S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha is a stand-alone mod, which means that it doesn't modify the original game, it installs a completely separate game. This does however require an original version of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl to be installed, or the Lost Alpha mod will not start.

*Note for Windows 10 users:
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders like ENB or ReShade. If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then follow the steps in number 4 here: (LINK) *Pay special attention to the RivaTuner settings.
If this doesn't work, then Windows is somehow still blocking it. Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files.
