Hello everyone! Sorry to bother you. I presented this problem before but now months later, I've located the exact location as to where I'm guessing is the shaders stop working. I still enjoy playing HL2 alot, probably one of the best storylines I've seen in a game.anyway on to the problem.
the shaders or whatever part of the game that deals with the lighting of the level happens right after the loading when I make the jump with the airboat off the large dam arriving at Eli's lab. I took the screenshot of the look, it looks so 90's but for some reason, the lighting or shaders appear to mis-load and it is a constant issue. I've deleted the local content in steam, then re-installed the game. But I can say 100% that it happens everytime.
Q: I know where the config.cfg file is, is there a command I can put in there to fix this issue?
I've played this game the last 10-15 times and can say it is at the point when I jump from the dam, the game loads then, whacko! there is no lighting to the level from that point on.
I appreciate ahead of time if anyone can possibly explain what is going on and how to get the work around going to fix this.
I found this on youtube. gonna give it a try but this should NOT be happening. but if there's another is another better option excellent and thanks
In case you didnt get the commands, they are here, type them in the same order as I put them.
If you get checkerboards after all this, try typing mat_dxlevel 80 after typing in all the above commands, thanks to João Victor F. S. Fernande for the possible solution, also notify me on wether or not this worked for you.
