Re: Shooters with RPG-like tendencies

That's strange, looking at the comments there's not a single one that's saying it doesn't work. Is the path correct? It should be X:\MAINGAMEFOLDER\gamedata\ inside gamedata there's supposed to be a folder structure that goes config\weapons\ inside weapons folder should be the .ltx files for all the...

Re: Shooters with RPG-like tendencies

I'm not aware of any mods that remove the damage to armor/weapons... I think they did it pretty well in CoP, not very well balanced but the system itself works well. You can pretty easily modify those values yourself if you don't find a mod for it... that's what I did, along with a whole bunch of ot...

I think the reason may be that there are some really good katanas available in SoU, then that choice would make sense. I don't know this for a fact, I never played that part, most of my time with NWN was spent in PWs.

Personally I always liked the bastard swords for my chars, when I have points to spare for Exotic Weapons. But the choice of weapon should really depend more on your character type... as in you should decide what weapon you will use and THEN get the proficiency that matches. The way you phrase the q...

Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled with FC3 myself... especially after I realized that crafting and skills are largely useless gimmicks, just something for the devs to put on the features list... and hunting too, more of an annoyance then fun. But you can't argue that it is a damn fine looking game... a bi...

Oh, sucks about GW2 combat I was under the impression that it's very similar to WoW... Oh well. Will look some more into SW, maybe watch some gameplay vids or something. Yeah I really want to like FO3/NV, but the whole desert thing is much too depressing for my taste, and the fact that there is very...

I assume you mean DA:Origins, that one I actually finished... if they (anybody) could somehow add the party control (tactics) system from DA:O to WoW I'd throw all my money at them! I'd probably grow roots in front of my PC. DA:O has almost everything I want, except loot and exploration. TBH I don't...

It does have some of the things I'm looking for, but it also misses a few. I tried to get into Amalur a couple of times, but it just didn't hold my interest. The story feels flat, and while the environments are pleasing to the eye there is no exploration to the game, it only looks open at first glan...

To be honest I pretty much gave up at this point... I've played pretty much every recent (and many not so recent) game... Basically I'm looking for WoW but without the MMO. But I'm picky, I really like the environment of Oblivion, but I hate the loot and character progression systems. I really like ...

Anytime :) Glad I could be of assistance.

I've been posting topics similar to this one in other forums myself, only I'm not looking for a shooter, so I know it's not easy to find *the* game to play :P have fun with your slew!

I've no clue what, if anything, it actually stands for, I always assumed SMRTR as in smarter... The way I merged was to get both, then install one, install the other in the same place without overwriting the files, and then I used WinMerge to compare the files that both mods changed and merge them. ...

The SMRTR added weapons and armors can be found ONLY in the hidden green cases, and you'll have to look around, they're not just sitting out in the open. All the vanilla gear is available same as it is in vanilla (drops, traders, stashes.) Customization is good considering that it's a shooter and no...

Awesome, I'm almost as excited as if I'd just received a copy... I mean if I didn't already have one for years. edit: One of the important bits that I also recommend is a mod that expands FOV, it's pretty low in default STALKER games, and at decent resolution doesn't look very good... personally I u...

Yup yup, a lot of the more expensive games occasionally pop up somewhere for next to nothing... I just got Crysis2 for a dolla! (along with a couple other games)

Naw, check on Amazon, they often have bundles with other games and those are much cheaper. There's an action/strategy bundle for 7bucks it's got STALKER CoP, Grand Ages Rome, Shadow Harvest Phantom OPs and Storm Frontline Nation... I've not heard of these others except for Grand Ages though. Anyway,...

No, no skills unfortunately. The recently released mod Misery2 does have specializations, classes basically. There's sniper, recon and assault, your stats (carry weight, weapon/armor profs) will change depending on spec. It's not a major impact on the game, and all of those numbers can be tweaked in...

Yeah, I also hated that in the first game, eventually mods added repair kits so that was ok. In the third game you can get repairs done by mechanics, they're also the guys that do upgrades to weapons and armor. If you liked the atmosphere and the concept of ShoC then you should def try CoP, it's muc...

Which STALKER game did you try? The last one (Call of Pripyat) plays quite a bit different from the two earlier games. It's set on (only) three large maps instead of the dozen or so smaller ones that the early games used, and these maps are really open, you can go anywhere within the boundarys, exce...

Hm, I seem to be on a roll with resurrecting old posts today... What's wrong with all of you peoples?! Not even a SINGLE mention of Mass Effect? It's exactly what the OP is looking for, RPG/FPS hybrid. And I absolutely LOVE the STALKER games, especially the first and third ones, Clear Sky was quite ...

I realize that this is a very old post, almost a year old at this point. But for those who may have the same question... I'm pretty sure that without mods the "story" dungeons will not respawn, BUT you can go to one of the vendors in the town (the only female vendor) and she sells dungeon maps. Ther...
