Ok, thanks. 

If I'm forced to choose the method you propose and the volume texture, covering the entire level. What you people would suggest ? Volume texture could be a huge memory hog. For a big level should be pretty high resolution in order to prevent noticeable errors in ambient illumination, especially ambient light(or shadow) bleeding through thin level geometry. I'm not really sure how to build that volume texture, because Direct3D 9.0 doesn't support rendering to volume texture. I could probably unwrap it to single 2d texture, but then I need to interpolate manually in the shaders between different "depth" slices, I guess.
