S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Chernobyl
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Chernobyl is a stand-alone mod. It doesn't modify the original game, and it needs to be installed in it's own folder. However, it does require an original version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat to be installed, or the mod won't start.
* S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Pripyat.
* About 10GB of free HDD space.
1: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Chernobyl 1.5 R6 Full (LINK)
Download and unpack to where you want the mod to be installed. *This will become the game-folder.
2: Structures Redux 2.1 (DOWNLOAD)
Download "SR_CoC_2.1.7z" and unpack to the game folder. *This file has been repacked for easy installation.
*As a courtesy to the creator, here is a link to the original mod (LINK) If you download from the original source, just make sure to copy the files to the right folders, then choose which of the optional files you want and copy those as well.
3: Stalker Two-K (LINK)
Download and unpack into a temporary folder.
A: Open the "FX-Pack_Addon" folder, and move the content of all following folders into the game-folder:
BetterFlashlight *Open the folder, choose either version and move the content. I recommend "Long Range(50 meters)"
Nightvisons *Open the folder, choose either version and move the content. I recommend "Animated Green"
B: Open the "Grass_Pack_Addon" folder, and move the content of "Grass_COC_4k" into the game-folder.
*Note: Don't copy/move "Stalker Two-K". These textures are very large 4k textures, but the quality looks like stretched 2k textures, They will take up 4 times the video memory, but they won't provide any visual difference, compared to the 2x textures below.
4: Stalket Two-K Tiny (LINK)
Download and unpack into the game-folder.
*Optimized version of the above textures. They use significantly less memory, and provide the same visual quality.
5: SEP-COC-ReShade (DOWNLOAD)
Download and unpack to the game folder.
*Note for Windows 10 "Creators update" users:
The Windows 10 Creators update introduced a wide variety of problems for games, especially when using custom renders like ENB or ReShade. Fortunately this can be fixed in two simple steps (LINK)
*See number 4: Fixing the Creators "update"
If this doesn't work on your OS, try downloading the ReShade core files from here (LINK)
After installation, delete everything but the dll file, then copy everything but the dll file from SEP-COC-ReShade, so you get the right settings, but keep the dll from the official ReShade installation.
If this doesn't work either, then there is still something in the Windows 10 Creators Update that blocks the custom dll. If you are unable to fix it, you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without.
6: Start S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Call of Chernobyl
Before starting a new game, make sure all settings are at maximum.
*I strongly recommend turning motion blur off.
