    Default brightness much too dark?

    Anyone else think the default brightness 6 is much too dark--especially on dark maps? For example, the Deck map is pitch dark! What was Epic thinking?? I personally prefer brightness 8. What brightness do you use?

      I can't see a **** in deck, playing deck for me it's just some kind of completly dark/frenetic/rocketSpam thing.
      /offtopic i get a HUGE Fps drop at the portal near the pool/

      But in other maps (like shangrila) there's too much light...

        It's just fine for me at default... It may have to do with my quality LCD screen, or it may have to do with superior eyesight...

          Type this in your console.

          gamma #

          4.5 works best for me, results may vary.

          You can also adjust

          brightness and contrast respectively.

            This kind of thing can also be affected by the monitor someone is using. Sounds like on the monitors Epic set things with, it probably looked fine. Also, everybody has a different idea about what "bright enough" looks like.

              On vivid deck is kind of dark but not pitch black. On the normal post processing setting deck is plenty bright.

                I've cranked gamma/brightness up in UT since ut99, I've always found them much too dark.

                        lol looks like everyone here spends less time playing UT3 then looking for something to moan about. Maps, weapons, player models, FX, colors, vehicles, game style, balance, third-person mode.... now the def values Wonder what will be next..

                        ps lol there even was something about adding boob size slider into character customization interface

                            Yes but how can gamma set to 4.0 in game be set permenantly?

                            This command I have to use on every map switch or I default back to x?

                            I have set all Engine.ini base, UT and UTEngine in docs gamma to 4.0 but does not hold so I assume its hard coded?
