>>> INSTALLATION <<< The Easy Way
Downloadable v14.08 Gamedata folders. Two sets to choose from, posted by Napalms, or by Achillesdave. Copy either gamedata folder to your Stalker SOC game directory. Everyone should add the newest translation (below). STEAM users must add the adaptation to SOC V1.0005. Edit fsgame.ltx before playing any mods. Change "false" to "true" ($game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata). Add -noprefetch to the game shortcut so the mod has more working memory (other options: -nointro, -noshadows). Read the "Hard Way" instructions for more tips.
Achillesdave's 8 part version, posted 18-9-2010: Narodnaya Solyanka v19.04+14.08+03.09 for SOC V1.0004. "This is the latest version of the mod with all patches and translation files already applied...". Extract each archive with 7-Zip. Carefully combine eight Gamedata folders into a single Gamedata folder. You should never find a Gamedata folder within the Gamedata folder. Gamedata Properties: 14,614 files in 990 folders, 6.44 GB. Restore default crosshair: edit Gamedata > Config > System.ltx cross_length = 0.015

Trouble getting started, using the "Easy Way" installation:
Make sure you have a working Stalker installation before you start adding a mod.
- A corrupt User.ltx file can prevent the game from loading. Rename or delete the current User.ltx file. The game will create a new user.ltx file.
Can have a "broken" mod installation from many causes.
- Installing into an existing Gamedata folder belonging to another mod (so start CLEAN).
- A Gamedata folder can be found within the Gamedata folder (be very careful extracting and copying the files).
- Achillesdave's Gamedata is not a single archive in several pieces (as you might expect). It was uploaded as eight discreet pieces. These eight gamedata folders must be extracted, then merged into a single Gamedata folder, with the subfolders intact. Could easily miss a part, or end up with a gamedata folder within the gamedata folder. Either one would mess you up.
- Adaptation to SOC v1.0005 (Steam patch level) gamedata folder was not installed correctly. A missing adaptation will crash the game with this error: "XR_3DA caused BREAKPOINT in module" & in the log "msg_box_kicked_by_server".
Game loads to title screen, but crashes when loading a game.
- Trying to use old saved games (must start a new game).
Game starts but looks like ordinary "vanilla" Stalker.
- Missing or misplaced mod Gamedata folder.
- Fsgame.ltx must be edited to enable loading mods from a gamedata folder.
In-Game Issues, and some Gameplay Tips:
The translated Guides answer most gameplay questions, but also expose spoilers which were kept hidden on the original online Russian guides.
Crashes in Cordon, early in the game, when talking to Wolf or Sidorovich. Broken installation. Reinstall the mod in the correct order. The adaptation to SOC 1.0005, if needed, is installed last.
Exit and restart the game every hour or two. Make frequent named saves. The mod is filled to bursting, and crashes now and then. Most crashes are one-off. Simply load a saved game and keep going. Autosaves will usually load ok. Saved games may not work in a few places (center of Labyrinth & crowded multi-story underground levels).
Sometimes an object (gun, npc, or mutant) is in a bad location, and causes a crash. First try loading the Autosave from when you entered the level. Next try loading an older saved game, made at the previous location. You may have to wait for an emission to come and go, then reenter the problem area. Very rarely, a more stubborn crash may require editing to remove a buggy object from the game, or changes to alife detection distance.
Play a clean game by picking up junk. Sell it to a trader, or toss it into a fresh corpse. Don't load NPCs with junk. And the Russians say, don't be a hamster. Big stashes put a big load on the game engine.
Cut the load on the game engine. Make more ram available to the game. Be sure to run the game with -noprefetch. Have a large swap file. Consider using the Deadmoroz optimized texture pack. Go to Static Lighting (DX8) or reduced visibility Dynamic Lighting (the usual fix for Swamp Level rendering crashes). Don't take on too many jobs at once, especially when you are cooking many artifacts at the same time.
Never transition from level to level, or save your game, during emissions, or between 10 and ~10:30 every night (Horror Time). You might catch the "can't sleep" bug, or something worse. Horror Time events in underground levels may also cause problems.
Very long loading times are normal. Devs postponed a planned release to do a major reworking, chasing down bugs and optimizing the mod. A good thing IMO.
HUD and Inventory Icons are corrupt. Game starts ok.
- Mod lacks low-res versions of these textures. Go into Video Options and make sure the Textures slider is set above the midpoint. A patch is available for truly weak video cards.
Crash fixing patches, for TEMPORARY use, when needed. Play from the last good save, created before installing these scripts. Recommend saving copies of your original files. Restore the original files after passing the problem area.

DMX Mod by Shadows, Optional Expansion for Narodnaya Solyanka
New weapons, sounds, textures, shaders, and gameplay options. You can even buy a car.
"The mod is designed for powerful machines!" (Recommend 4G ram, x64 OS).
STALKERSOUP Project an English language version of the popular Russian mods Narodnaya Solyanka + DMX 1.3.4, from a group led by Tecnobacon. Released July 30th (30-7-2011) as an open BETA test. The mod team is adding new features and rewriting the game code. The standard version retains the dark decayed look of the DMX DKZ 1.3.2 Mod. New texture packs, and revised scripts, offer improved performance. An optional mod add-on, The Collector, is integrated with the package.
We are lucky to have Tecnobacon on this forum. Find the latest information, or post your questions and comments in his

This is a playable BETA release, poised to become the best English version of Peoples Soup, and to continue growing from there. But do not expect to play through the complicated 200 hour+ plot, after all, this is still a Beta version of the mod. Many issues have already been fixed, jump in and have fun. You can help by testing and reporting. Send those reports to the tecnobacon.com email address.
Installation: Copy mod Gamedata folder to a clean install of Stalker SOC patched to V1.0005 (the Steam patch level). This mod needs 13 Gigs of HD space. You can edit the TB3D_Modders.script file in Gamedata>Scripts for the type of game you like. Add -noprefetch to the game shortcut so the mod has more working memory (other options: -nointro, -noshadows). Game graphics look better if the User.ltx file gets some small edits. Recommend at least a dual core system with an x64 OS, 4 Gigs & a strong video card. Tecnobacon suggests lower spec machines can try playing with reduced Vision Distance, or switch to Static Lighting (with brightness and contrast turned down one notch).

DMX DKZ English Forums at GSC:
Crashes from ammo_20x85 or stalker_no_yurik.ogf. GSC forum member Pepcok studied these DMX DKZ 1.3.2 issues. Patch 21-03-2011 added the ammo and changed Yurik, leading to crashes. The Weapons Pack file Arsenal.ltx fixes the ammo bug. The Unterminateable Mod fixes the Yurick bug. Pepcok recommends installing the Patch of 21-03-11, Weapons Pack, and Unterminateable mod (preferably with a new game to enjoy all of the add-on features).

The Collector CS134 Mod, by _dAVROs_. Re-released 16-6-2011 (June 16th). Expansion pack for NS+DMX+DKZ V1.3.2. Not tested with vanilla NS or DMX. A version of this mod add-on is included with the Stalkersoup DMX 1.3.4 project.
"The Collector was an experienced Stalker that roamed the Zone finding rare Artefacts and Fauna. He had a special ability to find them but this exposed him to the dangers of the Zone. In his travels, he left Stashes with some of his Artifact finds and notes which had clues of other stashes in the Zone. They are well hidden, look carefully and think about the cryptic clues. Follow his clues in this Zone "treasure hunt" to find his main stash".
* 8 new Artifacts, * 8 new mushrooms. "Completely Redone English dialogue. Balanced artifact immunities and cost to fit NS + DKZ. Credits to 'Valerich' & 'Charsi' who originally created this mod. The Collector starts after dialogue with Sid".

Narodnaya Solyanka (by Arhara, the mod "director"), the DMX add-on (by Shadows), and the Tecnobacon or Darius K Zoot English NS-DMX packages are amazing mods. Narodnaya Solyanka means Peoples Soup. It is a huge compilation assembled from many mods. The vanilla SOC story is still there, along with several hundred hours of new quest content. DMX has the same plot, with even more stuff added. Darius K Zoot put his own touches on DMX 1.3.2. Tecnobacon's Stalkersoup team has done a major rewrite, with the aim of creating the ultimate Stalker NS DMX 1.3.4 experience for English players. The standard mod plays well on a 2 Gig system. DMX might play ok on 2 Gigs with Static Lighting and a reduced view distance. The DMX-DKZ version uses 3.3 Gigs of ram in my game on Full Dynamic lighting and the Maximum quality preset.
Played through the entire plot, finally finishing the game back in the fall of 2010. Been playing these mods for about two years. Maintain a summary post, with links and instructions, on the GSC-Game.com site (the source material for this thread).
I've brought a few mod posts here to the Steam forums. These are Russian mods which have an English translation, and will play on SOC 1.0005, the Steam patch level. Hope you will enjoy playing these mods as much as I do. Go through the vanilla game first, maybe with ZRP, or another "bug fix" mod. Get a taste of some of these familiar mods (Priboi Story, Complete, Oblivion Lost & Lurk). Then play some Old Good Stalker Evolution Mod, OGSE 6.9.2 (Best Stalker mod I've found so far, now better, with the new Feb-14-2012 English hand-translated version) http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1824965, Secret Trails 2 Mod (An entirely new plot. Tougher than NS) http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1824790, and the big Narodnaya Solyanka / DMX mods.
Priboi Story Overhaul is a good mod to try after finishing the original game. LoboTheMan on the GSC forums has been refreshing the Priboi Story mod. The original mod, developed in English by Team Dez0wave, gives you a new story to enjoy in the familiar SOC locations. Link, original mod: http://www.moddb.com/mods/priboi-story. This version adds new guns, textures, sounds, and more. Read about it here: http://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=c...0987&sec_id=17 and in the back of the big Priboi mod thread: http://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=c...1630&sec_id=16

Loving this mod, just found it about a week or so ago. Tried NS DMX dkz first. Cave jarateed me off sooooo much and I had to use the save to get past it. The mod was just too much though for my PC it seemed (constant stalling) and I'm trying vanilla NS now. Tried my damnedest to get through the cave again but still had to cave in (*groan*badjoke*) and use the save to skip it too. Seriously, I hate that cave, but everything else is amazing

I still cannot get either yours or the DKZ to be stable in steam, the swamp is unplayable for both but at least DKZ dosn't crash in the vanilla areas. I think more attention is needed before the steam version will be stable. Trying to get 1.3.3 patch is a pain, it never worked for me.

SOC game engine struggles to render the CS Swamp features. Static Lighting or reducing visibility for Dynamic Lighting gets me through the Swamps ok. Low memory PC's, 2G or 32 bit OS, might also want to try the Deadmoroz texture pack on a standard NS install.
More info in this Mar-27-2011 Pseudostomp post NS DMX DKZ thread. Updated to include add-on silencer warning. http://www.gsc-game.com/main.php?t=c...transl=#337113
DMX 1.3.3 is just out, and still untranslated. I'm waiting for Darius K Zoot to work his magic. An updated tweaked and translated version is in the works, but slow going (work is keeping him busy).
@Bad_Motha, Just hit the highlights. Key install sections are bunched together in the top post and marked in bright yellow.

Just finished CoP for the fifth time (twice with complete. Beautiful!.. beautiful!) which is far too pedestrian and streamlined :P

Needs better mirrors, megaupload only allows a few downloads per 24 hours.
Maybe some nice person could make some torrents out of these?

Don't know if this is what worked but, I reinstalled steam on an ssd last night which forced it to install outside the programfiles(x86). Steam asked me to remove compatability settings which did not exist so I hit cancel and installed anyway. Now I am running at extreme without CTDs in ALL locations (radiation is toooooo much tho).
