STALKER: Call of Pripyat Questions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
See second post for relevant question.

Original Post:
For whatever reason, the game always starts in small screen mode with the video. This inevitably leads to graphics issues once the game starts up. Is there any way I can get the game to load in fullscreen? A command such as "-r fullscreen" in the shortcut menu or something along those lines.

I've also ran into an issue with my Logitech G5 mouse. For some reason, the profiles won't seem to load so I can't use my extra mouse buttons for things like crouching and going prone. Any ideas on how to get the mouse drivers to recognize STALKER? I've tried setting up a profile with both xrEngine.exe and the StalkerCOP.exe files and neither works.

I am overwhelmed at the amount of responses!

OK, so new question anyway. At the very end, you have a choice of leaving the zone with the choppers. What happens if I say "no" when given the choice? It seems I just sit in Pripyat and kill things until I'm out of ammo or die... Am I missing something?

I have the same issue with STALKER opening in windowed mode. One of the reasons I never got into playing it. Bothers the hell out of me to have to go into task manager then open the game from the taskbar.

There's probably an easy solution but the fact that it's happening at all on a game that should have been ready for prime time is annoying.

Kinda like my issue with Mass Effect trying to go to the configure page as soon as I hit PLAY, which for some reason results in a crash of the configuration page.

I've used two installations trying to figure that one out. I've also given up hope there.

Alt+Tab a few times and it loads just fine from the window to full screen.

After messing around, it appears that I can still go about my business in the other areas of the game and leave the Zone later. Kind of an uneventful ending for the game compared to the previous ones.

Yup, if you don't leave it's free play and AFAIK you never get chance to leave again.

Sorry no answer on the earlier question ... never had that issue

Garry will let you leave again, I've discovered.
