[Update] Stalker Clear Sky: DirectX 10.1 patch 1.5.06 - version wasn't intended for release
Regardless of several upgrades players still have to deal with bugs and a sometimes low performance in Stalker: Clear Sky. The update to version 1.5.06 is the fourth patch for the game. It fixes some bugs and also integrates a DirectX 10.1 support.
The change log of the patch 1.5.06 for Stalker: Clear Sky reveals that several bugs have been fixed and the graphics have been changed, too. The graphics setting "Ultra” and support for DirectX 10.1 have been integrated for example. You can find the detailed changes in the change log. According to publisher Deep Silver all saved games from the versions 1.5.04 and 1.5.05 can be used with the new version 1.5.06.
The patch is about 53 MiByte big and is available for the retail and the download version of the game. Registered users can download the patch 1.5.06 for the retail version from our servers.
Update: We have been informed, that in the forum of GSC Game World (developer of Stalker:Clear Sky) moderators told the users that the patch 1.5.06 provided by Deep Silver (publisher of Stalker: Clear Sky) - the one we linked to ourselves - has not been fully tested and should not have been released in this state. Several users seem to have encountered severe problems after installing the patch. On the other hand users of our German forum already received noticeable benefits from the Deep Silver patch. Therefore we recommend you to be careful with the patch and wait until the situation has been cleared up.
Thanks to our user Yapa for drawing out attention to the matter.
