My Screen is a lot darker than FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

 

 

I am a newbie Converting from FSX to Prepar after over 25 years in the Sim and a lifetime of flying in real life (now retired and slowly building a new "cool" sim in my office for a little IFR Mentoring program I have developed for new IFR students). I am learning the Prepar 2.4 System piece by piece/issue by issue. I apologize for this newbie question in advance. I have installed the entire Mega Scenery 2.0 onto a separate 4TB Hybrid drive and it works fine--better than fine actually--the best I have ever seen in 25+ years of simming---but--and this is the issue--My Scenery although extremely clear and liquid silky in terms of frames--is very dark compared to my old FSX---Is there any fix or tweak for this. I thank anyone who can add information or help on this matter.

 

 

 

Cheers and thanks

For me HDR lighting turned on makes it darker but I personalky like it as it makes it more vivid, but it might not be your case, just though I throw it out there, try disabling it if you have it on.

I found that too and have adjusted my monitor settings to suit my needs.

Try to turn off HDR. On my plasma TV, HDR is just too dark. With HDR turned-off the color, contrast, and brightness of P3D is nearly perfect.

 

I guess everyone's monitor might be vastly different in terms of brightness and contrast. I feel that HDR works if your screen is really bright or you're flying in a well light-controlled environment.

Thanks to Everyone for the quick helpful responses---I will work on this when I get home and see if I can get irt all sorted out.

 

To ryanbatcund concerning Pilot Edge--you are so correct! Once you get your private license then the next thing to do is to learn to use the radio ant ATC like a professional. This is an almost impossible task for the average General aviation pilot--and since you can not be a professional pilot without an IFR ticket (plus others) there is a big roadblock faceing you during your IFR training.I am a recent convert to Pilot Edge---I have not flown much since retirement--certainly not any actual IFR--so after my first Pilot Edge flight I felt like I was flying in real life--when I shut down the aircraft after landing I was covered in sweat and could almost smell the JetA --I sat there for a few moments and then took a relaxing shower and put on clean soft clothes just like I did after long Actual IFR flights.

 

Cheers
