How to turn off HDR?

I want to play with bump-mapping and all that ps2.0 stuff, but how can I turn off HDR (it's a hard effect for my 6600 ;( ) separately without going to that ugly dx8 rendering without bumpmapping and normal shadows?

You can't. No patch will do it, for sure. You are confusing HDR with something else, though. HDR is not an effect. If you are thinking about bloom, it can be toggled using the option r2_bloom_fast.

No, you just don't understand what HDR is.

HDR is a High Dynamic Range shader that creates a post processing effect with advanced lighting for each pixel of a texture it applied to in a frame. As far as Im concerned the processing of a shader happens after all shaders did their job and we finally have the final pixel color. Then the processing of a final output high dynamic color happens. I could be wrong.
And Stalker uses HDR without any doubts - you can simply detect it by eye-adaptation effect it produces, makes warm colors even more warmer and cold colors - colder. And also it blooms dark pixels - which is odd.

But we need an option to turn HDR off. HDR is a heavy lighting effect.
And I want to play the game with HDR turned off without turning off bumpmapping as well.

No, HDR is not a shader and it does not create a postprocessing effect. Also, it is not a lighting effectm and it does not have anything to do with bumpmapping.

HDR is high precision calculation within the rendering engine - nothing else. It cannot be turned off in STALKER, nor is there any reason to want it off.

"high precision calculation" of what?

HDR is a lighting effect and I used to work with it a year ago or so. But its better explained it here, though far not fully as it can be

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_rendering

screenies are also there to show what it is

Of pixel colour. You really should read that article more carefully. It contradicts your statements completely.
