STALKER Pre-Alpha Leaked

Just as the noise from the H-L 2 beta release and of the methods used to procure it are dying down, a new early version has come to shock game developers.
Just before 2004 stumbled in, a Pre-Alpha version of STALKER surfaced on various P2P networks. Unlike the Half-Life 2 pre-release, this one, it is rumoured, is very playable and only needs some basic messing around with configuration files in order to work.

We were sent a screenshot from this release which does seem to be in full working order. It is certain that this build (1096) does not carry the full feature set of the game and that it definitely lacks the graphics and audio refinement which will grace the release version of STALKER.

It is however, important to mention that most Megagames readers who have contacted us, claim that the Pre-Alpha plays extremely well, with high frame rates and excellent quality on a wide range of, even the most basic, systems.

If the hype wasn't enough, this leak may prove an excellent PR weapon for the game's creators since it seems to be carrying out the job of a good demo. Let's hope the finished product will be just as good.

Not, bad, runs quite smoothly for an alpha (pre-alpha they say, whats that? I'm amazed it evens runs stably hehe), missing alot of stuff that has been seen in the later versions (in videos etc) but overall bodes well for the full release.

I just wanted to say:Tried this Stalker Preview, and after extracting the rar files i started the game, suddenly it crashed .. because of this fontssmall - error message.I took a closer look to every rar file .. and saw, that my winrar did not extract "every" subfolder and file .. the fontssmall folders are from rar-file number six on .. i just extracted every file from 6 to 9 again .. and voila .. it worked! ;-)cheers

GUYS ITS A FREKAIN ALPHA, and possibly your alphas are probably 2 years old.As for the CS sound, i m guessing they just put it in there for some sort of sound. I have encountered significnat amount of reading on how they acutally have an arms expert on the team, allowing them to portray the 'traditional' weapons in the most realistic manner, and how they have a guy who will provide actual sounds of all the guns (meaning they will probably have real sounds of their own).

also, those of you getting 'excellent' fps, don't get to excited. chances are the final release probably won't work on your computer. here what one of the developers had to say about sys requirements.Oleg: Here are the specs for comfortable gaming: P IV-1.4 Ghz / Athlon, 256 Mb RAM, GeForce 4 (or any other card of the same level). The PC hardware market dictates its rules and sets new limits for the games – the slower your computer and the older you video card is, the less details and effects you get. The better processor and video card, the better graphics you experience.. GeForce 2, GeForce 3, GeForce 4, GeForce FX cards and their counterparts have differences both in architecture and abilities so if your video card is more up-to-date you get more effects. For example, pixel and vertex shader effects (nice water surface, etc.) can be seen on GeForce 3 and higher cards. On the other hand, GeForce 2 will show an animated texture. GeForce FX will provide dynamic light sources and soft dynamic shadows cast from anything onto anything and bump-mapping on all surfaces which at least exceeds the Doom 3 technology.

ok well as for the performance on your sys i dunno i have a radeon 9800 pro and lowest i got so far is around high 30's low 40's fps wise! the readme says recommended requirments r 2.0 ghz processer and 512 mb ram and a geforce 5900 and it says these r not the recommend ones for the final version of the game when it comes out meaning the final will be lesser requirments!so it will play pretty good id say but not super great!as for the stalker encription wht do u mean by it? a password is needed is that wht? i was going to check the forums about it but the forums r down there :( at the moment! after u extract the winrar files that stalker is in u need to click on the ones that say run game or run demo to get it to work!as for painkiller it comes as bin and cue files so if u have a virtual drive on your system like alcohol 120% or dameon tools mount the image on one of them thenright click on it then hit explore then read the readme! it tells u to copy that folder to your hard drive and the launch paingame exe.and there u go it should strtu could also burn the bin to a cd with like nero just select burn image file or whtever it says in nero and burn it but i suggest gettin dameon tools or alcohol especially if u have no cd burner!peace!

STALKER Pre-Alpha Leaked

haha, right. soft dynamic shadows and bump-mapping exceeding doom 3 technology. nice try, though.uh, someone explain why a P-IV 1.4 and an Athlon 1.4 are considered equal? i'm no AMD fanboy (typin this on a p4 2.6c), but everyone knows a p4 1.4 is equal to about an athlon 1.1 at most. willamette core = suck.

STALKER Pre-Alpha Leaked

actually painkiller seems worth playing with how far along it seems in this release it seems like a big demo! and stalker it seems worth it a little if only u wanna see some of the prettyness it will have and wht framerate u will get but it doesnt have all the stuff though like its regular sounds and some missing details and such!
