I'm not familiar with what's required but I could always tweak it, to improve it? Things like mutant idle/attack sounds, gunfire, what else?

this didn't work for me. Any suggestions?
