Dark screen

Post by [McN]The_QuakR on Sun Feb 12, 2012 8:01 pm

I think I have to do some looking in my game settings, or wherever. This is a problem that has only popped up on this laptop but it is annoying when it happens. The game appears rather dark and even adjusting the brightness in the game does not help. Any ideas what may be up?

Im having the same thing on new PC.
Try /r_ignorehwgamma 1 and vid_restart

Also if you have Windows Vista/7, you should run Q3 in compatibility mode (Win XP).

Thx Mag. I am running 64-bit Vista, so I will give that all a try.
