    I forgot something to add to my former post about tasks created. I believe, not the time for the tasks should be altered, but the behaviour of AI should be tweaked a little. Look, right now, its as follows: AI takes an checkpoint and this checkpoint is attacked constantly, *until* all AI of
    said checkpoint(group) is killed. There are no reinforcements. Needless to say, one faction member doesnt stand a chance against a bunch of mutants. So, once an certain (under-) strenght to hold that checkpoint is reached, there should be created an AI-task *at* the corresponding faction HQ,
    and not the nearest friendly outpost, to reinforce said outpost. I'd find that to be cool;..to choose and defend an checkpoint, until your
    buddies are traveled there from HQ. If you are not there to help defend, and the checkpoint is overrun, those reinforcements should attack the checkpoint and try to regain it. Cool? :)

    I want to add something too.

    This is getting ridiculous. Iam in point A. Stalkers ask for my help for to defend point B. The distance between A and B is lets say even if u can RUN it will take @ least 2 minutes. point A is middle of no where. no fast travel option ETC. and ADD that they ask for help and after 15 seconds (once i saw it happened just after 5 seconds) Quest failed. :D i like this game .Realy like. but this kind of issues killing me. even i have jump jets i cant reach that position in 5 seconds. And last night. i kept capturing the DEPOT (around stalkers u remember? and it is side quest of stalkers) and killed many BANDITS on my own, they thank to me etc etc. And i start to leave that place to collect my reward and head back to stalker camp. But when iam a REAL far to that DEPOT they say "enemy is attacking defend, help". i say : "CRAP WTF" i start to run but in seconds its LOST. Now :D. No reward. also my equipments r damaged which will cost me. Awarding game play :D

    Just re-installed the game, i almost gave up hope.
    I used Enhanced Lighting and TweakGuides.coms' guide for better performance, games runs pretty great now, especially without the eye-candy like god rays and steep parrallax and map bumping, those things are fps drains for my rig.
    Also i disabled DX10 features, things like 'seeing raindrops fall' and 'enable AA (wich you hardly notice is this game) arn't worth it. I could force AA perfectly tho via RivaTuner 11.

    for the gameplay itself i really needed a sleeping bag mod, because the nights are horribly to play in, you just can't see anything.. The AI & bugs are the only annoince for the moment, especially the NPC's pushing me and the hectic messages.
    So i'll try it again for a second time, but im much happier than before at least

    I agree, those fixes are only 1% of the bugs in the game :p

    Anyone been able to enable AA playing the DX9 version? Does it work or is it a DX10 exclusive?

    Thanks!

    Yes that is very annoying. Its not fun playing for 10 hours, then have that go down the drain because you cant progress due to another script bug.

    Speaking of another bug, I got around the 688 script error by reverting to a previous save game. Now I get this:

    FATAL ERROR

    [error]Expression : fatal error
    [error]Function : CScriptEngine::lua_error
    [error]File : E:\priquel\sources\engine\xrServerEntities\script_engine.cpp
    [error]Line : 180
    [error]Description : <no expression>
    [error]Arguments : LUA error: ...er - clear sky\gamedata\scripts\smart_terrain.script:1003: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)


    Before I joined Freedom, I wasn't getting any errors!

    So it appears that the Fraction wars part of the game was not tested properly :(

    ^
    Apparently, you first need to do the Duty jobs, before joining Freedom, otherwise you get those script errors.

    To me, the graphics weren't all that impressive.

    the lightning is cool, the shadows cast by the sun moving behind things (ie. trees etc.) was ok.

    But other then that the graphics were no different then the original stalker.

    though i did have to turn off anisotropic filtering cause it was causing flickering glitches.

    I feel for you,I had such a thing happening to me before the 1.5.04 patch but now I am not having any problems and I entered the hospital so it seems I can finish the game and do a restart with the new patch.Anyway thanks for the patch news and hopefully it will sort out some crashes.


    @Norvegia,use nhancer and you can force AA in DX9 with that program.

    I think the same way about that.Its just a call for help and you cant help them all,its just the Zone being alive and dynamic and if they loose a position you can get another task later to re capture the position by asking an NPC.
    The tasks you get by asking an NPC can always be done,at least in my experience.

    But sometimes it seems that they call for help if they are already as good as dead like in this pic:D

    i got the game, DX9 1440x900 everything to the max including Enhanced HDR performance is awesome barely any lag at all, framerates average 60+ with peaks of 110-120fps, lowest around 45-50.

    the game looks better than the first one and i feel really excited, obviously i've applied the latest patch. love it. :D
