I'm @ work so I'll try to explain as best as possible...
A friend showed me this trick... Why he hasnt posted it here... I dont know but He should've... It would only increase competitive play and possible bring some old school players back.
This worked for me and I have Windows Vista, an Nvidia 8600
Click Save Batch File (Located on the Bottom of 3d Analyzer)
Name it whatever you want, save it in the Versus/System Folder
and your Flashlight and ambient lighting will be better...
I'll be honest... I'm seeing shadows I never remember seeing with my ATI Radeon 9500... Like in Club House as a spy I always heard about shadows by the computer but never seen them like this...
Thank You to the guy who showed this to me... If I missed anything I apologize, I will try to correct it when I get home. Or the guy that told me may post it here...
I formatted my drive because my PC was giving me an incredible amount of problems. I want to reinstall the game but cant find the CD. I may look for it tonight and reinstall the game. I hope to play tonight with my flashlight. Beware, I'm a better mrec now that I know how to play with and without my light This may work with ATI cards... I'm not sure... but give it a shot and confirm it here... spread the news I dont care for credit, I just think everyone should know so we have more competitive players come back... not these noobs that I'm forced to play with and against... also I'm tired of 7 player nights
for all those who use xfire, and who also have the problem of the light from the flashlight,
once solved this problem, they will realize that xfire does not work while playing a SCCT.
Below'm going to try and explain how you can make it work both (I have to say that if this
works is thanks to my friend predalien23).
The first step is to copy the original files scct_versus.ex and scct_versus.exe and paste
them into another new directory (on the desktop for example),
then they apply the patch as they say in the post these files copied to the desktop,
once it creates the batch file, right click to open and edit, at the end of the line of text,
it must change .exe for .ex ,the changes are saved. Finally must restore the original files
(unchanged) to the directory versus, in this way the patch is applied or batch file to the
original and detects xfire.
both my friend and I have Windows Vista, and a graphic GForce 8xxx, and both see the light
of the lantern and we can chat with xfire in game.
Only have to run the batch to be able to do both, if you start from SCCT xfire does not work,
I hope that helps.
Again to thank my friend predalien23 and forgiveness for any errors, my English is very bad and
I used the translator of google.
