Ok guys, i figured this would be the place to ask, so here ya have it.
My NS is kinda wacky. As you can see in the screenshot i posted at (i dont have 15 posts yet, so please copy and paste) liquidskye.com/images2/SS1.jpg... i cant see my cursor or the scoreboard really because its all in black. Now, when i'm in game, it turns green for active players, but i still have no cursor and anyone in the RR is still black All icons for players on the board are always black and yeah, you get the drift.
Also, in CO games, i cant see the exp bar either, its all black.
I'm running a Radeon 9600 Pro on XP Pro x64 edition and have all the correct and updated drivers (as of about 15 mins ago). I've tried OpenGL, software and D3D modes and its the same in all of them, regardless of resolution or color depth. Vsync is off and AA is set to the appropriate settings. I get 0 choke and no framelag even in uber-intense situations.
If anyone has any insight, please let me know.
Oh, and about every 5 seconds i get a message on the screen that says "Display doesnt support downloadable gamma". Any clues?
Taurus, you rock! gammaramp was already set to 1, so when i changed it to 0, it fixed the whole problem...and NS got a whole hell of a lot brighter too! I can actually see skulks in *dim* hallways as opposed to running blind. Thanks for the help everyone!
Ah. I once set it to 0 and that caused pretty much the same problem for me as you had with it at 1. The differance is that you're on xp64 and i use xp32..
From the ns 3.1 changelog:
O Added the ability to toggle off NS's gamma ramp:
- Added setting to the advanced options menu: "Enable gamma ramp"
- cvar is cl_gammaramp
- default is 'on' (1)
- Turning this to off will disable the forced gamma ramp. This should allow players on 64-bit systems and others who recieve "downloadable gamma not supported" errors to bypass the problem and set their gamma and color options via their video drivers.
