The map loads fine for me un current trunk, so that part of the problem should be fixed?

Where do I need to go in the map to see the fog lights and their issues? A quick noclip fly around the initial area shows no visual differences to 2.06.

From Discussion here:

To address the flickering, I replaced RB_T_RenderTriangleSurface( surf ) with
RB_DrawElementsImmediate (tri).

This seems to resolve almost all issues but... "Thief's Den 3: Heart of Lone Salvation" AI and particle based trees have either flicker fog or no fog depending on your movement or theirs.

Duzenko has also raised the concern that RB_DrawElementsImmediate is far more costly than RB_T_RenderTriangleSurface or RB_DrawElementsWithCounters.

@cabalistic, yes, it loads fine since rev 7442. I only mentioned that because I couldn't find the exact commit that broke the fog light because of the load issue.

To answer your other question: see svn rev 7471. If you replace RB_DrawElementsImmediate with RB_T_RenderTriangleSurface you will notice greyish flickering in the sky right after player spawn.
