MCDash8 vc Panel

Recommended Posts

I am using dx10 fixer with no other shader files.

The main panel in my mcdashQ400 seems to appear blue rather than grey which it is supposed to be.

I have tried adjusting my brightness and contrast for my monitor but it still looks blue.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks

Paul

what does it look like in DX9 and what color does it looks like if you disable DX10SF (uninstall libraries)

thanks for your response

I first uninstalled the libraries still the same.

I then changed to dx9 and still the cockpit looks blue rather than gray.

Actually with dx10 it looks closer to the gray.

I uninstalled the dash8 and reinstalled .

Any other things I might try?

If it's a similar colour when using DX9, and you still think it's wrong - it won't be a DX10 issue, but it then it can only be one of two - perhaps 3 - things: 1). the monitor - or Windows colour - is now out of calibration. Monitors will change as they age, and it's rarely noticed. 2). The texture colour for the 2 & 3D cockpit is wrong from the developer, or 3). your own eyesight has changed.

 

This happened to me after purchasing an ASUS 27" 2560 x a440 monitor, and found that its very nice blue was a real change from my FSX TripleHead2Go  (3 x 19" x 1280 x 1024 = 3840 x 1024) - they had a strong greenish hue! It took several hours of fiddling to get them back to match the default colour of the new monitor.

 

Personally - if it's closer to the grey that you expect - then leave it as is, as you can tie up days - maybe weeks of time trying to fix what you perceive is the wrong colour - and get nowhere!

Paul, could you post a screenshot of what you're seeing? Failing that, I recently stuck quite a few screenshots of the VC (FSX DX9) in this post. I think the colour is bluish-grey (and quite consistent) across the VC. How does this compare with what you're seeing?

 

Paul J makes a very good point that colour perception is subjective. This image makes that very clear: both squares A and B being the same shade of grey although your brain tells you otherwise!
