I'm using Mesa (specifically Gallium on LLVMPipe) to run an old game 
called Star Trek Voyager Elite Force.

I'd like to report a bug introduced with version 18.0.0 and still 
present in Mesa master that completely breaks the shadows in this game.

I don't know how Mesa works internally so I'll just attach 2 videos:

  * Mesa 17.3.7: shadows work normally:
  * Mesa 18.0.0 and newer: shadows are broken:

The game uses the id3 engine so I assume other games are also affected, 
although I haven't tested it.

For what it's worth, the proprietary AMD drivers have the same bug.

If you need the game for testing, please let me know.
A demo is also available here:
