details dissapear from distance

say i have a camera dolly, moving away from a posed ragdoll

as i get further away, shadows will suddenly dissapear and the face will suddenly snap back to default

is it some sort of graphics option? i have a good card and lots of ram

Try getting a new pair or glasses.

Looks like r_lod 0 did the trick.

Thanks.
