Big light boxes in Europolis

Glitch Europolis

Best Answer Morten , 24 October 2014 - 17:31

Yeah, we hope to have fixed this issue soon. Sometimes it's kind of difficult to know if people are seeing the same thing as we do, and determining if what some people are seeing are actually bugs or if it's maybe just personal flavor pitching in. At least the way the lens flare is intended to work there are occasional "box" flares, but nothing so major as to render the effect annoying.

We know, however, that some users with Intel and ATI/AMD cards are experiencing a blooming side effect of the lens flare which is not part of the bloom from other objects in the scene. Many of these users have also mentioned a bloom/lens flare effect coming out of some characters' eyes, making them look like they have l4z0r eyes!


This issue we hope to have fixed shortly. :)

Hi guys.


Not quite sure if this is the same issue as the l4z0r eyes bug. I get it occationally during cutscenes, but never during gameplay. It's annoying but not gamebreaking, and I thought it was being fixed but after reading through this thread I'm not so sure it's the same issue. The example below is from the very first scene in Reborn, but it turns up on Etta, Queenie and various other people in cutscenes in both chapters. Not always but enough to be noticeable.




I have a Toshiba Satellite E45t-A laptop with what I believe is an integrated graphics card, Intel® HD Graphics 4400.


Another thing I thought I should ask about. Weren't the random snippets of conversations heard out and about in Propast going to be reinstated? I still don't get them.


Thanks for your patience!

It looks like it's from the same family of bugs, even if it's not explicitly the same bug.


I think it's probably an issue with your integrated Intel (which is a chip rather than a card).

It does look somewhat related. Are you playing with SSAO on? If so, try turning it off. It can cause that kind of effect on some cards.


About the snippets of conversation, they're still there for me. I think their presence is dependant on your graphics settings, as lower settings remove some of the NPCs. I can't quite recall what RTG has said about adding them back in though.

     I hope someone can help me with this "box" issue in the city. They are so annoying I quit playing the game months ago. I have all the updates, tried all the different configuration settings. Nothing helps. 

     I have an AMD 8-core FX-8150 processor 3.60ghz, 8mb L2 cache with 16gb ddr3 sdram and a ASUS Radeon HD7770 gpu w/2gb gddr5 ram. My OS is windows 7 pro 64b.

     I would really appreciate any help I can get. I love this game and I want to continue playing it.

     I don't know how to take a screenshot, but they look just like the ones posted by Plintstorm.


     I hope I did this right, I never posted before.

Have you tried disabling lens flares in the settings?

That should fix most of the weird box issues. If it doesn't, someone else might have some more suggestions.

I'm not sure if this is related as well but disabling everything does not solve the lens flares / weird lights in the eyes for me... :/

This looks almost like the eye-texture is missing. You could try verifying game cache if you are on steam. (You are using the latest GPU drivers, aren't you?)
On the topic of all the (un)purposefully broken shaders I am looking forward to the Unity 5 switch, since as far as I understood most of the lighting shaders will be redone.

Jon93 Are you forcing the game to run in DirectX 11 mode with a command line switch? That can cause Zoë to get Vampire-eyes.

Not that I'm aware of. I see no command lines in steam or anything and I have never fiddled with any such settings for this game.


The eye textures are there Istrum at highest settings (although not at lowest it appears) but they are riddled with reflections from light sources in front of the character. But I'll try verifying the cache and see if it works, thanks.
