S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky (DX9)

What this does:
- Fixes bloom, sky, flickering ground textures & various haloing issues.
- Disables volumetric lighting from desk lamps
- Adds a convergence preset on the 'Caps Lock' key
- Adds a low convergence preset on the 'Right Mouse Button' (for aiming with iron sights)
- Adds a low depth, high convergence preset on the side mouse button 'Mouse 4'. Use this when aiming with a scope or when using binoculars.

  1. Download this ZIP file & extract it into the game directory. (for example: ..\STALKER Clear Sky\ )
  2. Run the game.
  3. In the Options menu, under the Video tab, set "Renderer" to "Enhanced Full Dynamic Lighting (DX9)".  All other graphics settings can be set to the highest
  4. Click on the "Game" tab and disable "Show crosshair". If you want, you can enable Nvidia Laser Sight (Default key: Ctrl+F12 )
  5. Click on the "Controls" tab, scroll down to where it says "Zoom" and set the side mouse button "Mouse 4" as the Alternative.
  6. Restart the game for the changes to take effect
  7. When in-game, press the 'Caps Lock' key and adjust the depth and convergence to your liking.
  8. Press 'F7' to save your setting. 

 Additional Notes:
- Keybindings for the above convergence presets can be changed in the dx9settings.ini file.
- To adjust the convergence or depth for the above aiming presets: Hold the button down and simultaneously adjust the depth & convergence to your liking. Before releasing the button, press 'F7' to save your settings.
- Sometimes when transitioning to another area, the fix gets broken. If this happens, press the Right Mouse Button to re-enable the fix.
- Some graphical mods may break this fix. I verified this fix works with:
  • Sky Reclamation Project (SRP) v1.1.2
  • Absolute Nature 2
  • Absolute Structures
  • Arsenal Overhaul v1.2
  • Atmosfear v1.3
  • Clear Sky Complete v1.1.2
