Does anyone else have vision problems when it comes to seeing who shot you or just viewing the enemy in general?? I have adjusted brightness, video , etc, but I still have issues with long range viewing. Any ideas???

Possebility 1)

Old monitors are far less bright then new monitors, that is normal wear of the electron cannon that becomes weaker over time.

The result is a darker screen even if you set brightness to maximum. If this is the case your monitor needs replacement.

Possebility 2)

You set your screen resolution too high, if you do that everything on your screen becomes smaller. That is nice because ugly bf1942 engine graphics look better if they are small, but then again targets are smaller too and harder to detect.

Possebility 3)

You are sitting too far from a small monitor. Larger monitors can handle high resolutions better without making everything tidy small.

Sitting a distance away from the monitor actually isn't that a bad idea since CTR monitors radiate rontgen frequenty rays out of them that can break open/damage your body at cell level. ( that can cause cancer ) The rays are not very strong ( the monitor glass screen contains lead ) but it is advised to keep a minimum distance of 50 cm from the screen ( a stretched arm minimum ) This goes for TV's aswell. New CTF screens have no electron cannon, and do not radiate harmfull frequenty rays out of the monitor.

Possebility 4)

You need glasses.....

that is a really inspecific description. What problems? your eyes? the grease on the monitor? you need to be more descriptive in order for anyone to grasp what the hell you are talking about.

hazarding a guess here but....if you are talking about a general inability to see who is shooting you before you are dead and you are new to this Mod well...welcome to Forgotten Hope. it takes a while to get up to speed, even now after a couple of months of playing there are times when i "just" die and have to look to see if i have been shot etc or if i have fallen off something. rifles are largely 1 shot 1 kill to the body unlike vanilla (where if its not a head shot you have a chance to spin round to see who is shooting you) and you can get accurately picked off at incredible distances. if thats not what you mean then i am with the above evil guy and what he said.

no, I'm used to getting killed before I see who shot me. I have a 5 year old monitor and I think the resolution keeps me from identifying, for example, infantry among ruins, etc. I have a new 128MB Radeon 9800, which helps, but I'm wondering if a new monitor would increase vision range, or is that just the way its going to be with FH? Believe, I have no complaints with FH. I recently posted saying how glad I was to get off the BFV bandwagon.

Thanks for the feedback in advance

Some of the FH maps are darker than your average vanilla map, maybe this is what you are referring to (for example Breakthrough)? I kinda have to squint from time to time to catch those tags in the darkness.

Also putting on AA and AF fucks up the nametags for me (and the chat text) really bad. I noticed this bug has been fixed in BFV.

Powerstrip makes it so you can set the gamma to whatever you want. You can also set the hz to whatever you want, you can configure colors, you can clock your gpu. It's a really helpful program.

ive had my monitor for about 5 years now and am seriously thinking of getting a flat screen. They are better in many ways (and can handle higher refresh rates) but i just dont have any money. My dad might get me one for christmas tho. thats too long i think tho...
