View Full Version : The brightnes of the screen in Angel of Darkness

Yesterday I by accident found out that if I use a lower screen resolution than the normal one (1024x768) the picture gets much brigther. Now I can actually see something.

Earlier I have fumbled my way through the game with max. gamma and the brightness of the screen on max. So this complete change puzzles me especially because nothing else in the settings is changed.

I really hope you can give me the key to this mystery as I'd like to play in the normal proportions (1024x768) but with the newfound brightness.

The picture below is of my settings under normal circumstances (changing the gamma here seems not to have any effect - the scenery is still very dark).

I tried to make pictures of the difference, but the captured screen pictures were alike even though the situations in game were very different in brigtness.

I have just downloaded the patches and am going home to see if they have any effect on this. But I have found nothing in the FAQ about screen brightness.

Thank you in advance for any suggestion.

Yes first install patches v.42 and v.49.

Then, please post the complete settings display (scroll down and printscreen the rest as well).

What monitor do you have? Brand / type.

Please click on following link Diagnose.exe (http://www.tombraiderhub.com/download/diagnose.exe) select to RUN it then post the complete result in your next reply.

Whoops! I can see I forgot to bring some of the data you requested. Well right now these will have to do.

I have installed the newer version of Nividias driver and the 42- and the 49-patch. Still, the situation is the same. In the proper resolution the screen is very dark (I didn't even know there was a rotating figure in the middle of the title picture), in the 960x600 resolution everything is much brighter and more visible.

I don't know what kind of screen I have (an old one) because my family gave it to me along with a used computer. Is there a place I should look for the data (on the monitor itself or somewhere in the windows settings)?

What settings picture do you want? The picture I showed you is all I have. The parts I cut away was the sight of my desktop. Is there another kind of settings I should be able to enter?
EDIT: DOH! Now I understand what you mean. I have never looked much at that thing. I'll get you a better picture of the settings next time I visit the net. :cln:

Besides, there are many settings options I don't know the significance of. Maybe the problem lies there.

Hopefully I can bring you the needed information when I understand what you are looking for. Thank you for your time. :)

There should be buttons on the monitor to adjust the brightness/contrast settings manually. Did you try that?

I'm amazed you understand the loong texts the diagnostic program output. I have downloaded the sound card driver you suggested and will install it.

Here is the complete picture of the screen settings I get when I press the "normal" button in the menu:

http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f367/cfluen2/defaultminall.jpg

I don't know what it all does - just hope it's correct.

And yes, already when I played the first Tomb Raider I ever got (TR4) I learned to turn the brightness of the screen to its max. That's why it's so frustrating that I can't see anything of AOD. My screen is so old fashioned that it's a "button" I have to roll (analog?).

During the week I have played the game at the 960x600 resolution and marvelled at the beauty I have missed at the correct resolution. It's really strange that the resolution seems to be the determining factor.

The game suddenly got both easier and funnier to play now that I could see the environment and make an independent evaluation of the next to do in stead of clinging to the walkthrough to get a grasp of the situation. As an example I couldn't see the door next to the city guide and was stuck there till I read the walkthrough. With the "wrong" resolution I can see clearly and brightly.

I really hope you can find a key to this mystery as I would like to see the game in all its glory. Just ask and I'll dig up as much information as you require. And I'm very gratefull you bother to help us computer analphabets with our problems.

May I ask a sidequestion? I'm trying to slow my computer down to play TR1 where sound and vision fit in time.
It looked odd when Lara knocked Larson down while they in the audio side were still just talking.
The speed of my processer is 1.8 gigaherz. Do you have a guess at how much I should slow it down to make the visual side keep the pace of the audio side? Just a guess is enough. I don't want you to work hard this one. Thank you.

Hi Fluen. Your current monitor resulution is
Current Mode: 1024 x 768 (32 bit) (60Hz)

Change that in your TR:AOD settings panel, you have 75 Hz there.

I really think your monitor itself is the problem, being that old... You turned 1 button? There must be more buttons on it, if there're not, then it's a :cen: monitor. But i suppose there are more buttons, for brightness, for contrast, for colour adjustment. Look at the backside as well.

Start with 71. If not good, try 70 and 72, and determine which is closer in the right direction.

Fluen
18-12-06, 17:58
Sorry, Joseph. This time I didn't do my homework and checked stickys. :cln:

I'll look into the contrast thing too. What bothers me is that I have ajusted it to TR4 (after all I mostly play custom levels) and it rather scary that AOD and TR4 are so different when it comes to brightness.

So the resolution should run at 60 Hz and not 75? Hmm! Will look into that.

Fluen
23-12-06, 13:14
Amazing! :jmp:

I installed the updated sound card driver and changed the resolution to 1024*768 at 60 hZ and suddenly everything was bright and clear. It even looks as if the textures are much better aligned now.

Is all that caused by just changing from 75 hZ into 60? Strange that the program didn't do that automatically when I originally installed it.

Thank you so many times, Joseph. Now the game is a pleasure to play with both bright screens and correct proportions. :jmp:
