Never mind... got it figured out... I just bought and installed Half Life 2 on my PC. The problem is the game is too dark for me to see what the heck I'm doing. I've adjusted the gamma via the in-game option settings to be as light as possible. I've adjusted the brightness on my monitor to be as bright as possible. Still can't see well enough to even walk around. I do not have this problem with any other game or application I use. EQII was dark at first but the in-game gamma adjustment easily fixed it. I have an eVGA Nvidia GeForce 6800 128MB video card (not the GT) running the latest Nvidia drivers (18.104.22.168 released 4/1/05). I have an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ processor, 1MB RAM, using a MSI K8N Neo-FSR Nvidia nForce 3 250Gb Chipset motherboard. Any ideas? Edited to add: Was also too dark using the previous version of Nvidia drivers.
