Black square shadows fix
So recently alot of people have been experiencing the problem with shadows looking like black squares. This is caused if you have an old graphic card and install new nvidia drivers.
To fix this you have to type "r_shadows_gamecontrol 0" in the console (the reason it's not "r_shadows 0" is that this one also disables your flashlight).
Unfortunately you have to type it everytime the map changes, but you can easily make a bind for it. Another fix would be to install older nvidia drivers.
