Have you suddenly realized that your phone flashlight isn’t turning on, or that the entire screen turned into a normal map for a frame? This can most likely be fixed with a simple change!
Go into your steam library, find cry of fear and right click. then select manage, and browse local files.
Once in local files, locate the “CoFLaunchApp.” Right click on it and go to properties. Once in properties, go inside compatibility and look for compatibility mode
Go ahead and click the box for “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” and select Windows xp Service pack 2
Once windows xp service pack 2 is selected, you can go ahead and hit apply, then okay. You can now re-launch the game through steam and most lighting errors should be fixed!
Note: This probably won’t fix all lighting errors, but it should fix the main ones.
cry of fear was made for windows xp, rather than any newer versions, although I don’t know why the service pack 2 is the only one that works for me.
Something you may notice is that the game might get more laggy or the framerate may look off, however a fix that worked for me was to go into settings and turn it to windowed mode, then turn it back to fullscreen and it worked well from there.
