by no means is this an all inclusive list of problems in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. just thought it would be interesting to see what annoys the most. for me,

3) don't those guitar playin fools know more than 1 song???

2) i go in, clear out a room (or area or whatever). after making sure the area is clear, i pick up items, go into my inventory and *BLAM* someone/something jumps out at me and kills me! it's like the game knows when i'm incapacitated because i have my inventory window open!

3) previous savegames not comaptible with patch? wtf?!? :thumbdwn: (a sure sign the game shipped prematurely)

I've been pretty lucky to not have experienced any major bugs (knock on wood). I just hate how much of a bitch it is to get to different areas in the game. I've gotten used to how shooting works and actually really dig it.

I also hate that the patch renders past savegames useless. Poor design ftw!

The game crashes to the desktop around every 30min when saving a game :headexplode:
The pistol is very underpowered
And thats about it ;)

1. I don't speak russian, what are they saying!?
2. Why don't I ever get stronger. Late game I NEED lots of bullets to kill stuff but I can't carry them. Limited weight is an RPG element, where's my leveling (aim could get a little better too).
3. The ending. (I know there's more than one, I watched the others on YouTube, but WTF!)

1. Can't join a faction
2. PDA doesn't operate as well as it should
3. The fact that I haven't heard an expansion/sequel announcment

Open "user.tlx" file (located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\STALKER-SHOC) with notepad, then search for the line cam_inert .
Set its value to 0.

What i hate most is the damage i mean FEAR had awesome damage the enemies really took damage even if you shoot them 2-3 times with the pistol in slow mode and in stalker sometimes i have emptied more then half my magazine and it was on the final bullet it appeared that he took damage just then.

My only annoyance would have been the constant crashing with vista, but seeing as the patch fixes it, i'd have to say the incompatibility with old saves.

After finishing it, my only real annoyances are (XP with 97.92s)

-Weapons balancing

-several tasks appear to be broken

-I had a total of 3 crashes to desktop

-I would rather be able to pick up a weapons ammo only rather than have to go through and empty out what I pick up, no big deal though.

The first 3 seem to be addressed in the patch, and I just started my second go around, patched. Looking forward to it now that I have an idea of what I'm doing.

Set its value to 0.

Its set to cam_inert 0 by default anyway. It changes nothing. Try cam_inert 1 and see what I mean. It goes nuts.

1: Would love AA with Transparency AA
2: The sound he makes when he swaps weapons scares me
3: Its a shame they took vehicles out but looking at it now, the world would feel smaller with them and you wouldnt get very far because of the artard army blockades

Those, definitely, as well as:

1) vague, confusing quest objectives, random quests popping up seemingly unrelated to what you were doing

"Use the tunnel to the left, the rookies use that one"

would have been nice if he added...

"Oh by the way it's friggin filled with lightning anomalies that fry your ass in seconds if you take one wrong step."


I'll "grease the palms" of the military guys any day rather than walking through that friggin death trap.

so.. i am at a spot where i have to escort Prof. Kruglov.. he stops before going under a bridge, and tells me to go first. i go thru, and a minute later he follows me.. then just stands there. won't move, can't talk to him. i'm assuming this is 'bugged'.

anyone know of a workaround?

1) The aiming/focusing
2) Hit points
3) CTD's or BSOD's when you save or quick save alot.
