Ah perhaps that's my problem; I'm playing on a Mac so I mostly run the game under WINE, sometimes I can get away with higher settings but usually not for long, and I hate rebooting to play under Windows, ah well.

I don't suppose you have any idea what setting could be affecting it specifically? I'll try turning stuff on and off and up and down, but I would have thought it was just a regular beam effect?
