If you didn't saw what i meant:
Try driving a police car in sp, and activate the sirens. You'll see that they'll flash.

In MTA, you'll see that they aren't flashing normally, but if you drive under water, and move camera, you'll see flashing. This applies to both, squad cars + motorcycles, and predators.

I haven't tested this myself yet, but my guess would be some of slush' DirectX rendering states aren't being resetted.

I thought sirens weren't synced anyway.

Ok, important addition:

This applies to EVERY vehicle, which has flashing objects (excluding flashlights): for example, try flying rc baron in sp, and then in mtablue. You'll see that in sp, it flashes red and green, but in mta it doesn't. It does though, when you're underwater (drown).

I suggest changing the report's name.

this one is odd as the rendering engine should be back to normal immediately after we're done drawing. I may be missing something here.

Fixed; problem dealing with render states. [verified in map creator]

Well, he said it was fixed in b16, so it's still going to happen in b15.

I guess this with a few other graphics glitches have returned with using the old text drawing methods

Still happens with certain weather effects.

I tested all weather effects between 0-215. Lights seem to be working.

For certain weather effects at certain times of the day you can't see anything at all (including lights) so I think that's OK.

Unknown what version this was fixed in so I'll just put 1.5
