Here is the long awaited third patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha. Due to the changes in storyline and engine, it's required to start a new game after you installed this update. Your previous saves made with 1.3002 will not work. This patch is cumulative, so you will not need to install the previous (1.3001 or 1.3002) patch at all.
Unpack the zip archive somewhere and run the setup. This will wipe the previous patch's content, as well as the gamedata and the bins directory from the game. So, if you had modded files, make sure you back them up before you run the patch. Beware, mods for the 1st patch will not work with the 2nd until mod makers make them compatible.

☢"For the great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."☢
