is there any way to "lighten" the dark maps by even a little bit without cheating? obviously i am not talking about the maps that are set during the night! with the other dark maps... are they just dark? or meant to represent a battle fought at dusk/dawn? i admit they look great, but wtf my eyes hurt like hell after a few mins and also i keep getting stuck in houses etc when i spawn cuz i just can't even see the doors/exits sometimes. i understand some people turn off all the lights in the room and this does help, but then i just keep pressing the wrong keys! hope this hasn't come across as a moan, like i said the maps look really great but are just differcult to play so i am wondering if anyone else feels this or if i have my settings wrong perhaps? maps include (forgive any mistakes on the names) falaise pocket, sector 318, fall weiss (unless its changed recently) and even Wake (which is still 1000X better than the original) amongst others. once again, this is not a moan as i understand the need for varying settings on maps and i do enjoy them sometimes as it means a different way of fighting, just some seem a little too dark sometimes, to the point i have to log off from the ache in my eyes.
I didn't make it!
Check the Brightness setting on your monitor, I have mine all the way up and everything looks great when I play. Other that that I have no Idea.
I made Wake to be set at dawn. I believe the real attack was at night/early dawn. The internal version before the public version was much darker and there was one with the original sky, which was fine, but in 'redoing' the map, I wanted to change it around more. Other than that I don't know what to say. I have more of a problem with the night maps myself.
ya, i will mess with my monitor a bit because i love Wake, playing as japanese is a great tough fight. i have given up on any night maps as i just can't see anything. i only posted this thread because i have blood in my eyes from playing FH over christmas from staring at the dark maps :) i think i will just have to find the lighter area's of the maps and play there in an ambush or something, similar to how i avoid the city on Orel so my frame rate is ok. i do love the skies on the darker maps though.
Not only on the monitor,but the videosettings also has adjustments for gamma,brightness and so on.
Found that out yesterday.:)
i agree after i played operation black night my eyes hurt like hell! and wil im gaming i need to orinteet on feeling ... but i think its cool ther is a night map;) now i turn out the lights only a smal light to see my my keys and mous...
Speaking of nightmaps,would it be possible to dim the text and minimap?
The difference in luminance makes the (old) eyes hurt pretty quick.
Fall Weiss and Sector 318 are dark, yes. Got my monitors brightness all the way up. I get some headache after playing for a while, time for a break then. :)
if you have an ati card, you should have a small icon bottom right of ther scree, turn gamma up.
Works best, and isn't even cheating, usually all gamma are set too low.
same for nvidia,just checked on box 2.
