    The starting gun is useless. You can do pretty well with them if you aim down the iron sights though, just not at any real distance.

    The bullet spread on it and the utter weakness causes the bullet drop on the starter few pistols to just be really strange. You can never quite tell with those guns if you are actually hitting anything.

    In Pripyat did they change it so you can have any two weapons on the hot swap rather than forcing pistol/main combo like in SoC?

    CoP is 2 weapon slots, anything goes.

    Starting out in the first game is a lot easier if you pick up the silenced pistol in a box inside that cabin thing next to that stalker that asks you for a medkit. It's a lot more accurate, but it's slightly less powerful. Ideal for headshotting your way through the first few missions though.

    The guns at the start are much worse than the guns at the end; I didn't bother with a mod to fix the bullet damage in CoP because I was willing to put up with it by the time I was further on in the game - but to deny there is a problem is retarded.

    Just a thought.
    I'd prefer to see the stop whining part myself.

    Or I could accept that bullet damage in all the Stalkers is broken, and stop apologising for it.

    Just a fact.

    The only fact here is you're a whinging moron who can't play games. Tell us again how you didn't like portal.

    I was trolling a little bit in the original Portal thread - see the Portal 2 thread for clarification on my true feelings - but I'm touched that you remember.

    O_o

    You didn't like portal?

    What is wrong with you man? You should be banned from games.

    Why on earth would anyone troll portal? I call bullshit, I put money on you being too thick to play through it.

    Portal is good. It's a great idea, and really well executed, but personally I just think jumping through Portals gets a bit boring.

    I said something to that effect in the original Portal thread and then I got jumped on by a bunch of tools so I played devil's advocate for a bit. The thread is there to read if you're that interested, I can't remember exactly what I said but I stand by every word.

    As far as being a whinging moron is concerned - I'm sorry I disagree with you over the bullet damage in the Stalker games. Maybe you should be less of a moron and deal with it?

    Feel a bit dense here but how do I get the 2009 complete mod working with the Steam version?

    Nerver mind finally found some instructions.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    It's clicked. \o/

    Loving it now. Once I got a decent weapon (AK-74) it really picked up, and even more so when I got a scope.

    Do remember to trade-upwards when the bigger calibre guns start appearing though. Plinking away at large groups of folks with a scoped AK become seemed pretty silly in retrospect. I stuck with that gun far to long.

    I've already found a couple of better weapons.

    Is there any way to increase your carrying capacity?

    Some suits might boost your strength - certainly the exoskeleton does, I'm not sure about the rest. Different clothes weigh different amounts though, so you can effectively increase your carrying capacity by wearing something which is lighter.

    Apart from that I'm not sure, some artefacts might do it?

    Tbh I find the best thing to do when you can't carry everything you want to is to ditch some items which you have lots of - you've probably accumulated a fair few bits of bread or bandages or something - you don't need to be carrying all of them around and you'd probably be surprised by how much all the little things weigh in total.

    Yeah, good point. But you never know when you'll need 15 loaves of bread!

    There's an artefact that lets you carry about 10kg more in I think all the games.

    Or you could download a mod, if you were that way inclined.

    It's better not to pack a load anything, an extra gun, ammo and a load of medkits was pretty much all I took, then ate the food I found on dead people. Mmm, corpse food.

    Fook sake I can't even play this now i've sorted it all out with the mod. The cooling in my one month out of warranty card is fucked so now at idle it sits at about 85c, going to about 110-115 on load which I can't play with.

    Not the time for me to be spending on a new card either so i've got to put this on the back burner again . I'll play it one day!

    The CryEngine2 build of this I heard was happening will probably be out by then so I guess that's good :p

    Speak the truth hussy!

    The videos I saw of the CE2 version looked no better than regular Stalker with the complete 2009 mod.

    Stupid question I'm sure, but what does this icon mean?
  • Deleted user 28 April 2011 18:10:37
    New mission on your pda I think - often it's something you're usually aware of, but haven't examined in your objective list.

    It's just anything new on your PDA, sometimes it's a mission, other times it's the oddly maniacal journal your character seems to keep.

    Thanks, makes sense. I've played about 14 hours now and it's finally annoyed me enough to find out about it.

    I love this game. It's rare when a game actually makes me enjoy playing in nighttime environments, but in this I think I actually prefer it.. Highlight of the game for me has been sneaking in to the Agroprom base with nightvision in the rain. Hell, I even took a picture. The atmosphere is sensational.
