Problem with brightness
« on: September 25, 2006, 05:10:07 AM »
Don't know if this is the right place to post this but here it goes anyway.

Old computer and monitor are just fine but with newer machine and LCD monitor everything is too dark.  Turned the brightness all the way up in the FS2 setup and it didn't change a thing.  Everything that is normally grey is almost all black.  Don't think it is a video card thing because I have two computers on that monitor.  Funny thing is the monitor works fine for everything else and was originally too bright when I first installed it.  Anyone else running FS2 on a wide screen LCD (27 inch) or have a similar problem?  Any other way to fix it without adjusting the monitor so it burns my eyes out on everything else?

Oh BTW the credits/adds/intro when installing FS2 looked just fine and even show up in wide screen format.  It goes dark once I get to the pilot selection.  Didn't try the opening movie.  Bet that looks awsome if it comes up in wide screen.

No.  Nothing on the command line.  Should I have something there?

Hi, F'd Up Beyond All Recognition!  The BDHR is still around?  Ha!  I used to hang out with you guys back in the day, but I never joined.  I went by tractrpl, I think.  You probably don't remember me anyway.  You guys were cool!  I liked you guys cause I'm in the Coast Guard, and well, you know about sailors and alcohol, LOL.  Anyway, maybe you should install the latest version of SCP at the HLP http://85.8.136.169/forums/ (not letting me do a linky thing)   I dunno, maybe your disc is, uh, Fubar'd, LOL.  It's okay, you can download the whole thing at HLP.  That's why I have all the FS1 and FS2 discs saved to my hard drive.  :D
