Try reseting to defaults or replace config file with a fresh one .. or even delete the savedgames & just keep the autosave ones .. stuff like that might help with the issues some of you guys having.

I just installed the game but I haven't played it yet. It took 5.3 gigs to install and it loaded up the first time with no problems. I'm getting tired so I'll play it tomorrow morning when I get up fresh Fry's had it on sale for $33.99, cool.

The concept and the graphics in the game are just awesome, the game just seems quite a bit buggy. It also stutters pretty often when running around the open environment, more than Oblivion does.

I'm not using quicksaves because someone said earlier they were buggy as hell.

This game is SO much fun...and I really dig it, it's just effing hard at times. I keep getting raped at that bridge where all of the rogue STALKERS are hanging out. I killed like 6 of them, went back to town to sell off some of the stuff I picked up, went back and there were three more that have assault rifles and shotguns and they totally pwn3d me like 5x.

Very cool detail!

just crashed after 1min of play. Hit escape to adjust visuals but it only saved the game.. then tried the F keys... Hit f6, Bam!.. zapped right to desktop.
-Changing desktop style from areo to classic.

esc key does not work..
f6 crashed game...
i go to bed and catch old chicken in dream.

1:23am cant sleep, and my mommas not home
Very cool style.. Sort of like watching a foreign sci fi movie that was done really well.. It's not the standard US/Japanese linear crap we are all used to.

ok....
SOLUTION TO CRASHING ON SAVE and other menu accessing crap!!

I changed lighting style down a notch to object based and its all good.. full looks so much better but at least it isn't crashing in vista for me anymore when hitting f6 to save.. Still cant access menu unless I hit f7 then esc. Game runs like a Russian tank once its going though.
Everything is maxed out.. AA, all sliders, grass, crazy bloody dog amount,.. etc.. cant turn on the two notches for grass lighting and whatever the other was....
1920X1200! 8800 gtx! Vista! Wqhl!

Wait for patches if you have vista and want to experience it at it's best. Glad they released it, but it wasn't ready for the states. It'll be there soon though I'm sure.
Remember have some mercy, the dudes who designed this put tons of heart and soul into it and they DONT make your average fast food worker's salary here in the states.

You mean the guards are the checkpoint ?? you're not supposed to attack them if you dont have the firepower & a sufficent armor. just pay the fine to pass.

Played some more. No crashes sofar. In terms of bugs, there are some minor clipping issues (pretty typical though), and one dead NPC got stuck on a campfire drum and went all spastic.. but I dragged his body and it fixed it. Nothing other than that sofar. Definitely nowhere near as bad as what some are saying.

I find the shotgun the most effective against dogs/mutants due to them running around everywhere fast, you waste a whole lot of rifle or pistol ammo trying to hit them. They are far less challenging than humans though.

From the reports of quicksaving, I'm only saving normally. Doesnt bother me though. Normal saving is still light years better than.. uhm... *cough* Halo's *cough* checkpoints

No issues with normal saving.

I think performance went down into the teens in some areas, so I turned off grass shadows, still looks almost the same but with better fps. Sun shadows seem to be the main eye-candy feature

Still loving it

So far these framerates seem constant. I'm not undergraound yet where you guys said your seeing the huge dips though.

And your probably right, maybe I am missing a setting somewhere.
