  • Gamma Problem

    After exiting Centrafuse, Windows gamma appears to be darker. I change it back to normal in my display properties but when I open Centrafuse the gamma becomes dark again. This is very frustrating.

    It remembers the settings you had in Centrafuse... When Centrafuse loads it grabs the system Gamma and sets that as the default... then it looks to see what your previous gamma setting was... either 1, 2, or 3... if you had it at 1 then the gamma will stay the same... 2 or 3 make it darker... you can set this mode by clicking the dim button in Centrafuse... When Centrafuse exits it then sets the gamma back to the default setting it read when the application started...

      You are right and thats what I thought it was from the beginning but it wasn't working. I recently used my car and it changed with no problem it must have been some freak glitch. Quick questiong though. I am using
      Iguidance 2 and tried getting past the OK screen with an app that I downloaded. It works in media car but not CF 2. Also when it starts up it does not fit in the designated area because it resizes. I saw other people talking about it but I don't think anyone has an answer. I have to hit the full mode and then go back to regualar mode for Iguidance to fit in the area.

        I will look into the resize problem... think I got that fixed in 1.5... I think skinbedder will properly get rid of the dialog and embed in CF...

          I have been trying to get to the bottom of this but had no luck following the instructions on the following page. Had no luck with version 2.

            Is it possible to change this behavior? If CF can change the Gamma w/i the program can't it change it back when exiting? IOW, right now it seems that it works like this:


            Lets say we have a scale where 1 is the darkest gamma & 10 is the brightest.
            Lets say our current monitor settings are at 5


            I launch CF and have it set to CF's brightest gamma (CF_1). CF exits, windows gamma remains at 5

            I launch CF and set the CF gamma to CF_2 (1 step darker). CF exits. Windows gamma is now at 4 instead of 5.

            I reset windows to gamma 5

            I relaunch CF (remember it's set to CF_2 gamma). I do nothing and exit.

            Windows gamma is back at 4.

            I repeat the same procedure, but this time do not reset windows gamma to 5.

            I exit CF, and windows gamma is now at 3.

            Relaucnh & exit CF

            Windows Gamma now at 2

            Reset windows gamma to 5.

            Relaunch CF.

            Set CF Gamma to CF_1

            Exit

            Windows gamma at 4 (dropped down one because CF dropped it down when launching at CF_2).

            Reset windows gamma to 5

            Relaunch CF (gamma preset to CF_1)

            Exit CF

            Windows Gamma is set to 5 (IOW, no change)


            This is confusing any annoying behavior. Can't CF make note of windows initial gamma setting, and then NO MATTER HOW you change the gamma in CF, when you exit the app, it resets the gamma in windows to the way it was BEFORE I launched?

            The way it is now I have to launch CF at CF_1, darken it, then brighten it before exiting, etc.

            Thanks,

              this is what it is suppose to do and what it does on my test machines...

              Anyone else have this issue? Could be your particular video driver or setup...
