Description Grazvydas Ignotas 2016-06-07 13:41:26 UTC
Created attachment 124387 [details]

After some recent game's update the game renders way too dark when viewing certain objects. The problem goes away or reappears depending on camera position. Reproduces on both Haswell and Skylake, works fine on r600g and llvmpipe. Mesa 10.1.3 does not have such problems so I've ran a bisect:

Confirmed, thanks, but the game still shows similar symptoms, bug 96607 filled.
