Full Light on the Stand-Alone Client
If you've played the Flash Client you have probably seen its full light capabilities. The stand-alone client does have this as well, although it is lesser known.
- Go in to your advanced graphics settings.
Within the stand-alone client, go to (options menu) → Graphics → Advanced.
- Slide the Set ambient light scroll bar to the far right (100%).
- Uncheck Show Light Effects.
The option "Show Light Effects" usually causes black dots instead of the natural light effects. However, with 100% ambient light, you will have 100% light, and thus no black dots. Keep in mind that because all shades are gone, you will not see natural light anymore (e.g. red light from Fire or blue light from Frozen Starlight).
