Flashlight issues

12 posts in this topic

Hello, dear esteemed staff of NMRIH, i love your game very much, but find myself at quite a disadvantage because I am unable to see any iluminance from the flashlights, be it my own or a teammates! I have searched and found no other instances of this on the forums. I have adjusted my visual settings in every way imaginable but simply do not get any light to come out of the flashlights. Please help!

Thank you for your time,

-Rocketthebro

What version of DirectX is the game running with? It'll show this (listed as "Software DirectX Version") under Options -> Video -> Advanced.

Are you using a config of any kind?

Better yet...what is your system specs (if you don't know them just go to THIS website select a random game click run then tell us what specs it says you have (doesn't get any simpler than that :P )...

Yeah, I don't see anything wrong with your configuration that would cause the flashlight to not work. Did you use any kind of performance config setting like etrius mentioned?

Also, this is a shot in the dark, but what is r_flashlightrender set to?
