Started new game.

On my way through the developers cut, and I have decided that Dezoder is tightfisted, and is like a sister of mercy handing out crab fat, struggling to get any ammo, goodie's, artifacts, money, I am like a pauper Stalker, but you wont beat me tightwad Dez, I will struggle through, battle to the end, with skill, determination, and knowledge of the game, yeah.

Sounds like Sidorovich taught him well.

Great new version, but my memory is bad.

I downloaded and installed the big patch DC and it's running pretty smoothly. Occasionally has a CTD when a lot is going on. However, it's been a couple of years since I played original Lost Alpha. I got the case to take to Petrenko after sneaking into the Military South Base in Cordon. He then asked me to go to the mines and look for more documents. I only found one in the mines because the gates were all shut and irradiated, so I looked in the buildings and found several more. In the building with the elevator, the door up the stairs is locked. I couldn't find the key. So I went back to Petrenko and he said I didn't get all the documents, so I am heading back to the Forest. Where is the key? Is the last document behind the locked door? Thanks, I am enjoying the game and have a vehcile at last!

I think the door opens, when have killed all the bandits there. after that you should find the Bandit Leader and ALL the needed stuff in this room.
And one advice: After you collect the stuff - don't run to fast on the outside and keep your gun loaded…

It was the first time I entered the forest. I shot a couple of guys in the mines, but there was nobody in any of the buildings or on the roof. I hung out in the boss's office and even spent the night there, but no more bandits spawned. I think I have to get the mission to clear out the bandits before the leader spawns. I have a couple of vehicles now, so I'll be heading back there shortly (Dark Valley has several, as we know). I'll let you know how I make out. I have rescue somebody for Serify in the Forest next, so loading up on anti-rad and lots of zombie killing ammo. Thanks for the tip!

Dezoders new patch for the developers cut.

This is a message to ensure that Dez is aware of the crashing in the Generators X2, it has been mentioned elsewhere, there is no Fatal Error in
the logs just REFDEV1, as I have not reached that far in the developers cut release, I am not aware that the issue has been addressed already, but with Dez still updating the latest patch for DC this is a reminder.

Happy Hunting.

Thanks for that tip. I am way early in the game. I freed the Duty member from the bandits holed up in Darkscape, looted their secret room and shot it out with Borov. I haven't got the mission to get the contents of his safe, but got the combination. When I grab the safe contents and try to leave, I get a CTD before I can even get to the staircase. I guess I need to have the actual mission to avoid the crash?

Save not allowed!!

Hi
Playing developers cut and proceeded to carry out the task for Sackerov in the Dead City, played through the jail sequence, then carried on looting bodies, when I had finished and was about to return, I saved the game and rebooted, on my return to restart, I discover that I was back to arriving in the Dead City, I had lost all that gameplay, had to replay the level, tried to save again and received a message the the save was not allowed!!!, had to wait until I returned to Sackerov to carry out the save, this has never happened to me before, so others be warned when carrying out this task.

I think it's done this way to add more tension to the game. There could be a few straggler mercs who will try to drill you and the burer comes further out to mess with everyone. I think there's even an extra sniper around but he's way over by Sniper Safe, so you sort him next visit.

Additionally, the Pdogs might try to take your leg, but they always did. In any event, the "loot without save capability" might try to teach something about 'need and greed' - in that YOU decide how much you're trying for (usually EVERYTHING not nailed down) ... or chicken out and leg it back to Sacky.

There again, the devs might be trying to prevent various 'subversion' techniques that I docced in the wikia, and have "locked out" saving on the level, after the 'Thump', to prevent that.

RELATED: (Pro tip) After the DC merc scene and the run to Yantar - make a save to lock it in. Then go straight back to CD and run to Swamps, then run northwest a little to devalidate the heli attack, then make your way to Yantar.. saves a merry death-race through the reeds later on.
If you give the stuff you brought from DC to Sacky - this gets BLOCKED.

Have much fun!

As far as I remember, the "Save not allowed" is intentional but I could be wrong as it's a looong time sinse I played Lost Alpha.

Here is another problem:

I totally uninstalled my previous installation and deleted all folders and files in the "Stalker - Lost Alpha" folder and did a fresh installation making sure to allow installation of everything and doing reboots.

The game would not start, only gave me the generic "An error has occured" error message. Tried some troubleshooting using compatibility mode etc but didn't work.

Last thing I tried was renaming the user_old.ltx file to user.ltx and now the game starts.

So, if you do a clean installation as I did, remember to rename that file.

Is there a final fully patched state-of-the-art version available for download yet?

Not that I know of.
But it's being packaged for release at "the end of the week."
That's my understanding - as of a month ago...

To be fair, they're probably trying to fix a few of the issues that have been raised here that they were somehow unaware of.
