I used to turn out all lights in room and fly night missions .Now with the backlight on screen ,nothing looks like real nights in FU3. A bummer ,Need a workaround or wait for technology to improve.CaptRolo

Captain,I notice the same problem with my laptop when staying up late in hotel rooms. LCDs just don't have the contrast that CRTs do. Some LCD TVs have great contrast (1500:1) but are too blurry for simming. At the end of the day, an HD LCD has much less resolution than a typical 22" LCD monitor.I tried something different the other day - I plugged into a 104cm plasma for a presentation. The contrast was great, as was the speed.Pity it cost $1500 and I'd have to sit 10 feet away to use it :-lolIf you adjust the backlighting to a lower level (I can on my laptop) at least you get almost-black, but then it's not very bright :-rollRegards,Jon Point
