post #711 of 5927
Just started COP today, pretty awesome so far. I love the upgrade system, I think I may miss it when I go back and replay SHoC, unless OL adds that in. Also plays really well on my system. I always notice when they do benchmarks now, COP is on there, and usually gives quite a beating maxed out. Doing good so far for me though, a few slowdows in fps but nothing to bad or constant.

You will, I haven't played CoP but going from CS to SoC I really miss it.

I went into the Red Forest Rambo-style just to see it before I went out, and quickly was overloaded with radiation, even with the eco suit
The eco-suit is the best rad protection and has decent bulletproofing so I like that one for red forest. For sure you want that one or the SEVA or the Duty equivalent of the SEVA if you earned one of those from the Duty colonel in the Bar area.

If you have a crystal or urchin (or two) you should equip that as well. You can get a crystal from doing the 'clear the bloodsuckers lair' mission that you can get from Freedom trader. I think you can also get it from the 'family rifle' guy in the Bar as well (as the 2nd mission he gives you), but not 100% on that one.

If you didn't do 'meet the guide' (check your PDA), you MUST go back and do it or you won't be able to get the 'real' ending, which majorly sucks to miss out on. You miss out on like 2 hours of good gameplay, and you miss out on the 'real story'.

I dunno, to me it kinda seems like the weapons in SoC are already pretty close to the way the same guns perform in CS/CoP when maxed out. There's a few exceptions, but ... for the most part this seems true.

I do like some of the high-end options that can be applied to the Vintar and Tunder rifles in CoP though that you can't get in SoC ... trouble is you can't get these until you get to Pripyat and get the calibration tools, by which time the game is nearly over.

Crossfire should def. work with either Dx9 or 10. You really wanna play it DX10 if you can.

But yeah, CS maxed will bring a couple 4000-series cards to their knees, esp. in the very beginning (which is as difficult as teh graphics ever get in that game). I'd recommend only 2xAA and putting all the dropdowns (ssao, sun quality, sun rays) down to medium (or even low if needed). Everything else you should be able to max.

Yeah I was reading up on tweak guides and it sounds like the sun rays from 6-8 in the AM and PM are FPS killers. I switched to DX9 and dropped all the sun options down to medium and it gives me much better fps in the first camp.

I'm not sure why CF wasn't working on DX10 but only one card was heating up when I was playing. I'll have to mess with it some more later.

I was highly anticipating this game..and

I HATED it.


It felt like a second job more than a game.
It was very difficult for me..but besides that it was ugly....

Well if you played SoC it is like 3.5 years old, of course it will look quite ugly in comparison to games coming out today. Mods help a lot though.

As for the second job thing, not sure what you mean by that.

With Complete Mod 2009, SoC looked nothing short of great.

How far did you get?

If you don't learn to survive the game world, the zone is very unforgiving (raaaaaage quit). However getting into the right mindstate, it is a wonderful place to explore and survive.

Especially for SoC, Complete Mod 2009 or any high texture quality mod that changes the graphics, the game looks amazing. STALKER games always start off slow. Before you know it, you just spent endless hours without even realizing it. You get so involved in the game and don't want to let it go, from my experience.

Yeah it took me three attempts to get into SoC. The first two I managed to play 10-15 hours and still wasn't able to get into it (both times using Oblivion Lost). Tried a third time with Complete 2009, and I'm loving it.

How will my rig run CoP?

Downloading the SoC complete 2009 mod, I got as far as the mission where you're told to find Ghost then decided I wanted the mod
