Game stuck in fullbright mode.
Okay so I'm partway through Ravenholm, and I was telling one of my friends how it was odd that it was twilight during the boat chapter, but in Ravenholm, it's daytime. ...But then he said it's supposed to be nighttime there, and a few other discussions I checked mentioned that you go through Ravenholm at night.

Is... something wrong with my game?

EDIT: I think the game's just stuck in fullbright mode. Not sure what to do...

EDIT 2: Here's a copy-paste of what it says in the console:

Loading game from //MOD/SAVE/d2_prison_05.HL1...
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrrt)
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrbk)
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrlf)
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrft)
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrup)
Requesting texture value from var "$basetexture" which is not a texture value (material: skybox/sky_day02_09_hdrdn)
Redownloading all lightmaps

I'm not sure if that has to do with why the game is stuck like this? I'm in Nova Prospekt right now and everything is super super bright, which, judging by the current background on the menu screen, is not how it's supposed to look...

I've gone through the game quite a few times and I'm quite certain Ravenholm was always played at night...

I exited the game and went back in, and now it's night there. Very weird. Oo;

check if HDR is on, or use mat_fullblright 0

Try quiting the game and relaunching it(I had a similar problem in Nova Prospect). Tell me if this helps.

When you leave the dam of the boat chapter, it's at dusk. When you enter the Ravenholm, it's definitely at night. There is a 400MB HDR package for HL2, some machines may have error to run this package.

Theres no DLC, only episodes which are standalone. Hope this helps :)

I think the fullbright thing was on when I first entered Ravenholm, for some reason. It happened when I was starting to exit the mine--I went through a loading screen, then suddenly everything was super-bright before I was even outside. I exited the game and went back in, and the lighting was normal. Not sure what causes that...
BabyCharmander Jan 11, 2013 @ 10:56am 
...And now I'm having this problem everywhere else--the game keeps going into fullbright mode. The "mat_fullbright 0" thing doesn't work. What am I supposed to do here?
