My rig wont run it terribly well, but I didn't expect the sheer number of bug reports (I know the first one had its fair share in the vanila version, but they were essentially fixed in later patches) which kind of makes me want to hold off until they patch it.




You know whats really funny though? Their bug report is bugged... it wont work. "Would you like to submit a bug report?.... sorry, there is an error"

Yeah i hated the start of the game, then i got out of the swamps and i'm enjoying it more... and now, every time i load my fucking save the game crashes to the desktop.

>:(

On top of that, the fucking bug report DOESN'T WORK!

I hate Russia.

i actually really enjoyed the swamp, i liked exploring the place and running around in the dark with my night vision goggles on, really spooky.

you can find all sorts of stuff there too, i found a beat up vitor vss that fired all over the place and would jam after every round, i really felt like a hobo.

i'm loving the game so far.

Well, I was kinda expecting bugs after the first STALKER. I guess I will wait til more patches come out. :D

its in the swamp look for the train wrecks at the far end, its lying on the ground. its your same gun from the opening cinematic that you lost when the blowout happened.

a tip for settings, the game runs crap if you have it on max settings from the basic menu. my rigs p. sweet its got an 8800 gtx. set it on medium and then go to the advaced settings and then set everything to max levels (AA, AS, textures, shadows, etc.) the game runs really well then.

the difference with having it on high on the basic menu is that it gives much more detail to god rays and sun distance and shit like that (which isn't really that noticeable) you still get it but it just lowers the settings of it. its this aspect of the graphics that hurts performance the most, all the important stuff runs fine.

im running dx9 with full dynamic lighting.

After further consideration... fuck this game is a bugged mess!

Unfuckingbelivable.

This thing has memory leaks all over it and all through it, particularly to do with Sound driver compatibility I assume.

It's a pity because I'm really into the storyline and the gameplay (and I'm loving the AI! Well most of it anyway) but I can't proceed into Lemansk as upon entering and hearing the squad leader shout "Enemy 11 o'clock" it freezes and ka-blooeys! It's ridiculous. I've tried with EAX on and off to no avail.

I'm searching almost every couple of hours to find out whether they've released another patch yet because God knows, it's due.

Actually Windows Movie Maker is not a bad program even in Vista's new version. I found it quite resourceful but if I am going to do this big project, I need more editing power.

After having played Shadow of Chernobyl, I must admit that I never really considered playing Clear Sky until the inevitable patching had run it's course.

Note that I'm not defending the buggy release, more commenting on the fact that this turn of events was somewhat... predicatable given GSC's history. Definately a wait-for-the-patch purchase it seems.

yep, CTD is a real piss off!!!

I got into Dark Forest and get to talk to Chekhov about the commandant quest, but heading off do to it causes a CTD.

So far, the furtherest I have managed to go is the bridge.
The voice requesting help comes on, the sound stutters and...CTD, again. Sometimes I don't even get to the bus before it happens.

I even tried going around the lake, but nope, CTD there too, only 20 meters off the road...sigh. This weirdness happened 8 times yesterday until I got jack of it ><

I've uninstalled my realtek o/b drivers 3 times and tried different versions. I've tried 3 different versions of the nvidia drivers. I've reinstalled the game once.
After all that it still CTD 3 times in dark forest, no where else only there.
I've now started to play it for the fun factor and not worry about the story line.

Knowing what SSoC was like and knowing that SCS was running on the same engine I did expect bugs, but this Dark Forest stuff is totally weird.
I wont be bagging the game with expletives that are not necessary, but surely GSC could have put out a better game than they did, but the unfortunate thing about it is, some people are having a hoot of a time playing it...It just don't figure right :/

Well I'm going to reload SSoC and get back into the Priboi story mod and just bide my time and wait for the patches to arrive...

Patches, I'm depending on you son lol
;p
