Sky turns black when GLG-20 flies by
 
I tried searching GLG20, GLG-20, GLG 20, etc... and could not find this problem here or on the forums at Steam.

When I first download Sin Episodes through Steam, the game played without a hitch.

At some point, I'm not sure if it was a change to the game or a change to my computer, a problem developed.

Near the beginning when the first GLG-20 flies over and Jessica says what it is, the sky turns black.

As long as I am looking towards the GLG-20, the sky stays black. If I turn far enough so that it is no longer in my field of vision, the sky goes back to normal.

I have tried all the combinations of settings I could think of...

AA on
AA off
AF on
AF off
low detail
high detail
shadows low
shadows high

I have the latest drivers for everything and all Windows updates.

Windows XP Pro (all updates)
ECS L7S72 (all SIS drivers)
AMD Athlon 2000+
768MB RAM
ATI Radeon (catalyst 7.1)
Sound Blaster Live! (newest drivers)

I know my computer is pretty old, but HL2 plays at max settings just fine and Sin Episodes used to.

Nothing is overclocked, all drivers are official.

I will post a screen shot of what it looks like tomorrow if that would help.

I know its simple but have you tried verified the game cache files?

I haven't tried that yet.

I'm at work now. I'll try tonight and report back.

Thanks for the idea!

You rock!

I validated the cache files and it started downloading something. A moment later it stopped. I started a game and got to that point... and all was well.

Thanks!

No problem I am glad it is all sorted.
