Low fps bc of shadows

Hi, I have a really annoying problem, Since my pc is kinda potato-ish the directx9 render or R2 render is impossible to use in the game, so i use r1 but i get 20, 50 fps on big areas (Empty ones) but in npc places like the village in cordon is really laggy gettin straight 10fps, wich is unplayable, i tried everything from using the weak pc mod to modding the user.ltx, However i found that the problem is the entity shadows (the shadows you see on boxes and ragdolls, mostly on sid's bunker wich is awfully laggy.) i tried using -noshadows and still they can be seen it's really odd since i can play all stalker games on r1 render included COC and Dead Air without lag spikes or stuttering let alone low fps.
is this related to r1_render.dll? if so can anyone provide a modified dll or a fix that can disable ALL the shadows for good?
Please anyone help me

i posted the same message on the moddb page.

Specs
2GB ram
320gb hdd
intel pentium 4 @2.60GHz
G41 gma 4500x express chipset
i know is a crappy pc but still good enough to play stalker games

Your best bet with a PC like this is to go to a static render, reduce scenery detail (grass effects) and just switch (and restart) to a dynamic render in underground areas.

I'm surprised that the dev team have not updated the system requirements since 2014. But it is what it is.
