stalkerS.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, the post-apocalyptic shooter has just been released and we’re planning to review it really soon, but until then we have to deal with some problems: crashes, freezes and errors of the game that are being reported by quite a few gamers. Below we’ll try to find out some solutions to STALKER: Call of Pripyat’s launch crashes, freezes as well as the “Cannot find Fsgame.ltx” error in the game.

First of, as always, before trying to fix the game, make sure that your computer meets the STALKER: Call of Pripyat system requirements and you have downloaded the latest drivers on your machine! Next, it’s fixing time!

According to the solutions on the official forums, the Call of Pripyat crashes and freezes don’t have a solid fix yet, but there are a few tricks you could try:

– user TOK2 says :”Found that the game does not like XFire for some reason. Not sure if it has to do with STALKER’s copy protection scheme or what. If I shut down XFire, it starts every time.“
– another user reports that the crashes and freezes are connected to FRAPS. So if you have FRAPS turned on and the game crashes, it certainly wouldn’t hurt turning it off!
– and the final “might work” trick to fix the Call of Pripyat crashes comes from Refan who says that you should uninstall Securom from your machine (in order to do so, download the Removal tool from the official Securom website).

Apart from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R crashes, some users reported the following error showing up upon launch: “Cannot find Fsgame.ltx” To get rid of this nasty little bugger, all you have to do is delete the file user.ltx in the C:\Users\Public\Documents\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – Call of Pripyat folder.

Hope these fixes helped you get rid of your STALKER: Call of Pripyat problems, crashes and errors. Please share your experience with us in the comment section below!



  1. Another fix the the launch crash: “Cannot find Fsgame.ltx”
    is to launch from “Stalker-COP.exe” directly from the folder and not from the shortcut or :xrEngine.exe”.
