S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Improved English Localization v1.05
This tiny mod fixes many of the lingual defects in
GSC's English localization for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. That is,
spelling errors, grammatical errors, funny sentence
structures, etc. have been fixed for various
descriptions, messages and dialog. The goal of
this mod was to fix the already existing text, NOT
to add my own distorted interpretations of GSC's
original text. Needless to say, some changes demand
sacrifice, and it simply wasn't possible to get
around some completely illogical sentences, so they
have just been replaced. I have done my best not to
stray away from GSC's original style - particularly
in the case of dialog - so if you spot any
inconsistencies or errors, please do not hesitate to
This mod does NOT require you to start a new game
and should be compatible with any other mod which
doesn't change default S.T.A.L.K.E.R. XML text files.
This mod was created using the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 1.0004
Worldwide version patch.
What exactly has been changed...?
- Spelling errors have been fixed.
- Grammatical errors have been fixed.
- Illogical sentence structures have been fixed.
- Sentences/phrases which made no sense have been replaced.
- Certain formal descriptions have been completely rewritten,
whereas the style of NPC-told rumors remains nearly identical
to the vanilla game: slang usage is still emphasized and broken
sentences are still present, to better convey the notion of
sponatenous sentence composition.
1.) Navigate to your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. root directory (default: C rogram FilesTHQS.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl)
2.) Open the file "fsgame.ltx" with a text editor such as Notepad, and edit the line:
$game_data$ = false| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
... Such that it looks like the one below:
$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata
All you have to do is change the "false" to "true".
3.) Extract the contents of the .zip file this readme was in, to your S.T.A.L.K.E.R. root directory. Once done,
the directory "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobylgamedataconfigtexteng" should have been created.
Simply remove all the files placed by this mod into your "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobylgamedataconfigtexteng"
If you would like to help in advancing this mod's
progress, please report any errors you find by
posting a screenshot link in the thread whose link
I've provided in the 'About' section of this readme.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is full of textual errors, and pressing
a button each time you encounter one is effortless.
