I broke S.T.A.L.K.E.R. SoC. Ooops

I watched 5 minutes of a speed run through S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl. The player got to an area it took me a few hours to get to. Then I decided that I didn’t want to ruin the game and switched it off.

Not quick enough. Around 4:04 into the video the player jumps over a fence that shouldn’t really be scaled. It was soon after that I stopped watched but out of curiosity I tried it too and ended up on a flat plain until I got to the edge of the world ..

Panoramic Mod? It might be part of the Complete mod I’m using in the game. I had to double back and watched as buildings popped in and out of existence. Obviously I was on the wrong side of them! I somehow walked through a wall and got back to where I was supposed to go. Phew.

I love S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl but not the bugs …

One of the missions in SSOC leads you into the X18 Lab where you have to contend with all manner of nasties including poltergeists that love nothing better than to fling barrels and other heavy goods at you. So when I managed to find the location where the second entry code was supposed to be I was quite relieved! With growing frustration I searched fruitlessly for several minutes. I knew it had to be on the body of a scientist. I even watched through a walkthrough and noticed that body suddenly appeared on the ground which gave me an idea.

Yes, even though the body is missing, it’s still there. Argh! The rest of the level was great. I loved sneaking past the guards outside. Very creepy, very tense.

Now, does anyone know who this group portrait is of? I found it close by in a small side room. This was using the Complete 2009 mod of the game btw.
