vmware and ut99

Post by darksonny »

Hi
i was testing windows 7 on vmware 17 (host o.s. is windows 10) and installed ut99 with latest version 469d all runs fine. But I do have a problem, when I try to manage the brightness/lightning ingame by hitting F11 does not change the brightness while Im playing. Is there any workaround to control the brightness its seems a little dark (i tested opengl/d3d9 and xopengl)

Any help please? thanks!

d3d9 use gamma ramp. Doubtful if it work.
Also ensure it change brightness by this key.
Just use preferences UI for set brightness.

Also consider use d3d11/ICBIND renders.
DirectX11 renders which faster from D3D9 and not lag on CTF-XV-Blice map:

DX11: https://github.com/dpjudas/UT99VulkanDrv - it is new. Not one what be bad from ModDb and make all oiled.
Despite name, there not only Vulkan renderer, but also for DX11.
Download link: https://github.com/dpjudas/UT99VulkanDr ... ses/latest
(Need enable Texture Atlas in settings, for make it CTF-XV-Blice not lag)

ICBIND: https://github.com/metallicafan212/ICBINDx11Drv
Download link: https://github.com/metallicafan212/ICBI ... ses/latest

latest patch (v469d for now) required for use this awesome renders.

I mean open in game settings and set brightness via slider.
