Some Models Shaded Black


So I was playing Black Mesa on my new laptop and I noticed a large majority of the models (window frames, server racks, railings, etc.) were shaded black. (you could still see the texture and the shaders but it was just very dark).

If you need Images of the settings I use I can provide.


Here is the fix for Black Props.

Add these commands to game launch options:

-force_vendor_id 0x10DE -force_device_id 0x1180 -dxlevel 95

Remove “-dxlevel 95” after you close the game or your settings will reset every time you run the game.

Here’s how to add commands to the launch options
Right-click on the game title under the Library in Steam and select Properties.
Under the General tab click the Set launch options … button.
Enter the launch options you wish to apply (be sure to separate each code with a space) and click OK.
Close the game’s Properties window and launch the game.

Always remember to post you system specs, including the operating system, when requesting help.


Worked for me, Much appreciated.
