Solved: 7 Years, 11 Months, 3 Weeks ago Flickering lights/graphics.

I had bought the game pretty early but didn't tried it as it didn't work
But then a patch was released which fixed the black screen problem but added one more.
The problem is that the game doesn't light well enough.(dunno how else to explain it)
My video card is pretty crappy and old too.
I have tried everything that the FAQ said but it doesn't change nothing.
My video card is ATI Radeon Xpress 200 with 256 mb
1gigabyte RAM and 2.66 ghz CPU speed.
The game runs smooth though.
Tl;dr Old video card need workaround.

1) screenshots
2) update your drivers from ati.com
3) post your hpl.log from my documents/amnesia/main

You can see that the rocks shine more than the floor plus floor is almost impossible to see(completely black,no reflection)
It may be difficult to see the problem but I can make a video if that is the case.

X200 is below requirements to play the game, maybe if you experiential with different drivers (also from third parties like omegadrivers) you could improve the experience.

I apologize for my obliviousness but would be care to explain more about drivers.
I seriously have little experience with them.
