air_resistance_k: air resistance, the percentage, which is taken away from the flight speed of the bullet (I FINALLY GOT MY ANSWER!!!)

---END QUOTATION---



Can someone shed some more light on this? It's a tantalizing but incomplete answer.

I've noticed that shotgun ammo has this value set to 1.5
I assumed that meant they lost velocity 50% faster than normal.
But i take it that's 1.5% velocity lost every ???
Every what? millisecond, meter traveled?

At what rate is this percentage removed?

Language conversion


---QUOTATION---
It may be possible that BG is starting to get stingy?

Hope on over to the windows site. They have just about every question possible answered on any subject.

Yeah, I just had a look at the Windows Help. Apparently, you're supposed to get special language packs that are better than the normal ones if you've got Vista - if you download them off the net. Which sucks, coz I've got a really crappy connection, so it'll take forever. You'd think something they were selling for over $800 would come with all the parts...
---END QUOTATION---



I though I would interject here to give you all a work-around for language converting. I take the "cyrillic" text in whatever stalker file I want to translate and c&p to http://www.convertcyrillic.com/Convert.aspx, it will then convert to russian and then simply c&p that to http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ to translate into the language of your choosing. It may need a little grammatical correcting but it works for me.
Hope this helps some of you.

Actually, I bought the $60 "Don't-tell-anyone-coz-we-got-it-cheap-on-wholesale-and-we're-not-supposed-to-sell-it-that-cheap" edition , but when it first came out Ultimate was retailing in stores at $800.

You don't install it manually from the disk. You have to go into control panel and do it through region and language settings or what ever they changed it to in vista.
---END QUOTATION---



Tried that, it's still saying it can't find any language files.

Just a note: changing default encoding to Russian does not change your system language. It only changes the default encoding for non-English ASCII text. One notable exception is NVIDIA's drivers, which attempt to guess language from the default encoding, instead of actually using the system language.

You have to go to control panel and go to region and language options. From there go the the last tab on the right and select all the language packs that you would like to enable from the large window containing all of the check boxes. Then, from the drop down menu, select Russian and hit ok. It will prompt you a few times about "Do you want to install blah blah" and "Which disc drive is it in?" all that lovely crap. And after it is done Russian will appear correctly. You will have to restart though.

Yeah, with this I think I have earned the right to add a little suprise in my next release. I think it is more the appropriate for use in the zone. Listen closely if you ever decide to play it.

WOOTZOMGWTFBBQHAX I R GOTS TRANSLATIONS!!!! (Or a weapon modders primer)

I would just like to say Microsoft FTMFW for giving me every language known to man(and in multiple code formats) on one disc.

Now for the tranlastions. I will start with weapon accuracy:

fire_dispersion_base: the angle (in the degrees) of the base dispersion of weapon (weapon of that stopped up in the vises)

cam_relax_speed: the speed of recovery to the initial position

cam_dispersion: increase in the angle (in the degrees) with the first shot

cam_dispersion_inc: increase in cam_disp with each shot after the first

cam_dispersion_frac: [stem will rise on] cam_dispersion*cam_dispersion_frac +- cam_dispersion*(1-cam_dispersion_frac)
^^^^
(I believe now that cam_disp controlls the acc. of the first shot, cam_disp_inc either controlls the second shot or adds itself to cam_disp after the first shot, and cam_disp_frac follows the equation for each shot after.)


cam_max_angle: max recoil angle

cam_max_angle_horz: max horizontal recoil angle

cam_step_angle_horz: (degree) size of step camera moved in horizontal position while shooting**

use_aim_bullet: Is supported first [supper] the bullet*

holder range modifier: by how many times increases eye_range (I believe this refers to ironsight zoom?)

holder_fov_modifier: by how many times increases eye_fov (depth of field?)

fire_dispersion_condition_factor: an increase of the dispersion in the percentages with the maximum wear

misfire_probability: the probability of misfire with the maximum wear

condition_shot_dec: an increase in the wear with each shot

These were taken from the untranslated notes in the abakan.ltx weapon file


Next ammunition:

hit_probability_max_dist: dist after which hit probability is considered (refer to system.ltx for hit probability values)

air_resistance_k: air resistance, the percentage, which is taken away from the flight speed of the bullet (I FINALLY GOT MY ANSWER!!!)

time_step: the size of the step of time (in miliseconds [milisekundakh]), on which they are lost (the time it takes for bullets to disappear after shot?)

min_bullet_speed: the minimum speed (m/s), at which the bullet still is counted and shows (here is an interesting one!)

collision_energy_min: the percentage of energy the bullet will lose on collision with a material

collision_energy_max: the percentage of energy that will remain in the bullet with any collision

(I'm not 100 percent sure what energy refers to but given the example numbers( 0.5; 0.7; 0.5) I think it is an x,y,z projectile velocity adjustment



After reading over the explanations and with my modest experience with weapon modding I think that all of the percentages are based 1 being 100 percent and .00 being zero percent.
