View Full Version : [Graphics Lag] Dynamic lights keep on getting enabled
02-01-2011, 09:54 PM
This dynamic lights option keeps on getting enabled whenever I start HoN. I disable it the beginning but it randomly gets enabled by itself. When it's enabled, my FPS drops to about 15 and cannot see any of the spells that are cast...mainly ulti spells i.e. I can't see Chronos ult bubble, Glacius ulti animation, tree ult roots and etc. This problem occurred after the 2.0 patch FYI.

Once you have saved your settings, are you closing HoN correctly?

umm..what do you mean by closing HoN correctly? I disconnect and then quit.
Exactly what you are saying, I just wondered if you were just killing the process.
Try deleting your startup.cfg (located in Documents/Heroes of Newerth/game/) and the restart the game. You can then select the options and it should hopefully resolve the problem.

ok. I deleted the startup.cfg and same problem.. :(
When you deleted startup.cfg it should have reset everything to default - switching dynam lighting on. Did you then try to switch it off, press apply, and then exit the game? If that didnt work, open startup.cfg in a text editor and search for dynamiclighting... change the value to FALSE, save the file and start the game.

Yes I tried switching off dynamic lights -> apply -> exit many times and it doesn't work.
In startup.cfg, I made SetSave "vid_dynamicLights" "false" but when I played a game and checked the startup.cfg after I closed HoN, it switched to "true." I also tried making startup.cfg read-only but it didn't work either..very frustrating.

bump. any updates?

Is this the only setting that is being reset? If you change something else, will that reset too?
