why would you need this now? you can just go to the game.cfg and change it to cast shadows true.

We need this for ALL light sources! Or most. It's surprising how much dynamic shadows improves atmosphere. A monster walks past a candle and you see his shadow... but not in Amnesia.

It does exactly what it says it does. Although it's not a big mod, this mod improves atmosphere more than you'd expect.
