Did you delete shader cache? Aren't you usin "AS for P3Dv4" since "AS 16" would not work with P3Dv4.

Have this issue also, no fix found yet. I've gone back to 4.1 for now. Are you using an AMD card by any chance?

Ah okay, yep working fine for me once I rolled back to 4.1. Tried replacing some files from the shaders folder inside the p3d folder with some from 4.1 although that didn't seem to work, albeit a pretty rushed effort. I think the issue lies here somewhere, one of the files updated in 4.2 named shadowxx.xx has caused the issue, I just haven't narrowed it down yet. If you want to try fiddle around with replacing some of these, copy your shadow and shadow.fx files in that shaders folder from 4.1 and start replacing them in 4.2 one by one. I tried with all 5 or 6 of the files named shadow and it caused my shaders to not load, but you should be able to narrow it down if you try with individual files. If this happens to you just uninstall and reinstall the client and all your shaders will restore.

Yes.  And FYI there is a thread around here from a few weeks ago about this exact issue with 4.2, and that thread had more info about it as I recall.

Thanks for the info if you don't mind could you tell me or link me to an explanation of how to rollback since I don't see any need to be in 4.2 right now and i want my cloud shadows back.

I found the fix, uninstall/delete URP and your shadows will return.
