Default Night Vision Help (not a complaint)

Hi team - I hopped in the beta to start getting ready for Fridays launch and I noticed the upgraded night vision. Yay!

I did some hunting and got myself a fire beetle eye, but when equipping it I still cannot see anything other than my nameplate and a black screen at night (I am an Erudite). I was not expecting much, but I did assume I would have a slight glow around my feet that would allow me to see pieces of my character outline.

I checked with some players in game, and they confirmed they could see me slightly illuminated, but myself and others are just nameplates.

Am I missing a file or have a setting tweaked strangely? Any assistance would be appreciated!

It sounds like you have dynamic lighting turned off. It needs to be on for the lighting changes on green to work (possibly on blue as well) it's a line in the ini file that needs to be = TRUE. I don't recall what it is off the top of my head unfortunately.

Showdynamiclights=TRUE

do a ctrl F in notepad for dynamic and pretty easy to find.

I would be careful editing some of these text files with Notepad. On the UI team while adjusting some of the hard coded text in stringdb_us.txt we ran into some crashes and stuff because of how Notepad formats itís file/text. We had better results editing with Notepad++. Unsure if you will run into the same problems. But just a heads up in case.

Good tip Wenai. I did not realize that could be an issue. Will keep that in mind in the future.

Sometimes it is in the AppFile folder under your user ID in Documents and Settings.

Yeah I really hate how games started to do that. Put it in Program Files LOL Actually I just put mine on C:\everquest project 99 blue and everquest project 99 green .

Nice thing about an old program like EQ. you can move it all over the place and it dont care.

In fact one thing I usually do with eq once I have it setup right. Esp a custom server like this, is I take the folder and back it up to a second harddrive. Then if something gets messed up just copy back over.
