Hello there,

is there anyone else here who experiences this bug?

Light suddenly pops up and disappears in geometrical patterns, making it almost impossible to sneak through the shadows, because you never know where there is supposed to be light and where isn't.

Yesterday I encountered a fire pit where the light only filled a rectangular "tile" of the ground instead of a smooth transition over the whole area. When I moved a little, the "light rectangle" disappeared completely and remained dark, although the fire was still burning and meant to be casting a light.

I'm running the 32bit version of the game on lowest settings.

Thanks! I really appreciate the fast replies by the mods here! Apart from the bugs, this looks like another great game in my beloved Thief series!
