Did you find that the levels were too dark

i`ve put my gamma brightness right the way up as it can go and i still get really dark areas.

It says in video options adjust gamma till you can read the 3 lines of text .I can`t even see 1 line of text thats if its in the black box .

So does anyone know how i can put my gamma up a bit more as 1.6 in the gamma options is still too dark ..

Cheers , Kenny

Assuming you meant you've adjusted them in game. You could get powerstrip to adjust the gamma ramps on the fly on adust them through the driver control panel be it atii of nvidia.

Aye, you get to use it AS WELL as a weapon, not instead of!

HL2 1 - 0 Doom 3

In actual fact, that would be more relistic if it read:

HL2 200 - 1 Doom3 (The 1 is for the lighting)

It was too dark on mine but my monitor is crap and makes everything look really dark.

I had to use powerstrip to ramp up the gamma pretty high, the trouble is I loose a lot of colour definition that way Really could do with a new monitor.

At least it HAD lighting though, on Doom 3 you could put gamma as high as you wanted it would stay dark because there was no lighting there at all in certain areas,

Think I've got gamma at 1.7 on mine. Ravenshome was a little dim in places, but nothing the flashlight couldn't sort

It's dark on mine as well, I just go to nvidia properties and whack up the brightness/gamma there, then I can see the 3 lines in the options.

It does make my desktop really bright, so I have to set it back when I stop playing.

Something like powerstrip should be fine.

Damn straight - you get given a flashlight for a reason...having your screen in varying shades of white like that of munk detracts from the developers' intended ambience.

Paddington looming out of a dark corner with a shiny nine. Yeah I see your point. You could replace the flying buzzsaw things with lovely floaty balloons.

Something creepy about killer floating balloons to! I think the best bet is to leave the cute/children area well alone, they make the scariest horror movies!

How about flying cakes? thats just comedy!

Fine for me, but then, so was Doom3.

If I'm in a dark area I assume it's dark for a reason and leave it that way. I have a flashlight so it's not a problem.

If you're having grief outside first try gamma - then if that fails march up the contrast/brightness on the monitor. More likely to be the telly than the card.

sorry if this sounds condescending*, but have you tried cleaning the monitor? That makes a ludicrous amount of difference for me...

I reckon HL2's darkest bits are about equivalent to Doom3's brightest bits tbh

*it may sound it but it probably doesn't spell it :p
