Due to the lack of a proper MULTIPLAYER SCREENSHOT BUTTON (Fix this Ubi) I had to try and bind one myself... and it only captured the first 640x480. Anyway, with all details on high, 1024x768, this is what my shadows look like.
(This is on the side of the forklift, just infront of the spy start on warehouse BTW.)

Wow, way to go ubi... I didn't know chainlink fences bent light so that shadows appeared as squares.

Wow, I think you might want to invest in a new video card, or possibly a new screenshot program?

If you think I'm in that dark corner down the hallway, I'm in the dark corner you just walked by.

You can take a screenshot with punkbuster. It's pb_getss. You can find more info here (http://www.evenbalance.com/publications/scpt-pl/index.htm).

my shadows used to be kinda bad, but not that horrible. I highly suggest updating your drivers, especially if you have an ati. Their newest drivers specifically say in fixes "fixes issues with Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow shadows not displaying properly"

Snag those new drivers and i think you should be fine

Keep in mind, I havn't hacked the Default.ini and set anything up (Only Anistropylevel really semi helped this.)
I've got a 9600Xt, it really shouldn't have problems running these shadows (Shadows everywhere else look great. Especially in FarCry.)

does that ATI patch really work? You have seen before and after? Cuz I tried them once and it didn't fix the shadows, did they make another new patch? I see it says that in the description, but I'm incredulous.

The funniest thing is... they're a DOWNGRADE from the original.
