I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make a mod where the lights are on throughout the entire building. Its kind of annoying and dark, which is supposed to make it scary but just for the sake of nostalgia i wanted to explore the building with it lit up lol!
I was actually looking into this recently, Slippyslides found the float values that controls the light sources a few months back but deleted the table. I have been working to find the floats again so that every room would have the same amount of light. Once that's done we can start getting fancy with LUA scripting for the timers and strobe effects.
I actually like the dark atmosphere but I do want to support this idea as I think it would be a very welcomed addition to experience the police station under a different light, like the original. Especially with these graphical advantages it would allow really interesting scenes to come to life. I hope to see this get done.

Wow, I have been waiting for this for almost an year! I would definitely send a PayPal beer for you guys if you manage to do this. RE2 was always my favourite game by far, and I was very-very-very happy to see they finally made a remake. The only thing I hate about how it turned out is that they introduced dark areas (with flashlight lighting) all around, completely changing the atmosphere.
I truly enjoy the game only in the few well-lit rooms (a couple around RPD and a little more around the lab), where in terms of light and colour, it looks much more similar to the original.
PS: This is what made me finally create an account after being a lurker for some time
yesss that will be epic to have all the RPD rooms lit up !!!!!!!
Finally, right? lmao
Maybe have it be scripted to keep with immersion?
Like remember when Leon/Claire have to go down the shutter to look for Elliott, and they first use their flashlight to look around? Maybe keep the lights off for now but when you later put the fuse on to open the shutter, have the lights turn on.
Is that even possible? haha
Also since CAPCOM didn't bother to give us manual flashlight and gave us boring/lazy automatic flashlight, would turning all the lights on the RPD affect this? I don't want to be playing automatic flashlight and Leon/Claire have their flashlights out when the lights are on. I know we have a trainer for that but trainers are more like workarounds than an actual solution.
Guys so I realized when you use the grenade launcher it lights everything up.. so maybe that bit of information helps? Everytime I shot at the third floor ceiling it looked like there was light..i wonder if anyone can manipulate it so that everything lights up with a grenade launcher but permanent... haha that would be funny
