    They're pretty much the same. The only difference is that the latter is helping a dying civilization.
    Apart from Metro being an underground tunnel shooter with sci-fi weapons and scripted events and Stalker an open-area sandbox game with realistic weapons - yes, they are like twin brothers.

    But imo it makes no sense to start a Metro vs Stalker flame. Both have their beauties, besides, apple and pear, besides, both have features one would like to see in the other.

    It seems that after reaching a certain point, the mercenaries will just vanish into thin air

    Is there anyway to change resolution out of game? I got a new monitor and now the game won't start up.
    Go to C:\Users\Public\Documents\STALKER-SHOC, find user.ltx , open it with a notepad and you should find a line at the end called vid_mode . You could try editing that value.


    Are achievments in CoP only avavible in the steam version of the game? Or is it in a patch? Because I have a physical copy, and I can't find any achievment lists anywhere.
    The "Achievements" in Call of Pripyat aren't shown outside of the game : you can access them through your PDA (stats screen IIRC) and they have to be "earned" again on every new playthrough since they're not "achievements" like the cosmetic awards from other games : they're basically the game's way of saying that you have completed a quest chain and made an impact in the game world.

    I was referring to the comparison of Zone stalkers and Metro stalkers but okay....

    Nah, they're entirely in-game. They're only related to each playthrough. If you make another playthrough you can get different achievements.

    I see. So is there a list somewhere in the game, or do you have to look at the wiki?

    Once you get an achievement, a notification pops up and you can see the achievements you have gathered and a brief explanation about them in the stats screen of your PDA.

    Edited:

    Most of the achievements are related to plot and game spoilers so do not look at the list on the wiki until you've beaten the game

    If you open your PDA (Default P), and click on the statistics tab, you'll see a list off all the achievements you've gained so far on the left hand side. To be clear, these aren't achievements in the traditional sense, they're more like perks you pick up as a result of actions in game.

    i'm actually semi-inclined to say metro stalkers are more badass than zone stalkers... I mean, the surface is a seriously fucked up place in Metro.
    In the game the surface isn't really much more dangerous than in stalker, but in the Metro book it's seriously hell on earth. If stalkers are on the surface during daytime they'll be permanently blinded.

    What kinds of graphics mods can CoP take? I really, really like the rays of sunlight in the morning and the realistic darkness of night but it doesn't seem... complete. Something's off (Things like guns being WAY too bright and lights not having a "haze" around them a la GTAIV)

    So far, running absolute nature + AtmosFEAR but the game doesn't seem to want to behave in DX10 or DX11 mode for some reason

    I'm pretty sure it comes with one. You should do it anyway and become a manly STALKER.

    Ah yes, sounds like you need Complete, A.K.A. Vanilla 2.0. It's the best thing since sliced butter and will make your game better in every way with no downsides whatsoever. Made by the glorious and magnificient Artist Pavel, whose genitalia largely exceeds the average among males, there's is nothing better you can get to spice up your game.

    Beat CoP, and I know you guys get this question all the time, but what mod should I download. Preferably something with more guns (quests too maybe?) And is compatible with Atmosfear.

    To make this post not totally worthless here are a couple old Gmod screenshots I made a long time ago.

    I like SGM, I'm not sure if it comes with an old version of atmosfear or not. I'm pretty sure there's a way to run the most recent version of Atmosfear with it, but you'd have to ask somebody else.

    Second one looks like concept art.

    It's pretty good. I recommend trying it, at the very least.

    Stalker Online is out of beta!

    Although AFAIK it still doesn't work on Steam versions of CoP.

    Swartz 1.3 feature list
    Anyways, here's the latest in addition to the features I posted last time:

    More weapons added: PP2000, KSVK, Sako TRG-22
    Added ability to loot money from corpses
    Added a medic that spawns after Tremor dies (thanks Gannebamm and ThunderFreak)
    Added Amik smoke particle effects to my shell ejection particles and adapted an Amik effect for weapon smoke from firing
    Lots of new weapon sounds (FAL now sounds like a proper 7.62x51mm weapon)
    Footstep sounds included from Misery (thanks N.Aaroe)
    Replaced sprint animations for lots of guns (thanks to marsalandrei)
    Revamped damage from guns, NPC damage and player damage
    Fixed a few bugs based on feedback and adjusted some mutant spawn locations to avoid conflicts
    Added a debug script to the radiation system in-case it screws up and
    leaves the player with an animation playing when it shouldn't (thanks to
    gannebamm for the script, this should help pinpoint what is going wrong
    for those few select people)
    Added select new music from S.T.A.L.K.E.R Music Expanded for SOC by Sclera
    Special characters now have special guns. Examples: Merc squad leader in Zaton has an M249 w/ eotech, Bandit leader in Jupiter has a Saiga with a drum magazine, etc.
    Sergey Grigorovich makes a special appearance...
    Re-enabled as many attachments as possible for weapons, NPC's will diversify with them as well
    Creatures move faster, do more damage and are more irradiated
    Replaced weapon models for RPK, Abakan, Saiga.

    I think this is one of those things that people look at years later and wonder "Who the hell is that guy and why is he on this mod?" without knowing what we went throught. Then they look up the guy's name and go "oh". Then they proceed to ram a RPG down his throat.

    He should tell Degtyarev that he's "Hiding from the lynch mob" and that they "already blew up his Ferrari and van full of Pepsi in Kiev"

    Edited:

    Oh yeah, and if the player accepts a quest from him with a super cool reward he cancels it half way through for no reason.
