S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: LOST ALPHA Patch v1.3001 (2nd May 2014.)







The patch is savegame compatible, so you do not have to start new game for this patch, but for maximum experience (nad because of Murphy's law) it's highly recommended. If you installed 3rd party / user made fixes and mods for Lost Alpha retail, it's highly recommended to reinstall the game to have a clean install before you apply the official patch. This is required to avoid conflicts with the 3rd party content. We can not give support for such cases. Also if you are trying to load gamesave which you made while you used mods or fixes for the retail Lost Alpha, they won't work with the newly patched game. You will need to start new game in such case, because all previous modded content was saved to your savegame, which is now unavailable in game since new patch has new content.

HowTo / Notes

Extract Main Game Installer Archive

To extract the initial release 4-part rar archive - it is recommended to use the native 7zip utility as follows. Fill in "▉▉▉▉" paths as required for your system. 

# STALKER_ARCHIVE_PATH : folder with 4 part .rar archives for S.T.A.L.K.E.R._LOST_ALPHA_v1.3000_setup
# SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH : path to create installer directory for S.T.A.L.K.E.R._LOST_ALPHA_v1.3000_setup
# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
export WINEARCH=win64
export SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH="▉▉▉▉"
export SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH="${SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH%/}"
export STALKER_ARCHIVE_PATH="▉▉▉▉"
export STALKER_ARCHIVE_PATH="${STALKER_ARCHIVE_PATH%/}"
# fixed relative paths
export setup_folder="S.T.A.L.K.E.R._LOST_ALPHA_v1.3000_setup"
cd "${SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH}"
7z x "${STALKER_ARCHIVE_PATH}/${setup_folder}.part1.rar"
cd "${SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH}/${setup_folder}"

Tested with Wine Staging 2.7.

Install Main Game (only)

Install the main game only. Note: the third party installers are left intact - these will execute correctly with more recent versions of Wine (in both 32-bit and 64-bit WINEPREFIX's).

Fill in "▉▉▉▉" paths as required for your system.

# SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH : path to create installer directory for S.T.A.L.K.E.R._LOST_ALPHA_v1.3000_setup
# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
export WINEARCH=win64
export SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH="▉▉▉▉"
export SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH="${SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH%/}"
# fixed paths
export setup_folder="S.T.A.L.K.E.R._LOST_ALPHA_v1.3000_setup"
cd "${SETUP_DESTINATION_PATH}/${setup_folder}"
# run main installer
wine "setup.exe"
# setup necessary DirectX 9.0c dll overrides

Install patch 1.30013

This patch for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Lost Alpha is cumulative - so you only require the original game to be installed (version 1.3000) - before applying this patch. You will required the native unzip package to be installed in order to unzip the archive.

Fill in "▉▉▉▉" paths as required for your system.

Note: you will need to first cd to the correct path where you downloaded the patch.

# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
export WINEARCH=win64
unzip STALKER_LostAlpha_patch_1.30013.zip
wine start  STALKER_LostAlpha_patch_1.30013.exe
Audio Quality Fix

The bundled 32-bit Creative Labs OpenAL library - that S.T.A.L.K.E.R Lost Alpha installs is completely unmaintained. This library tends to gives ambient audio that sounds like you are underwater!! This problem is not just an issue when using Wine - poor quality sound reproduction is an issue when using native Windows as well.

The fix is to go the OpenAL Soft website and download the latest OpenAL Soft zip archive.

Then follow these instructions to set this new library up:

# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
# Get OpenAL Soft archive (latest version) - from http://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal.html
# Download this to: "${HOME}/Downloads"
cd "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c"
cp ~/Downloads/openal-soft-*-bin.zip .
unzip openal-soft-*-bin.zip
# Overwrite bundled all Creative Labs OpenAL libraries with OpenAL Soft libraries
export openal_binary="$(find "${WINEPREFIX}" -type f -iregex '.*\/openal-soft.*\/bin\/Win32\/soft_oal.dll')" 
find "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c"  -type f -iname "OpenAL32.dll" -print0 | xargs -0 -I file cp "${openal_binary}" file
# Tune OpenAL Soft settings for your system - using bundled Qt4 GUI application
export alsoft_config_utility="$(find "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/" -type f -iregex '.*\/openal-soft.*\/alsoft-config\/alsoft-config.exe')"
wine start "$(winepath -w "${alsoft_config_utility}")"

Fill in "▉▉▉▉" paths as required for your system.

Launching the Game

Either use:

# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
wine start 'C:\Program Files (x86)\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha\bins\XR_3DA.exe'

or:

# WINEPREFIX : standard Wine environment variable
export WINEPREFIX="▉▉▉▉"
cd "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha"
wine bins/XR_3DA.exe

These instructions are intended for use with a 64-bit WINEPREFIX.
