I can change the desktop gamma and the full screen gamma, but when i enter HL2 or almost any other game it goes dark. Even when HL2 options are open and i slide the brightness bar all the way up, it is still very dark. Please help me!
    It also seems that the overlay controlls are locked, i have no idea what those even do. And now after messing around with it im getting a

    Have you tried, In your ATI control panel, under D3D, go to the color tab, and be sure move the "game gamma" slider a bit brighter...??

    For some reason I don’t even have a game gamma control in catalyst or any other control I have. I have all the new drivers and all the updates.

    BUT! I did figure out how to get around it for the time being! I set up an "increase gamma" hotkey and just increased it in the game. However, it still resets when I exit but at least I can see! :chef:
