I think to get some atmotsfere in a map is great but, to actualy make them so dark as some of them are, is realy to much. There is no pleasure for me to be honnest, and what did this mapper think, Zilion hours to make a great map, and then to put the light out,!! I just dont get it.
what maps are you talking about? that would help this discussion immensely edit: if you mean bombing the reich, that is a night map using british equipment and is historically accurate. i don't know about blacknight but its fun to play at night/
Ugh! I hate night maps. They are so hard for me because my monitor sux! :(
I think the tanks can see me better than I could see the tanks. It's a real pain when you walk right in front of a tank without noticing it.
The night maps are my favorite maps. If you cant see, well play around with you gamma settings. These maps are not even that dark, have you ever played some of the eod night maps? I love them the way that they are, and its a great change from all of the other daytime maps.
Most people love the night maps and the fact that there is hardly any light. Advice: your monitor seems to be too dark. Just try to adjust it manually (usually you have buttons on the monitor to adjust brightness;)
Got to admit my gamma is indeed on the dark side, and it helps to play after midnight. will try
i take it you mean bombing the reich?
Just crank up the brightness on your monitor while playing night maps, but the same thing could be achieved by making these maps just a bit brighter in the first place.
But I think that playing with gamma/brightness destroys the idea of night map, doesn't it?
Also it helps to turn off all the lights where you are playing, a dark room makes it easier to see :)
I enjoy the night maps, if it's too dark to see, well that sounds like someone needs to adjust some of their equipment. You are supposed to have SOME problems seeing, it is night. I have a feeling though a few people pump their gamma up for this one so it's brighter than a desert map. Most likely the same ones who camp the uncappable spawn on the map. ;) Sods.
