Installing the newer version of the Ambient Reality Effects seemed to have broken my hardware/software such that the thing strobes unless you set light gain at 100. And my preferred setting was light gain=10. This is a screencast of the GUI "strobing", and showing how it does it regardless of settings.
And no.. uninstalling and reinstalling the old version did NOT fix it. It’s like my 0 hardware is permanently crippled.
Why did I upgrade? I thought one of the buttons in my interface wasn’t working, and thus couldn’t get to my override settings. Turns out, that button requires a double-click, while the other ones require a single-click.
A great example of how an inconsistent interface can have disastrous consequences. . . Because I didn’t double-click, 0 of hardware is seemingly permanently damaged.
