Stalker Clear Sky issues

Anyone else finding it buggy as hell?, Keeps crashing on my rig, thought it might be the overclocked CPU but even at stock its doing it.
Seems fine for Snoozer but not for me , Wondering if its a ATI issue?, Just been running around the Garbage area trying to get a artefact and it crashed 7 times in 15 mins :/, its getting to the stage where its unplayable for me
Gonna see if there's new drivers for my Graphics card and see if that helps.

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

As I said, I had one crash which involved staying longer than 15 seconds in trade with a certain person. Minus that it's been fine on my Nvidia

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

Great, all drivers updated and now its crashing even more, I am wondering if its this save game but I am loathe to start the game again for fear it will start crashing again
I am not even getting a bug report now, just direct to desktop

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

Used to get the same similiar problem in the original and it was down to "pre-caching" some textures. Do you get a bug report tool stating the error at all ?

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

Well I got my copy yesterday in the posty wosty... I had lots to do when we got back home from work so didn't manage to get much done in the game. I had a look around at the camp you start in and it all looks pretty nice.

Sadly I had to turn some of the features down and admit that my machine is now out of spec. I changed the lighting to Objects Only that was it and managed to keep detail at high and play at highest res - I'm probably getting somewhere around 20fps I think - it does drop though when there's to much going on - I'm running the following:

Windows XP SP3
AMD A64 3200
1.5Gb Ram
Ati X1900XT 512MB AGP
400PSU

Me thinks we need a change. But priorities don't allow for that at the moment so I'll just have to put up with it.

Going back to the point in hand - I've not played it enough for anything to crash. I did install the latest patch and this has really decreased load times which is good. They've kept it very similar to the first one, sounds and all sorts so looking forward to playing more.

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

Pretty sure that's the patch I was using, just trying a reinstall of the game now to see if that works, if that fails I am gonna have to try a new game, if that fails then I am getting drunk!

Re: Stalker Clear Sky issues

Main amount of crashes to desktop seem to be when loading a new level or switching screens, i.e going to the inventory screen.
