AGH!
I want to play this damn game but it keeps crashing on me!

I found like three "stalkers" or "mercenaries" patrolling on the road and ran into them by not paying attention. We had a gun fight, and I won (barely!!) but after I looted their bodies which had some Sub MachineGun, Nades, med kit, ammo..I hit quicksave and BAM..Crash to Desktop.
It wasn't just on that event either, the second quest where you go on that ambush mission with the other three dudes. Everytime I hit quick save it would crash, so then I would hit escape to save and the same god damn thing would happen.
I would LOVE to play this game, but unfortunately these issues are ruining it for me.

Yeah the aiming reminds me a lot of BF2 in terms of aiming down the sight. I prefer the way the guns feel overall in this a lot more than BF2 though.

Is there much background ambient music while playing? Or is the game basically silent except for environmental sounds?

Hmm towards the end of this vid there seems to be some ambient music:

Unless I'm mistaken?

I knew signing up for a gym practically next door to Best Buy was a good idea. I'll have to pick this up on the way home tonight...

Yep there is ambient music playing pretty much constantly, it's very moody and not too loud but it is certainly there and it's very nice. You can hear it at the start of the vid too.

Oh thankyou!!!

That's great!!

So many of STALKER's trailers had such cool music, such as this one:

It will only work in the Static Lighting mode, period. In DX9 it uses deferred lighting, which is not possible to be used in conjunction with AA in DX9. It is possible in DX10. So we may see a DX10 patch hopefully in the coming months . Not like the framerate people are getting on maximum settings even allows room for AA as well . Will be interesting to see what performance improvements DX10 gives in real-world situtations .

EDIT: Here we go,

Also another thing... do yous agree that the option to have subtitles for the Russian dialogue would be better? Or is it better without knowing what they're saying?

Does this game natively support the 360 controller? (sometimes I like to just lay back and play from the couch in the living room).

Quicksave is buggy as hell in this game both with XP and Vista, there's been many others on other forums with the same or similar problems with quicksave.
I suggest you don't use it and just save regularly from the main screen.
Hopefully there'll be a patch for it in the near future.
