    I've got this weird graphic glitch when playing the tunnel/flashlight part in the mission "Victor Charlie". The NPCs are blacked out or silouhetted. All the other items and props are fine. When i exit the tunnel and the flashlight goes off, everything's back to normal. Here's a couple of screenshots to illustrate what i mean:

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Do your bugged images look similar to mine?

    Really? I sought assistance from MSI (my card's brand) and just got a reply a minute ago from the MSI forum moderator, he said its a bug bec. he went through the tunnel with the same issue. I linked screenshots as well. Looks like we're not alone. Well, thanks so much for buzzing me with a reply. It really made me feel better knowing its not an exclusive defect. Good luck.

    Must have been an nVidia bug as I had no such thing when I played. Unless patches in the past 6 Months or so did something funky, I quit as the game sucks.

    could be. I even tried another vid card but still the same. Oh well, but i'm not giving up just yet.

    Maybe there is a gfx shader effect which could be turned off via developer console? To me it looks like the reflection shader could have a problem because theres no global light in the tunnels, maybe thats why it shows black rather than have no reflections at all.

    Just an idea of course. Dunno if 'reflection shader' is the right word though.

    I certainly hope its something we can access. The only file i know that can be tweaked is the config file but i'm not bold enough to touch that.
