If you're having issues with the lighting engine drawing as rainbow squares, this may help you unbreak it. (Some of this also applies to space parallax)

Restart BYOND

This probably won't fix it, but it's quick to do.

Toggle GPU acceleration

  1. Open spess.
  2. Click the SS13 logo in the left of the titlebar.
  3. Navigate to Client -> Preferences.
  4. Uncheck 'Use graphics hardware for displaying maps'.
  5. Hit OK.
  6. Go back to preferences.
  7. Turn 'Use graphics hardware for displaying maps' back on.
  8. OK.


Install DirectX

Sometimes BYOND forgets to install DirectX when it installs itself or something.

This is the version of DX that BYOND expects (MS Official Download): https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109

(You may need to reboot after installing this)

If none of these work, send me a PM and I'll see if I can help.
