Every light i come across has a big black box with white edges around it :mad: I assume this is a video problem... i'm running with 256ram and a geforce 2 , with pretty standard settings so it runs all right... just the lights are stuffed. Help would be appreciated :)
i have similar set up and no probs, er...
u have latest video drivers? does it run ok apart from that?
And I'm guessing the box varies in size as you move towards and away from the light?
If that's the case remove all custom maps from \base\ and chances are it'll begin to work! Someone has borked up the light flare shader with their custom shaders so you just need to find the problem map and leave it out of base.
Is the map with this effect the Rift sanctuary with the boxes around the blue crystals?. I got this too, Ive just made it disappear by removing all my custom maps and am in the process of finding out which map sets it off.
r_flares 0 will solve your problem.
The map that causes the clash and the horrendous boxes around the blue crystal lights in Rift sanctuary is the Night Bespin 2310.
Shame cause I quite liked that bespin map. Strange, I remember some of the bespin textures in custom maps caused similar probs along your sabre length in JKO so it looked like a long stack of squares as if you had skewered pieces of toast al the way along the light emitting part of the sabre
Just a question Abu5e, where do you put "r_flares 0" ?
Hold Shift and press that key to the left of the number 1 (the ` key in the UK) to bring down the console then type r_flares 0...and it may solve your problem but it also removes light flares with make the game look better!
that key is called "squigle" or somthing, it looks like this ~
Yeah you see in the UK that is above the hash sign which is next to the Return key and isn't used to bring down the console...Oh and what we call the has sign is what the Americans call the pound sign - which over here is our currency!
Oh the woes of transatlantic variation in language!
