S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky xrengine.exe

A Question for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.

Does anyone knows how to fix "xrengine.exe has stopped working" on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky???

I have played and finished this game before since 2010 and haven't encountered any problems like this besides of course some bugs. I had a dvd installer but I lost it.

I bought this game last year 2020, this time from Steam and now I'm encountering this problem. It happened when I reloaded my quick save at Duty's Shooting Range at Agroprom.

I have searched through forums, youtube, reddit, etc. and it seems no one knows how to fix it. And if they have some  proposed solutions, it doesn't work. By the way, I'm not using any mods, just the original Clear Sky.

I'd appreciate all your help. I just like to play the 3 Stalker games again before they release Stalker 2.

     If you've recently installed windows or reinstalled some graphics drivers or any other things like these, then try to revert back to a previous state where your game was working fine. (Even windows 10's updates fucks up things so that could also be the culprit)

    Or If you're not using any mods or likely didn't mess with the gamedata/configs then probably your saves are corrupt. How are they corrupt? No idea, the original game is way beyond bugged still, i recommend you play with some mods and occasionally make backups.

    This won't really be a solution for your problem but i will share what i can remember.

    I think i had similar problem back in the days i was playing the game.

    My saves were getting corrupted and even after starting a new game the issue was still there, and for me seems like you are experiencing this  right now.

    I remember that even deleting saves wasn't helping.

    I would highly advise to reinstall the game, by first uninstalling it with something like "revo uninstaller" (something i use) that allows you to delete additional files and folders and even system registries left by the game.

    This might sound weird but try changing render you are playing on, it is in the basic video options in lightning type, and there should be a number at the end of each lightning method "(dx9)", "(dx10)" (something like this) and if it is not there change it to "full (enhanced?) dynamic lightning (dx9)". I remember that i had problems playing on anything higher than dx9 back in the days.

    Another thing, i would advise you to stop using the quicksave option. Instead open your console with " ~ " and type "save x" where "x" is whatever you want to name your save with, i personally go with numbers so save 1,2,3,4,5,etc. You can do that without going to menu.

    And last thing i would advise you to download "sky reclamation project (srp)" which is basically a community patch for the game and it is pretty much vanilla friendly.

    I hope anything of this will be helpful for you.
