Re: Screen goes darker at random times

I still have to change Energy Saver options to take effect before playing. For example, I keep it on Vertical Sync, but if I play without changing it to Off or FPS Limit and back, FPS will go to something like 200+ and drop to ~30 when there is intensive activity on screen. It I change it to either ...

Re: Screen goes darker at random times

I recently noticed that if I do minimise (F4) after launching the game and then switch back to it, the brightness is as it should be.
It's quicker than going through the menu and adjunsting the brightness.

Re: Screen goes darker at random times

Hi blast. Sorry I didn't mention this. I have since moved to an i5 7200 with HD620 running Win10 x64 1903. When I was missing the option to change brightness it was on this machine.

Re: Screen goes darker at random times

I have reinstalled bzflag, issue still there.

I've had a look through the .cfg file, but couldn't see anything related to brightness level. Not sure if I could add a line to set the brightness.

I am running Win10 v1903 x64, everything up to date, including drivers.

Re: BZFlag gets real

@FS maybe they had tiny, but being tiny without a flag is cheating!

One more question.
Agent West, why are there girl named tanks only?
