How do you get blaster bolts to glow?
In JK and MotS, weapon effects are blacked out for some reason. Blaster bolts, crossbow bolts, etc, aren't lit up. The same goes for textures that would normally be illuminated (lights). This makes it kind of hard to aim without the crosshair, since usually I use the lasers like tracers. Anyone had this problem before or know how to fix it?

are all the settings set to their max in settings?

did you do a complete install with high graphics?

I did the complete install and I'm running at the highest resolution the game will allow: 1280 x 1024 x 16. Is there a setting somewhere else that might control this?

I'll try to post some pictures later tonight.

there is a crosshair option under gameplay that you can enable.... and please post pics cause im not sure what you mean by this....

also with MotS is colored lighting enabled?

Okay, I used a yellow circle to point out where the blaster bolt is in this one. As you can see, it's nearly invisible and looks kind of weird in game:

It's a little easier to see what I'm talking about with the crossbow:

It's like the alpha or glow textures aren't being applied. I've never had this problem playing on any of the much older machines I've used JK on.

My MotS CD has a nice crack in it so I don't know how it works right now.

Whoa! that is weird... Ive never seen that problem before.... I would try asking around on the #jkhub channel they know more about JK than I do when it comes to these things....
