Map covered in darkness

Hi guys, I joined this forum just to fix something.

I’ve lately joined an rp server due to a friend’s request, and the map isn’t working out very well.

See this map :

The images, that’s how it should be, but when I do it, the whole map is covered in darkness. I can see the silhouettes of the buildings, but the light isn’t there, it’s just dark and I can’t see well.

I was using -dxlevel 80 while I played on it, and I also used -dxlevel 70 when 80 didn’t work. I haven’t yet tried the original, as I doubt it will work.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

I want to hurry and start playing properly, but pitch dark maps aren’t helping.

Yeah, get a PC that can handle DX 9/10.
