Had an issues with other distros when I set the brightness level within the game and exit then start it back up, the brightness doesn't get saved. So I manually go into the config and set it and all works fine. Now that I moved to Antergos Linux (arch based distro) I can't even adjust the brightness level inside the game and when I set it manually in the config it does nothing. Anybody have this issue?
Nobody has had this happen to them?
Have you checked permissions on the config? It might be that you can still edit it manually but not save from BZFlag.
It's very possible that the brightness control may not work with certain drivers, or it may differ in support between SDL1 and SDL2. Could you let us know what specific GPU and driver you are using, and whether you're using SDL or SDL2? The client version string should say -SDL or -SDL2 at the end to indicate the SDL version.
Hm, I just noticed I'm having the same issue on Arch Linux.when I close BZFlag, the gamma is reset to 1.018268 in the config.
My understanding of this problem is hazy but I think this gamma problem was introduced in Fedora Linux by the fix to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=891973 . Basically, the ability to read the actual current gamma setting was lost and instead BZFlag reads the default setting (e.g., 1.018268). Other Linux distros with SDL are apparently affected, too.
