I finally got around to installing xwaupgrade and the game looks incredible, I can't even imagine how much work it took to get to this point. But there's one thing that bothers me... there doesn't seem to be any visual feedback or effect when you score a hit on a target with your lasers. Is this intentional, or did I install something incorrectly? Seems like a pretty major oversight if it is intentional, my weapons just feel like they lack impact, for lack of a better word.

I believe laser hit effects can be toggled using the in-game menu. You've probably got yours off. Press Esc and look in the Video Options (sorry, I don't have the game handy at the moment to check where).
