Removing shadows on the environment
I saw a screenshot today where the environment had no shadows, like so:
But mine looks like this:
Those shadows are quite ugly, anyone know which command removes them? Thanks.
There are several ways to achieve this.
Basically r_fullbright 1 with r_mapoverbrightbits 0 , r_overbrightbits 0, then tweakup r_intensity from its default 1 should get u somewhat closer. In addition to that you'll need r_vertexlight 1 and a suitable r_picmip starting from 6 and higher (max 16).
I prefer r_vertexlight 0 tho, since u get the smoothest transparent lg/explosions with it, albeit at a slight fps cost sometimes.
You can also play with r_lightmap 1 with r_vertexlight 0.
I tried those commands and managed something very similar.
However, now that I've seen it in-game I don't like it, much prefer what I had before. :p
Thanks for the help though.
and maybe r_dynamiclight 0
Should only remove shadows and leave the rest as it is.
Fullbright lighting looks like crap and isnt in the screenshot he posted. That is vertex lighting (and before the lighting update i think, so you cant get it exactly like that).
The only configuration i have found that actually works with vertex lighting is this: (any other values of overbright/mapoverbrightbits make some maps much too bright or some much too dark)

Sorry, offtopic: Hey, trikzzz, can you share your HUD? :>
Those are the settings I already use.

Appreciate the help.
Sure, I didn't make it. Pretty sure it's this one: http://qlhud.core.ws/id/Qvxd45

If u mean that u want like the default config to simply be without shadows, then all u have to do is to enable r_fullbright 1.
