This variable temporarily disables engine features for experimental purposes. It is mostly used for testing new features and comparing with the previous behavior. Currently the following modes can be set :


0 - Everything enabled (default).
4 - Switches between two different ABT rendering modes (not much difference).
8 - Disables the light manager, and renders lights in DirectX mode. This restricts the number of lights to 8.



Example (lite-C):

function main()
  patch = 8; // disable light manager
