Car lights independend from shader settings

Post by aXu » 19 Aug 2011, 09:51

I can't play night tracks because my computer can't handle "nice" shader setting fast enough. However, I don't see car light being very taxing process (the car shadows run fine, and I see this is not too different) so I think it should be a separate option or always on since it clearly affects gameplay.

There should be no gameplay-wise benefits for having better computer.

Please introduce headlights for all shader settings, without shadows for the lower settings if necessary - just let us see where we are going on night tracks!!! :pil

I have to agree with the posters here - it should be a no-brainer to allow car lights to operate without using shaders.

Not even a reply? This is a pretty big issue imo.
