It is that way in all the buildings hangars too, not sure what happened, if it was after a patch or drivers or what. Never used to be this way. p.s. ketch22 wanna try my 1.4 one on one? But no hiding in buildings :P

Oh and i have my brightness maxed out when i am in game... same thing.

Hi mate,

What you have here sounds like a shadow problem, your vid card is not calculating shadows properly so everything inside is black. Try disabling shadows in the game settings under vid card.

Good luck

Hey dr dimento,

You are using an ATi card so try this and it worked for me without jacking up the brightness on your monitor.If you are using at least the latest catalyst drivers or within reason.

Diplay Properties-settings-advanced-color-full screen 3-d-now once you've clicked that raise the gamma or brightness to around 1.30-1.65.I usually just raise the gamma and experiment until you find the right fit for you.

don't forget to click apply and now anytime you play a 3d game or the vid card uses 3d properties it will use this to apply gamma,brightness.

Good Luck

Oh and hey Ketch,the guy was asking for help not a lame comment on his PC setup.Help and stop spamming

It's posts like this that hurt a community, not help. I have run this game on a

PII450 192megs PC100 GF3 Ti500

now I did have everything turned down or off, but it ran just fine.

I have it on another machine as well & it runs just great. Asus P4T Socket 423\Intel 850 chipset\400mhz FSB Intel 1.5ghz\stock fan-heatsink 512MB OCZ PC800 RDRAM Visiontek Xtasy 6964 GeForce3 Ti500

Not everyone can just go out & buy a "new" computer. If you dont have anything to say that will help? Don't post.

Just wanted to say thx for all the help guys. I did all 3 suggestions, turned off lightmap, upped gamma and turned off shadows. Looks and works great now.

btw don't be too tough on ketch22. I have been around online gaming communities long enough to be able to take a little crap now and then, but I have been known to give it as well :)

Thx again..... and now to *pop* ketch in the head with me trusty sniper rifle.
