Nevermind I changed the lighting to Enhanced Dynamic Lighting (DX10). I didn't realize "wet surfaces" and "volumetric smoke" were DX10 specific.

I think those options only work in DX10 enhanced dynamic lighting mode.

I believe that not sliders in the menu for this . You need use the option Enhanced Dynamic Lighting (dx10) for activate those features

Not to worry Jonelo, I am glad someone else could confirm this too.

K man, lots of hotfixes around (mods to fix things like head bob etc) how the hell do you install them, I have the dl version maybe this is why I can't find a directory.

One other thing yah! patch! all my time down the crappier oh well, maybe this time through I won't have to carry 500 flash drives with me because I accidentialy went outside the triggers for the scripts....freedom mechanic/sniper uprgrades, take his mission for pda and fail pass and if you haven'y done the flash drives first you are screwed....etc.

Yes that is the case I didn't realize these options were DX10 specific and while running in Vista there is an extra Dynamic lighting option..."Enhanced Full Dynamic Lighting(DX10)" which I found, but thanks for your help and everyone else's too.

Are the neutral stalkers in the cordon area different from those in the agropom area? They are both green for me, only when I did some defend quests for some guy near agro I was sent back to cordon to get my rewards.

Also these other guys won't upgrade my armor and stuff. When I look at the faction icons, one group has two little dots under their insignia the others haven't got that. So I guess they are two separate groups?

Are there plans to add the DX10 stuff to the original STALKER?

initially i believe there was. they also supposed to released a patch to enable free-roam. beta or alpha patch did leak but it was buggy as hell. after that it got all quite and nothing happened.

i would say STALKER SoC patches are dead

AFAIK, No. However, there are plenty of mods available for STALKER that bump up the visual quality. Check some out like Float32, Ultra Graphics etc.

Yeah, I waited for that free-roam patch for a long time.
