hi guys,

 

great new version! but i have one annoying problem: every 2minutes (sometimes even just 30secs) the gamma changes to a very dark picture. if i click at the gamma-bar in the menu and move the value a tiny bit, it gets back to normal.

it doesent matter if im ingame or just in the menu. i played every official version of tdm and i didnt change anything about my system and i never had this problem before.

 

any idea?

- Do you have aligned your gamma in your graphic's card driver? If yes, switch it to 1.

- Do you get the same issues fullscreen/windowed?

- Do you have some sort of injecter like enbseries or sikkmod installed?

- Maybe ppdate your driver... which one do you use and which graphics card?

I don't know how to solve your problem, but here's a temporary (more pleasant) solution.

 

When you have your gamma how you like it, pull down the console (ctrl alt `)

 

 

Now type r_gamma and hit enter to see your current gamma setting. Now pick a key you want to bind and type something like bind g r_gamma 1.x, where 1.x is your preferred gamma. During gameplay, when your gamma gets screwed up, just hit g to set it back.

You're supposed to use thedarkmod.exe. On the subject of exes, what graphics card do you have and what utilities for it are running in the background? Could one of these utilities be resetting your gamma? Does it happen if you play Vanilla Doom 3?

caedes: When the gamma resets, could you please open the console and look at r_gamma? Is this value the same that you use, or was it changed?

 

(If r_gamme stays but the screen changes, it is some external program. If r_gamma also changes, that it must be something inside TDM doing the change).

Oh dear. I found this thread with someone having a similiar problem (in Quake3 I believe), and no fix in sight.

 

Since you have an ATI card, maybe this helps:

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender

      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
