activating shadows and lighting in world editor tool
hello,
my question is simple it is about activating lighting and shadows in the world editor,
well after creating my world, i choose menu->play->clean all and play all
i got the scene without shadows lighting ...
am i missing something ? or it is normal that the world editor cant run the scene with full effects ?

RE: activating shadows and lighting in world editor tool
do you have deferred or forward renderer in video options? (simple renderer doesn't support shadows)

RE: activating shadows and lighting in world editor tool
what system do you have?
cpu, gpu, os, ram?
do you have the latest graphics drivers?
can you make a screenshot of the issue (including opened window of video options+environment options)

Maybe you haven't set gfx file for sun. Environment Options/Sun/Custom and Image line.
