Hello everyone, I had some stuff to do in life and here I am back, maybe for the last time, don't take my word.

I'm gonna be showing you how you can enable Dynamic Flashlight Shadows in Counter-Strike: Source.
Warning: Make sure your video card supports DirectX 9 version.

Parameter:
-dxlevel 95 -force_vendor_id 0x10DE -force_device_id 0x1180
Copy the three parameters in the BLOCKQUOTE.


After you've pasted it in the Target section, press Apply and start the game.

Notice: If you're on Steam, please google How to set launch parameters for games on Steam.
If it doesn't work, go to Options, Video, Shadow detail, put to High.

Now the comparisons:















Please, be kind and leave a 10 on this tutorial :-]


Update: This parameter should also work with other Source engine based games.

    Ironic enough, even a lot of next-gen shooter or whatever game it is, which involves slightly darker sceneries does not support such feature whatsoever, some has it but if you turn on the feature, the game becomes laggy as fuk, and if such game has a console clone, you will not even have an option to turn this on.

    CS Source has this feature like ten years ago, and it doesn't even take a tiny bit of your CPU or GFX card to do the trick. In another word: Source rocks!

    Well, I'll give you a 10/10. :)

    IT WORKSSSSS:



    Not just in CS:S, but every other Source-engine game, just as the human mind would expect. :)

    Definitely have to try this.

    For those saying "Its already there"
    3 words.
    Intel Integrated Graphics.

    Some of us have the small spoon in the technological soup. Manual overrides are required. Often.

    Does this work in any Source game like Half Life 2 and episodes? Might be worth mentioning.

    Another thing, considering the nature of this tutorial is copy-pasting a parameter, I think Advanced Difficulty is out of the question, I'd say no more than intermediate to beginner.

    My own little contribution:

    On Steam, right-click any Source-engine game and click Properties.



    Go to Set Launch Options and:



    The red part is my +mat_dxlevel 70, lol.
    Speaking of that, +mat_dxlevel 95 could've been added, no?

    See, mat_dxlevel is the hardware DirectX version, and -dxlevel seems to be just the software part. That's at least as far as I know. I think that's the difference between +mat_dxlevel and -dxlevel.

    10/10
