Submitted by imusrt on 8 April, 2015 - 20:07

Fullscreen (best choice *): SoftTH (DX9 x86). Shadow Fix **. In-game select massive resolution. OR Borderless: In-game windowed, quit. Edit %USERPROFILE%\Documents\ Stalker-SHOC\user.ltx (if folder isn't there, find in %PUBLIC%\Documents\). vid_mode ####x#### yours (no border). Shadow Fix **. ShiftWindow (+ border = borderless. If game minimizes, Alt+Tab back to it & try again).

(PLP screenshot with bezel effect)

A. ** Shadow Fix: removes shadow glitches. Edit ...\user.ltx. r2_sun_near 20, r2_sun_near_border 1.
B. Game looks good, but HUD & FMV videos are stretched. Not a problem.
C. Upon zone change in borderless, must trigger ShiftWindow again (infrequent).
D. * Fullscreen VS Borderless: latter recommended only if at end-game.
1. DX10 lighting option is only available for borderless, but minimal visual difference.
2. Borderless problem: main menu & inventory are completely visible, but partly inaccessible. Both can be used as-is, but inventory becomes pretty annoying.
3. Borderless workaround: use default hotkeys for health, & attempt keeping food on inventory pane's left side. Must occasionally revert to single-screen to sell crap.
E. Optional FOV (not needed, untested):
