AlternativA 1.2

AlternativA 1.2 was released today into the Russian community and having it machine-translated and tested, I have to say, I'm really surprised. Being into the mod an hour, it's fantastic.
There is a whole new story, which takes place right after the plot of Shadow Of Chernobyl. A rookie (you), is sent to the Zone as a soldier working for the Army. Soon, you find out that you could also make money, by finding and selling artifacts in the Zone. You are given a choice either to stay in the Army and follow the plot or become a free Stalker and follow the deep rabbit hole down the Zone.
The amount of details in AlternativA 1.2 surprised me too much. In the army base, there were NPCs carrying crates, following orders, patrolling in squads, switching shifts, etc. If you want to stay in the Army, you have to follow a strict military code. Really strict. Killing an innocent stalker teleports you into the army base jail, where you are tortured by the troops and eventually killed. You will follow missions where you fly helicopters in Pripyat or even exterminate ghosts and skeletons.
The developers were also heavily influenced by Tarkovsky's "Stalker", you'll see why, once you've entered the actual Zone. I'm probably leaving out a lot, but you've got to find it out yourself. This is also a shoutout to all translators in need of some translating. I'd love to play the mod properly translated. The review of this won't be coming out before it has eventually been translated by someone.

What version of SoC did you use? I could only get it to work with the Russian version of SoC - not the international English retail version.

v1.2 runs for me with the US STALKER version, the translation added, and my initial user.ltx set to objects dynamic lighting. Also using the patched 1.0004 WW EXE with the increased address space. Mixed English and Russian text on the first screen. <g>

I had no problems installing and running this mod. However I don't know if it will crash while playing through it.

When you create a new game, and when it's ready to start, you will see some screenies looping with a message near the bottom of the screen, this appears to be normal and the message states something like 'press any key to continue'.

I installed to SoC v1.0004, changed within the localization.ltx file the language from 'rus' to 'eng', and renamed the folder 'text\rus' to '\text\eng\', and also changed within the text files the paths containing '\rus\' to '\eng\' - about 22 of them.

Sure is a dark mod.

I got the mod to run using "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.v.1.0006 (2007) (RUS) [Repack] от R.G.Best Club" which I downloaded some time ago. Default is 1.0006 but it comes with a 1.0004 bin folder that I am using.

Your Dialogue Helper (V5) worked flawlessly on both the text and gameplay folders. There are obviously some script files (news messages etc.) that need translating but the game is quite playable and the machine translation is not too bad.

I have an international (English) retail SoC DVD but I could not get this mod to work with it ... no matter what I tried.

First thing I noticed is that the PDA map does not show any detail of the initial map you find yourself in ... Predzone (Peacekeeper map from Secret Trails 2) .... and I cannot find the Military Commander you are supposed to find in "Military Town"

EDIT: Just noticed your text files path fix. I'll look for them and see if I can get this mod to work with my retail pack. Not good programming practice to have language folder paths embedded within code files. Changing localization should be a universal fix ... oh well.

AlternativA 1.2 .... adult version ... lol

In the link http://stalker-gamers.ru/forum/139-1225-1#33131 there are some additonal files (including a Lite version) and a "love story" supplement. viz.

In the fashion scene Alternative Version 1.2 with the girls (Love stories) removed, they can be returned to Install "Love stories". Supplement "-No Love stories" removes scenes with girls.
Both versions are only installed on the Alternative Version 1.2
Download Love Stories: http://www.alternativa-mod.ru/arxiv/Love_stories.zip
Download No Love Stories: http://www .alternativa-mod.ru/arxiv/No_love_stories.zip

Try this: I'm using the global version of the game.

In the text folder, create another folder and name it 'eng' then copy all the text files from the 'rus' folder into it. Then open the localization.ltx and change the language from rus to eng.
It worked for me and I was able to start the game.
