I checked that this tree shadow looks strange in my custom map. Is there a way to fix this thing?

There's this non-trigger model called something like Directional Light or something or other. That determines the angle
at which shadows are cast. I know there's one in the demo level, but I don't think I ever bothered using it as I assume
there's a default setting built within the engine's code.

*machf generally has an eye for minor details, he may be able to elaborate further -

Yes! i expected to see a darker shadow. Maybe, my edits in the start fog and global clut triggers are causing this lighter shade?

Hey guys! i know that this will sound a bit strange but the original SWP files of Trespasser disappeared. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it again to see if SWP files returned in game directory but nothing appears now. How can i see the original SWP files again?

Either just launch the level(s) again and the game will generate new SWP from the SPZ. Or just use SWPZ to drag and drop the SPZ and convert them into SWP, that is way easier. Then just keep a copy of the SWP files. :)

Worked, Thanks!
How can i get rid off the message that appears in TresEd when i load a level? It keeps saying this: "...path not found, please insert CD or cancel to load level manually"?

Just ignore it. That's when it either can't find the Trespasser folder in the registry or it doesn't actually exist. And it's better to get that error, that way you can have multiple versions of a level with the same name on different folders without any conflicts. If the folder/pathname were properly set up, TresEd would load some of the level files (the .SPZ and/or .SWP, in the first place) from that location instead of the location where you're opening your level, and leave you wondering "why doesn't it look right?"...

Uninstall the game. TresEd check for a CD installation through the registry. It is possible that the registry stuff is not deleted after an uninstall though.
