anyone else having trouble in the desert and winter maps in BC2?

this is how it looks like for me


i cant get any good looks from far away on this map cause of the damn whiteness. Same thing with desert maps with sand.

Haha, I was wondering if they did this crap on purpose... Then I looked around.

Video>Brightness>Turn that crap down, they have it more than halfway on default. You can always mess with contrast if you wish, but brightness is the main culprit.

just recently started playing BC2 again, and on the winter maps its terrible. I literally can't see anything on a lot of them. I'll have to check the brightness, I didn't really mess with too much in the settings.

Yep, it's the brightness. When I first got the game at launch it was unbearable. I couldn't even snipe or drive tanks. After I messed around with the brightness I got it to a perfect point, so now everything is fine.

I believe it has something to do with Bloom or some such. You can edit the .ini file and set it to 0 and you won't have that issue anymore.

Did you always mess with the contrast? Keep messing around, eventually you'll hopefully find a setting you can deal with.

You can try that as well.

BC2 has a lot of things in it to try and simulate the human eye. Arguing weather it accurately does that is irrelevant and something I don't care to argue. Of course I second everyone talking about the brightness slider. Mine was set really high on default.

yea i have the same issue... pretty much stopped playing though... HBAO off and playing with brightness/contrast to try to dull the differences sort of worked. Its so unbelievably overkill.
