Basic Lighting problem.

I loaded up Anthology today, hoping to play this level. Because Standard lighting brings my (weak) computer to a crawl during a firefight, I use Basic lighting, with all effects turned off (resolution doesn't seem to effect it much, so I think it must be CPU limited). However, when using basic lighting, all of the level light sources don't give off light at all in Anthology, and Year of the Tiger. Firing flares will still light up the level. The normal levels aren't black, so I was wondering if this is a problem with these levels, or even D2X-XL specific levels in general.

If this is a bug, I'll gladly report it the proper way. If it is a level specific 'feature,' perhaps that could be changed? Thanks for your help.

My computer is as follows:
CPU: Athlon x2 5000+
GPU: HD 4670
RAM: 4GB
OS: Windows 7

Doesn't seem to work with D2X-XL type levels.

Thanks for the quick fix. Also, -fullscreen 0 worked. Strange that it wouldn't work if I do ;-fullscreen. Thanks for your help.

That's because this setting defaults to 1 in D2X-XL.
