STALKER Clear Sky crashing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I get the following: xrEngine has stopped working. I have the version patched to the latest 1.5.0.7 and it's the retail (Deep Silver) copy. Every time I try and run it I get that. I am using the Catalyst's provided with the Sapphire 4870 X2 (8.7). I can't believe I spent money and bought Clear Sky. If Shadow of Chernobyl has similar issues I will be very angry.

I'd update your drivers. 8.7 is kinda old now.
Stalker for me has always been buggy. Good game when it works. For some it works great though.

Update your drivers to 8.12. The latest clear sky patch (1.5.6 and 1.5.7) brought directx 10.1 to the game, and catalyst 8.11 had a hotfix to allow the new patch to use 10.1. The hotfix is included in 8.12, so its just as good. CS may be having some issue where it is expecting you to have the latest driver that the patch was built for, and as a result is spazzing out.

Can I install the 8.12's over the 8.7 ?. What's the best method to update driver's ?.

You can install over the old drivers, but the best way is to uninstall drivers, reboot in safe mode, use drive cleaner pro to get rid of any traces of drivers, then some people like to reboot again and run dcp again. Then you install the new drivers.

I'm too lazy to do all that, so I just uninstall the old and install the new. It's worked fine for me so far.

I'm gonna hold off on the 8.12 Catalyst's due to the installation problems people are having.

You could always boot in safe mode and reinstall your old drivers. Remember: the only people posting about the drivers are the ones with problems, the rest (the majority) are too busy playing games to post.

disabled HDMI and then ran shortcut. Works flawless. Now to test with Shadow of Chernobyl.

Edit: Both series work.

Nice job. If they could figure out how to make their games have as few bugs as Valve's, they'd be millionaires.

I have the same troubles as you. It happened to me three times yesterday night, and its really annoying. I'm a pretty big STALKER fan, but man they suck at programming games.
