Default Re: Doom 3 alpha looks better than final?

Yes, self-shadowing seems to be disabled by default in the full version, however from what I hear there is a way to turn it on. If I'm not mistaken there was a user-made "ultra-high quality mode" setting that changed a few things, including enabling self-shadowing.

Also I noticed in the alpha that there were a few rendering anomalies with the self shadowing system (like the shadow seemed "broken" on a few of the polygons), perhaps this is why it was disabled in the full version?
