Recently I’ve been getting an issue with the crosshair for the toolgun. It seems to apply exclusively to the toolgun, and doesn’t affect either the physgun or weapons.
Whenever I look up to a certain height (using wiremod, it seems about 7 degrees above the horizontal) the crosshair either spazzes out and reappears elsewhere on the screen, or vanishes entirely. This isn’t major, as I have smart-snap, but it’s a bit of a pain.
Some images for comparison:
My second, and much more problematic, issue is to do with prop lighting. It seems that if a prop is static for more than about two seconds it brightens out of proportion with the map. Picture for comparison:
This is a particular pain in the arse as I’m trying to film a machinima, and this just makes it look like shit. It’s only cropped up recently, some time after the latest update. I haven’t added any new addons since.
It only seems to happen on a few maps, such as gm_deepspace and gm_losingbattle, although I have had the same problem in the past on hl2 maps.
I am able to temporarily solve this by welding the prop to another and running around on the second prop. However, this is a bit of pain and something more permanent would be great.
My system specs are thus:
AMD Sempron 3000+
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M
If need be I’ll list my addons, but there’s rather a lot of them.
