I have redirected the page Windlight to this one as if one forgets to capitalize the "L" in the search it took you to an empty page giving the wrong impression that a page on windlight did not exist.

Regarding Hardware and Setting requirements

I added these because I think it's important for people to know off the bat. However I'm not sure if what I have there is 100% accurate, it's based on what I've experienced myself (On an ATI Radeon 9800) and what others in the First Look group have reported.

Open Source?


Regarding We emphasize that you have a lot more control over how you look, so if you're basing your judgment without delving into the Advanced Sky Editor, we recommend you give it a go, and give it time.

This is backwards. Windlight doesn't give you more control over how you look, it gives you more control over how you see. No matter how you tune your Windlight settings, it won't have any effect on how you look to other people using Windlight. If avatars look significantly different between Windlight and the normal client and if people end up using different fixes to the default settings, the difference between how different people see the same thing (already significant) will become far greater.

The default settings shouldn't be set for "showing off Windlight", they should be set for consistency. Dramatic sunlit avatars should be an option, not the default.

  • This part needs more clarification — it's actually both. I'll update it. :) --Torley Linden 14:53, 18 December 2007 (PST) got hacked apparently got hacked, so the link to the presets no longer works. Could someone please provide a working link? -- Fred Rookstown 15:09, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
