So, Nat. You write good fiction for a living, do you?

I'm using Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1. And I keep getting a crash to desktop when I load any of my saved games. It didn't happen at first I had no mods installed and the game worked every time. Then I installed a weight mod and it still worked...for several weeks then out of nowhere it starts crashing again.

This is what I get in the log under fatal error

[error]Expression : hFile>0
[error]Function : FileDownload
[error]File : E:\stalker\sources\trunk\xrCore\FS.cpp
[error]Line : 106
[error]Description : c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\stalker shadow of chernobyl\gamedata\config\

Now i had a CTD problem before and I cleaned my registry and did other things to remove everything SoC related from my pc and the game worked but that was a tedious process and dont want to have to do it again

I would suggest you read the "A Fable to Relate the Answer to a Common Problem" by NatVac about four posts up, he mentions the hFile>0 error and why it happens and how to fix it in the story.
and btw,you shouldn't have posted this in the "sticky" section

Hi guys, I've a big problem: I'm playing stalker (eng) with the Arsenal Mod 1.2 and it crashes when I load a saved game in the garbage...(not the autosave before entering that zone).

Roll back to v1,04 patch. v1.6 was recalled due to numerous bugs
v1.4 is the most stable patch

-- ill reply with natvacs statement:
2. Find your log file.

STALKER uses two places on your hard drive to store information. The game and associated resources are in the STALKER installation directory, which by default is on the C: drive in the \Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\ directory.

The saved games and logs are on the C: drive by default in the STALKER-SHOC subdirectory. In Vista this subdirectory is under \Users\Public\Documents\ while in XP this is found in \Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\. You can also access this directory by entering %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents\STALKER-SHOC in the Windows Explorer address bar.

The latest error log, called xray_<your_user_login>.log* is under STALKER-SHOC in the logs\ subdirectory, while the saved games are stored in savedgames\.

*<your_user_login> is usually your name, the one you see at the top of the menu when you click on the start button on the taskbar in XP. If your user name is Robert, for example, then you would find a file named xray_Robert.log.

At the end of that file is usually a section that starts with "FATAL ERROR" and has lines beginning with "[error]". Include those lines in your post to give us an idea of what is wrong. Sometimes there is only a single error line, but it might be enough.
--

You dont need anything to read the .log file, apart from wordpad or notepad. Im shure you will get this done

--
5. Post with the right info.

In your post, please include the following information:

PC particulars: processor, amount of RAM, video card, sound card (even if "on-board" )
Operating system with version (e.g., XP Professional - SP2, Vista Home Premium)
STALKER locale and version info (e.g., world-wide patch 1.0004, US 1.0)
What mods, if any.
The level where the problem occurred.
The log file "FATAL ERROR" section, and ONLY that section, unless requested.
A brief description of what you were doing when the crash occurred.
Anything that you think might be useful for us to know.
 
Each word should be at least 3 characters long.
