    Stalker and EAX/Creative Alchemy: worth it?

    I'm thinking of replaying the Stalker game, and since I last played them, I got myself a Creative sound card, which comes with Creative Alchemy. This should allow me to play the game with EAX, so I was wondering: is EAX worth it in the game, or does it not make a huge difference to the regular sound?

    You know, I honestly don't recall if it made much of a difference (I don't think it did for SoC), but then I'm comparing a quick runthrough from a few weeks ago to when I played 9 years ago.

    Anyhow, word on the internet is Stalker doesn't need ALchemy since it's OpenAL native. Why not toggle it and see what works for you?

    Its worth replaying Stalker at any rate, especially with a couple of good mods.

    Sounds like a plan. I'm definitely looking forward to returning to the uncanny naturalism of the Zone (and getting my face chewed on by mutant dogs).

    EAX is broken in all the Stalker games even if you use Alchemy. It only works with some mods like Lost Alpha and Oblivion Lost Remake.
