    Has anyone experienced this issue before? Launching EQ brightens my desktop/game automatically.

    Any known fix for this?

    in my experience it's due to a "gamma=XX" setting in the eqclient.ini file.

    EQ was written such that changing that level changed the monitor setting and not just for that window.

    I've had some, repeat, some success with deleting that line from my eqclient.ini file.

    It seems to only fix it temporarily though.

    I've seen this happen since I started playing EQ in 2004.

    Yup, it's done this for me as long as I've been playing. It's especially noticeable if you start the EQ client again to load a second toon whilst already playing one.

    I have this issue ever since I start playing in 2001. No matter what I did, it just won't play nice with others. It is really bad, you either have an acceptable brightness for EQ and everything else is in a washout state, or you cannot see a thing in EQ but all other programs are fine.

    Yes, dont expect a fix, they wont touch the engine. The main issue is after a crash: the desktop gamma is not restored to default. You have to use an external app like a gfx profile saver or relog to the game and exit normally...
