L2 gamma and brightness problem fix

Recommended Posts

this topic has been brought to light several times in the history of lineage, since c4 the gamma and brightness of the client has been messed up. from adjusting the gamma on your entire computer, to being too bright and washing out the colors of the game people have been complaining about this for ages.

The gamma settings of the game adjust the brightness of your entire computer without your involvement. in fullscreen, or for those with only one monitor, this problem seems moot. you don't see the rest of your computer while playing the game, and you don't have the issue. however, using multiple monitors, or smaller windows, shows this glaring issue full blown. 

the scary part is: there is a fix.

(taken from another post containing these parameters)

Code:
[windrv.windowsclient]
windowedviewportx=1680
windowedviewporty=1050
fullscreenviewportx=1680
fullscreenviewporty=1050
menuviewportx=640
menuviewporty=480
brightness=0.800000
contrast=0.700000
gamma=0.800000

you can see the bottom three values are the ones to blame, and in my experience changing the values to such:
 

Code:
brightness=0.500000
contrast=0.500000
gamma=1.000000

fixes all issues. is there anyway we could get a sanctioned .ini file with these values defaulted in? or at least some other kind of work around. i would be most appreciative.

Checked, can't put it in patch, l2 are too dark for some people after it. Will put it as optional.

l2.ini

Thank you!
Using this l2.ini we need to start the game from l2.exe instead of the launcher?

@caesar1989 Yes, just make an additional folder and call it backup. Then if you ever need to update you can replace the ini file again.

Nice hint!

// Off Topic - start

I'm actually trying to automate this process (making a sort of launcher that handles this kind of things), so this kind of suggestions are really appreciated!
beside that, has anyone found or knows how to implement Morim's Mods on 2.0?
I really would love to include them in a custom system
