    Lighting, to be precise. All the modern tricks to make the monitor look like what your eye sees naturally.

    Try exiting and restarting Steam. It's happened to me a couple of times recently with TFC.

    I heard the lighting is amazing... Like, when youre inside a building for awhile and run out to the light your screen adjusts as eyes would...

    Who resurrected this defunct thread? That's been happening a lot lately!
    Do we have a NECROMANCER in our midst? :D
    DoD:S is too much of a performance hog for me to enjoy playing often.

    My system (Athlon64 3400+, 512mb ram, nv gf go 440 (it's a notebook)) can hardly handle this game. I run 800x600 with everything minimal in dx7 mode. It still sputters along. It's enough for me to kill inferior US Allieds with my k98k, though =0

    One trick I learned, to de-stutter-ize DoD:S, is to set the performance to favor the System Cache instead of programs, in "System --> Advanced --> Performance --> Advanced --> Memory Usage"
