The first is how it normally looks. way too bright, I'm using the scanner in that screenshot, and you can hardly tell where it's pointing... and I wonder how many of you watching actually noticed the anomaly in the upper left corner.
every once in a while, you might come across a patch of darker floor textures... which shows how beautiful the floor *could* look like. (B and C).
I am playing on an ATI Radeon EAH 4850 1GB, WinXP. all settings to full except Dynamic Lightning set to Off, and bloom set to low. but I have tried setting everything to low and rebooting, no change on textures like these.
