    Default Return to castle Wolfenstein

    There are several games on my computer that are difficult to play because they are too dark. Wolfenstein is especially bad, there is a level that is unplayable because it is pitch black. I have maxed out the game brightness and my monitors brightness but it is still too dark. There was a brightness setting page under Display Properties/ Advanced, but with subsequent display driver changes this page has vanished. Is there a registry setting I can change? Or the System.ini brightness value does increasing this make a difference?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Do you have a similar problem to any other games, or just this one? Have you found the "gamma settings" in the video options? How old is your monitor?? Older ones aren't that flash when it comes to brightness...

    Lo.

    There was a program called powerstrip which would allow you to set the video card up and use different profiles for different things. I think it came with a video card so it may be freeware or shareware.

    sounds like your moniters on its last legs. Is it new? What brand? I know a couple guys with problems like what you mention and they either have crap brand moniters or there 5-8yrs old and about to die.

    Powerstrip kicks ass. Problem solved. I downloaded it from www.fileplanet.com, installed it. Runs sweet as. Has settings adjustment hot keys which allows you to adjust the gamma in-game, on the fly. Brilliant!

    Most games have a brightness setting on the setup or options page within the game. Look for video setup or options.

    Have you tried adjusting the "gamma settings" ...? What graphics card do you have? How old is your monitor, etc...?

    Lo.

    Yes there is a brightness setting within the game but this is already maxed out. What other settings could be changed within the game that would increase the lighting?
