Brightness of Sim ?

Recommended Posts

hi guys

Coming from XPlane, I find the horizon and cockpit even seem quite bright. Even the instruments on the 777 PMDG seem a much lighter blue and orange (almost yellow) on the HSI. Is there a way to adjust this at all ?

Brightness/Contrast/Bloom/Colouration can all be adjusted in the HDR settings.

It should be that way, however there is no interaction on my system, too (only PTA helps).

I would try:

Nvidia Control Panel

Display

Change resolution and look for item3

Use Nvidia Color Settings

Output Dynamic Range and change it to FULL.

Having this change will give you full dynamic range and nice colors (hopefully) if is not something else.

Within PTA you can set the cockpit lighting to your taste along with how deep you want the shadows to be and how bright the light is. It makes a huge difference.

Although this may sound a bit radical and unsophisticated, try just disabling HDR.  I had your same issue and spent hours adjusting HDR settings, then tried PTA, but eventually ended up just disabling HDR and I'm very satisfied.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so one size definitely does not fit all in this specific case.

First adjust the Brightness/Contrast/Bloom settings in the sim. If you disire more control, try PTA, which is a great tool.

Thanks guys ! Just what I wanted to know. I dont think I'll adjust anything on my card because I use X Plane as well so I dont want to be stuck there, Ill look at some of those plugins.
