Ok, I will work on fixing those issues. BTW, there is some other problem introduced -- some staged materials started to glow. I'll fix that too, so please delay applying this patch to master.

which map are you refering to with the staged materials? i've tested with "map day +alienb2" and there it looks fine (except those just posted issues)

Oops! I didn't notice that shaders were switched off when lighting is disabled, and few other things. Now glowmaps are working for me, but patch is not as clean as I hoped.

Here it is:

i've applied your fix now - thanks a lot

but ... ;)

the soldier markers and the box tracer are glowing - looks like the glowmap is active for R_DrawEntityEffects

First tests have shown that this problem is finally eliminated. Thanks a lot to all involved in fixing this.  :)  8)

Btw., somehow I like the glow of the soldier markers & the box tracer  :D

MCR, thanks! :)

Mattn, yes, there were few state leaks remaining. Hopefully, attached patch will plug all of those  ;) At least, I traced everything that is called from R_RenderFrame(), so it's supposed to be complete.
Still, glowing cursor box was niiice :) Maybe, reintroduce it as a feature? That's just a few lines of code.
