This is an old gammabug, nothing new, but with the right combinations you can get the best view there is!
It could have happened you got a screen like this accidently before by just messing around. Now we will show you how to do it on purpose!

dualinity gamma tweak

This little trick can be done by entering the following in the console:
set r_ignorehwgamma 1
set r_gamma 3
vid_restart
By setting the r_gamma to a value between 0.5 and 3 you will get a different effect. The lower the gamma, the darker the environement will be compared to the models.
Don’t do a vid_restart, better change map to get the right effect!

Here are some examples of several gamma combinations.

Values like 0.5 will make the models bright, but the environement very dark.

This happens with gamma set to 1

And this is the result when using gamma 1.5 or higher

To do this you should add this in your autoexec or in a new cfg.

Punkbuster might kick you for using gamma’s like 0.5, check every server you play on with pb_cvarlist! Raising the amount to something like 0.6 or maybe even 0.501 works too!

It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it’s always possible to find something new. :)

You have tested it and writing form your personal experience or you find some information online?

I use it all the time I play in ET, I also found it elsewhere but I’ve rewritten it because it was worth the share.

PS: I created a new website dedicated to ET > http://wolfensteinet.com

I read a article under the same title some time ago, but this articles quality is much, much better. How you do this?

I just happen to stumble to this site and it is a nicely written read, a little bit on the short side, but a fairly satisfactory one.
I definetly adore the layout too, it is fairly very simple to navigate.

Your site is actually unique. Keep going that way.
