  • Darkened Screen

    Within the last two days the screen while I am in the game has become much darker than it was before. Even bright maps are dark. Is this happening to anyone else? and Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Thanks

    make sure the brightness on your monitor is set correctly, otherwise play with the gamma in ns options.. i dont know what makes it do it by itself though, strange.

      Two console commands you can play with are 'gamma' (max: 3?) and 'lightgamma' (min: 2?).

      Experiment with their values (take note, first, of what their values are NOW) and see what that gets you.

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

        I had a similar problem when I upgraded my video drivers (ATI card). I ended up scrounging around the net for various 3rd party gamma/brightness adjuster apps... honestly I'm not even sure how my current setup works at all. :)

        Anyway if you did upgrade your drivers and find this problem you might want to try either rolling back to the old drivers or searching for the 3rd party gamma/brightness apps.

          I ran a windows update after I posted and it seemed to be working again. So much so that I killed Enigma a bunch of times. ::shrugs::

                    I have the same problem because generally I prefer a darker desktop display. I was using Powerstrip for a while but for some reason it really started to act-up on me and filled my display with artifacts coming out of sleep mode.

                    I am now using Advanced Gamma Corrector, a simple little free program that loads with Windows, sits in the tray and adjusts gamma, brightness and contrast, etc. on the fly. All I need for gaming personally but you might want to give it a try.
