Today I reinstalled promods pack and I have an issue with one specific cargo...don't know if it affects others. There's a black shadow under the cargo. I'm playing the game in OpenGL mode and I'm only using promods trailers and companies pack. No truck mods are activated.

Try using DirectX instead of OpenGL.

@Josh0 I could, but I get much worse performance playing with DirectX. To sum up, if I choose DirectX the game refuses to run with dedicated graphic card and it runs with integrated, resulting in very bad performance. Its a specific problem with my system. I have tried in many ways to address this problem but so far I have no clue about how to fix it.

Okay, I understand. I confirm this is a problem in ProMods 2.26 using OpenGL. For some reason the ProMods package is overriding the shadow TOBJ file for the Low Bed Semitrailer. This problem has been mentioned before in this thread: Truck with a black "tray"?.

In dx9 mode there's a palliative for a similar problem, maybe you could give it a try? Disable the fake shadows (generic dark areas) of trucks and trailers.
Edit this line in config.cfg to look like this:

Code: Select all

uset r_fake_shadows "1"

I have recorded the problem, and recommended a solution, in our bug tracking system, bug #11156. Hopefully this can be fixed in the next ProMods release.

That setting does indeed fix the problem for trailers seen while driving, but unfortunately it does not fix the shadows in the Trailer Browser window or the trailer preview images in the Freight Market window, so it is a partial fix.
