16:9 resolution freezes the game on load

Hello!
I have a strange problem: SOC and CS freezes on load. The problem is the resolution. 5:4 works perfectly, but Id like to play without the black bars...

A belated welcome to the forum, Kazemeka.

It should run at 1920x1080 if it runs at 1280x1024. I'm not sure what you mean by "freezes", but here are some suggestions:

Start with a possible solution to "freezing":

http://www.metacognix.com/stlkrsoc/CrashesStillInTheGame.html

The intent here is to pinpoint what is causing the freezing. If the game is locked up, there are ways to close it. The goal is to see the contents of the log file after a freeze. You can also try to ctrl-V paste into an edit box, but that is not reliable, and if it does work it is limited to the exception specifics -- there might be more information in the log file.

Also look at this troubleshooting FAQ:

http://www.metacognix.com/stlkrsoc/TroubleshootingFAQ.html

One common problem with higher resolutions is the inability of the monitor to work at the refresh rate set in the user.ltx used by your game. See the FAQ for more; there may be more than one user.ltx and you want to change the right one. Make sure vid_mode is set properly and rs_refresh_60hz is set to on.

Or it might simply be a driver problem on your PC. Any other related hardware/driver/software details you can provide? What version of STALKER are you using and where did you get the game?

I don't get to post much these days, but I'll try to be more available to see if this issue can't be resolved.

Thanks for the reply! I'll be sure to check the problem out.
Altough going to desktop and back into the game fixes the problem (Untill next load)... Weird..
