I changed some values in the user.ltx, and now I really decided I just want the stock values... unfortunately I forgot to make a back-up. I tried deleting the file and starting the game up, then exiting for a new file... but it seems to hold the same values as the old one, even after a reinstall :
are you starting a new game or working off a save.
Both. It doesn't seem to reset the values I stuffed in there for the sun bias etc. when I start a new game, but simply pulls them out of thin air somehow, like maybe those settings were saved in some dll or something.
Which graphic setting are you using extreme,high,medium, or low??
Extreme, plus a few tweaks to the left and the right on some sliders. Custom brightness, contrast, gamma. But, there are settings in there that I know I changed to a different setting, and they stay, like its kept in the registry or something...
I use the same here is the main graphic stuff from mine: cam_inert 0. cam_slide_inert 0.25 cl_cod_pickup_mode 1 cl_dynamiccrosshair on g_always_run on g_autopickup on g_backrun on g_corpsenum 1 g_eventdelay 0 g_game_difficulty gd_master hud_crosshair on hud_crosshair_dist off net_cl_icurvesize 0 net_cl_icurvetype 0 net_cl_interpolation 0. net_cl_log_data off net_cl_pending_lim 3 net_cl_update_rate 35 net_dedicated_sleep 5 net_sv_log_data off net_sv_pending_lim 3 net_sv_update_rate 30 ph_frequency 100.00000 ph_iterations 38 r1_dlights off r1_dlights_clip 24. r1_glows_per_frame 2 r1_lmodel_lerp 0.33 r1_pps_u 0. r1_pps_v 0. r1_ssa_lod_a 16. r1_ssa_lod_b 64. r1_tf_mipbias 3. r2_aa on r2_aa_break 0.800000,0.500000,0.000000 r2_aa_kernel 0.5 r2_aa_weight 0.250000,0.250000,0.000000 r2_allow_r1_lights off r2_gi off r2_gi_clip 0.05 r2_gi_depth 5 r2_gi_photons 100 r2_gi_refl 0.9 r2_gloss_factor 4.5 r2_ls_bloom_fast on r2_ls_bloom_kernel_b 0.7 r2_ls_bloom_kernel_g 6. r2_ls_bloom_kernel_scale 0.75 r2_ls_bloom_speed 40. r2_ls_bloom_threshold 0.3 r2_ls_depth_bias 0. r2_ls_depth_scale 1. r2_ls_dsm_kernel 1.5 r2_ls_psm_kernel 1.5 r2_ls_squality 1. r2_ls_ssm_kernel 1.65 r2_mblur 1. r2_parallax_h 0.5 r2_slight_fade 2. r2_ssa_lod_a 42. r2_ssa_lod_b 36. r2_sun on r2_sun_depth_far_bias 0. will this help you??
Oooh, looks like you installed the Ultra Graphics mod, or use similar settings? My PC hates the R2 stuff, makes the bar unplayable. ;P Gonna reformat soon I hope.
I am, actually...

there's a very easy way to completly reset the user.ltx
just delete it and start the game (not a new game, just double klick the icon) and a new user.ltx will be created... you'll just have to do all settings again...
Didn't you read my original post? Lol. I already did that... it doesn't reset the graphics values, such as sun bias, etc. It leaves them all the same.
some of these original setting can be found in the config folder if you have unpacked the stalker gamedata files
