I don't know if this is a feature that is built into my computer or is part of the W101 programming, but when I normally launch W101, my monitor contrast goes up and darkens slightly. This makes the game look much less washed out and I really like it. However, this has not been happening as of the past couple days. The game will launch with no change in contrast or brightness. However, when I pull up the esc menu (the one with graphics, music, sound, etc. settings), the screen will flicker for just a moment between the darker setting and the normal before going back to the washed-out look from before.
I hope this makes sense, it's kind of convoluted when I try to explain it. Again, I don't know if this is an issue with my computer or wiz, so I hope someone else can tell me whether they've had this happen in the past couple days.
Update: I recently got a program called Flux, which tints the screen orange at night to protect your eyes, and performing the same operation of opening that options menu in game will disable Flux for a second or two each time the menu is opened. Dworgyn or anybody else at KI: if you have any advice on what I could do, definitely let me know. This issue is starting to hurt my eyes lol
Is there really nobody who even has advice on this issue? I have restarted my system, everything is up to date, it happens consistently no matter how much I log out/back in and it's seriously annoying. Kinda don't like being ignored on this issue...
