But I would say that one can see much better at night then in v2.2. It seems almost as if LM changed the graphics such that the brightness and colors adapt to the lighting conditions. Just as your human eye does. You can see this by looking at some dark spot in the VC (at daylight) and then quickly looking outside (works best with TrackIR). At first, everything appears as if they added too much bloom and the scenery is way too bright, but after a few seconds this changes and the brightness and colors change to a realistic level. I really like this effect...

Rich is having a "dark" moment ... I have a similar issue but ONLY when using the SLI AFRFriendlyD3D.exe process ... normal processing (Prepar3d.exe) is fine.  Also, when running AFRFriendlyD3D.exe and I record with ShadowPlay or Fraps, they come out fine (not too dark).

 

I'm thinking it's an nVidia driver issue, but I don't know why it's affecting some but not others.

 

Did you ever try using a DVI-D cable on the DVI-D output port on the Titan into the DVI-D input port on your monitor?

 

Cheers, Rob.

As it was 1:0 am no Rob - but I can try it tonight - I believe it was the same when I did have the DVI-D connected I just started using Display port cable recently

It all looks like FSX to me - but here's p3d HDR vs non HDR on my rig (so many factors like what gamma settings is your monitor at could change this)

 

Non HDR looks better (darker), but HDR has better contrast

Hi,

 

What's missing is the arial glow from city night lights.

I have flown at night but I can see the plane in my sim I can barley see it - has to be a monitor setting - but my brightness is up all he way so have a look in the nvidia control panel tonight

Honestly XP10 does a much better job at night than FSX/P3D.  Though with the right settings either FSX or P3D with Orbx lights can look pretty good.

Works for me... but it is dropbox and I have that on my PC - maybe that's why?

I changed it to Photobucket on my previous post. Should be ok now.

Thanks for the feedback Rich and Ryan.

I will stop using DropBox.
