Defualt Maps Turning Pitch Black.

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

This has been happening for a while, im on de_dust or that map with train i forget name, and after about 2 rounds it gets a little darker when im outside in the sunlight area and suddenly goes pitchblack after darkening alot or just suddenly after darkening some for about 2-3 seconds.... i got some ss's and some video of it, but since i have never uploaded a video and the size's are huge, i want to see if anyone else has had this problem... on cs_office, de_dust2 & some other defualt maps it has never done this... i think it may be becuase o fthe sen effect in these maps... if this is an issue withanyone else plz tell me and if there is a fix plz tell me... if this new an dyou want pic's i will post pic's... or if u want me to upload recording i will but i will have to edit it and it will take a while since i have never done it.. i dont play those 2 maps that often but it just bothers me, btw idk if it does it on any other maps as i do not have the time to go all around and wait for it to go black... (places were its happened, near t spawn up stairs and on ramp a few times, mostly under the big roof with starts thingy or in tunnel near t spawn or going to bomb. happened in train map only where its outside with trains near bombsite A and monstly when on roof) Thx and sorry for my spelling, im tired :P

    Both de_dust and de_train (the map with the train :P) use HDR effects, so it may have something to do with that. You ought to post your computer specs and the settings you run CS:S on, It may help people get a better idea of the situation. It might be a good idea to upload a video of it to YouTube and post it here so people can actually see the problem.

    It looks like an HDR problem but I don't know enough about it to say anything more on the subject. I recommend bumping this thread in six hours or so when hopefully more people will be on.

    Seeing how you run with anti-alising 2x and graphics on high and you use custom models, I have to give you props. Do you lag like hell?

    I recommend trying de_train with hdr off , if it makes a difference its obviously hdr related. You could try updating ur graphics card also.

    Yea it's an HDR problem. Just turn it off. Try and update your video card drivers. That usually helps, I have also heard that a lot of other people are having problems with HDR on de_train. As for myself, I've never had problems running HDR on any of the css maps.
