    I came from school today to find my newcompiled respawnroom all fullbright, I couldn't understand how that was possible so I checked my earlier compiles too (which I knew hadn't been fullbright before) and they were also fullbright! Just to be sure I checked other mapcompiles I've done and everyone I checked have turned fullbright and I have no idea why...

    I also tested to start a server with some other maps which wasn't mine (both custom and Valve's) and none of them were fullbright.

    I can't understand a thing :confused:

    do you have any lights in your map/spawnroom?
    did you compile with all the options ticked?

    you obviously didn't read my post?

    all my maps have become fullbright, and in almost every one of them maps I had lights and they have worked before

    the latest had all options but only one of the others

    1. i did read your post.
    2. you said it was a new compile 'to find my newcompiled respawnroom'
    3. did you compile correctly?

    obviously its not your game since the other maps arent full bright. your problem is with the new compile.

    if not, try mat_fullbright 0

    ok, no I didn't compile correctly (I happened to stop it little too early)

    but how does one compile affect all other compiles I have done? Some more than 6 months old.. I don't care of that particular compile (latest) but something is wrong and I don't like seeing my creations in fullbright :/

    After you've loaded a fullbright map, everything else you load will also be fullbright until you turn it off. If you had switched to an official map, same thing would have happened. Its no big deal.
