    Too right mate. The other night i was..
    in a underground lab when on my way out down a long hallway, one of those mutants that look human but with large heads (sorta like a Halflife crab head) just starts screaming behind me.
    Got such a fright, that when my hands went up i still had a slight grip on my wireless mouse so when it flew out of my hand it nearly smashed into the roof.

    The audio for that mutant, its scream/yell etc sounds so real coz its not like a typical post-processed demon/zombie sound... just sounds like a real tormented person..

    Is this for the original Stalker? I was just about to try CoP with mods!

    It's standalone. Everything is remade and remodelled (well most things.) Kinda buggy and if you dont have the horse power it runs poor in dx10 with everthing on. It's fantastic and its like the true vision of stalker has become a reality.

    If anyone asks what this game is; it's 30% of SoC, 50% is new ideas, and 20% is from the old build which was not implemented in any Stalker game.

    Only Seven/eight hours in and my jaw has hit the floor so many times. I don't even think I've put six hours into Crysis3 yet.
    Pulled an all night'er for this.
    Just goes to show what an amazing team can pull off. I can't wait to go further in.
    In a few weeks/months we'll have SLA Complete with all the texture upgrades and then...then.... I will crap my pants.

    What settings are people using to get a solid 60 ?

    Ive turned grass / distance / AA / some shadows down and still only get 60 when inside or close to something, looking across the fields its down to 30~

    I've been adjusting as I go. With stalker it's best to aim for the lowest. If I set stuff too high it lags in heavy areas, with those same settings it's almost too fast in other areas and it makes me want to turn it up. Better to find your middle ground.
    For me. 2048x1536 Max settings DX10.1 MSAA AA 2x, Motion blur off.
    It will still go from 85fps down to 20fps in some areas but....it's a middle ground, I could lower the rez and not hit the 20 but....it's rare and worth it most of the time.

    Anyone found Strelok's Stash near Garbage. I've been down here forever and can't find it. I got the book but no stash.

    It's not your GPU, I can tell you that much.
    Try playing CPU affinity, like disabling Core #1.
    Not much you can do though, X-Ray being essentially single-threaded.

    PS
    View distance and grass as suggested above. Also grass shadows.
    Everything else (short of AI radius) is GPU intensive, and wont help you.
    Oh and previously mentioned god-rays!

    NO!

    You can almost safely max everything else. Everything GPU intensive.
    4xMSAA, 10.1 alpha-aa, HBAO, Shadowmaps, Textures, go for it.

    Exactly that's what I did. I trade the 4x for the high rez but...yeah max out the GPU then see what the CPU is doing. And I second the thread affinity.

    PS. I also had to go from High quality to standard quality setting in the NVCP, seemed to help keep it going at a high frame rate. For amdti, I don't know.
