EA switch puzzle

Is it me or the interface for the switches is not well implemented? I have to constantly move back and forth to find a suitable spot/angle to highlight the area(s) that a switch operates on. It was very annoying. Is there a special trick to it?

    Also, it doesn't seem to work really well with low render distance, I always need to crank it up for that.

    So they are all supposed to show? I’ve been guessing the far patches.

    This video snippet (start 13;25) from Xynode helped me figure it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cpi3YUIpGBI&t=805s&ab_channel=XynodeGaming

    1) I just stand inside the switch and block and aim at it, works pretty reliably for me.
    2) Given how long each switch lasts, you only need to memorize the first 3 (solo) or 4 (duo). Then you have enough wiggle room to just activate the rest blindly.

    I don't know if I'm going crazy, but I swear that in the advanced version of this puzzle, the switches change which patches they activate after each fail. I checked the switches, wrote down the order, but after I messed it up the order changed completely. Way to overcomplicate matters.

    I've seen this video. It's the part where I can make those white outlines visible is causing the issues. I cannot reliably find the spot on the switches to make those outlines appear.

    What I've done is have my crosshairs on the switch. Sometimes I need to move away and back to get the switches to light up, but try getting close and looking at the switch itself.

    I will try, but the interface does not seem to be reliably working.

    Swapping to first person made them work pretty decently for me.

    This is something I've never thought of to try. Will do next time I get this puzzle.
