    today i logged on after the servers came up after the patch today on 17Jan2024. the gamma no longer works and my screen is so dark that i can no longer see many things in the game. i was wondering how i can fix this? this is a terrible update if it removes gamma

    is it gamma or maybe a texture issue?

    For me Pok is fine, but other zones are pitch black almost...I think it is a texture issue on my end...but it is very dark in some zones...

    For me every zone is nearly pitch black

    Lots of people I have spoken to are also having the darkness issues. I have two computers both with different video cards that everything is dark but playable. I logged in on my wife’s laptop just to see and it is so dark I would not want to play on that not that we use it for EQ.

    If you use a custom UI make sure it's updated. "Gamma slider" bar in display options changed to "enhance vision" bar. I hadn't updated Sparxx and still had the "Gamma Slider" bar which didn't do anything (stayed at 0 and didn't increase brightness).
